OCZ Announces the World’s First High-Density PC3-16000 4GB (2x2048MB) DDR3 Kits

OCZ Technology Group today premiered the world’s first PC3-16000 4GB (2x2048MB) DDR3 kits to provide even greater performance and productivity on the latest DDR3 platforms. Designed to offer the earliest adopting enthusiasts the advantages of high-density memory coupled with the highest speeds available, the OCZ PC3-16000 4GB kits make use of the unbeatable overclocking capabilities of the latest platforms and takes DDR3 to unimaginable performance levels.


“It is no myth that higher memory densities make it harder to push higher clock frequencies,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “OCZ Technology pulled off this seemingly impossible task with the release of the world’s fastest high-density memory solution. The new OCZ DDR3 PC3-16000 Platinum Edition kits combine two 2GB modules for 4GB system density running at 9-9-9 latencies and a record-breaking 2GHz data rate. All of this is achieved at only 1.9V which falls well within the voltage tolerances of any DDR3 memory controller currently on the market.”

As part of the renowned OCZ Platinum series, these new high-density 2GHz DDR3 dual channel kits are ideal for computer enthusiasts and professionals utilizing high-bandwidth video, music, and graphics applications, along with gamers experiencing the latest PC titles that make use of DirectX® 10 at the highest settings. Among the latest high-density DDR3 offerings, OCZ will also add a 4GB kit option to the popular PC3-14400 Platinum Series as well, for users taking advantage of 1800MHz speeds on the latest motherboards. Without sacrificing the industry-leading overclocking capabilities of the OCZ Platinum line, you can have the ultimate balance of speed and latency at the highest possible densities your system demands.

The OCZ PC3-16000 and PC3-14400 Platinum Series will now be available in 2GB modules or 4GB (2x2048MB) dual channel kits and are backed by an industry-leading lifetime warranty. With the fusion of rapid memory speeds and high-density DDR3 architecture, the new OCZ PC3-16000 and PC3-18000 4GB kits are the ultimate breakthrough for advanced platform performance in gaming and intensive applications.

hey this is BS 9-9-9 timings are way to f'ing loose DDR2 1066 4-4-4-12 would perform better

The frequency is really uber high. I used to think that way too but then this thought came to my ming: if tight timings are so great lets all to back to SDR!

I think perhaps it would be possible to underclock these things, and tighten up the timings. Heck, you might get to 4-4-4-12 at ddr3-1000 which would still be pretty fast.

All the 1066MHz DDR2 kits on the market are CAS5. CAS4 is only achieved via OCing, and not many 2x2GB kits will do CAS4 1066Mhz. These sticks are faster than stock DDR2 1066MHz. But if you really want to compare CAS4 1066 to this, you need to OC these modules too. I bet they still end up faster than the DDR2.

No.... your wrong.... very wrong. :laugh:

You need to read some about memory timings.:ohwell:

No offense.:D

Let's not get silly here. SDR is quite a step back from DDR2. It's been shown (though not always applicable) that tighter timing DDR2 IS more effective than higher frequency DDR3, just as tighter DDR2 is quicker than faster clocked DDR2.

High frequency means you have faster data bursts; this is good for loading menus, stream-benchmarking etc.
Tighter timings means you have quicker random data acces. This coupled with a good GPU and properly tuned CPU results in the best performance for 'real time' software, i.e. games(especially online) adapative applications and etc.

At the price of DDR3, especially a 2X2gig kit, any benefits are seriously negated by the cost.

I really haven't been able to grasp why they went from DDR2 to 3, seems like a step backwards. I can only assume they were going with some sort of numerical logic of 'hey 3 is better than 2, let's move forward,' that or they are driven to please and accomdate a community of synthetic benchmark testers....

no thats not incorrect 1066 @ cas 4 would be roughly equivalent to cas 8 @ 2133mhz

this is why my DDR800 sticks can keep up with DDR3 sticks and my old DDR1 sticks outperformed these DDR2 sticks my DDR1 did 2-3-2-5@ 550mhz which is roughly 1100mhz @ 4.0 timings


we have had several threads about this and unless half the forums wrong i think your the one who needs to read up on timings

woops missed that :roll: i tohugt they had a couple 4.0 kits out :ohwell: guess not though
