A-DATA re-works its XPG 2000MHz DDR3 modules

By: Array

A-DATA has entered the DDR3-2000MHz ring with some new "v2.0" XPG Gaming Series modules this week which are even better optimized for Intel's X58, P55 and H55 platforms, sporting 9-9-9-24 timings at 1.65v.

Corsair shatters dual-channel memory frequency record for AMD CPUs

Corsair is a huge part of the memory market for computers of all types for enthusiasts and gamers. The company makes all sorts of gear like flash drives and power supplies in addition to PC memory. Corsair is always out to prove its memory is tops and the company has announced that it has broken a record.

 

Corsair reports that it has broken the world record for dual-channel memory on AMD Phenom II processors. The record breaking run was made on a machine using Dominator GTX4 Memory, a Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler, and a Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition CPU.

 

Corsair was able to get the RAM to run stable at 2287.6MHz and the record setting run was independently validated. That is some fast memory for sure. The board in the record setting PC was an ASUS Crosshair IV Formula.

 

Patriot gears up for Computex with 2500MHz DDR3 modules and SandForce SSDs

By: Array

Patriot has some nice playing cards for Computex this year. The strong standing storage and memory maker is readying up some super fast DDR3-2500MHz "Sector 5 Edition" memory kits under its Viper II Series that will be available in both 4 and 6GB kits. Their 2500MHz speeds will be possible with timings of 9-11-9-27T at 1.65v.

Corsair releases super fast 2533MHz Dominator GTX modules

By: Array

Corsair has pushed memory boundaries yet again with today's release of some new super fast DDR3 memory modules under its top-end Dominator GTX line-up.

 

The new Dominator GTX4 series brings with it modules that are guarenteed to handle speeds of up to 2533MHz. Each RAM chip used for these modules is individually screened and graded for performance. The top performing chips are kept aside for these modules whilst the remainder return to normal manufacturing lines.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15159_06.png

 

These modules can run their 2533MHz rated speed with latencies of 9-11-10-30 at Intel's acceptable 1.65V. Being part of the Dominator GTX series, the modules include Corsair's DHX+ high-quality heatsinks which sport extended aluminum fins for improved heat dissipation.

 

It goes without saying that if you want a pair of these modules in your rig you'll be digging extra deep into your pockets. But as always, if you want the best expect to pay a significant premium to have it.

 

For further information on Corsair's Dominator GTX4 2533MHz modules, you can read the official announcement here.

Patriot releases super fast 2500MHz DDR3 kits

By: Array

Patriot has just claimed to have brought the world's fastest DDR3 memory to market with its new Viper II series Sector 5 Edition memory kit that boasts rated speeds of 2500MHz.

 

The kit comprises 2x2GB modules and thus is suited to Intel's P55 platform. The modules run at their rated 2500MHz speed thanks to more relaxed latencies of 9-11-9-27.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15037_01.jpg

 

As a member of their top-end Viper II Sector 5 series, the modules sport larger than usual heat spreaders with aluminum fins protruding out the top to better assist in heat dissipation.

 

Patriot also offers Viper II Sector 5 series modules with speed ratings of 2400MHz and 2133MHz. All kits carry with them lifetime warranties.

 

For further details, you can get to the official announcement here.

G.Skill intros Flare series 1800MHz DDR3 kits for AMD users

By: Array

G.Skill has just launched its new Flare series high-performance DDR3 memory kits that are primarily suited to the AMD AM3 790 and 890 platforms with AMD C3 stepping CPUs.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15021_03.jpg

 

The modules are good for speeds of 1800MHz out of the box and come with high quality over-sized heatsinks to better assist in heat dissipation which also gives the potential for a higher overclock ceiling if the user's looking to push beyond the norm.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15021_04.jpg

 

The modules come in 2x2GB kits and can be purchased with the following specifications :-

 

• DDR3 1800MHz 4GB (2GBx2) CL6-8-6-24 1.65V
• DDR3 1800MHz 4GB (2GBx2) CL7-8-7-24 1.65V
• DDR3 1800MHz 4GB (2GBx2) CL8-8-8-24 1.65V
• DDR3 1800MHz 4GB (2GBx2) CL9-9-9-27 1.65V

 

No word on pricing just yet.

 

G.Skill's press release on the new AMD optimized Flare series can be found here.

OCZ gives P55/H55/H57 users higher density 8GB Gold Series kits

By: Array

If the typically sized 4GB kits on the market for your current P55/H55/H57 based desktop rig isn't satisfactory enough for your needs, OCZ has just come out with higher density 4GB modules (available in 8GB dual-channel kits) under its Gold Series lineup.

Corsair's Dominator GTX1 gets pushed to a new extreme

By: Array

A well known overclocker in Romania known as "matose" has shown just what Corsair's top-end Dominator series GTX1 DDR3 memory is capable of in the right hands.

 

TweakTown image news/1/4/14879_08.png

 

Corsair reports that even in his initial testing phase using only air cooling on the CPU and memory controller, he still managed to get stability from the modules running at 2666MHz, backed by a validation on the CPU-Z website. A nice feat indeed with the modules already pushed to extremes out of the box at their rated 2400MHz speed.

 

However, in typical pro overclocker fashion, he wasn't satisfied there and decided to take things to the next level. It was time to strap some dry ice to the platform and see how far the ceiling could rise with the modules, if much at all.

 

TweakTown image news/1/4/14879_09.jpg

 

Thankfully, it certainly turned out worthwhile with an incredible CPU-Z validated clock rate of 2906MHz, showing just what kind of headroom these highly impressive modules have in reserve when in the right hands.

 

Corsair were so proud of matose's achievement, they decided to issue out a press release giving the full scoop and there's more to be read over at the Xtreme Systems Forums.

TweakTown image news/1/4/14845_12.jpg

 

The 4GB kit sports G.Skill's radically designed Trident series heatsinks for improved heat dissipation which you can see in the picture above.

 

No word on pricing or availability yet, but for obvious reasons you'll be digging deep for performance like this. We hope to get a sample in for review very soon to see how well they shine and if there's even more breathing space in the overclocking realm.

 

G.Skill's official announcement on the new Trident series 2500MHz 4GB DDR3 Kit can be located here folks.
