2133MHz DDR3 from Team Group at Computex

Team Group is showcasing DDR3 memory modules at Computex that can run at 2133MHz with 2.1V or more. Hexus says these memory chips have latencies of 10-10-10-30.
Trouble is, ultra-high-speed DDR3 is still prohibitively expensive, and this 2GiB kit will only hit its rated speed on an NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI motherboard, although no mention is made of EPP 2.0 profiles.

Corsair recently announced that it was launching a 4GiB kit of DDR3-2,000-rated memory, and we'd opt for capacity over a little extra speed, especially when the chipset is limited to just two modules at these sky-high frequencies.

Pointless? No. But DDR3 really does need to drop in price, significantly, before it displaces DDR2 as the system memory of choice.
