OCZ Releases the PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB kit, One of the Fastest High Density Memory Solutions Available
Delft, Netherlands—February 8, 2008—OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (LSE: OCZ), a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB, one the fastest high density kits in the world. Incorporating all the features that make the Reaper HPC series the top choice among gamers and overclockers, this ultra high-speed DDR2 is designed to meet the growing demand for faster high density memory for both productivity and gaming applications. With the price of top-speed DDR2 more affordable to a wide range of consumers, the Reaper HPC 4GB kits offer incredible performance at an attractive price.
“DDR2 is starting to adopt 1066 MHz as the new mainstream frequency, not only for extreme overclocking but also for high system memory densities,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “In order to maximize the system performance, especially in the latest games, 4GB of memory are more and more becoming a must have…but it is also necessary to maintain the throughput regardless of the increase in density. The new PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB kits combine the best of two worlds by delivering extreme bandwidth at 1066 MHz data frequency at 5-5-5 latencies, in combination with advanced heatpipe-based thermal management to again raise the bar for high system memory densities.”
The latest PC titles that make use of DirectX 10 crave more than the standard 2GB of RAM for the ultimate gameplay experience and the highest settings. Computer enthusiasts and professionals utilizing high-bandwidth video, music, and graphics applications will also benefit from the ultimate balance of speed and density the new PC2-8500 4GB Reaper HPC offers.
