OCZ announces EPP adoption in upcoming memory
Not far behind Corsair, which co-developed the Enhanced Performance Profile (EPP)
specification with NVIDIA, OCZ has said it will adopt EPP in an upcoming line of "SLI-Ready"
memory modules. EPP will enable the future OCZ sticks to change their
timings, voltage, and other settings in order to accommodate overclocked
systems more easily—at least in conjunction with NVIDIA nForce 590
SLI-based motherboards, the only boards on the market to support the
spec at this point.
Aside from recording mutual praise between NVIDIA and OCZ for
their respective and upcoming work with EPP, the OCZ press release
doesn't mention much about the upcoming memory modules. All it says is
that OCZ will "announce the EPP-based DDR2 memory part numbers in the
coming weeks." Nonetheless, this move by OCZ could lead to wider adoption of EPP by other memory manufacturers, now that a second memory brand is onboard.
