Corsair: 8GB to become the standard for dual-channel memory kits by year-end

Posted on Thursday, May 07 2009 @ 16:00:08 CEST by

Memory maker Corsair estimates that by the end of the year, 8GB will be the standard for dual-channel memory kits.
“By the end of the year, I think many or most dual channel builds will transition to 8GB,” said Mr. Paul. “Memory cost will continue to trend downwards, Windows 7 will be out there and applications programmers will produce applications and games that are designed to take advantage of 64-bit memory addressing. Even now many of our customers are populating machines with 12GB.”

At present, even Corsair Memory itself does not offer 8GB dual-channel memory kits. Just like other suppliers of advanced memory modules, Corsair concentrates on 6GB triple-channel memory module kits aimed at Intel Core i7-based systems. However, now that Advanced Micro Devices has released its AMD Phenom II processors with DDR3 memory support and Intel Corp. is gearing up to launch other Nehalem micro-architecture based chips with dual-channel memory controller, advanced dual-channel DDR3 module kits seem to have a lot of prospects.
