Corsair yesterday launched a new PC3200 CAS2 memory stick in their XPERT memory series. The new model is the TwinXP1024-3200C2 - a matched pair of two 512MB sticks - with 2.5-3-3-6 latencies.

This 1GByte matched module pair includes the full XPERT feature set. XPERT technology uses an integrated microcontroller and embedded sensors to measure voltage, temperature, and frequency on the memory module. Each of these parameters, along with a user-programmable scrolling marquee can be shown on a big alphanumeric display that is part of the memory module. Corsair XPERT modules also have two rows of memory activity LED's that show real-time memory activity, similar to the popular Corsair PRO series.

The display of parametric data and scrolling messages can be controlled from the WindowsT desktop using Memory Dashboard, a stand-alone application that provides the software component of this technology. Using Memory Dashboard, the user can control which parameters are displayed, for what duration, and in what order. It also allows the user to program scrolling message strings up to 69 characters long. Corsair includes Memory Dashboard on a CD with every XPERT memory kit, and software updates can be downloaded from the Corsair website.

The TwinXP1024-3200C2 memory will be available for under $300.
