The notebook market seems to be taking some cues from enthusiast PCs as of late. At Computex, we saw a high-end notebook from MSI that featured an automatic overclocking button. Now, OCZ Technology has introduced a high-speed, high-density DDR2 memory module it says is aimed specifically at enthusiast laptops.
The module packs 2GB onto a SO-DIMM and is rated for operation at 800MHz with timings of 5-5-5-15 at 1.8V. OCZ plans to offer the module either on its own or as part of a 4GB kit, although the company doesn't quote a retail price for either offering. However, considering OCZ's existing 2GB DDR2-667 SO-DIMM for notebooks costs $119.99 on Newegg, we'd expect the DDR2-800 module to sit somewhere in the $120-150 range.
