Corsair Memory has resolved issues with Elpida “Hyper” memory chips and on Wednesday re-launched its Dominator GT products powered by the appropriate ICs. The firm said it worked closely with Elpida to resolve the issues and it can be expected that other memory module producers will also resolve the problems with “Hyper” chips in the near future.
“The issue with the Hyper RAMs was discovered with the help of the enthusiast community, and we worked closely with them to solve it. Our lab was able to correlate the failures to specific batches of early material, we worked very closely with Elpida to determine the root cause of the issue and to define the associated corrective actions to take. We are confident that every GT module using the Elpida Hyper IC Corsair ships from today will meet our strict quality and reliability standard,” said John Beekley, vice president of applications engineering at Corsair.
The Dominator GT memory kits are being re-introduced with updated part numbers, and will be available within one to two weeks. All Dominator GT modules are black with red fins, and include the Airflow cooling fan. Module kits and specifications are as follows:
- 6GB kit for Intel Core i7: Matched set of three 2GB modules, DDR3, 2000MHz, CL7 7-7-20 latency timings;
- 4GB kit for AMD Phenom II AM3: Matched pair of 2GB modules, DDR3, 1600MHz, CL6 6-6-18 latency timings;
- 6GB kit for Intel Core i7: Matched set of three 2GB modules, DDR3, 2000MHz, CL8 8-8-24 latency timings;
- 6GB kit for Intel Core i7: Matched set of three 2GB modules, DDR3, 1866MHz, CL7 7-7-20 latency timings.
Eeither Corsair nor Elpida revealed the cause of the issues with the Dominator GT memory modules.
Elpida’s most advanced DDR3 can operate in 667MHz – 2500MHz frequency range with 1.2V – 1.5V voltage settings.
