Performance high capacity memory kits

OCZ 'P45 Specials'OCZ announced their new 'P45 Special' 4GB modules, the module density is optimised specifically for the latest Intel chipset. They are available in 8GB dual channel kits or a special 16GB quad kit. Dr. Micheal Schuette, Vice President of Tech Development at OCZ, said the following regarding the new modules:

“64-bit operating systems are becoming more mainstream and finally enable user memory to shed the 2GB limitation of 32-bit OS,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Moreover, the latest multi-core systems are capable of simultaneous execution of highly complex workloads, each commanding its own virtual memory space. In that scenario, the only way of avoiding data collision without writing back to the hard disk is the migration towards super-high memory densities.”

The kits are being aimed at graphic designers, CAD engineers, and music and video editing professionals, who would reap the benefits from the large amount of RAM offered.
