Introduction to the OCZ DDR3 PC3-17000 Reaper HPC 8GB Dual Channel Kit
There are times when 4GB is just not enough. Take the CAD users and other graphical occupations or even the individual at home that does a lot of video compression. They each need more than what the average PC comes with. Because of that we need higher density kits.
Then there are times when we need faster ram just, when DDR3 1333 or 1600 isn’t a high enough frequency to take your top end processors to that magical FSB we are looking for. That’s the reason we are seeing ram kits with speeds in excess of 2000+ megahertz.
OCZ have given us the best of both worlds with the latest addition to their enthusiast Reaper HPC line of memory kits, giving us 8GB of usable memory under a 64-bit operating system. At the same time it gives us a high enough frequency to achieve some excellent performance! How does 2133MHz sound?
Yes, we are excited to be taking a look at our first ever 2x4GB dual channel kit.
