Corsair Readying 16 GB 4-piece DDR2 Memory Kit

Memory (and power supply) specialist Corsair is dressing up a new 4-module DDR2-800 kit, consisting of four 4 GB modules (16 GB in all). Carrying the model number QUAD2X16GB-6400, this kit uses a new heatspreader design Corsair has been using lately. The modules are screened for high-reliability. At 800 MHz, this kit may seem like a late-Kate into the market, but might use its module density as a selling-point. Corsair seeks an estimated 83,000 Yen (US $867?) for this kit. We admit, the price looks on the higher side, but are awaiting clarity on May 16, when the company officially announces it.

A lot of people still running DRR2 that are going to want to upgrade, but I doubt for $800...

Though the people who will actually see a benefit from that much RAM are probably used to it by now.

Newegg had them in stock earlier this week. Save 228 by shopping at Newegg! :laugh:

Too bad no one has 2x4 setups yet. That would be the sweet way to go. 8gb too much for playing games? Who cares, I've got 2 sticks for 8gb! :laugh:
too bad its not 2 x 8gb sticks, it would have wonderful if it was and as stated in my board's specs by ECS I can load up freaking 32GB ram and a Phenom II @ 3 ghz and run a whole company's servers lol.

Could well be a company photoshopping or CAD drawing of the RAM. I do admit though it doesn't look like a very good label.
