Corsair today announced broad availability of the world’s first production DDR2-1066 and DDR2-800 low latency 2GB kits. The new TWIN2X2048-8500C5 and the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 are optimized for the upcoming NVIDIA nForce® 590 chipset based motherboards and feature Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP). Rated at scorching fast 1066MHz, the latest TWIN2X2048-8500C5 combines the best of high frequency performance and high density in one 2GB matched pair. Joining the growing XMS DDR2 product line, Corsair’s TWIN2X2048-6400C4 is aimed at gamers and enthusiasts who demand low latency at standard 800MHz frequency. Available in signature black XMS heat spreaders, the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 is built using carefully selected RAMs.

Corsair Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high
performance memory, today announced broad availability of the world’s first
production DDR2-1066 and DDR2-800 low latency 2GB kits. The new
TWIN2X2048-8500C5 and the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 are optimized for the upcoming
NVIDIA nForce® 590 chipset based motherboards and feature Enhanced Performance
Profiles (EPP).

“During the collaborative phase of EPP development, we worked very closely with
NVIDIA to optimize these 2 new parts on motherboards based on their upcoming
chipset. The end result is that our new XMS DDR2 modules not only boot at
extreme speeds and low latency, they also have guaranteed compatibility at the
advanced memory timings,” said Richard Hashim, Director of Product Management at
Corsair Memory. “The performance difference of DDR2-1066 and low latency of CL4
is significant. Corsair is dedicated to continue develop and launch cutting edge
DDR2 technology,” said Hashim.

Rated at scorching fast 1066MHz, the latest TWIN2X2048-8500C5 combines the best
of high frequency performance and high density in one 2GB matched pair.
Continuing the tradition of producing memory that perform at extreme speeds,
Corsair flies past the competition to be the first manufacturer to offer
DDR2-1066 2GB kits in mass production.

Joining the growing XMS DDR2 product line, Corsair’s TWIN2X2048-6400C4 is aimed
at gamers and enthusiasts who demand low latency at standard 800MHz frequency.
Available in signature black XMS heat spreaders, the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 is built
using carefully selected RAMs. These modules allow users to experience superior
memory performance at 800MHz with uncompromised stability.

The TWIN2X2048-8500C5 and the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 are the first in the XMS family
of products to feature Enhanced Performance Profiles. These modules have also
been certified “SLI Ready”. The EPP feature elevates memory performance by
utilizing the advanced memory timings captured in 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 the Enhanced Performance Profiles, 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.
