Fremont, CA, January 13, 2003 - Corsair Memory, Inc., an industry leader in ultra-performance DDR DRAM modules for gaming and overclocking applications, has announced that it is now offering a new product family designed for use in motherboards with two memory channels. Such motherboards include those based on Nvidia's Nforce2 chip set and Intel's E7205 (Granite Bay) chip set.
The TWINXTM memory kits are composed of two low latency memory modules that have been tested as a pair in an Asus A7N8X dual channel motherboard. The matched pair of modules are then physically packaged together, guaranteeing that the customer receives a product that has been verified in the dual channel environment. These memory kits are available in sizes of both 512 MByte (two 256 MByte modules) and 1 GByte (two 512 MByte modules), at speeds of either 333 MHz (also known as PC2700) or 400 MHz (also known as PC3200).
These configurations are summarized below:
- TWINX512-2700LL: 512 Mbytes, 333 MHz, low latency module pair, kit consists of two matched CMX256A-2700LL DIMMs
- TWINX512-3200LL: 512 Mbytes, 400 MHz, low latency module pair, kit consists of two matched CMX256A-3200LL DIMMs
- TWINX1024-2700LL: 1 Gbyte, 333 MHz, low latency module pair, kit consists of two matched CMX512-2700LL DIMMs
- TWINX1024-3200LL: 1 Gbyte, 400 MHz, low latency module pair, kit consists of two matched CMX512-3200LL DIMMs
TWINX memory kits take the guesswork out of dual channel motherboards, stated John Beekley, Vice President of Marketing at Corsair. By using modules that have been 100 tested, as a pair, in this environment, the user can be confident in the performance and stability of his or her dual channel system.
