    As part of OCZ’s Platinum series, the PC2-8000 2GB modules are engineered to satisfy the demands of overclockers and enthusiasts, and designed to deliver the performance and speed gamers require for today’s graphic-intensive DirectX 10 PC games. At a blistering 1000MHz, the 4GB Platinum Edition runs at faster speeds than typical 2GB modules, offering incredible bandwidth and stability on the latest platforms.

    For 64-bit Vista™ users who need the performance of high speed memory, the PC2-8000 Platinum 4GB kit is the ideal upgrade from the standard 2GB of RAM. The OCZ PC-8000 Platinum series was developed to provide a superior computing experience that ensures the best possible gaming and productivity while maintaining excellent value for enthusiast upgrades.

    “System memory density is a significant cost factor in the overall configuration of any personal computer,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “However, retrofitting a system with an abundance of memory does not necessarily translate into having to spend an abundance of cash. By releasing quality products like the PC2-8000 2GB modules at a low price point, OCZ Technology once again demonstrates the commitment to providing the customers with the best possible solution in the market place.”

    The PC2-8000 Platinum 4GB Edition memory will be available in 2048MB (2GB) modules and 4GB dual channel kits with an MSRP of $159.99 USD. All modules are 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and compatibility and feature high quality, platinum-mirrored XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ Platinum Edition memory module is backed by the industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

    Is it me, or is there no mention of voltages and timings? 1000MHz doesn't do much good if it's some crazy settings like 2.3V+ CAS6.

    I wont be buying anymore DDR2 ever, I am hoping that by the time I upgrade my motherboard again, DDR3 will be much cheaper and more worthwhile.
