Corsair Memory, a leading producer of high-speed memory modules for enthusiasts, on Monday announced its DDR3 memory modules and also said it would demonstrate DDR3 working at unbelievable clock-speed at Computex Taipei 2007 trade-show.

“Corsair is supporting the industry’s transition to DDR3 with a full line of highly-engineered memory solutions. Our partnerships with leading technology companies and suppliers have allowed us to be first-to-market with the world’s fastest production DDR3 memory and demonstrating our next-generation Dominator running at 2GHz,” said Jack Peterson, vice president of marketing at Corsair.

The family of Corsair’s DDR3 memory products includes Dominator  2GB dual-channel kit that operates at 1600MHz with CL10 8-8-24 latency settings, XMS3 DHX 2GB dual-channel kit that is capable of working at 1333MHz with CL9 9-9-24 timings and classic XMS3 2GB kits that function at 1066MHz (CL7 7-7-21) or 1333MHz (CL9 9-9-24) frequencies.

Like their DDR2 brethren, DDR3 Dominator and XMS3 DHX feature Corsair’s dual-path heat exchange (DHX) cooling technology – quad-layer heat sink design that optimizes memory performance and reliability by maximizing thermal dissipation. With DHX technology, heat is removed via two paths – the leads of the BGA chips into the PCB (convective cooling) and the back of the BGA packages into the custom designed extruded aluminum heat sinks (conductive cooling).

“DDR3 memory technology brings scalability and features that DDR2 cannot deliver. The fact that we are able to realize 50% more memory speed rating at launch compared to the standard DDR3-1066 specification is simply stunning.,” added Mr. Peterson.

Given that the only DDR3-supporting chipsets are from Intel Corp., 50% memory overclocking potential should be attributed to their quality as well.

The new Dominator DDR3 will be available shortly after Computex. Both XMS3 DHX and XMS3 classic products are currently available through Corsair’s worldwide authorized dealer channel. Pricing is unknown.
