OCZ announces 1600 MHz DDR3 enthusiast memory

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

OCZ has added “enhanced bandwidth” performance memory to its product lineup, which, according to the company, “increases effective memory bandwidth through the optimization of memory latencies between the system memory, the chipset, and memory controller.”

Compared to the regular DDR3-12800 (1600 MHz) modules, the “EB” versions feature 7-6-6-20 timings (on Asus motherboards) instead of 7-7-7-20. Pricing has not been announced, but should come in slightly above the range of current DDR3 enthusiast memory which current retails for about $200-$250 per GB, depending on clock speed.
