Corsair 550 MHz CAS2.5 DDR Modules

Corsair announced their fastest ever DDR memory module, a DDR550 module that
supports very aggressive 2.5-4-4-8 latencies. These modules typically support
2-2-2-5 latencies at 400MHz clock speeds. The new parts are:

TwinX1024-4400C25 matched pair of 512MB, DDR550, 2.5-4-4-8, black XMS modules
TwinX1024-4400C25PT matched pair of 512MB, DDR550, 2.5-4-4-8, platinum XMS modules

Both these parts are available immediately from resellers worldwide, and are
also available as individual 512MB modules. TwinX kits are tested as a matched
pair at their rated specifications and packaged together immediately after passing
test, guaranteeing that the customer receives a product that has been verified
in the dual channel environment. These modules include Corsair’s classic black
or platinum aluminum heat spreaders for improved heat dissipation.

The ultra high clock speeds supported by these modules make them an ideal choice
for extreme overclockers seeking the ultimate in performance. According to Corsair
VP of Applications Engineering John Beekley, we’ve tested these modules in our
labs on a number of 875P, 865PE and 939-pin Athlon 64 FX based motherboards
with extremely impressive results. This is the first time we?ve been able to
run memory at 550 MHz on both Intel and AMD platforms and at CAS 2.5! Corsair
R&D engineers have validated these modules on both Intel and AMD based platforms,
but Corsair’s production test lines for these parts employ the Asus P4C800-E
motherboard. Moreover, we’ve driven our manufacturing cost down dramatically
on this module compared to our earlier XMS4400 product, which will translate
into surprisingly affordable street prices, Mr. Beekley added.
