Corsair Memory, one of the most respected producers of memory modules for overclockers on the planet, on Thursday introduced the highest-performing 8GB dual-channel DDR3 memory kit in the world. Thanks to extreme PC3-19200 speed and high-density, the new product will likely become a great choice for performance enthusiasts, who actually use their PCs for demanding applications.

Corsair's new Dominator GTX 8GB dual-channel memory kit can operate at 2.40GHz with CL9 11-10-30 timings at 1.65V memory voltage. The Dominator GTX 8GB 2400MHz kit consists of two memory modules based on a special PCB with Corsair’s DHX+ heatsink coupled with an AirFlow 2 GTL cooling fan for maximum reliability and further overclocking potential. The previous world's record for speed of "stock" 4GB memory modules was 2.30GHz and was achieved just about five weeks ago.

The 2.4GHz dual-channel DDR3 kits are the result of a "painstaking four-stage component screening process" which is passed by fewer than one in twenty memory ICs, which means that only 5% of appropriately designed DRAMs for high-speed operation can work at such high clock-speed. Qualification is performed on an Intel P55 motherboard, using the same rigorous test cycle applied to the rest of Corsair’s memory product line, the company said.

“The purpose of these kits is to help overclockers explore the limits of memory performance. They are the product of careful screening, selection, and testing, and we are eager to see what enthusiasts will do with them. As long as our customers are obsessed with making computers faster and more powerful, we will continue producing extraordinary memory kits to help make that happen," said Giovanni Sena, director of memory products at Corsair

The exclusive Corsair's new Dominator GTX 8GB (4GB*2 modules) dual-channel memory kit  may be purchased from Corsair’s web-store for rather whopping $499. The manufacturer noted that this is a limited edition product.

I read that CL7 1600 mhz ram will preform as CL9 2000 mhz ram.

They have CL7 2133 mhz ram now. That would preform the same as CL9 2400 mhz... providing the same logic?
