    Buffalo, known by the PC enthusiast community for their high-end FireStix series memory modules, is readying a new high-speed memory kit under the FireStix Inferno brand. The rated memory speed for these modules is at a blistering 1100 MHz (2200 MHz DDR) setting a speed standard of PC3-17600, a notch above the DDR3-2133 MHz kit on offer by Corsair.

    Buffalo will sell these modules in a dual-channel kit (model: FSI2200D3K-K2G), consisting of two modules. Each module has a capacity of 1 GB. They feature aluminum heatsinks for passive cooling. The modules are rated to hit clock speeds of 2200 MHz with DRAM timings of 9-9-9-24, at a voltage of 2.1V. The company has started shipping the kit today, widespread availability is expected by January.

    Love the spreader as it reminds me of Transcends Axe rams. Love the speed too. Looks like we will be seeing Dual Channel and Triple Channel kits for AMD and Intel respectively. Honestly I would have loved to see AMD do Triple Channel as well.

    Meh, the Corsair Dominator GT 2000MHz 7-8-7-20 kit looks much sexier than these. ;)

    those are for Core i7.

    they are talking about Core2

    how many mobos do you know that supports 2200MHz?

    wouldn't it be better 2000MHz cas7, just wondering...

    that's way to much voltage, and for i7 core doesn't suit at all

    yea, they do look like axeram and some corsair sticks. Buffalo running out of heatspreader design ideas?

    I can see MrHydes point. The fact that not many motherboards can support the memory bandwith adds negative value to these modules. They should have focused on timmings, although they are great timmings for that bandwith at the moment.

    Im currently running at 8-8-8-24; 1600Mhz @ 1.65v and ive promised myself to never ever purchase ram modules with poorer timmings, regardless of bandwith speed. My fingers are crossed.

    I would like to see side by side bandwidth testing between the Buffalo and Corsair to see which matters most: speed or latency.

    I think its a matter of the application in use.

    Its not very often someone is going to max out their memory bandwith, whereas the latency is something that gets thrashed.

    It isn't made for i7 anyway. And the highest speed that i've seen that ddr3 mobos support was 2066 or 2100.
