Interview with John Beekley of Corsair Memory

Posted on Tuesday, January 17 2006 @ 3:22 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
For the first interview of the month LR brings you one of co-founders of Corsair Memory -- John Beekley. They have known John for nearly five years now and recently interviewed him to get his perspectives on Corsair and the memory industry in general. John Speaks about everything from Corsair's updated website to FB-DIMM's and DDR3 memory!

"LR: Let's talk about the future of computer memory in 2006. It looks like we are going to see DDR3 and FB-DIMM's enter into the market space this year. Which should enthusiasts be more interested in?

John: I think that 2006 will be all about DDR2, actually. FBDIMM is a server technology, and will have no impact on the enthusiast in the one-to-two year future. And DDR3 in volume is a long way off, except in graphic applications. The most interesting memory-related events in 2006 for the enthusiast will be [1] the launch of DDR2 Athlons, and the impact on AMD's current reign as performance champion, and [2] the launch of more games and operating system revisions that require 2 GBytes of memory for optimal performance..."
