Corsair Dominator DDR3 Memory Sets New World Record

-2580MHz DDR3 Frequency Reached on Intel X48 Chipset-


Fremont, CA, July 31, 2008 – Corsair®,a worldwide leader in high
performance computer and flash memory products, announced today that
its Dominator DDR3 memory modules have again shattered the world record
for frequency. The record was set using the Asus ROG Rampage Extreme
motherboard (Intel X48 chipset) and Corsair Dominator memory, utilizing
Corsair’s award-winning DHX technology.


The world record of 2580 MHz was reached at latency settings of
9-9-9-24 using a Corsair Dominator DDR3 memory module. These results
were achieved with an Intel® Core™2 Duo E8400 processor overclocked to
a breathtaking 645MHz Front-Side Bus frequency. The results are
verified by CPU-Z, an industry standard for verifying overclocking
results, and are viewable here:


Corsair previously announced on May 20th its world record of 2462MHz
and has now raised the record up to 118MHz faster. Corsair achieved
these results as part of ongoing lab experiments on the effect of
temperature on memory performance. The 2580MHz memory speed was
achieved with the entire test platform -- including motherboard, CPU,
chip set, and memory -- chilled to -20 degrees Celsius.


 “We are proud that our Dominator Memory once again hit a new world
record” said Martin Mueller, Senior Director of Engineering, Corsair.
“Our proprietary technology used on Dominator DDR3 allows for
incredible overclocking results; we believe our technology is far
superior to any other when it comes to overclocking memory modules.”
