OCZ shows off 2133 MHz DDR3 memory

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

OCZ Technology is running a live demo of DDR3-17000 memory clocked at 2133 MHz at Computex. The memory devices are based on the company’s Flex II design, which includes a liquid cooling technology for memory modules. OCZ said that the DDR3-17000 memory is aimed at “high-end overclocked water cooled systems. “

There was no word on actual availability and pricing of these devices. However, we would expect the 2133 MHz memory to come in slightly above the $320 the Flex II PC3-16000 (2000 MHz)  kits (2 x 1 GB) are currently going for. That may sound like a lot of money, but in today’s performance memory world that actually could be considered a bargain. Corsair’s PC3-16000 Dominator modules are currently selling in the $550 range (2 x 1 GB), while Crucial’s Ballistix memory (2 x 1 GB) is cruising in the $600+ segment.
