Fremont, CA (May 27, 2005) – Corsair® Memory, Inc., a worldwide leader in high performance memory and cooling products for enthusiasts and overclockers, today is pleased to unveil XMS2-8000ULTM as its latest addition to the high performance XMS family of products. First in the industry to ship DDR2 memory modules at factory default frequency of 1GHz, Corsair once again demonstrates its leadership position in high performance products and commitment to support platform transitions.
Available immediately in both single module and dual kit packages and rated to run at aggressive latency settings of 5-4-4-9, the new XMS2-8000UL was developed in collaboration with ASUS® Computer for its latest Intel® i955X chipset based motherboard, the P5WD2 Premium. Backed with a life time warranty and a potential to be overclocked to 1066+ Mhz, Corsair’s new XMS2-8000UL complements ASUS‘ P5WD2 Premium motherboard as the ultimate choice for enthusiasts. In SiSoft Sandra memory test performed at Corsair, overclocking XMS2-8000UL memory to 1066 MHz delivers an incredible 17% memory performance improvement compared with DDR2-667. Leveraging Intel processor’s native support for multi-threaded tasks, Corsair brings new memory capability to the platform to run memory intensive applications such as 3D games concurrently with other demanding applications.
„Last month, we saw enthusiasts worldwide overclocking our ultra low latency XMS2-5400ULTM memory modules to over 1GHz. This month, we are pushing the envelope further with the introduction of the native low-latency 1GHz parts“ said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair. „Corsair’s engineers have achieved a milestone in memory development with the XMS2-8000UL. Combined with the availability of performance motherboards such as the ASUS P5WD2, we expect adoption of high performance DDR2 memory to explode,“ continued Beekley.
