Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, Corsair ha reso noto che i moduli di memoria RAM DDR3 ad altissime prestazioni Dominator GTX1 (CMGTX1) hanno ricevuto la certificazione XMP-Ready da Intel in corrispondenza della frequenza operativa pari a 2333Hz, divenendo così i moduli di RAM più veloci al mondo, avendo superato un altro prodotto, della stessa Corsair, che è XMP-Ready a 2000MHz.
Il maker fa sapere che gli ingegneri di Intel hanno testato i moduli CMGTX1 impostando un profilo di timing pari a 9-11-9-27 in corrispondenza di una tensione di alimentazione di 1.65V e che la motherboard utilizzata è stata una Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P.
Corsair aggunge che ogni modulo XMP-Ready viene esaminato accuratamente a mano e testato su differenti piattaforme prima della commercializzazione. Si tratta comunque di prodotti a disponibilità limitata, capaci, in accordo al maker, di operare stabilmente anche a 2400MHz.

Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced that the Dominator GTX1 ultra-high performance DDR3 memory module (CMGTX1) has passed Intel's XMP-Ready certification at the blistering speed of 2333MHz, surpassing Corsair's 2000MHz modules as the fastest XMP-certified memory in the world.
Corsair Dominator GTX modules are individually hand-screened and tested to ensure unmatched performance. They are designed specifically for enthusiasts and overclockers who want to achieve the highest performance possible, and to break benchmark world records.
Intel's engineers awarded the XMP-Ready certification to 2 x 2GB Corsair CMGTX1 modules running at the incredible frequency of 2333MHz using low timings of 9-11-9-27 at a voltage of just 1.65V. The test platform was a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard. The successful XMP certification is a testament to the performance capabilities as well as the stability of both the memory and the target platform.
"Building the fastest memory for extreme overclockers and enthusiasts requires considerable engineering expertise, combined with a unique understanding of the complexities of overclocking," said Kevin Conley, VP of Engineering at Corsair. "Intel is one of the most meticulous and sophisticated technology companies in the world, and so achieving XMP-Ready certification at the astonishing frequency of 2333MHz once again clearly demonstrates Corsair's performance leadership."
Corsair Dominator GTX1 modules are individually screened and tested on multiple high-performance Intel P55 chipset platforms. In addition to the XMP-Ready certification at a frequency of 2333MHz, they are guaranteed by Corsair to operate at up to 2400MHz at timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V.
Corsair Dominator GTX modules are available exclusively from Corsair's Online Store. They utilize Corsair's patented DHX+ heatsink and are supplied with extra-tall cooling fins to maximize heat dissipation. They are sold as a single module, allowing enthusiasts to simply buy the number of modules they require. Corsair recommends using the GT Airflow fan with tall mounting brackets, also available from the Corsair Online Store (part number CMXAF2 GTL).
As Corsair Dominator GTX1 modules are screened by hand, in multiple passes, at Corsair's lab in Fremont, California, availability is extremely limited and is on a first come, first served basis only.
