It was a disappointing day for enthusiasts when OCZ announced it was ditching the DRAM market to focus on SSDs, but on the bright side, it's not as if the RAM market is dead. Those who choose to stick it out will continue to release new kits, including Exceleram, which just launched its new Rippler Memory line intended for Sandy Bridge platforms. Here's an overview of the new line:
4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1333, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V
8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1333, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V
4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1600, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V
8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V
8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1333, 7-10-10-24, 1.5V
Exceleram's sales director, Martim Reis Silva, says each kit is "tested by hand on different mainboards in Germany." The new kits are available now, though they're a bit hard to find in the U.S.
