Corsair 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.
Taking full advantage of the highly developed RAM sorting technology and custom RAMs from Corsair’s semiconductor suppliers, the new XMS2-8500 and the XMS-4400PRO bring unrivaled memory performance to satisfy the most discerning gamers and enthusiasts.
To support the latest Intel platform as well as showcase next generation memory capabilities, Corsair’s 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.
The XMS2-8500 is available in 1GB kits, and the XMS-4400PRO is available in 2GB kits.
