Corsair Memory announced its new memory modules for personal computers powered by AMD Athlon 64 FX processors. The new chips are not only the fastest offerings available for AMD’s enthusiast-oriented 64-bit CPUs, but are also the industry’s first registered memory modules with 433MHz clock-speed.

 

The new TwinX1024RE-3500LLPT kit of registered memory modules with ECC is tested and certified to operate at aggressive latency settings (2-3-2-6) to offer optimum performance. The parts all feature Corsair’s Plug-n-Frag SPD’s so the modules boot at the advanced 2-3-2-6 settings with no tweaking.

“This product will offer gaming enthusiasts a path to reach new performance peaks with the Athlon 64 FX processor, without the need to tweak latency settings,” a spokesperson for Corsair Memory said.

Registered memory modules and AMD Athlon 64 FX microprocessors are not generally considered as good overclockers, though, there are some bright exceptions: OCZ Technology recently said its PC3200 ECC memory sticks had been set to work at 524MHz with an AMD Athlon 64 FX-51 processor by an enthusiast. It is likely that users of Corsair’s TwinX1024RE-3500LLPT kit of registered memory modules will also take advantage of higher memory speeds.

Matched pair of 512MB 433MHz registered memory modules is available immediately through Corsair resellers worldwide.
