One of the leading suppliers of advanced memory modules, OCZ Technology, announced the world’s first DDR3 products with high clock-speed and relatively low latency, which mean that the new modules may offer tangible performance increases when compared to competing DDR2 and DDR3 devices.

At 1333MHz, the OCZ PC3-10666 Platinum edition is rated to run with CL7 7-7-20 latency settings at 1.8V voltage. The new modules feature a good balance of relatively low timings and high clock-speeds. In order to achieve enhanced performance, OCZ had to increase the voltage by 20% from 1.5V nominal for DDR3, which is a quite high boost.

“We engineered our newest DDR3 edition with a focus on maximizing performance of DDR3 technology. Our new Platinum PC3-10666 achieves the low latencies required to see a performance uplift for enthusiasts upgrading their systems to DDR3,” said Ryan Petersen, chief executive of OCZ Technology.

OCZ Platinum DDR3 modules will be available in 1GB and 2GB dual-channel kits. These modules are currently available in limited quantity and OCZ has been working closely with the leading platform providers to ensure optimal performance and compatibility on all the next-generation computing platforms that will be introduced later this year, the company indicated.
