We wrote about this 4GB kit back then when retail/e-tailers had leaked its specs and price. And now the time has come for the official announcement. And here it is, OCZ has officially released the new PC2-8000 4GB Platinum Edition memory kit.
The specs of this new kit are the same ones that we wrote about before, 1000MHz at CL 5-5-5-18. The new Platinum kit is available as a 2GB module or a 4GB dual channel kit. The new modules are cooled by OCZ's platinum mirrored XTC heatspreaders and the operating voltage is 2.1 Volts, with EVP (extended voltage protection) of up to 2.15 Volts.
We wrote back then that the new kit is also a decent overclocker, and that it can easily reach 1100MHz. You can find the retail/e-tailers that we wrote about here. Back then, this kit was selling for about €100 which is a great price for a 1000MHz 4GB kit. According to the press release, the suggested price is $159.99 USD. They are also backed by OCZ's lifetime warranty.
