Corsair boosting DDR memory to PC4400 (DDR550)!

Is PC4200 (DDR533) memory still too slow for you? For most people this will be more than enough I think, so it is very questionable if there really is a need for faster memory at the moment. Anyway real die hard overclockers will be happy to hear that Corsair launched a few new PC4400 memory sticks today. These memory sticks are able to run at an amazing speed of 550MHz DDR and are all tested with the Asus P4C800E Canterwood motherboards.
Every XMS module built must pass a stringent battery of tests at its rated speed before being shipped. XMS4400 modules are tested at 550MHz with 3-4-4-8 latency settings at 2.75V. All XMS4400 modules are tested in an Asus P4C800-E dual channel DDR motherboard based on the Intel 875P "Canterwood" chipset. TwinX kits are tested as a matched pair and physically packaged together immediately after passing test, guaranteeing that the customer receives a product that has been verified in the dual channel environment.
Corsair released four PC4400 products: 1GB TwinX modules with either black or platinum heatspreader, and 512MB XMS modules with either black or platinum heatspreader.
Details about pricing and availability are unknown but it sure won't be cheap.
