Corsair® Memory, Inc., a worldwide leader in high performance memory and
cooling products for enthusiasts and overclockers, today is pleased to unveil
XMS2-8000UL as its latest addition to the high performance XMS family of
products. First in the industry to ship DDR2 memory modules at factory default
frequency of 1GHz, Corsair once again demonstrates its leadership position in
high performance products and commitment to support platform transitions.

Available immediately in both single module and dual kit packages and rated
to run at aggressive latency settings of 5-4-4-9, the new XMS2-8000UL was
developed in collaboration with ASUS® Computer for its latest Intel® i955X
chipset based motherboard, the P5WD2 Premium. Backed with a life time warranty
and a potential to be overclocked to 1066+ Mhz, Corsair’s new XMS2-8000UL
complements ASUS’ P5WD2 Premium motherboard as the ultimate choice for
enthusiasts. In SiSoft Sandra memory test performed at Corsair, overclocking
XMS2-8000UL memory to 1066 MHz delivers an incredible 17% memory performance
improvement compared with DDR2-667. Leveraging Intel processor’s native support
for multi-threaded tasks, Corsair brings new memory capability to the platform
to run memory intensive applications such as 3D games concurrently with other
demanding applications.

"Last month, we saw enthusiasts worldwide overclocking our ultra low latency
XMS2-5400ULTM memory modules to over 1GHz. This month, we are pushing the
envelope further with the introduction of the native low-latency 1GHz parts"
said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair. "Corsair’s
engineers have achieved a milestone in memory development with the XMS2-8000UL.
Combined with the availability of performance motherboards such as the ASUS
P5WD2, we expect adoption of high performance DDR2 memory to explode," continued
Beekley.
