Yesterday, OCZ and ASUS announced an alliance that has led to the introduction of the first motherboard and memory combination rated at a staggering 1000MHz.

Working together, the two companies managed to break the previously unimaginable barrier of a 1000MHz with OCZ's EL PC2-8000 DDR2 memory modules and ASUS' P5WD2 motherboard.

The ASUS P5WD2 motherboard is based on Intel's 955X/ICH7 chipset combination. It also features a host of premium features including something a little new known as 'The Next TV'.

According to ASUS, there's no longer a need for a PVR solution when using The Next TV, as the WiFi-TV care, which features TV tuner functions, allows users to watch, record, pause and replay interesting parts of the programme you're watching in real time. Interesting...

OCZ are keen to bring its PC2-8000 memory to the market within the next few weeks, and we may well see a demo running at Computex later this month.

This should please enthusiasts who favour an Intel-based system to fulfil their overclocking fixation. You can find more information about these ground breaking memory modules on OCZ's product page.
