Corsair announced the introduction of two new DDR2-800 low latency 2GB kits. Designed with the advanced users in mind who demand performance, aesthetics and functionary in one package, the new TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 memory kits are optimized for the current AMD® socket AM2 platform and the upcoming Intel® platform. Joining the growing XMS DDR2 product line, Corsair’s TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 are aimed at gamers and enthusiasts who demand low latencies of 4-4-4-12 at standard 800MHz frequency. Similar to other new XMS DDR2 products from Corsair, the TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and the TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 feature Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP). The TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 are available immediately in matched pairs of 2GB kits through Corsair’s authorized distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers worldwide.

Corsair® Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high
performance memory, today announced the introduction of two new DDR2-800 low
latency 2GB kits. Designed with the advanced users in mind who demand
performance, aesthetics and functionary in one package, the new
TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 memory kits are optimized for the
current AMD® socket AM2 platform and the upcoming Intel® platform.

Joining the growing XMS DDR2 product line, Corsair’s TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO and
TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 are aimed at gamers and enthusiasts who demand low latencies
of 4-4-4-12 at standard 800MHz frequency. The Corsair XMS product family now
offers complete performance-oriented DDR2 solutions ranging from the classic XMS
to the PRO and the XPERT in a variety of speeds and densities. The
TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO features activity LEDs that show the level of memory usage,
while the TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 features a proprietary integrated micro-controller
with embedded sensors to measure voltage, temperature and frequency on the
memory module. Each of these parameters, along with a user-programmable
scrolling marquee, can be shown on a big alpha-numeric display that is a part of
the memory module. Both the PRO and the XPERT kits are available in Corsair’s
signature platinum heat spreaders. Continuing Corsair’s commitment to the
highest standard of engineering performance memory, the new 6400C4’s are built
using carefully selected RAMs and are optimized for new and upcoming platforms,
and promise superior memory performance at 800MHz.

“The new XMS DDR2 PRO and XPERT modules not only operate at fast 800MHz speeds
and low latency, they feature Corsair’s highly reviewed activity LEDs and
parametric displays,” commented Richard Hashim, Director of Product Marketing at
Corsair Memory. “Corsair will continue to develop and offer cutting edge memory
technology with features demanded by the enthusiast community,” continued Hashim.

Similar to other new XMS DDR2 products from Corsair, the TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO
and the TWIN2XP2048-6400C4 feature Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP). EPP
elevates memory performance by taking full advantage of the additional memory
parameters that are now added to 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 EPP,
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.
