Default OCZ Technology Announces the Gamer eXtreme XTC DDR2 Series

Sunnyvale, CA—December 27, 2005—OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the release of the first DDR2 modules designed to make use of the recently introduced OCZ XTC heatspreader design. The Gold series modules will come in PC2-4200 and PC2-5400 configurations ranging from 512MB modules to 2GB dual channel optimized kits.

The Gamer eXtreme XTC DDR2 series features the innovative XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) Heatspreaders. The unique design used in the XTC heatspreaders optimizes the thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreader designs. In this manner, build-up of heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of the memory components is offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same time, mechanical stability is maintained.

Both PC2-4200 and PC2-5400 GX XTC modules offer superior stability and performance for the modern Intel gaming platform. Operating at 4-4-4 and 5-5-5 timings, these DDR2-533 and DDR2-667 solutions offer lower latencies than standard DDR2 modules. DDR2 XTC will be offered in 2GB dual channel kits for the ultimate memory upgrade for the latest graphic-intensive PC games, such as Battlefield 2, Half Life 2, Doom 3, and Quake 4, which deliver the best end-user experience with 2GB+ of memory.

“Based on the overwhelmingly positive results and feedback on the XTC heatspreaders, we believe that we need to make XTC available for a wider spectrum of modules than originally planned,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "By employing XTC heatspreaders on our premium Gold DDR2 GX memory we are able to offer high-end gamers and enthusiasts a superior solution that addresses the unique requirements of the latest 3D intensive titles.”

All OCZ PC2-4200 and PC2-5400 Gold GX XTC Edition modules are 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and compatibility and feature high quality, gold-mirrored XTC heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ Gold series module is backed by the industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind. The combination of the award winning XTC series and cutting-edge OCZ DDR2 architecture is the ultimate formula for incredible performance from Intel systems.

of the games mentioned only BF2 sees an increase in performance going from 1Gb to 2Gb, the others don't show increases worth the extra cost. And the reason BF2 sees an increase is due to the "not so system memory friendly" programming of the game, which is a true system hog.
