    Corsair today announced that it will launch a new 4GB DOMINATOR DDR3 memory kit running at 2000MHz at CompuTex 2008, held June 3-7, 2008 in Taipei. Tested and guaranteed for operation at the lightning fast overclocked speed of 2000MHz, this 4GB DOMINATOR kit provides superior performance for desktop platforms. “Corsair is focused on building the industry’s fastest memory available in the largest densities,” said Richard Hashim, Sr. Director of Marketing at Corsair.

    “This new ultra-fast DDR3 4GB DOMINATOR solution demonstrates Corsair’s commitment to lead the memory technology transition from DDR2 to DDR3 and from 2GB solutions to 4GB solutions. Enthusiasts worldwide demand it and we are happy to support their requirements.”

    The DOMINATOR family of memory represents the ultimate in performance technology engineering from Corsair. DOMINATOR is designed with the highest performing IC over-clocking capability and Corsair’s patented DHX cooling. DHX technology is an innovative quad-layer heat sink design that optimizes memory performance and reliability by maximizing thermal dissipation. With DHX Technology, heat is removed via two paths – the leads of the BGA chips into the PCB (conductive cooling) and the back of the BGA packages into the custom designed extruded aluminum heat sinks (convective cooling). This allows DOMINATOR modules to achieve industry leading overclocking performance while remaining stable and reliable.

    Gamers and enthusiasts know that there are significant performance benefits with 4GB of Corsair memory featuring DHX Technology. Corsair’s test findings, available at www.corsair.com/4GB, demonstrate these performance benefits so crucial to gamers, including faster frame rates, loading times, and task switching of up to eleven times faster.

    The new 4GB DOMINATOR DDR3 2000MHz memory kit will be available Q3 through Corsair’s authorized distributors, resellers and e-tailers worldwide, priced at $675.00 USD MSRP. Corsair’s DOMINATOR memory is backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty, complete with customer support via telephone, email, forum, and TechSupport Xpress helpdesk.

    4 GB? Isn't this the 1st RAM maker to offer this @ this speed?

    EDIT

    Can't find the timings anywhere :(

    very few boards would probably support this kind of RAM. But nice nevertheless.

    Yea you would need to be running at 500FSB on any of the Intel chipsets to hit 2000MHz memory using the higher divider of 2:1.

    But, since the are made to run @ 2000, the should run slower with better timings, right?

    Plus, if these overclock about 50% of what mine do (DDR2 800 CL4), all the more reason to go for these, no?

    $675 :wtf::twitch:

    Even when a board that fully supports it comes out, it'll still be less than half the price of this stuff. I'm sure this ram will cause all kinds of problems with current MBs. So I guess the price of admission is worth the headache, kinda :toast:

    Well even if their timings are like 9-9-9-20 or something it would still be more reactive than ddr2 800 at 4-4-4-12.

    Never had to use customer service because every high end module ive ever come across can take a beating almost to the point of death and still rock solid.

    I have had one bad high end stick and a couple of bad VS sticks. Now remember I use these for every system I build or upgrade and I do build/upgrade systems for businesses.

    Yup: i was referring to a 1st 4 GB kit @ 2000. To my knowledge, this is the 1st RAM maker to offer it.

    Wonder what chips they're using? Are these Micron D9s in a higher density (more chips per module) config or are these all new chips?

    Then what's the equvalent of D9s for DDR3?
