Corsair 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 nForce 590 chipset based motherboards and feature Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP).
The TWIN2X2048-8500C5 and the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 are the first in the XMS family of products to feature Enhanced Performance Profiles. These modules have also been certified "SLI Ready".
The EPP feature utilizes the advanced memory timings captured in the unused portion of the JEDEC standard Serial Presence Detect (SPD). EPP brings simplified overclocking success for entry level enthusiasts, and access to more advanced memory specifications and a higher recovery point for hard-core overclockers. To take full advantage of the Enhanced Performance Profiles, motherboards designed with a special BIOS can recognize the presence of EPP settings. Once these settings are enabled, the system boots directly into the memory's specified settings and takes immediate advantage of the increased performance.
The TWIN2X2048-8500C5 modules are organized as 64M * 8, have 5-5-5-15 timings, 1066MHz frequency, 2.2V voltage. The TWIN2X2048-6400C4 modules have similar organization and voltage, 4-4-4-12 timings, 800MHz frequency.
The TWIN2X2048-8500C5 and the TWIN2X2048-6400C4 are available immediately in 2GB kits.

MSI's latest K9N series utilizes the latest nForce 590 SLI / 570 SLI / 570 chipsets, supporting the new-generation Socket AM2 with dual-channel DDR2-800 memory support. The K9 Series motherboards also feature Dual CoreCell 2, SLI, Creative Audigy Sound and heat pipe / passive cooling.
The K9N series supports 4-6 SATA II ports (RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5), and 2 x ATA133 channels so you can connect up to 4 IDE drives. Motherboards also offer 8-10 USB 2.0 High-Speed ports and Gigabit LAN.
The series currently includes four products. First, there's the top-end K9N Diamond with enhanced tweaking options and performance settings.
Next, there's the K9N SLI Platinum, the silent SLI solution.
Next is K9N Ultra, the mainstream AM2 gaming platform.
Finally, there's the K9A Platinum, the CrossFire Dual-GPU motherboard based on the ATI Radeon Xpress3200 Crossfire Dual-GPU chipset.
BenQ launched the BenQ FP91R monitor, the first in its new R-series of LCD displays for professional use.
The BenQ FP91R is equipped with a luminance compensation feature which automatically calibrates for optimum luminance. An independent six-color (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) adjustment allows professionals to closely match their designs to actual printed materials. The BenQ FP91R standard user-friendly features include OSD (On-Screen-Display) interface, wired controller, pivot/height adjustment and USB ports.
The BenQ FP91R will be available at the end of May.
Albatron Technology announced its new KM51PV-AM2 motherboard featuring AMD's integrated DDR2 memory controllers for K8 processors.
Albatron's KM51PV-AM2 will feature NVIDIA's GeForce 6150 chipset with integrated graphics engine like its predecessor, the KM51PV, did. The novelty maintains popular features such as built-in D-Sub, DVI, TV Out and HDTV interfaces. Also included are four SATA II channels with RAID.
The company also announced Albatron 7300GT graphics card with a passive heat dissipation device. This card uses the latest generation PCI Express standards, employs NVIDIA's SLI technology and supports all of the current mainboard designs on the market for this type of card.
Albatron designed the 7300GT with a heat pipe that dissipates heat to an array of thin metal fins which hang off the end of the card. The fins then use the wind circulation from embedded case fans to dissipate the heat.
The engine core clock on the 7300GT reaches 400 MHz. It also supports Scalar 8 pipeline design which improves engine core efficiency. As for memory, the GeForce 7300GT carries 256 MB of DDR2 memory clocked at 700 MHz.
The 7300GT also features a newer edition of NVIDIA's PureVideo technology which allows the 7300GT to support 1080p HD video output. Another supported feature is the new H.264 standards for video and music.
