OCZ Brings New Reaper HPC Design to Two New High Performance DDR2-800 Kits

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Sunnyvale, CA—April 26, 2007 — OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced two new additions to the Reaper HPC family, reflecting OCZ’s dedication to evolving their memory lineup for enthusiasts of all walks of life. The two new kits will be available in two classifications depending on the platform at hand and desired performance levels. While both feature DDR2-800 speeds, the PC2-6400 Reaper Enhanced Bandwidth Edition is designed for optimal performance on NVIDIA nForce 680i chipsets.

As one of OCZ’s legendary Enhanced Bandwidth (EB) editions, the PC2-6400 Reaper EB increases effective memory bandwidth through the optimization of memory latencies between the system memory, the chipset, and memory controller. At 800MHz, the Reaper EB edition is rated for 4-3-3 timings on 680i platforms, while the standard PC2-6400 Reaper is rated to run CL4-4-4.

These unique DDR2-800 modules feature the Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit) heatspreader which is engineered to deliver superior silent heat dissipation over traditional heatspreaders. The Reaper HPC is an innovative cooling solution developed by OCZ to effectively minimize heat produced by high-speed memory. As heat rises into the thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit, it is dissipated through a compact aluminum fin array. By strategically guiding performance-robbing heat away from key memory components, the unique Reaper HPC design maximizes passive cooling to improve longevity and stability of the modules.
