OCZ announced memory modules functioning at 500MHz for price-conscious customers. Earlier this month OCZ released DDR500 (aka PC4000) memory sticks for power-users who are not in budget and now decided to launch a bit less advanced product for value-minded customers.

OCZ PC4000 EL DDR memory will be available in 256MB and 512MB modules, as well as in 512MB and 1GB matched kits. Each OCZ PC4000 EL DDR module features a copper heat-spreader and is rated for CL 3-4-4-8 operation at 2.7V, even though they state 2.8V on OCZ’s web-site here.

As you see, in order to maintain relative affordability of the products OCZ increased memory timings on OCZ PC4000 EL DDR devices to CL3-4-4-8 from CL2.5-4-4-7 featured by the recently unveiled OCZ Gold Edition PC4000. Enhanced timings should not dramatically affect performance on current i865PE and i875P dual-channel platforms for Intel Pentium 4 CPUs, but still should allow the company to offer a competitive price for its products.

This is the third high-speed inexpensive memory device from OCZ Technology Group launched in the course of the last couple of month. I believe that such products have very good market acceptance and we should expect more makers of advanced memory sticks to launch modules of the same kind soon.

OCZ PC4000 EL DDR memory devices are made using special ULN PCBs and covered with life-time warranty. OCZ will start to ship the modules on the 21st of July.
