Corsair today unveiled the worlds fastest production DDR3 memory rated at a blazing-fast 1,600MHz (PC3-12,800) and the world preview of the Corsair DOMINATORTM memory running at 2,000MHz (PC3-16,000). Live demonstration of the new DOMINATOR memory will be on display in the Corsair VIP suite (#1334) at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The TWIN3X2048-1600C10D DOMINATOR is the latest addition to the Corsair line of high-performance memory modules. Also on display is the upcoming generation of DDR3 DOMINATORs, ranging from 1GB modules running at over 2,000MHz and 2GB modules showing performance promise for 64-bit based applications. All DDR3 products have been developed to support the new Intel® P35 and X38 Express platforms, ensuring customers of an extreme user experience whether for gaming or applications with high computing needs.

Corsair® http://www.corsair.com, the worldwide leader in high performance
computer and flash memory products, today unveiled the worlds fastest production
DDR3 memory rated at a blazing-fast 1,600MHz (PC3-12,800) and the world preview

All DDR3 modules operate at lower memory voltages to deliver better
performance with the same amount of power when compared to DDR2. Dynamic I/O
Signal Termination and On-die Dynamic Termination (ODT) reduce the reflective
signals transmitted to standby RAMs, thereby enabling support for higher memory
frequencies. A larger prefetch means more data is immediately available for the
processor and the differential data strobe reduces noise while accessing data,
especially at higher frequencies.

Corsair is supporting the industrys transition to DDR3 with a full line of
highly-engineered memory solutions. Our partnerships with leading technology
companies and suppliers have allowed us to be first-to-market with the worlds
fastest production DDR3 memory and demonstrating our next generation DOMINATOR
running at 2GHz, said Jack Peterson, VP of Marketing at Corsair. DDR3 memory
technology brings scalability and features that DDR2 cannot deliver. The fact
that we are able to realize 50% more memory speed rating at launch compared to
the standard DDR3-1066 specification is simply stunning. continued Peterson.

Like their DDR2 brethren, DDR3 DOMINATOR and XMS3 DHX feature Corsairs
patent-pending DHX technology – an innovative quad-layer heat sink design that
optimizes memory performance and reliability by maximizing thermal dissipation.
With DHX Technology, heat is removed via two paths the leads of the BGA chips
into the PCB (convective cooling) and the back of the BGA packages into the
custom designed extruded aluminum heat sinks (conductive cooling).

The enthusiast community demands solutions that push the envelope and are
capable of delivering the highest level performance experience, and very fast
DDR3 is the next step in delivering cutting-edge computing, said Steve R.
Peterson, Director of Chipset & Graphics Marketing, Intel. We work closely with
Corsair to help deliver a cutting edge experience for the enthusiast power user.
Corsairs release of the new DDR3-1600 DOMINATOR memory, combined with an Intel
P35 or X38 Express chipset based motherboard, plus an Intel Extreme Edition CPU,
shows just how exciting platforms based on DDR3 will be.
