OCZ launched a very impressive series of DDR3 memory modules today which are primarily suited to the Core i7 platform with its tri-channel support.
The new Blade series is certainly some mighty fine competition for the ultra high-end market, squarely up against the likes of Corsair's yet to be announced DOMINATOR GT series.
