Corsair unveiled the world’s first DDR2-800 2GB kit rated at true low latency of CL3. The latest addition to the award-winning XMS family of products, TWIN2X2048-6400C3 delivers unparalleled memory performance at 800MHz and supports the industry’s lowest latencies of 3-4-3-9 in this speed grade. Featuring Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP), a new open memory standard jointly development by Corsair and NVIDIA, the users can take advantage of the added memory performance characteristics and capabilities when used with an EPP-capable motherboard.
Using an extensive RAM screening process developed by Corsair, the new TWIN2X2048-6400C3 offers superior performance and rock solid stability at 800MHz at CL3. Optimized for the latest generation of processors and memory controllers, TWIN2X2048-6400C3 is a flexible memory solution that delivers outstanding performance at both low latency and high frequency. Designed with the ultra-enthusiasts in mind, the TWIN2X2048-6400C3 offers ample overclocking headroom, making it the ideal solution for anyone looking to build the most powerful DDR2 based systems.
Similar to other new XMS DDR2 products from Corsair, the TWIN2X2048-6400C3 features Enhanced Performance Profiles. These profiles elevate memory performance by taking full advantage of the additional memory parameters that are now added to the unused portion of the JEDEC standard Serial Presence Detect (SPD). EPP brings simplified overclocking success for entry level enthusiasts, and access to more advanced memory specifications and a higher recovery point for hard-core overclockers. To take full advantage of the Enhanced Performance Profiles, motherboards designed with a special BIOS can recognize the presence of EPP settings. Once these settings are enabled, the system boots directly into the memory’s specified settings and takes immediate advantage of the increased performance.
The TWIN2X2048-6400C3 is available immediately in 2GB kits through Corsair’s authorized distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers.
