Corsair Expands Popular XMS PRO and XMS XPERT Product Families with new DDR2-800 Low Latency Offerings

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Fremont, CA (June 27, 2006) -Corsair(r) Memory, the worldwide leader in

design and manufacture of high performance memory, today announced the
introduction of two new DDR2-800 low latency 2GB kits. Designed with the
advanced users in mind who demand performance, aesthetics and
functionary in one package, the new TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and
TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 memory kits are optimized for the current AMD(r)
socket AM2 platform and the upcoming Intel(r) platform.

Joining the growing XMS DDR2 product line, Corsair’s
TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 are aimed at gamers and
enthusiasts who demand low latencies of 4-4-4-12 at standard 800MHz
frequency. The Corsair XMS product family now offers complete
performance-oriented DDR2 solutions ranging from the classic XMS to the
PRO and the XPERT in a variety of speeds and densities. The
TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO features activity LEDs that show the level of
memory usage, while the TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 features a proprietary
integrated micro-controller with 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 alpha-numeric display that is a part of the memory
module. Both the PRO and the XPERT kits are available in Corsair’s
signature platinum heat spreaders. Continuing Corsair’s commitment to
the highest standard of engineering performance memory, the new 6400C4’s
are built using carefully selected RAMs and are optimized for new and
upcoming platforms, and promise superior memory performance at 800MHz.

„The new XMS DDR2 PRO and XPERT modules not only operate at fast 800MHz
speeds and low latency, they feature Corsair’s highly reviewed activity
LEDs and parametric displays,“ commented Richard Hashim, Director of
Product Marketing at Corsair Memory. „Corsair will continue to develop
and offer cutting edge memory technology with features demanded by the
enthusiast community,“ continued Hashim.

Similar to other new XMS DDR2 products from Corsair, the
TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and the TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 feature Enhanced
Performance Profiles (EPP). EPP elevates memory performance by taking
full advantage of the additional memory parameters that are now added to
the unused portion of the JEDEC standard Serial Presence Detect (SPD).
EPP brings simplified overclocking success for entry level enthusiasts,
and access to more advanced memory specifications and a higher recovery
point for hard-core overclockers. To take full advantage of EPP,
motherboards designed with a special BIOS can recognize the presence of
EPP settings. Once these settings are enabled, the system boots directly
into the memory’s specified settings and takes immediate advantage of
the increased performance.
