Corsair “ASUS Ready” Corsair XMS 3500LL PRO 2GB Kit

Corsair® Memory, Inc., a worldwide leader in high performance memory and
cooling products for enthusiasts and overclockers, and ASUSTek®, the perennial
leader of the motherboard industry, today announced a joint product launch
targeting the AMD® enthusiasts. Under this collaboration, Corsair will release
its first “ASUS Ready” XMS-3500LL PRO 2GByte-kit to support the release of the
first “Corsair optimized” x16 SLI motherboards engineered by ASUS. Available in
a matched pair of two 1GByte modules, the new XMS-3500LL PRO is the industry’s
first high-density memory guaranteed to deliver blazing-fast performance of
DDR437 (218MHz) at low latencies of 2-3-2-6-1T.

Leaders in the memory and the motherboard industries respectively, this joint
product development enables both Corsair and ASUS to bring the best offerings to
the performance and gaming marketplace. The memory and the motherboards are
optimized for maximum performance, and are validated for rock solid stability.
Positioned as the highest end products for the AMD platform, enthusiasts benefit
from having the latest technologies backed with manufacturers’ performance
guarantee.

“The A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard was designed to set a new performance standard
for the AMD enthusiasts, and we were able to do that with Corsair’s XMS 3500LL
PRO,” said Joe Hsieh, Director of ASUS Motherboard Business. “As more users move
to 2GB of system memory and still demand a performance edge, ASUS and Corsair
are always on the forefront to deliver the most power combination of products,”
continued Hsieh.

Realizing the increasing need for greater system memory to take full advantage
of memory-intensive applications while maintaining low latencies for best
performance on the Athlon™64 platform, Corsair designed the XMS-3500LL PRO with
the latest 64MBx8 high speed chips and specially designed Brain Power PCB. The
latest real-world applications like Battlefield2 demand a lot more memory
bandwidth. Moving system memory to 2GByte provides the necessary bandwidth to
ensure ultimate gaming experience, improving performance by well over fifteen
(15) percent. In addition to the total system memory, memory latency also plays
a key role in overall performance. The new XMS-3500LL PRO SPD is programmed at
Plug and Frag™ latencies of 2-3-2-6-1T, making it the most ideal choice for the
AMD platform. Other differentiating features include the enhanced PRO heat
spreader for enhanced heat dissipation, and proprietary activity-indicating LEDs
that can aid in system troubleshoots.

First to market with motherboards that support X16 SLI™ Technology, the new ASUS
A8N32-SLI Deluxe/WiFi motherboards take full advantage of the NVIDIA® nForce™4
SLI X16 chipset and feature the proprietary AI Life™ features such as Stack Cool
2, 8-phase power design, and fanless motherboard design. Positioned to replace
the current gamers’ favourite A8N-SLI Deluxe as the ultimate solution for
enthusiasts, the new ASUS motherboards incorporates a wide range of BIOS options
for performance enhancement.

"Our lab results have shown a sizeable performance increase in games like
Battlefield 2 and applications like DVD encoding by increasing memory size to 2
gigabytes," stated John Beekley, Vice President of Applications Engineering at
Corsair Memory. "These low latency one gigabyte modules, combined with the dual
PCI Express sixteen-bit GPU slots and overclocking abilities of the A8N32-SLI
Deluxe, will provide a knockout combination for builders of performance PCs.”

The Corsair XMS-3500LL PRO (manufacturer’s part number: TWINX2048-3500LLPRO) is
immediately available through Corsair’s distributors, resellers, retailers, and
e-tailers worldwide.
