Following OCZ Technology, GeIL and Kingston, who already announced DDR500 (so-called PC4000) memory modules rated for 500MHz frequency, Corsair Memory made a similar announcement, unveiling XMS4000 memory sticks. Similar to
Modules were pre-tested on ASUS P4C800 (i875P) mainboard in dual-channel mode. Timings, naturally, have to be very conservative to allow such high-speed operation.
