Corsair shows off DDR3 at CeBIT

The British lads from the Inq report Corsair has showed off some DDR3 memory at CeBIT this week:
First up we have DDR3/1066 running on a P35 chipset. It has CAS-6 timings which is a little better than the standard JEDEC CAS-7 spec. You could almost call it low latency.

There are 800 and 1066 flavours here, and 1333 running in the labs. Corsair will not launch until there are chipsets that use the RAM, but when that happens in a few months, it expects to also have DDR3/1600 available.

Pricing is not set yet, but as is usual with any new product, look for an initial price premium and watch it fade as availability goes up. Classic supply and demand.
Corsair also has new XMS DHX memory coming up and new Survivor memory flash sticks that should be much harder to break than normal sticks.
