OCZ intros 'Special Ops' memory
All the talk has been about NVIDIA and Corsair's Enhanced Performance
Profiles in the memory market this week, but after announcing its future adoption of the standard, OCZ has
decided to one-up the two companies with a new invention of its own:
camouflaged memory. OCZ's new Special Ops
Edition memory modules not only offer heat spreaders with a "unique
camouflage motif," but are also claimed to enable "the ultimate memory
upgrade for the latest graphic-intensive PC games."
At least, that's what the press release says. The Special Ops sticks are rated for
rather average PC3200, PC2-5400, and PC2-6400 speeds and equally
pedestrian 2.5-3-3-8, 4-4-4-12, and 5-5-5-12 timings, respectively. In
fact, the modules appear to sport the same heat spreader design and
slightly higher overall timings than OCZ's existing Gamer eXtreme
Enhanced Latency line, just with the added camo motif, so they can remain
completely hidden in a jungle environment—or under the thick
canopy of cables inside the average gaming PC.
