OCZ: PC2-5400 Titanium AM2 Special Edition Posted on 10/05/2007 at 22:47 by Nicolas
OCZ has unveiled a new set of DDR2-667 memory modules of 4 GB, the OCZ DDR2 PC2-5400 AM2 Special 4GB Dual Channel. If the frequency and the specifications usually communicated aren't outstanding (latencies of 5-5-5-15 and 1.8-2.0 Volts), this memory singles out because of its unique conception that makes it only compatible with AMD's AM2 platforms. Indeed, it is based on 11-bit column address chips instead of 10 usually. In consequence, the memory can work with page size of 16 Kbit instead of 8 Kbit.
According to OCZ, changes of segments would take place less frequently and it would improve performances compared to memory modules with similar characteristics. The manufacturer hasn't given more information to corroborate this announcement, but we fear that the increase in performances might compensate the fact that this is only DDR2-667 memory even though the Athlon 64 X2 AM2 can support the DDR2-800. The price of this memory isn't yet communicated.
