Legit Reviews are on a winning streak in terms of early and exclusive coverage from CES thus far, previously having given us a peek at a 1000W PSU and new water block from OCZ, an all-carbon fiber PC case from Ultra, and now dropping by Corsair's stand to get a good look at some new ultra fast PC2-10000 DDR2 memory modules (1250MHz!) specifically designed for motherboards utilizing the NVIDIA nForce 680 SLI chipset.
This would've given Corsair bragging rights as to producing the world's highest frequency modules to date, only Patriot Memory recently gave everyone the heads up that they would be showcasing PC2-10100 (1302MHz) memory at CES. Phwoar!
The 2GB PC2-10000 memory kit requries 2.4V to run at 1250MHz with 5-5-5-18 2T timings, which is common for memory kits above 1GHz. While visiting with Corsair we saw numerous working kits on a couple different systems and even got a chance to see a kit of this memory running on a test system with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 that was overclocked even higher than 1250MHz!
Corsiar was able to leave the multiplier alone and crank up the Front Side Bus (FSB) on their Core 2 Duo up to 437.5MHz. By running their memory unlinked on the eVGA 680 SLI motherboard they were able to hit some pretty high frequencies. The end result was 656.3MHz, which means the memory was running at an actual frequency of 1312.6MHz.
