Have you ever wanted to spend the value of a full desktop PC on a couple of memory modules? If so, now's your chance. Corsair has announced that its new TW3X2G2133C9DF 2GB Dominator DDR3-2133 memory kit is now available at "select Corsair retailers."
The Dominator DDR3 kit can run at speeds of up to 2133MHz, or a theoretical maximum of 17GB/s per channel, making it the world's fastest, according to Corsair. Both 1GB modules in the kit have latencies of 9-9-9-24, and Corsair says they'll need 2.0V of juice to hit their rated speed. The firm claims to have tested the modules successfully at those specs in the "black" memory slots of an Nvidia nForce 790i-based motherboard. To avoid heat problems, Corsair sells the TW3X2G2133C9DF with a cooling bracket that has three tiny fans mounted on it.
We had a look around to check availability and found the kit in stock at Newegg for $549 with free shipping—a few bucks cheaper than Corsair's $575 MSRP.
