Corsair Unveils DDR2-800, DDR2-1066 Memory Modules With EPP
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.
