OCZ Technology Group today announced the 8GB Platinum PC2-6400 "Quad" Kit.
These optimized kits offer users the option of both high speeds and high capacities needed for their demanding gaming PC and Vista-upgraded desktops in a 4 x 2048MB solution.
"To have eight gigabytes of memory available in the system may sound like overkill for the average user; however, in any mega-tasking environment the requirements for system memory can skyrocket and easily break the 4GB boundary, thus far considered as the penultimate amount of system memory," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "The new OCZ2P8008GQ kit is the first to bring eight gigabytes of memory also to Intel architecture-based systems to explore workloads which previously were a challenge within the personal computing space."
The PC2-6400 8GB Quad Kit is ideal for enthusiasts, professionals, and DIY system-builders using Windows Vista as their choice operating system. As the ultimate upgrade for hardcore gamers, the latest DirectX-10 PC titles require large amounts of memory to deliver the most stable system performance and maximize game play.
The 800MHz Platinum Edition runs at 5-4-4 timings, offering tighter latencies than standard 2GB modules, and provides increased bandwidth on the latest platforms.
The 8GB PC2-6400 Quad Kits also feature platinum-mirrored XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation.
