With all the excitement surrounding CES 2011 and new releases such as Intel's second generation Core chips like the i5-2500K
that Shawn just reviewed, it can be easy to overlook updated revisions of existing products. For example, towards the end of November, OCZ announced revamped editions of their popular Blade, Platinum and Gold series memory. However between the holidays and upcoming CES this news may have slipped under the radar. Plus it's only been more recently that these versions have even started to show up at online retailers.
Today we have for review OCZ's new XTE or eXtreme Thermal Exchange Platinum memory in a 2x2GB PC3-16000 CL9 dual channel kit. The XTE replaces their XTC or eXtreme Thermal Convection series of memory which utilized a mesh style of heatspreader. In addition to the DDR3-2000 speed of this kit, the Platinum XTE is also offered in DDR3-1600 and DDR3-2133 versions of both dual and triple channel, with a variety of different CAS timings available as low as CL6.
Join us as we take a closer look at the OCZ Platinum XTE PC3-16000 CL9 memory.
