OCZ 6GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Kit
System memory is one of the most over-looked hardware components in computer systems. When it comes to 32-bit Operating Systems like Windows XP and Vista, only 4GB of memory can be mapped and utilized. However with 64-bit version of the Windows Operating System becoming gaining popularity, only the physical limitations of the motherboard can restrict the user-mode virtual address space. So with applications demanding greater memory overhead, once again it has better to use as memory as can be installed into the system.
But not all memory is made the same; and even memory of the same speed can have different consumer targets. OCZ offers something for everyone, and there isn't a desktop computer made that they don't offer an upgrade for. Casual users can take advantage of their warranty and support, as well as getting tips from their support forum for better performance. Enthusiasts and overclockers can match the memory kit that best suits their needs. Even gamers are given special attention, even though system memory has very little impact on a games performance.
In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the performance of an entry-level triple-channel product for the Intel Core i7 platform. The OCZ 6GB 1333 MHz DDR3 memory kit OCZ3P1333LV6GK will be compared against several other products and benchmarked for bandwidth and gaming performance. Are the higher speeds worth the money, or can this memory kit overclock to their level? Press on to find out.
About the company: OCZ Technology
Entering the memory market in August 2000, OCZ Technology was built around the determination to manufacture the best high speed DDR and RDRAM. OCZ was founded by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts, and their commitment to the end-user has not digressed. OCZ Technology has been an innovator in many areas.
We were the first manufacturer to make Dual Channel optimized memory available to the public, which originally took advantage of nVidia's Twinbank or Dual DDR architecture, found in their nForce chipset. We have now taken that technology and tailored it for the Canterwood, and Granite Bay chipset's. OCZ developed and was the first to implement ULN technology, which has been a critical element in the manufacturing process for some time.
We at OCZ diligently work to improve communication with CPU and motherboard chipset manufacturers prior to the release of their products. Only in this manner can we fine-tune the memory's SPD settings, ensuring a synergistic relationship between the memory module, memory controller, and microprocessor. In today's rapidly evolving semiconductor industry, such communication is not simply research, but a necessary component of the manufacturing process.
