Default OCZ Releases SPD Reprogramming Utility

OCZ Technology this week opened up a public beta test of its SPD-Z utility. The SPD-Z utility allows users to reprogram the SPD chip on OCZ memory modules. The SPD chip on memory modules contains information of the module’s capabilities, such as speed and latencies. OCZ’s SPD-Z allows users to reprogram the SPD of any OCZ memory module, as long as the utility can identify the module as an OCZ part. OCZ will provide the files necessary to reprogram the SPD from its repository in the OCZ forums. OCZ plans to provide a variety of SPD files in the upcoming weeks, with new SPDs to enhance performance and/or compatibility.

Nice.

Here's more info from an OCZ employee posted in this stories comments there at Dailytech:


You are absolutely correct, the SPD tool is best used to further tweak parts, and is designed for enthusiasts. This may not be a tool for the casual user, but enthusiasts are always looking to get the most out of their products and we wanted to give more options and control to those interested in continually pushing the performance benchmarks. The ability to change or update the SPD based on your unique requirements is simply an added value.

The SPD-Z tool allows customers the ability to both tweak performance, and possibly even improve stability. If improvements are made to the SPD, or a particular platform changes or evolves, now there is an ability on the customer s side to address the change. For those seeking more management over their products the SPD-Z allows them to go ahead and update what was normally not accessible, without fear of voiding their warranty.
