Corsair Launches Dominator GTX 2250MHz Ultra-Performance DDR3 Memory

Corsair announced the launch of its new Dominator GTX ultra-high performance DDR3 memory modules for Intel and AMD platforms, designed specifically for performance enthusiasts, gamers and extreme overclockers.

Corsair Dominator GTX modules are individually screened and tested on multiple high-performance Intel X58 and P55 chipset platforms to ensure that they operate at the frequency of 2250MHz at low-latency timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.65V.



In addition to high frequencies possible on Intel platforms, Dominator GTX modules have also been tested and verified to operate at up to 1800MHz CL6 in Socket AM3 motherboards for AMD Phenom II processors. The following table shows baseline performance in a number of popular DDR3 platforms.

1. Corsair GTX is screened and tested on Intel P55 Lynnfield platforms to meet DDR3-2250 8-8-8-24 specification.
2. Performance characteristics by platform are based on performance and qualification tests on selected test configurations.
3. Baseline performance is not guaranteed on every motherboard brand and model of each platform.
4. Corsair GTX performance on Intel X58 chipset platforms presented in the table may not be typical.
5. Corsair Airflow is required to meet baseline performance on all platforms.

Dominator GTX modules use Corsair's DHX+ heatsink and are supplied with extra-tall cooling fins to maximize heat dissipation. The part number for this module is CMGTX2, and it is sold as a single module, allowing enthusiasts to purchase two modules for dual-channel configurations or three modules for triple-channel configurations. For the highest performance and frequency scaling, Corsair recommends using the GT Airflow fan with tall mounting brackets (CMXAF2 GTL).

The CMGTX2 is screened by hand, in multiple passes, by Corsair's lab in Fremont, California, and availability will be limited. It will be launched on the Corsair Online Store on December 8, 2009, at 9AM Pacific Time, and will be sold on a first come first served basis.

Corsair's DHX+ technology uses specially designed, high-quality heatsinks and a custom-designed PCB that allows both the front and rear of the memory ICs and the printed circuit board itself to be cooled. DHX+ technology also allows removing the cooling fins to install a range of modular cooling accessories, including extended heatsink fins, the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H30 water cooling block and Corsair Cooling Ice Series T30 subambient cooling system.
