OCZ announced today that they have a DDR3 RAM kit ready specifically catering to the needs of the Intel X38 chipset. The new RAM uses Intel Extreme Memory Profiles and an exclusive set of Serial Presence Detect settings, which overclocks the RAM automatically.
"It is truly a milestone in personal computing to see Intel support overclocking," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "The new Extreme Memory Profile options on the new OCZ DDR3 modules allow the end user to select extreme or ultimate performance through a framework of predefined and validated optimizations of individual settings without the hassle of manually adjusting each single parameter. Moreover, the predefined settings also adjust parameters that are not accessible to the user in most CMOS setup utilities. What this means for consumers is easy overclocking on Intel platforms right out of the box."
With the memory configured to Intel specifications, OCZ says that their OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 1GB modules are the first XMP-ready memory modules available. The RAM is configured to run at 8-8-8 latencies and has a second profile with 7-6-6 latencies for demanding users. There is no ward at this time on pricing or availability of the modules.
