San Francisco, CA, February 18, 2004 ? Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today announced their new XMS2 family of xtreme performance DDR2 memory modules.
The first product in this family is the Twin2X1024-4300, a matched pair of 512MB 533MHz 240-pin DDR2 modules. This product has been tested extensively on several different DDR2-based motherboards and is expected to be 100% compatible with the newest DDR2 chipsets and motherboards. Every Twin2X1024-4300 matched pair is tested as a pair in a dual channel DDR2 motherboard at 533MHz to ensure functionality at specified clock speeds in a dual channel environment. The Twin2X1024-4300 supports JEDEC standard 4-4-4-12 latencies, and comes equipped with classic black aluminum heat spreaders.
DDR2, the second generation of Double Data Rate memory technology, includes new features such as a larger 4-bit prefetch and programmable on-die termination (ODT) to reduce signal bounce and improve reliability at high speeds.
"This product is among the first and the fastest DDR2 modules in the world. It was designed specifically for gamers, overclockers and enthusiasts who demand exceptional performance" said Corsair President Andy Paul.
The Twin2X1024-4300 will be available through resellers worldwide starting in March. The product will also be available as individual 512MB modules in CM2X512-4300.
