TwinX2048RE-3200 has passed Corsairs demanding qualification process, which
includes extensive compatibility testing with a variety of Athlon 64 FX
motherboards. In manufacturing, every matched pair of modules is tested in a
motherboard at its rated speed and at its rated latency values. TwinX kits are
tested as a matched pair and physically packaged together immediately after
passing test, guaranteeing that the customer receives a product that has been
verified in the dual channel environment.

According to John Crank, Athlon 64 FX Product Manager at AMD, This new Corsair
memory kit gives enthusiasts more to be enthusiastic about greater memory
expandability. Corsair has a proven track record of delivering exactly what the
enthusiast community needs, and this product is no exception. The combo of
Corsair memory and the Athlon 64 FX gives complete confidence in the

"These products give Athlon 64 FX power users an avenue to get to 4 Gigabytes of
memory, or to 2 Gigabytes with room to expand later. This is ideal for graphics
applications and for resource hungry new games such as Doom 3 said Corsair
Marketing Director Joe James.
