Corsair Launches 24GB Dominator DDR3 Memory Kit for HPC Applications

Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced a 24GB Dominator triple-channel DDR3 memory kit designed for high-performance desktop and workstation computing applications.

Corsair’s 24GB Dominator DDR3 memory kit has been rigorously tested in high-performance platforms based on the Intel X58 motherboard chipset for Intel Core i7 [Bloomfield] processors. It comprises six 4GB DDR3 DIMMs that operate at a frequency of 1333MHz, at latency timings of 9-9-9-27, with 1.65V VDIMM. The 24GB Dominator memory kit also features Corsair’s patented DHX+ heatsink technology for optimal cooling and reliability. The modules, equipped with signature American Racing Blue heatsink fins, are found on select Corsair Dominator DDR3 memory for Intel Core i5 and Core i7 platforms in 8GB and 12GB kits.

“Corsair’s 24GB Dominator memory kit is perfect for high-performance computing applications, including computational research, HD digital content creation, working with multiple virtual machines, and other data-intensive applications,” said John Beekley, VP of Technical Marketing at Corsair. “The latest multi-core Intel and AMD CPUs, combined with sophisticated graphics processors from Nvidia and AMD, are capable of performing incredible workloads. Corsair’s 24GB Dominator memory kit enables the large number of concurrent threads and substantial datasets required by these applications.”

The Corsair 24GB Dominator DDR3 memory kit (part number CMD24GX3M6A1333C9) is available immediately from the Corsair Store.

I assume they were made for people going for the neon look in their cases.

Or someone with a similarly coloured DFI board...



... back on topic, and 24GB would be very nice for those that do very memory intensive stuff, for the rest of us - pointless. 8GB will be plenty for me come this time next year. I doubt I'll even need to go to 8GB.

If my board supported it I would have 24gigs of RAM. Photoshop loves RAM.

Currently it's only in use for Firefox cache:



If I had 10GB spare I would have COD4 installed on it (waiting for the ramdisk image to save and load every reboot would be so worth it, especially since I hardly ever do).

Sorry Wiz but thats only for CS. I use CS4

Photoshop Version Windows Version Manximum amount of RAM that Photoshop can use
32-bit 32-bit 1.7 GB
32-bit 64-bit 3.2 GB
64-bit 64-bit as much RAM as you can fit into your computer.

The primary advantage of using the 64-bit version is to access amounts of RAM beyond what Photoshop can access when the 32-bit version is run. You can take advantage of more than 4 GB of RAM only when you are on 64-bit Windows, using 64-bit Photoshop. If you use files large enough to need more than 4 GB of RAM, and you have enough RAM, all the processing you perform on your large images can be done in RAM, instead of swapping out to the hard disk.

This table lists the amount of RAM available to Photoshop with the different versions of Windows:

Photoshop Version Windows Version Manximum amount of RAM that Photoshop can use
32-bit 32-bit 1.7 GB
32-bit 64-bit 3.2 GB
64-bit 64-bit as much RAM as you can fit into your computer.

The default RAM allocation setting is 70%. This setting should be optimal for most users. To get the ideal RAM allocation setting for your system, change the RAM allocation in 5% increments and watch the performance of Photoshop in the Performance Monitor. You must quit and restart Photoshop after each change to see the change take effect.
Please dont beat me for correcting you...:cry:

'On systems with 3GB of RAM, this challenging test revealed no performance difference between 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, in both cases completing in 20mins 40secs. When we boosted the memory up to 8GB on the 64-bit machine and repeated the process it took... exactly the same time again. Clearly, the 32-bit RAM limit won't have much impact on photo-editing tasks for the foreseeable future.'
