Intel Extreme Memory Profiles

 

OCZ is the first to announce Intel Extreme Memory modules, or the new memory that is optimized and predefined for Intel's X38 chipset. We wrote about the XMP during the Games Convention in Leipzig and you can read it here.

The Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) is a set of SPD (Serial Presence Detect) settings that acts in the same way as the praised Nvidia's EPP, as an integrated "plug and play" overclocking tool.

The modules come configured to Intel's defined specifications and the first XMP-Ready will be available as OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 1GB (1024MB) modules or a 2GB kit. The new XMP 1600 MHz DDR3 memory comes with three XMP profiles. The first one is called XMP Profile 0 and it features 1333MHz with 7-7-7 latencies. Second one, as you may have guessed is XMP Profile 1 and it features 1600MHz with 8-8-8 latencies. The third one is qualified by OCZ for the extreme enthusiast, and it will feature 1600MHz with tight 7-6-6 latencies.

The new modules work at 1.8 Volts and have a 1.95V EVP (Extended Voltage Protection). They are cooled by Titanium Z3 XTC Heatspreaders which gives them that fancy look. As the entire line of OCZ's premium modules these are also backed up with OCZ's Lifetime Warranty.
