Memory, Inc., a worldwide leader in high performance memory and cooling products for
enthusiasts and overclockers, is proud to announce that the latest XMS2
the first true ultra low latency memory to reach the DDR2-1066 milestone.
the new XMS2 5400UL memory modules, Wesley Fink at Anandtech successfully
overclocked the memory to deliver 1:1 CPU:RAM synchronicity. The latest Glenwood
(i955X) chipset continues the official support for Intel processors with 1066
MHz Front Side Bus (FSB). Prior to the Corsair 5400UL, no other DDR2 memory was
capable of surpassing the 1GHz barrier. At the 1:1 ratio, system performance is
at its best and potential bandwidth bottlenecks removed.
"We were amazed to
find that the Corsair CM2X512A-5400UL could reach DDR2-1066. This yielded a
Sandra standard bandwidth of just over 6400 MB/sec. To put this in perspective,
this is the first motherboard and memory that we have ever tested capable of
running at DDR2-1066," said Wesley Fink at Anandtech. "The 1066 crown belongs to
Corsair," declared Fink.
"The 1:1 CPU:RAM
synchronicity achievement using the XMS2 5400UL validates Corsair's leadership
position in the enthusiast segment," said Richard Hashim, Director of Product
Management at Corsair. "This product is currently shipping, so enthusiasts will
have an immediate opportunity to duplicate the incredible performance
breakthrough shown by Wesley," continued Hashim.
