OCZ Technology Group has made another major leap in the development and performance capabilities of DDR1; OCZ was able to reach remarkable speeds of DDR1-772 at 3-4-4 timings.
Surpassing current DDR performance boundaries has been a major driving factor in OCZ?s mission to provide unbeatable memory products. Reaching DDR1-772 with timings of 3-4-4 is not only a milestone in memory performance, but rivals the speeds of the fastest DDR2, all with superior performance to DDR2 modules. While 772MHz was attained, the best performance was at DDR1-660 with 8442 MB/s in SiSoft Sandra Memory bandwidth.
"Our test results clearly show that DDR1 has not reached the end of life phase yet,? said Dr. Michael Schuette, Director of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "Compared to state of the art DDR2, as showcased by e.g. Kingston, we can still push the performance envelope quite a bit higher while maintaining a more consumer-friendly price level. Especially for the high-end, AMD-oriented market segment, the new high-speed DDR1 solutions open up new dimensions in desktop computing."
