Fremont, CA, June 20, 2003: Corsair Memory, Inc., an industry leader in ultra-performance DDR DRAM computer memory modules for gaming and overclocking applications, has announced new XMS3700 additions to their popular XMS family of memory modules. These ultra-fast new modules raise the bar for extreme performance, giving PC enthusiasts further headroom for overclocking their memory bus. Corsair’s XMS3700 products are available immediately from resellers worldwide.
Corsair’s offering includes 256 MByte and 512 MByte modules available individually or as matched “TWINX” pairs. The new additions consist of eight products, the following four clad in either black or silver (PT) heat spreaders:
- CMX256A-3700: 256 MByte, 467 MHz DIMM module
- CMX512-3700: 512 MByte, 467 MHz DIMM module
- TWINX512-3700: 512 MByte, 467 MHz DIMM module pair, kit consists of two matched CMX256A-3700 DIMMs
- TWINX1024-3700: 1 GByte, 467 MHz DIMM module pair, kit consists of two matched CMX512-3700 DIMMs
Each module has been tested at 467 MHz on an Asus P4C800 dual channel DDR motherboard based on the Intel 875P “Canterwood” chipset. TWINX kits are tested as a matched pair and physically packaged together immediately after passing test, guaranteeing that the customer receives a product that has been verified in the dual channel environment. JEDEC standard latency settings of 3-4-4-8 allow these modules to achieve extraordinarily high clock speeds for optimum performance in many system configurations.
After extensive testing of a very broad selection of RAM chips, Corsair engineers designed the XMS3700 around the only RAMs that could pass their stringent qualifications. Corsair’s benchmarking showed that faster clock speeds were more critical to improving performance than lower latencies. Therefore the XMS3700 delivers the highest attainable benchmarks with today’s fastest available technology.
According to Don Lieberman, Corsair’s VP of Engineering, "Our new XMS3700 memory is designed for true enthusiasts who demand the highest levels of performance. By easing up the latency specs on these modules we were able to support faster clock speeds that result in big performance gains...while maintaining the rock solid stability that only TWINX delivers.”
