Corsair launches new low-latency DDR2-800 kits
Right on the heels of the availability announcement
for its first "SLI-Ready" 2 GB DDR2 memory kits, Corsair has announced the availability
a new 2 GB DDR2-800 kit with CAS 3 timings. Evidently aimed at AMD's newly-released Socket AM2 processors, Corsair's new kit features two 1 GB sticks rated for impressive 3-4-3-9 timings at 800 MHz. These modules also support Enhanced Performance Profiles
, which should give users a little hand with overclocking on new nForce 590 SLI-based motherboards like the Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe
. This kit will join Corsair's TWIN2X2048-6400C4 and TWIN2X2048-8500C5 kits among the first memory modules to support EPP, but exclusivity may come at a price: TWIN2X2048-6400C4 kits also run at 800 MHz, though with higher 4-4-4-12 timings, and they cost
a whopping $269.
