Sunnyvale, CA—February 7, 2008—OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB, one the fastest high density kits in the world. Incorporating all the features that make the Reaper HPC series the top choice among gamers and overclockers, this ultra high-speed DDR2 is designed to meet the growing demand for faster high density memory for both productivity and gaming applications. With the price of top-speed DDR2 more affordable to a wide range of consumers, the Reaper HPC 4GB kits offer incredible performance at an attractive price.
“DDR2 is starting to adopt 1066 MHz as the new mainstream frequency, not only for extreme overclocking but also for high system memory densities,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “In order to maximize the system performance, especially in the latest games, 4GB of memory are more and more becoming a must have…but it is also necessary to maintain the throughput regardless of the increase in density. The new PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB kits combine the best of two worlds by delivering extreme bandwidth at 1066 MHz data frequency at 5-5-5 latencies, in combination with advanced heatpipe-based thermal management to again raise the bar for high system memory densities.”
The latest PC titles that make use of DirectX 10 crave more than the standard 2GB of RAM for the ultimate gameplay experience and the highest settings. Computer enthusiasts and professionals utilizing high-bandwidth video, music, and graphics applications will also benefit from the ultimate balance of speed and density the new PC2-8500 4GB Reaper HPC offers.
To ensure superior stability and performance over the entire life of the memory the Reaper HPC Series makes use of an innovative cooling solution to more effectively dissipate heat produced by high-speed memory. The thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit is ideal for overclocking where every degree matters. Featuring the new all- black PCB, the Reaper HPC 4GB edition is a stylish upgrade for case-modders and system builders.
The new modules also offer instant overclocking right out of the box with EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) programmed into the SPD. PC2-8500 Reaper modules will immediately boot at the rated specs on the latest generation of NVIDIA® SLI™ chipsets. Although seasoned enthusiasts will get the most performance benefits from tweaking the memory settings, EPP eliminates the need for manual configuration and makes the benefits of overclocking available to the complete range of consumers looking to get the most out of their systems.
The PC2-8500 Reaper HPC Series will be available in 4GB (2x2048MB) Dual Channel Kits, and are rated at a blazing 1066MHz at CL 5-5-5. Although the OCZ Reaper HPC series can meet all enthusiast demands, this high-capacity, high performance memory can become a user-friendly household item for the complete range of consumers looking to maximize system performance with additional RAM. As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, Reaper HPC PC2-8500 modules are backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support so you can push your high-performance memory to its limit.
