(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Fremont, California, February 22, 2005 – Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today began shipping a PC3200 CAS2 model of their XPERT series memory, the world’s first memory modules that measure and display critical performance parameters.


The new model is the TwinXP1024-3200C2, a matched pair of 512MByte DDR DIMMs. These modules are tested at PC3200 speeds at 2-3-3-6 latency settings on Intel platforms and at 2.5-3-3-6 latencies on AMD platforms to ensure solid performance.

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 Windows™ 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.

According to Corsair Marketing Director Joe James, “XPERT demonstrates Corsair’s leadership in memory technology and our commitment to computer enthusiasts. This product makes the XPERT feature set available at a much lower price point than ever.” Street prices on the TwinXP1024-3200C2 are expected to be under $300.

TwinXP1024-3200XL is shipping now to resellers worldwide.
