Corsair will also be attending CeBIT and are set to release what they claim to be the fastest available memory modules to date for both DDR2 and DDR1 Intel / AMD platforms. Their new Intel-happy DDR-II TWIN2X1024-8500 series is available in a 2GB dual channel kit and will handle 1066MHz speeds, whilst the TWINX2048-4400PRO is also a 2GB dual channel kit ideally suited to the AMD platform and is stamped to run at 550MHz.

Unfortunately there's no mention of the latencies for either of these kits at this stage, but i'm sure we'll hear more from Corsair on the new kits once they're under the spotlight during CeBIT.

The official announcement resides here folks.

Fremont, CA (March 6, 2006) – Corsair Memory®, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high performance memory, today launched the world's fastest DDR2 and DDR1 memory solutions for the Intel® and the AMD® platforms. Rated at scorching fast 1066MHz, the new TWIN2X1024-8500 from Corsair delivers the highest memory frequency currently available to Intel users. Simultaneously, the new TWINX2048-4400PRO takes the lead with its rated 550MHz speed to unleash maximum performance on the AMD platform. Live demonstrations of the world's fastest memory modules can be seen at the Corsair booth in Hall 22, Stand 16B, Booth B6-8.
