Fremont, CA, May 20, 2008 - Corsair, a worldwide leader in high performance computer and flash memory products, announced today that Corsair Labs has set the world record for the highest achieved DDR3 frequency.

Verified and validated by CPU-Z, Corsair Labs achieved an astounding speed of 2462MHz at CL=9 with a single-rank 1GB module. This new world record eclipses all previous CPU-Z validated memory benchmarks. This record was set using Corsair's award winning DOMINATOR DDR3 memory module paired with an Asus P5E3 Premium motherboard based on the Intel X48 chipset.

DDR2 is getting some rather oddly clocked modules as it matures, like Aeneon's newest XTune 2GB kit which is clocked at 1142MHz.  It is built to DDR2-800 CL5 specs, but is able to go faster if your board can handle it.  Big Bruin's could handle those speeds and more, the kit toped out at 1242MHz with the default 5-5-5-15 timings.

DDR2 is still running strong

Thanks to ever increasing clock rates, and lower latencies than DDR3; DDR2 is still going strong.  One of your newest choices is the Kingston HyperX 2GB PC2-9200 kit a pair of 1Gb DIMMs.  The default clock speed of 1150MHz is strange, but hitting 1200MHz is awfully easy, as you can see at Big Bruin.

The technical term would be gobs of memory

8Gb kits are uncommon, but you can find kits for sale like the OCZ Quad 2Gb that Madshrimps tested.  They start out by looking at the rumours surrounding the usage of 8Gbs of RAM in a system, and then dispel them.  They felt the only sticking point was the price, but at $200, 2Gb of DDR3 will cost almost as much.

 Kingston's PC2-9600 DDR2 (1200MHz) kit runs 5-5-5-15 timings at 2.3V and is just begging to be pushed farther.  Big Bruin had no troubles using this RAM to push an E6850 to 400Mhz with a FSB:DRAM ratio of 5:8.  Considering how cheap these modules are, if you even suspect your RAM is holding back a better overclock, you might want to invest in this kit.
