Memorie DDR550 a latenze ridotte da Corsair
Corsair ha annunciato la prossima disponibilità di nuovi moduli memoria DDR, capaci di abbinare frequenze di lavoro particolarmente elevate con latenze di accesso non troppo elevate. I moduli TwinX1024-4400C25 sno dichiarati in grado di operare stabilmente sino alla frequenza di 550 MHz, ben superiorei ai 400 MHz di default delle memorie DDR400.
I timings di accesso certificati, a 550 MHz di clock, da Corsair sono quelli 2.5-4-4-8; rispetto ad altri moduli DDR500 e oltre disponibili in commercio il valore CAS è inferiore, 2.5 contro 3, e di conseguenza ci si possono aspettare prestazioni velocistiche leggermente superiori.
Di seguito il comunicato stampa ufficiale:
Fremont, CA, October 20, 2004: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today announced their fastest ever DDR memory module, a DDR550 module that supports very aggressive 2.5-4-4-8 latencies. These modules typically support 2-2-2-5 latencies at 400MHz clock speeds. The new parts are:
- TwinX1024-4400C25 matched pair of 512MB, DDR550, 2.5-4-4-8, black XMS modules
TwinX1024-4400C25PT matched pair of 512MB, DDR550, 2.5-4-4-8, platinum XMS modules
Both these parts are available immediately from resellers worldwide, and are also available as individual 512MB modules. TwinX kits are tested as a matched pair at their rated specifications and packaged together immediately after passing test, guaranteeing that the customer receives a product that has been verified in the dual channel environment. These modules include Corsairs classic black or platinum aluminum heat spreaders for improved heat dissipation.
The ultra high clock speeds supported by these modules make them an ideal choice for extreme overclockers seeking the ultimate in performance. According to Corsair VP of Applications Engineering John Beekley, weve tested these modules in our labs on a number of 875P, 865PE and 939-pin Athlon 64 FX based motherboards with extremely impressive results. This is the first time weve been able to run memory at 550 MHz on both Intel and AMD platforms and at CAS 2.5! Corsair R&D engineers have validated these modules on both Intel and AMD based platforms, but Corsairs production test lines for these parts employ the Asus P4C800-E motherboard. Moreover, weve driven our manufacturing cost down dramatically on this module compared to our earlier XMS4400 product, which will translate into surprisingly affordable street prices, Mr. Beekley added.
Detailed specifications on this product will be posted to Corsair's web site soon at www.corsairmemory.com/corsair/xms.html. These modules can be purchased through Corsairs authorized sales channels listed at www.corsairmemory.com/corsair/buy.html.
