Corsair today launched the world’s fastest DDR2 memory, the TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR™. Designed for the new NVIDIA® nForce™ 680i SLI™ media and communications (MCP)-based motherboards, the new DOMINATOR extends Corsair’s leadership in ultra high performance memory. The TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR is designed to unleash performance of the new NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI-based platform. Built using RAMs that pass Corsair’s aggressive speed screening process, the new DDR2-9136 DOMINATOR is the world’s only production-ready memory rated at 1142MHz. In performance benchmark testing at third-party review sites, many of these modules have been reported delivering up to 1200MHz of performance when overclocked.

Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high performance enthusiast computer
products, today launched the world’s fastest DDR2 memory, the TWIN2X2048-9136C5D
DOMINATOR™. Designed for the new NVIDIA® nForce™ 680i SLI™ media and
communications (MCP)-based motherboards, the new DOMINATOR extends Corsair’s
leadership in ultra high performance memory.

Corsair Raises the Performance Bar
The TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR is designed to unleash performance of the new
NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI-based platform. Built using RAMs that pass Corsair’s
aggressive speed screening process, the new DDR2-9136 DOMINATOR is the world’s
only production-ready memory rated at 1142MHz. In performance benchmark testing
at third-party review sites, many of these modules have been reported delivering
up to 1200MHz of performance when overclocked. The new TWIN2X2048-9136C5D
feature Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) technology, allowing PC enthusiasts
simplified overclocking success and access to more advanced memory
specifications. The TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR is certified by NVIDIA as SLI-Ready
Memory, joining the NVIDIA SLI technology ecosystem to provide a building
foundation for an ultimate performance PC.

“Corsair continues to deliver the fastest memory optimized for today’s and
tomorrow’s platforms. Our close relationship with NVIDIA allows us to stay ahead
of the competition with new speed grades. By combining the new 1142MHz memory
modules from Corsair and the new NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI MCP-based motherboard,
we have a winning combination of hardware that elevates the end users’ overall
PC experience.” said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering. “We are proud
to deliver yet again another industry leading memory solution for performance
users.”

DHX Technology Makes 1142MHz a Production Reality
Corsair’s new DOMINATOR line of memory modules features innovative
quad-layer heat sink design and Corsair’s patent-pending Dual-path Heat Xchange
(DHX™) technology. DHX technology is the world’s most advanced memory module
thermal dissipation technology where heat is dissipated through two paths – the
leads of the BGA chips into the printed circuit board (PCB) and the back of the
BGA packages into the high-performance extruded aluminum heat sinks. Thanks to
the advanced thermal design of the DOMINATOR, memory modules rated at
scorching-fast 1142MHz operate with rock solid stability without the need of
elevated voltage. The result of the combination of DHX technology and the high
rated speed means PC enthusiasts can enjoy added performance edge at both stock
speed and when overclocked.

In addition to the DHX technology, these modules can be further cooled using
Corsair’s newly launched DOMINATOR Airflow Fans. These fans offer direct airflow
to the DOMINATOR modules for increased thermal dissipation and active heat
transfer away from the module.
“Corsair memory continues to be some of the fastest memory we test in our lab,
and we are delighted to work with them again to make DDR2-1200 support a reality
today. Both Corsair DOMINATOR memory and the new NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI MCP
deliver best in class performance, making them the ideal building foundation for
a dream machine,” said Drew Henry, general manager of the MCP business at
NVIDIA. “We congratulate Corsair for another frequency breakthrough!”
