OCZ Technology Group unveiled the new and improved OCZ NVIDIA SLI-Ready branded memory product family. The new PC2-7200 SLI-Ready and PC2-8500 SLI-Ready modules now feature the first ever exclusively designed heatspreader for NVIDIA.
OCZ worked closely together with NVIDIA to optimize these modules specifically for current and next generation NVIDIA based platforms. As part of the NVIDIA SLI technology ecosystem, these modules undergo a rigorous series of tests by NVIDIA and are certified to provide performance-minded enthusiasts and gamers the quality, compatibility, and stability they seek when building an SLI gaming system.
With the innovative black XTC heatspreader and bold SLI-Ready logo, the new OCZ SLI-Ready series allows gamers and system builders to build a system that showcases the elite performance of SLI certified platforms, a selection of "interoperable components," all of which elevate the standards of performance for enthusiasts and gamers when operating together in the same system.
"OCZ and NVIDIA have been working closely together to deliver the ultimate experience to high-end consumers with the new SLI-Ready series of modules," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development, OCZ Technology Group. "Through our cooperation, we are able to deliver a customized solution for NVIDIA gamers, enthusiasts, and SI's, one that addresses both the EPP memory performance and cooling requirements with a solution that is tailor made specifically for these customers."
As an SLI-certified memory product, the PC2-8500 and PC2-7200 memory modules are built with an EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) programmed SPD to provide a true Plug and Play overclocking feature that eliminates the need for manual configuration and makes memory optimization easy for the complete range of consumers. These are just the first two of many SLI-Ready parts that will be released in this series.
