PC4000 is the fastest memory currently available in Corsair's line of memory. While the price is quite expensive, some people are going to be able to justify the cost to get the absolute most out of their systems.
It will be interesting to see how the speed differs when moving from PC3500 to PC3700 then finally to PC4000. Having a multitude of Corsair memory (over a couple grand worth, in fact), you will be able see what advantages you would get when spending your hard earned cash on PC4000 instead of PC3500 and so forth.
Module Size: 2 X 512 MB
Package: 184-pin LONG DIMM
Naming: DDR PC4000
CAS Latency: 3
The new packaging seen in the PC4000 series of memory gives shop owners the chance to have it hanging off a rack. Unfortunately though, we can't see ourselves walking into a retail store Down Under and seeing someone keeping stock of 50 X PC4000 Corsair modules due to their price.
The retail packaging makes the memory look better and you can easily see through it and tell what memory you are getting without having to damage the packaging to find out. The same packaging can be found on all of Corsair's new memory.
These are the first PC4000 modules we have had a chance to look at and if it wasn't for the success of Intel's Pentium 4 C range of processors, such memory wouldn't have been useful for at least another 6 months. Corsair, as you would expect, was one of the first memory companies to jump on the DDR500 bandwagon. We will see if it's worth the jump to it in just a moment.
One thing you may not notice in the pictures is that Corsair has moved over to a piano black heat spreader that gives off a very smooth and shiny effect. The original ones offered a more mat black look and it is nice to see the new paint job on the PC4000 modules. As far as we can tell there is no actual difference in the heat spreader apart from the decision to go for a much nicer piano black finish which just oozes with complete style.
