Memory maker No.1 in 2003 according to X-bit labs readers announced today its new products intended specifically for die-hard enthusiasts and AMD Athlon FX microprocessors. With these modules, AMD Athlon 64 FX users will be able to install up to 4GB of PC3200 memory.

Keeping in mind that AMD Athlon 64 FX-51 processors are not that excellent overclockers with very few exceptions, Corsair decided to address the amount of RAM, but not its speed, with its innovative TwinX2048RE-3200 memory kit. The Fremont, California-based producer of consumer-oriented memory today kicked off 2GB RAM kit for dual-channel environments and especially AMD Athlon 64 FX processors.

The new TwinX2048RE-3200 is a matched pair of 1GB Registered PC3200 modules with ECC that has twice the density of existing Registered PC3200 parts. Each module is built with eighteen 512Mb (64Mx8) chips which do not require stacking. These new parts support CL 3-3-3-8 latency settings.

This matched 2GB pair will also be available as individual modules: CMX1048RE-3200 is a 1GB Registered PC3200 module packaged solo. Even though such modules are fully compatible with AMD Opteron processors, Corsair positions its novelties only for AMD Athlon 64 FX - a high-end processor for games.

Both products are available with either black or platinum coloured aluminium heat spreaders. Both parts will begin shipping immediately to distributors and resellers worldwide.
