OCZ Technology, a leading producer of high-performance DRAM-based products, on Thursday unveiled the world’s first set of 2GHz memory modules that can work at rather unprecedented 2GHz clock-speed. Unfortunately, the modules do not operate at a little higher frequency of 2100MHz unveiled at CeBIT 2008 earlier this year.
OCZ’s DDR3 PC3-16000 Flex II Edition memory modules operate at 2.0GHz with CL8 8-8-28 latency settings amid 1.95V voltage settings. The memory module kit comes with liquid cooling-based heat spreaders and required a water-pump besides allowing further overclocking with extremely efficient cooling.
“A data rate of 2GHz was unthinkable only a year ago. Power consumption and heat generation directly follow the operating frequency; therefore, the thermal dissipation of these modules exceeds any specifications of the original design and requires the most advanced thermal solution that will reliably work under any conditions. Whether in a water-cooling environment or else under air-cooling conditions, the legacy of the Flex-series continues with the Flex II design as the most advanced memory cooling solution for the fastest modules out there,” said Dr. Michael Schuette, vice president of technology development at OCZ Technology.
It is unclear how much does OCZ Flex II PC3-16000 2GB kit cost.
