Corsair and OCZ - high performance memory compared

The guys from X-bit Labs compared two high-performance Corsair memory modules with a memory module from OCZ.
Even if you are not really following the news from the memory market on a regular basis, you may have definitely noticed that the working frequencies of the DDR2 memory modules have actually grown pretty modestly over the past year. In the end of last summer we tested DDR2-1100 memory modules from Corsair and OCZ (for details see our article called DDR2 SDRAM to Hit 1.1GHz: Corsair Dominator vs. OCZ PC2-8800 Gold Edition). After the launch of these memory modules the manufacturers of DDR2 memory for computer enthusiasts couldn’t really offer anything principally new for quite some time. It is only recently that we started witnessing some minor movement towards higher memory speeds: Corsair Company managed to shift the top speed limit to 1250MHz, and OCZ Technologies – to 1200MHz. These relatively small increases from the overclocker memory makers are not incidental. There are two reasons for that... Check it out over here.
