OCZ intros 'Special Ops' memory

— 10:41 AM on May 25, 2006

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.
