lanaddict.com: After the smoke has cleared and all the dust has settled, what do we have? Well, I think we have one very impressive PC3200 dual channel memory kit from OCZ! While it may need its timings loosened up a bit fairly quickly in the overclocking game, there is no denying that OCZ has a fantastic product here. About the only thing they could improve upon would be increasing the voltage they'll cover under warranty from 2.9V to 3.0V+.
cluboc.net: OCZ is at it again. There latest offering gives you the most desired memory chips available right now with a guaranteed high FSB and low latencies. It's hard to ask for anything else in performance ram, but OCZ still delivers more. When most RAM companies would say, that's good enough, OCZ says, we want you to overclock it so we are going to warranty it up to 3.0V.
cluboc.net: Once again OCZ has provided us with some new and exciting memory modules. This time we have PC2-4200 Enhanced Bandwidth Platinum Revision 2 Limited, the newest memory from the OCZ labs. OCZ has listened to the enthusiasts and have delivered DDR2 memory that utilizes tighter timings. As enthusiasts we aren't going to settle for RAM with a CAS latency of 4. The memory speed has to be phenomenally fast to compensate for those loose timings. So, OCZ has released their Enhanced Bandwidth memory that runs at 533MHz with CAS 3-2-2-8 timings.
3dgameman.com: This dual channel memory is rated at 625MHz DDR with a timing of 3-4-4-10 and is specifically designed for DFI nForce4 motherboards. While this default speed is blistering fast it can be pushed even further. Overclockers will adore this product for its raw performance, stability and reliability. Without a doubt, this memory is the best of the best!
techpowerup.com: Right now, DDR2 is only available to the Intel Platform. The biggest drawback people are complaining about, is that DDR2 is running at slower timings than traditional DDR. That is why OCZ, who have always been designing products with the enthusiast in mind, came up with a memory that can run at 667 MHz but at tighter timings than the standard JEDEC Spec. The maximum clock we could get out of the memory at 2.4V was DDR726 at Timings of 4-2-2-8.
ocia.net: Not mentioned above is the fact that these modules are based on Samsung's infamous TCCD chips. These chips have a great track record and are highly sought after by overclockers and enthusiasts alike. EVP is the abbreviation for Extended Voltage Protection, under which OCZ offers a Lifetime Warranty for these modules all the way up to 3.0V ? 5%. ULN (Ultra Low Noise) technology uses various printed circuit board (PCB) techniques to reduce the amount of electrical noise that is present in all high-speed ICs.
viperlair.com: It appears as though DDR2 memory is becoming more and more mainstream. It also appears OCZ, with its EB Platinum Edition, is serious about staking the claim of performance in this arena. With CL timings that you would be hard pressed to match, especially at PC2-5400 speeds, looks like the stake is driven deep.
overclockers.com.au: Until recently we thought that heatspreaders are not necessary for DDR2 modules, because DDR 2 runs cooler than DDR1 due to its lower voltage. DDR2 modules in previous tests became just lukewarm. We had to change our opinion after running OCZ PC2-6400 at 2.3 volt. After a while these modules become quite hot and a quality heat spreader is therefore useful.
techpowerup.com: OCZ has released the PC4800 Elite Edition in reply to user's claims that their 4800 Platinum modules used Samsung TCC5 chips instead of TCCD. OCZ guarantees that only Samsung TCCD chips are used on the PC-4800 Platinum Elite, but at a higher cost. These modules are specified to run both 2-2-2-5 and 2.5-4-4-10 timings. At the CL2.5 setting up to a whopping DDR600.
neoseeker.com: We've been doing quite a few memory reviews over the last couple of months, and today we bring you our review of OCZ's Platinum PC4800 Elite DDR memory dual channel kit. I find it interesting to try new memory modules out, as I like to squeeze the last drop of performance out of the memory modules, and I often find that even performance memory kit manufacturers leave a bit of headroom that to exploit.
ocia.net: True to OCZ's standard, these modules are protected by a lifetime warranty. Timings of 3-3-2-8 1T are pretty impressive considering the capacity and rated speed on these modules. EVP stands for Extended Voltage Protection which is OCZ's commitment to enthusiasts, allowing for users to run their modules at voltage levels of 3.0V ? 5% without voiding the lifetime warranty. ULN (Ultra Low Noise) is a technology that uses various printed circuit board (PCB) techniques to reduce the amount of electrical noise that is present in all high-speed integrated circuits.
driverheaven.net: On September 26th, 2005 OCZ Technology Group launched the new OCZ DDR PC-4000 Platinum Enhanced Bandwidth Edition 1GB modules and 2GB dual channel memory kits . This series of memory modules were designed to give enthusiasts and gamers the ultimate combination of speed and density. The OCZ PC-4000 Platinum EB series combines the advantages of high density 1024MB modules, with lower latency timings. Their goal was to provide superior performance for the wide array of graphic intensive applications and gaming titles.
viperlair.com: A lot of people, and manufacturers (AMD) have steered clear of DDR2 due to the high latency, regardless of speeds the latency canceled out any performance gain so it just wasn't worth it to switch to DDR2. That is all starting to change with much higher speeds and latency dropping with each new product DDR2 is finally coming into it's own.
ocia.net: As mentioned earlier, I'm going to run the OCZ EL PC3500 Gold Gamer eXtreme 2x512Mb kit through the benchmarks with the EL PC4000 Platinum XTC 2x1024Mb kit for a performance comparison. The PC3500GX kit is the fastest memory kit I've had in my hands to date, so it is an excellent performance mark for comparison. I've been waiting for the day a 2Gb kit outperforms this 1Gb kit.
driverheaven.net: It wasn't that long ago many would have said using 2Gb of memory in a normal desktop system would be overkill, however in recent times it has definitely become more of a necessity for the hardcore gamer. Titles like Battlefield 2 benefit from the increased memory volume and general desktop use can also be improved if you are multitasking with a few demanding applications. Today we are going to take a look at a 2Gb kit from OCZ to see if moving from some older 1Gb memory can show any performance benefit and as this memory is capable of running low timings at DDR466 we also take a look at the overall improvements at those settings.
virtual-hideout.net: OCZ has once again pushed the limits of ultra-high quality memory. Their new 2x1GB PC2-8000 EL Platinum XTC is impressive to say the least. Remember now, this is running at 1000mhz at only 5-5-5-15 and 2.1v. To top that, those are the official specs directly from OCZ. How many high quality 1000mhz 2x1GB DDR2 kits are out there?
virtual-hideout.net: OCZ is a major player in the DDR/DDR2 memory market these days ranking up there with the best of the best. They continue to innovate and expand their market reach with top notch quality and unique product selections. Let's take this new PC2-7200 kit for a spin around the block!
techgage.com: OCZ has been launching some amazing kits lately, and this one is no exception. In our tests, we have managed to bring this modest DDR2-900 up to DDR2-1140 speeds and still retain some great stability.
