OCZ Technology Group, Inc. today announces two new 1600MHz parts including the world’s first enhanced bandwidth high speed DDR3. The newest additions to the OCZ DDR3 family offer enthusiasts performance they can really sink their teeth into and feature blazing fast speeds of 1600MHz and the incredibly fast latencies of 7-7-7 and 7-6-6 on ASUS motherboards.




The new PC3-12800 Platinum Edition was developed to offer enthusiasts a memory solution that takes full advantage of the capabilities of the Intel P35 and X38 Express chipsets. At 1600MHz, the OCZ PC3-12800 Platinum and is rated to run CL7-7-7 to truly take these next generation platforms to new heights.

For enthusiasts OCZ is introducing the PC3-12800 EB (Enhanced Bandwidth) Edition featuring the ideal balance of sheer DDR3 speed and enhanced timings. This memory is specially designed and optimized for the latest generation of ASUS motherboards. As one of OCZ’s legendary Enhanced Bandwidth (EB) editions, the DDR3-1600 Platinum EB increases effective memory bandwidth through the optimization of memory latencies between the system memory, the chipset, and memory controller. At 1600MHz, the PC2-12800 EB edition is rated for 7-6-6 timings on ASUS platforms.

“DDR3 is pushing the performance envelope beyond the limitations of the DDR2 concept,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology Group. “By nearly doubling the frequency, the nominally higher latency cycles amount to overall lower access delays in combination with substantially higher bandwidth. Moreover, using OCZ’s patent-pending Enhanced Bandwidth technology, the OCZ PC3-12800 EB series is effectively undercutting the fastest access latencies ever achieved in any double data rate memory in the personal computing marketplace.”

Both OCZ Platinum DDR3-1600 modules will be available in 2x1024MB dual channel kits. OCZ has been working closely with the leading platform providers to ensure optimal performance and compatibility on all the next generation computing platforms that will be introduced later this year.

Each module is 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and compatibility and features a proprietary platinum-mirrored XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreader for the most effective heat dissipation. As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, the DDR3 series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

Price is still the limiting factor on DDR3 modules. Im not sure, but I thought I read somewhere that corsair or someone has timings on their ddr3 modules down in the 5-5-5 range or so?
