Corsair today announced new XMS2 5300 speed modules at low latencies. These memory modules offer the incredibly fast speeds of DDR2 5300 and the low latencies of 4-4-4-12 with the added benefits of the Pro Series heat spreader and memory activity LEDs.
These modules are available in a pair of 512MB modules. These products are based on the new DDR2 technology which increases the memory bandwidth available for memory intensive applications.
DDR2, the second generation of Double Data Rate memory technology, includes new features such as a larger 4-bit prefetch and programmable on-die termination (ODT) to reduce signal bounce and improve reliability at high speeds. This new specification also utilizes 240 pins.
