A couple of pairs of slick new 2GB DDR2 memory kits have been added to Corsair's lineup, these designed primarily to work with NVIDIA's upcoming nForce 590 chipset (Socket AM2 AMD platform), and also feature EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) technology.

The new TWIN2X2048-8500C5 kit runs at a frequency of up to 1066MHz with rated timings of 5-5-5-15 whilst the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 has a ceiling of 800MHz with tighter timings of 4-4-4-12.

Fremont, CA (May 22, 2006) -Corsair Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high performance memory, today announced broad availability of the world's first production DDR2-1066 and DDR2-800 low latency 2GB kits. The new TWIN2X2048-8500C5 and the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 are optimized for the upcoming NVIDIA nForceĀ® 590 chipset based motherboards and feature Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP).

"During the collaborative phase of EPP development, we worked very closely with NVIDIA to optimize these 2 new parts on motherboards based on their upcoming chipset. The end result is that our new XMS DDR2 modules not only boot at extreme speeds and low latency, they also have guaranteed compatibility at the advanced memory timings," said Richard Hashim, Director of Product Management at Corsair Memory. "The performance difference of DDR2-1066 and low latency of CL4 is significant. Corsair is dedicated to continue develop and launch cutting edge DDR2 technology," said Hashim.
