    Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today 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 incredible frequency of 2250MHz at low-latency timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.65V. They are designed specifically for performance enthusiasts and overclockers who want to achieve the highest performance possible and to break benchmark world records.

    "Corsair has a long history of delivering the fastest overclocking memory on the planet, and our engineering expertise and unique understanding of the enthusiast market allows us to continue to push boundaries," said Kevin Conley, VP of Engineering at Corsair. "Corsair Dominator GTX modules are the most tightly-screened, highest-quality and fastest DDR3 memory modules in the world, and we look forward to seeing what the enthusiast and overclocking community can do with these exciting new products."

    In addition to the incredible frequencies possible on Intel platforms, Dominator GTX modules have also been tested and verified to operate at up to 1800MHz CL6 in high-performance Socket AM3 motherboards for AMD Phenom II processors, providing AMD enthusiasts with a powerful new weapon in their overclocking arsenal. The following table shows baseline performance in a number of popular DDR3 platforms.

    Dominator GTX modules use Corsair's unique 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, which is also available from the Corsair Online Store (part number CMXAF2 GTL).

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

    Pretty nice. And I bet they'll have a pretty pricetag too with ram prices the way they are.

    Corsair wanted over $300 US(around $350 if i remember correctly) for 4GB of 6-6-6-18 1600mhz for AM3. As much as I wanted it when they offered it to me, I had to decline at that price.:cry:

    Now, these do 1800mhz 6-6-6-18?:eek:


    :twitch: YIKES!!! $400 or more, maybe? I need 8GB!!! Too much to ask, for me.



    Doesn't mean I don't drool over 'em though. I'd drop $250 on 4gb, no sweat, but not a penny more.

    Well it won't be long till we hit 3000Mhz memory. Too bad they don't keep the speed with more dimm's in use.

    Wonder what the price of the 2000Mhz GT's will cost after these hit the market.

    yeah I like the spreaders too. Nice speeds and timings but I expect this to be over 300 bucks US when it hits.

    Here's the product page for the ram I was refering to...I hoped onto the "notify" list(as it's not available anywhere but direct), and when I got on the list, there were no prices.

    So, they send you a "limited time offer, do not close webpage or you cannot buy...no re-loading the page" email....

    $350 USD for 6-6-6-18, 1600mhz.



    I really am expecting $400 USD, maybe over $500.


    Ugh. What horrid timing. Maybe next year. Dual 5970's...or these....hmmm....

    Seeing as ram doesn't affect games that much at all, I'd say go for dual 5970's....no contest ;)
