Corsair Memory, a leading supplier of dynamic random access memory and flash products, on Tuesday unveiled its family of memory modules designed for Intel Core i7 processors with triple-channel memory controllers. The new breed of Corsair DDR3 memory modules offer broad range of price- as well as performance-points, hence, users will have many options to choose from.

“Corsair is famous for producing cutting-edge products for new platforms. With the Core i7 processor’s new triple-channel memory controller, memory bandwidth is more important than ever, and Corsair goes above and beyond the minimum requirements and delivers real performance gains with a wide range of products,” said Martin Mueller, senior director of engineering at Corsair.

Memory modules that form the new families of Corsair Dominator and Corsair XMS kits are 1GB or 2GB in capacity and can operate at 1333MHz, 1600MHz and 1866MHz. Different specs of the devices allow Corsair to offer kits in $120 - $475 price-range. It is interesting to note that Corsair managed to clock its highest-performing Core i7-oriented modules at 1866MHz, considerably higher compared to 1600MHz products revealed by OCZ Technology a week before.

Unfortunately, Corsair remained tight-lipped over latency and voltage settings of its new products, even though it disclosed manufacturer suggested retail prices for each kit:

  • Corsair Dominator 6GB kit 1866MHz CL9 with airflow fan (TR3X6G1866C9DF) – $475
  • Corsair Dominator 3GB kit 1866MHz CL9 with airflow fan (TR3X3G1866C9DF) – $250
  • Corsair Dominator 6GB kit 1600MHz CL8 with airflow fan (TR3X6G1600C8D) – $300
  • Corsair Dominator 3GB kit 1600MHz CL8 with airflow fan (TR3X3G1600C8D) – $175
  • Corsair XMS3 6GB kit 1333MHz CL9 (TR3X6G1333C9) – $230
  • Corsair XMS3 3GB kit 1333MHz CL9 (TR3X3G1333C9) – $120

As usually, Corsair Dominator memory modules are equipped with active cooling system consisting of two fans and also use specially developed print-circuit board.

Corsair’s PC3-10666 (DDR3 1333MHz) part is available immediately in both 3x1GB and 3x2GB densities. Next to launch will be the Corsair Dominator PC3-12800 (DDR3 1600MHz) kit, with the PC3-15000 (DDR3 1866MHz) kits to follow just before the official launch of the Intel Core i7 processor in mid-November.
