    OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced their Vista Value Upgrade series which includes the highly anticipated 4GB (2x2048MB) dual channel kit. The new lineup of memory is optimized for perfect compatibility for those transitioning from Microsoft Windows XP to Vista.

    OCZ is dedicated to providing memory solutions for the latest industry milestones, and the Vista launch is the ideal platform for OCZ to provide a necessary system component for all Vista advocates. The OCZ Vista Upgrade series was developed to convert a sluggish recently upgraded system into a superior computing experience ensuring the best possible gaming and productivity on Vista systems.

    The OCZ Vista Upgrade series will be available in both DDR2-667 and DDR2-800. For gamers shifting to Vista and who prefer the performance of high speed memory, the PC2-6400 Vista Upgrade 2GB kit is the ultimate upgrade from 1GB of RAM. As a Vista up-grader, the PC2-5400 4GB dual channel kit will provide maximum memory bandwidth and deliver the most efficient operation possible.

    “With the arrival of Vista consumers will now be able to take advantage of a new level of multimedia, gaming, and productivity when paired with the right hardware,” commented Jacky Huang, VP of Product Management, OCZ Technology. “For the optimal experience, OCZ is excited to release our new Vista Upgrade series of modules which have gone through the strictest testing with the full spectrum of Vista versions to deliver a perfect balance of memory performance and stability across the full range of applications.”

    Each memory module features a proprietary OCZ XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreader for the most effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ Vista Upgrade module is 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and compatibility and is backed by an industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

    Well since MALWARE insists that all PR HYPE should be viewed as honest, accurate, FACTS, even when it's complete B.S., and he continues to abuse me via e-mail for stating an opposing point of view, I'm leaving Tech Power-Up because I refuse to cave in to the censorship here that serves only to perpetuate false, misleading information distributed by companies who's only goal is financial gain. I have nothing to gain financially by shilling, contrary to this site and other sites that pander to product suppliers.

    I realize there are a lot of gullible and tech challenged people in the world and I hope that my posts have helped educate and open the eyes of those who would be foolish enough to believe most of the dribble that passes as a New Product Release. If truth in advertising laws were enforced most companies and hardware review site personnel would be locked in jail.

    Have a great life folks !!! I don't need this place.

    P.S. I think the screen name MALWARE says a lot about the person hiding behind it.

    Timings? Nice they mentioned it... :rolleyes: Probably don't want to scare people away.


    Here's another Vista upgrade kit required to to get "xp like" performance. See pic.

    Sorry about this but I have to crack it...

    Now the one last thing we need is the *ANTI Microsoft* programming patch for Vista, a lot of reverse engineering...

    Then it will work.

    5-5-5-15 @1.8v for both kits according to the links. I guess it could be worse. I wonder what that 4GB kit could do with some extra voltage.

    Yeah it's slow, but I'm willing to bet cas4 is possible on the 2GB kit at least. OCZ's cas4 kits usually run at 2.1v, so these would probably run a lot better with some extra voltage. My OCZ platinums can only manage 5-5-5-15 @ 1.8v too. That 4GB kit is what has my curiosity peaked. It's no worse than G.Skill's DDR2 800 kit that runs at 6-6-6-18(iirc), but those didn't overclock very well at all. I think we'll have to wait a little while before we start seeing 4GB kits with tighter timings.
