In occasione del CeBit 2006 Corsair ha lanciato moduli di RAM con prestazioni da primato, per piattaforme Intel con DDR2 e AMD con DDR. Si tratta rispettivamente delle soluzioni TWIN2X1024-8500 (DDR2), che supera il limite del GHz essendo capace di operare a 1066MHz, e TWINX2048-4400PRO, memoria RAM DDR con clock di 550MHz. Segue il comunicato stampa del produttore.
Fremont, CA (March 6, 2006) Corsair Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high performance
memory, today launched the world’s fastest DDR2 and DDR1 memory solutions for the Intel and the AMD platforms.
Rated at scorching fast 1066MHz, the new TWIN2X1024-8500 from Corsair delivers the highest memory frequency
currently available to Intel users. Simultaneously, the new TWINX2048-4400PRO takes the lead with its rated 550MHz
speed to unleash maximum performance on the AMD platform. Live demonstrations of the world’s fastest memory
modules can be seen at the Corsair booth in Hall 22, Stand 16B, Booth B6-8.
Taking full advantage of the highly developed RAM sorting technology and custom RAMs from Corsair semiconductor
suppliers, the new XMS2-8500 and the XMS-4400PRO bring unrivaled memory performance to satisfy the most
discerning gamers and enthusiasts.
Last year, Corsair was the first manufacturer to break the 1GHz DDR2 memory frequency barrier and brought the world’s
first 512MB PC4400 memory to market. Looking ahead, we believe the future DDR2 speed standard for the enthusiasts
will become 1066MHz, and Corsair is offering that speed now, stated Richard Hashim, Director of Product Marketing at
Corsair Memory. As we continue to innovate on the DDR1 side, we are proud to be the first and the only manufacturer
with 1GB PC4400 high-frequency modules that truly work at their rated speed in a 2GB configuration, added Hashim.
To support the latest Intel platform as well as showcase next generation memory capabilities, Corsair new
TWIN2X1024-8500 addresses the increasing demand to run the processor and the memory controller in asynchronous
mode, thereby minimizing performance bottlenecks. To achieve this record memory speed, the Corsair engineering team
has carefully selected RAMs and individually tested each module to ensure optimal performance and rock solid stability.
The end result is the world’s first true PC8500 module with a published clock speed specification of 1066MHz.
Fueled by the increasing number of PC games and applications that benefit from more system memory, users now
demand a minimum of 2GB in their systems to achieve maximum performance. The new TWINX2048-4400PRO answers
the need with its 2GB of memory density running at blazing-fast 550MHz in dual channel mode. Taking full advantage of
the highly screened Infineon C-rev RAM, the Corsair kit features flexible dual-specification. The users have the flexibility
to run the memory module at highest frequency of PC4400 for maximum system performance or PC4000 at CL3 with 1T
command rate for highest overclocking head room. Available in the proprietary PRO package, Corsair elevates the user
experience by combining ultra-high memory performance with efficient heat sink design and activity LEDs.
