OCZ Announces EL PC-3200 Voltage eXtreme Gold Edition@ 2004/11/23
With the introduction of OCZ's PC-3200 EL Gold with Voltage eXtreme (VX) technology, users will be able to utilize computer memory in a way that outshines traditional DDR. Voltage eXtreme memory is designed to operate at a high voltage in order to increase the speed and stability that is usually unobtainable when conventional modules are pushed to run at a higher voltage. Typically, memory performance increases with voltage, but with many traditional modules this can significantly reduce stability and increase the potential for module damage. In contrast, VX DDR performance is enhanced as voltage is increased, without any adverse affects to stability whatsoever.
Running at the standard 2.6 volts, OCZ PC-3200 Gold VX already boasts 2-3-3 timings, but at 3.2 volts the memory is capable of blistering timings of 2-2-2! Additionally, the modules are more stable and exceed normal performance capabilities at the higher voltage setting.
Furthermore, the Gold VX family is also built with OCZ's renowned Enhanced Latency technology to facilitate lower latencies than normally possible on most standard memory modules. With the combination of the new Voltage eXtreme feature and the proprietary Enhanced Latency technology, OCZ has created the ultimate high-performance memory that thrives under high voltage.
"The VX series constitutes a special extremist series of modules specifically geared towards the high-end overclocking community with the necessary infrastructure in place to meet the power demands of these DIMMs," said Dr. Michael Schuette, Director of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "These modules are not for the faint-hearted average user since they require memory supply voltages of at least 3.0V to unleash their full performance potential."
All OCZ memory is 100% hand-tested, includes toll-free technical support, and is backed by an industry-leading lifetime warranty. In addition, OCZ EL PC-3200 Gold VX modules include Extended Voltage Protection (EVP®) and are rated to handle up to an incredible 3.5V without invaliding the OCZ Lifetime Warranty.
