As a new open standard, immediate adoption by motherboard manufacturers and other memory manufacturers is expected.

 

"Corsair is excited to be the first one to introduce memory modules based on EPP. We believe this feature adds overclocking convenience and performance advantages to all users," said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair Memory.
