Thanks to increased performance of Advanced Micro Devices’ Phenom II central processing units and increased popularity of AMD’s chips among performance-minded customers, the importance of launching of high-end AMD components is increasing. OCZ Technology Group, a leading supplier of advanced computer components, this week launched its first DDR3 memory kits designed for AMD Phenom II and future chips.

“AMD’s new AM3 architecture is designed specifically for the gaming community, with emphasis on high data transfer rates between the system memory and the graphics subsystem. The key improvement over the AM2 platform is the embracing of DDR3 technology where OCZ has a track record of being a market leader,” said said Michael Schuette, vice president of technology development at OCZ.

OCZ’s new Gold and Platinum “AMD Edition” memory module kits can operate at 1333MHz or 1600MHz with 1.65V voltage. The memory modules will hardly enable high overclocking potential, unlike OCZ’s earlier released premium-class kits aimed at Intel Core i7 platforms, however, they will enable cost-efficient upgrade path for users looking forward AMD AM3 platforms that support only DDR3 memory. In addition, the new modules do not come with significantly boosted power supply voltage, which may positively affect their lifespan.

“These new AMD kits further establish our leading role in this category and show our commitment to both industry partners and the gaming community by complementing AMD’s gaming platform with future-oriented, low voltage memory technology,” said Mr. Schuette.

Technical specifications of the newly released memory modules are as follows:

  • OCZ PC3-10666 (1333MHz) Gold AMD Edition Low Voltage (2x2GB) CL9 9-9-20 @ 1.65v
  • OCZ PC3-10666 (1333MHz) Platinum Low Voltage AMD Edition (2x2GB) CL7 7-7-20 @ 1.65v
  • OCZ PC3-12800 (1600MHz) Gold AMD Edition Low Voltage (2x2GB) CL8 8-8-24 @ 1.65v
  • OCZ PC3-12800 (1600MHz) Platinum AMD Edition Low Voltage (2x2GB) CL7 7-7-24 @ 1.65v
