Fremont, CA, October 20, 2004: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in
ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today
announced their fastest ever DDR memory module, a DDR550 module that supports
very aggressive 2.5-4-4-8 latencies. These modules typically support 2-2-2-5
latencies at 400MHz clock speeds. The new parts are:
TwinX1024-4400C25 matched pair of 512MB, DDR550, 2.5-4-4-8, black XMS
TwinX1024-4400C25PT matched pair of 512MB, DDR550, 2.5-4-4-8, platinum XMS
Both these parts are available immediately from resellers worldwide, and are also
available as individual 512MB modules. TwinX kits are tested as a matched pair at their rated specifications and packaged
together immediately after
passing test, guaranteeing that the customer receives a product that has been verified in the dual channel
environment. These modules include Corsair's classic black or platinum aluminum
heat spreaders for improved heat dissipation.
The ultra high clock speeds supported by these modules make them an ideal
choice for extreme overclockers seeking the
ultimate in performance. According to Corsair VP of Applications Engineering John
Beekley, "we've tested these modules in our labs on a number of 875P, 865PE and
939-pin Athlon T 64 FX based motherboards with extremely impressive results.
This is the first time we've been able to run memory at 550 MHz on both Intel
and AMD platforms. and at CAS 2.5!" Corsair R&D engineers have validated
these modules on both Intel and AMD based platforms, but Corsair's production
test lines for these parts employ the Asus P4C800-E motherboard. "Moreover,
we've driven our manufacturing cost down dramatically on this module compared to
our earlier XMS4400 product, which will translate into surprisingly affordable
street prices", Mr. Beekley added.
Detailed specifications on this product will be posted to Corsair's web site
soon at www.corsairmemory.com/corsair/xms.html.
These modules can be purchased through Corsair's authorized
sales channels listed atwww.corsairmemory.com/corsair/buy.html.
