Even though the original only started shipping in late January, gaming peripheral company Razer unveiled the successor to its Blade gaming laptop at PAX Prime on Friday. The good news is that despite boasting better innards, the Blade 2 will cost $300 less than its predecessor.
Sure, OCZ is all about SSDs these days, but the company hasn't forgotten its roots as a memory maker. To prove it, OCZ on Tuesday unveiled a handful of new kits, including the Blade 2 Series, Platinum XTE (Xtreme Thermal Exchange) Series, and Gold XTE Series.
"Building on our previous lines of enthusiast overclocking memory, the new XTE and Blade 2 DDR3 memory series are designed to set the benchmark once again and deliver the ultimate in performance and stability," said Alex Mei, CMO of OCZ Technology Group. "Featuring new compact, yet highly efficient heatspreader designs, these hand-tested kits are the ideal solution for overclockers, gaming, and productivity applications, and are optimized for th latest generation of platforms from Intel and AMD."
The Blade 2 kits come rated for 2133MHz or 2400MHz in both dual- and triple-channel configurations, while the Platinum XTE and Gold XTE range in frequency from 1600MHz to 2133MHz..
