OCZ Technology Group, a leading supplier of advanced memory products, showcased its “lighting fast” memory modules designed for Intel Core i7 systems at Computex Taipei 2009 trade-show. To date, OCZ’s new Blade memory modules are the highest-performance commercially-available memory devices with 2133MHz clock-speed.

OCZ PC3-17000 Blade-series memory operate at 2.13GHz with rather tight CL8 9-8 timings in triple-channel mode with Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 975 central processing unit. The speeds for DDR3 memory beyond 2GHz are not exactly new for the industry. Back at CeBIT 2008 trade-show, over a year ago, OCZ Technology already demonstrated liquid-cooled Flex EX-series memory modules that could function at 2.10GHz, however, such products have never emerged on the market.

OCZ Blade is the company’s latest family of triple-channel memory modules designed for Intel Core i7-based systems. The Blade heat-spreader aims to enhance heat dissipation to improve the longevity and stability of the modules while keeping a sleek, low profile. The new propriety design has numerous channels that increase the surface area to more efficiently offload heat away from the memory chips and PCB.

It is unknown when exactly OCZ PC3-17000 Blade hits the market, but it is likely that already this summer. Pricing of high-end memory modules is unlikely to be low, however, considering the fact that 2.0GHz DDR3 modules are widely available, it may be expected that the price tag on the 2.13GHz DDR3 will not be considerably more expensive.

I don't think so. This will be the sort of RAM that's about twice the price of the kit below it (or the one below that). It's the same as the current kit prices, 1600MHz ram is about half the price (if not more than half) of the 2000MHz kits. This is at least true for Australia.

I'll stick to 'slow' 1600MHz kit, it's exactly the right price in terms of "bang for buck". Cheap is still nicer though ;-).
