PNY Technologies Introduces Line of DDR3 Memory Modules

Parsippany, N.J. -  Following the recent introduction of its new solid state drives (SSDs), PNY Technologies Inc. has released a full lineup of DDR3 system memory modules. 
Standard PC3-8500 and PC3-10600 DDR3 samples will be available to OEMs and system builders in capacities up to 2GB, as well as limited quantities of PNY's overclocked XLR8-brand DDR3.
PNY is working with leading platform providers to ensure the DDR3 system memory supports the latest motherboard chipsets, such as the P35 and upcoming X38 from Intel. These platforms are required for the use of the latest generation dual- and quad- core processors, which require system memory that can provide increased bandwidth. 
PNY's DDR3 portfolio features fasters peeds and increased bandwidth, as well as higher densities, decreased power usage, and decreased heat output to optimally operate in the newest platforms. 
"The introduction of PNY's new system memory lineup solidifies our position to support the industry's transition to DDR3," says Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PNY Technologies. "DDR3 is an instrumental component in the overall system design that allows the next generational leap in system performance. PC enthusiasts will experience cutting-edge computing resulting from DDR3's huge bandwidth increases that are not possible with DDR2." 
PNY's SSD offering includes commercial and industrial options, as well as capacities up to 128GB for its 2.5-inch version and 64GB for its 1.8-inch drive.
PNY is currently shipping samples of its 2.5-inch SSD in both standard and high speeds up to 32GB in capacity to OEMs and system builders. End users can purchase PNY SSDs from leading e-tailers in August.
