There's a new series of memory modules off the production line from OCZ as of today, with the "Platinum XTC" tag. The first member to this new family is their PC2-6400 EL Platinum Edition XTC which sport rated timings of 4-5-4 (slightly lower than standard). The XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) branding means improved and funky looking heatspreaders implemented on these modules too.
Sunnyvale, CA-January 30, 2006-OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the highly-anticipated Platinum XTC memory series. The first inclusion to the new series will be the PC2-6400 EL Platinum Edition XTC, engineered to implement the recently introduced and highly commended OCZ XTC heatspreader design.
The Platinum XTC DDR2 series features the innovative XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) Heatspreaders. The unique design used in the XTC heatspreaders optimizes the thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreader designs. In this manner, build-up of heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of the memory components is offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same time, mechanical stability is maintained.
