    OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the next addition to OCZ’s line of NVIDIA certified Platinum DDR2 memory modules. The new PC2-8500 series is SLI certified ensuring ultimate breakthrough compatibility for advanced SLI platform performance.

    OCZ PC2-8500 Platinum modules operate at 1066MHz with 4-5-5 timings and are part of the certified NVIDIA SLI technology ecosystem compiled of a selection of “interoperable components,” all of which elevate the standards of performance for enthusiasts and gamers when operating together in the same system. Qualified under a series of rigorous tests conducted by NVIDIA, OCZ SLI-Ready modules are certified to provide performance-minded enthusiasts and high-end system-builders the quality, compatibility and stability they seek when building an SLI gaming system.

    As an SLI-certified SDRAM product, PC2-8500 Platinum memory modules are built with an EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) programmed SPD to provide a true Plug and Play overclocking feature that eliminates the need for manual configuration and makes memory optimizations a household item for beginners and gamers.

    “OCZ is dedicated to delivering the fastest solutions, and the new 1066MHz SLI-Ready memory modules are the latest addition to our EPP featured lineup,” Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “These new modules are cross certified by NVIDIA and feature a perfect combination of high speed and aggressive, tight timings for the ultimate stability and maximum overclockability.”

    All PC2-8500 Platinum SLI-Ready modules are 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and feature platinum-mirrored XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ PC2-8500 module is backed by the industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

    Still cutting their nose to spite their face. Catering to one side of the PC market benefits no one.

    I would buy the ATi ones, they look cool, and would look good with a ATi set up. These, well they kindda look the same as regular memory. I don't understand, why they are not green.

    Still though, PC2-8500 isn't bad. So if the price was right, I would get these modules if I had a DDR2 System.
