OCZ Technology just keeps them coming. Their newest addition, a PC2-8500 DDR2 kit is specifically designed and engineered for platforms powered by Intel chipsets. These will be available in 1GB modules and 2GB dual channel kit, with 5-5-5-15 timings and their Titanium XTC heatspreader.
"DDR2-1066 is rapidly becoming the new mainstream memory of high-end DDR2 systems," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "The new PC2-8500 Titanium series is the perfect complement for the Core2 design and Intel's own chipsets, thereby forming the foundation for ultimate performance in the current gaming landscape."
Compatibility is a big issue today and every time you turn around the corner there are more and more "specifically designed for" signs. OCZ is no exception, but is nice to see they are not taking sides. A while back they announced an 8GB memory kit optimized for AMD systems. No word on pricing for the new PC2-8500 DDR2 kit yet.
