Review by Paul Machado on March 25, 2002

Product Supplied By: OCZ Tech
Retail Price: $99 USD

Introduction:

 On March 21, 2002 OCZ Technology announced the availability of OCZ Performance Series DDR 400 or better know as PC3200. OCZ Technology is no stranger in manufacturing high end, performance enhanced products. Founded in August 2000 they have been providing performance enhanced video cards, ram, cases, heatsinks and much more. With their latest release of PC3200 ram they have once again proven that they are dedicated to providing the latest and fastest computer related hardware. Now this ram can be called PC3200 but does it meet its name. That is what will be discovered in this review.



Features:

▫ First generation of PC3200 memory
▫ Copper Heat Spreader
▫ Available In Up To 512Meg Modules
▫ 400MHz (200Mhz fsb) and more
▫ ULN Technology: (U)ltra (L)ow (N)oise sheilded PCB
▫ Lifetime Warranty

According to OCZ Technology the chips used on this ram are Samsung 0.13micron 6ns and have been tested to run at 400MHz and more.

As you will see in the above chart ram with an access time or 6n is rate as PC2700 and not PC3200. These chips though have been handpicked by Samsung and are supposed to be capable or 400MHz system bus and more. Well lets see if this is true.
