So what can we expect from OCZ in the near future?

Recently we have seen a movement from OCZ as primarily a memory producer, to manufacturing more enthusiast orientated hardware such as:

* FlexXLC – The worlds fastest memory with the ability to run on both air and water cooling;
* ProXStream – The worlds smallest 1000W ATX PSU;
* Silver Array – Innovative CPU Waterblock with direct contact silver rod array.

So what can we expect from OCZ Technology in the future? Well here is the clincher…OCZ will be releasing video cards to the market, beginning with the Nvidia 8800 series! But, not only are OCZ going to be releasing video cards; OCZ has told OC3D that the graphics cards will feature cherry picked components making them most possibly the most overclockable cards on the market.

Further, OCZ is working closely with Industry leaders interested in promoting high performance gaming and overclocking as a total solution. Essentially manufacturers working together to deliver a superior overclocking experience to even novice overclocking consumers with special overclocking friendly features, cross validation, and platform specific parts. We can expect :

* OCZ is working closely with Shuttle on an Enthusiast XPC – with more overclocking bios friendly features and enthusiast appeal in a SFF with advanced thermal consideration;
* OCZ + Shuttle + ASUS – OCZ are co-working together on a total high performance gaming solution which utilizes an ASUS motherboard, (multiple 8800 capable) system with compact footprint. OCZ is also working closely with ASUS on special customized memory (Superior Performance & Stability).
