Corsair 1066MHz vs OCZ 1.1GHz memory

X-bit Labs compared the fastest RAM modules from OCZ and Corsair:
It was at the end of the last summer that Corsair and OCZ, the two leaders of the memory market, announced their new and faster-than-before modules that lifted the frequency bar from 1066MHz to 1100MHz. So, PC2-8000 and PC2-8600 modules were followed by PC2-8800. Their speed isn’t far better than that of the earlier products, but even this small performance growth should be regarded with interest considering the lack of a new raw material for fast memory (we mean DDR2 SDRAM chips that would have better overclockability than today). So, this review is all about the new products from Corsair and OCZ as they provoke just enough of questions to be discussed in a single article. Before talking about each of them individually, we’d like to single out the general principle behind the ultra-fast PC2-8800 DDR2 SDRAM.
