Corsair Memory, a leading maker of high-end memory modules, on Thursday unveiled its new Dominator GTX memory modules that can operate at rather unbelievable clock-speed of 2.40GHz in dual-channel mode. The modules have already passed Intel Corp.’s XMP-ready certification at 2.33GHz.

 

Corsair’s new Dominator GTX 4GB memory kit can support 2400MHz clock-speed with CL9 11-9-27 at a voltage of just 1.65V, a rather spectacular achievement. Intel certified the modules to work at 2333MHz with Intel Core i7 processors in LGA1156 form-factor. Corsair Dominator GTX modules are individually hand-screened and tested to ensure leading-edge performance. They are designed specifically for enthusiasts and overclockers who want to achieve the highest performance possible, and to break benchmark world records.

“Building the fastest memory for extreme overclockers and enthusiasts requires considerable engineering expertise, combined with a unique understanding of the complexities of overclocking. Intel is one of the most meticulous and sophisticated technology companies in the world, and so achieving XMP-Ready certification at the astonishing frequency of 2333MHz once again clearly demonstrates Corsair’s performance leadership,” said Kevin Conley, vice president of engineering at Corsair.

Corsair Dominator GTX modules are available exclusively from Corsair’s online store at $200 per 2GB memory module. They utilize Corsair's patented DHX+ heatsink and are supplied with extra-tall cooling fins to maximize heat dissipation.
