OCZ Technology Group, a leading supplier of high-performance memory modules, has announced the world’s fastest memory modules up to date that operate at 1100MHz clock-speed. The company positions the new products for performance-hungry computer enthusiasts as well as gamers.

OCZ PC2-8800 Gold Edition modules are rated to run at 1100MHz with CL5 6-6-15 latency settings and will be available in dual-channel 2GB (2x1024) kits. While numerous makers of memory modules have already conquered 1066MHz speed-bin for their products, few can produce 1GB modules at such high-speeds, a fact that makes 1100MHz memory “sticks” from OCZ pretty remarkable.

OCZ Technology showcased 1100MHz memory modules at CeBIT 2006, but it took the company nearly half of a year to ramp up their mass production. In order to achieve stability, the firm had to pump up the voltage from initially expected 2.1V to 2.2V, up from DDR2’s default 1.8V voltage setting. The company uses its XTC-branded cooling systems and EVP technology that allows to increase voltages to up to 2.4V on the OCZ PC2-8800 Gold Edition modules.

“DDR2 speed grades evolve faster than anybody would have thought to be possible. and we are proud that OCZ has played a major role in this push for new performance superlatives. The result of our constant effort to fine-tune components and maximize their performance, once again pays off in our release of the world’s first 1100 MHz DDR2 system memory modules,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, vice president of technology development at OCZ Technology Group.

Earlier this year Mr. Schuette indicated that the absolute maximum for the DDR2 memory under normal conditions would be a speed-bin of around 1200MHz.

Pricing of memory modules usually varies in different regions and stores.
