Corsair Memory, a leading supplier of advanced memory modules for overclockers and performance enthusiasts, has quietly announced its 1600MHz and 1800MHz DDR3 memory modules. This time the company cannot claim “industry’s first” modules at the new speed bins, however, it is hardly a problem, as DDR3 still has to gain popularity on the market.

The new Corsair Dominator DDR3 memory modules – which come as 2GB dual-channel kit – can operate at 1800MHz with CL7 7-7-20 with 2V voltage setting. Currently Corsair’s modules can claim highest performance among ultra high speed memory offerings, as products at similar clock-speeds from Cellshock, OCZ Technology and SuperTalent feature higher timings, which means lower performance. The new Dominator products from Corsair are equipped with advanced heat-spreader that cools both memory chips and print-circuit board.

In addition, Corsair Memory also revealed XMS3 memory modules operating at 1600MHz with CL7 7-7-20 timings with 1.9V voltage, proving additional choice for consumers seeking for the highest possible performance.

Even though both PC3-14400 and PC3-12800 memory modules from Corsair feature interesting combinations of clock-speed, latency settings and voltages, they are unlikely to become popular overnight even among enthusiasts. The reason for that is the lack of additional performance provided by DDR3 over DDR2, which slowdowns the adoption of the new memory type even by those, who tend to be on the leading edge of technology.

Pricing of the new Corsair Dominator DDR3 and XMS3 memory modules remains to be seen, however, it is very likely to be extremely high even for enthusiasts.
