    Corsair, a worldwide supplier of high-performance PC components, today announced the launch of the Dominator GTX4, a new ultra-high-speed module with operation guaranteed up to 2533 MHz. These modules are available immediately, in limited quantity, from the Corsair Online Store.

    Producing modules that perform at these extraordinary speeds requires an extremely meticulous, manual screening process, and each module represents the fastest thirty-two RAMs out of literally thousands of candidates. Each RAM chip is individually screened and graded for performance. The top few percent are set aside for assembly onto GTX4 modules, the balance are returned to normal manufacturing. Modules are then carefully assembled using these premium ICs, and only the fastest make the GTX grade. For an inside look on how this screening is done, click here.

    “The GTX4 modules are truly Corsair’s greatest expression of the memory overclocker’s art,” stated Michal Nowicki, a.k.a. Bachus, master overclocker at Corsair. “These modules are so fast that most CPUs will require sub-ambient cooling to run them at their maximum speed. Each GTX4 module represents hours of my work in the lab, and is authenticated by me personally.”

    Each GTX4 module is hand-tested in the lab at 2533MHz with latency settings of 9-11-10-30 at 1.65V. The test platform consists of hand-selected Core i7 “Lynnfield” CPUs on Gigabyte P55 motherboards.

    The GTX4 is currently available on Corsair’s web store, at shop.corsair.com. Due to the intensive screening involved, availability of the GTX4 module is very limited. GTX4 modules are supplied with a limited lifetime warranty and are backed up by Corsair’s legendary customer service and technical support.

    Lifetime warranty still applies :eek:

    on another note, I still remember when CPUs were going at 400mhz... then 800mhz... then people kept on saying 1ghz is the limit we won't be able to break. now RAM is going more than 2.5x that speed :roll:

    i remember getting told 32MB of system ram was a waste of money. i laughed at them when i got a 128MB video card. Its just no fun picking on them nowadays.

    Eventually some other company will surpass them in Bandwidth and Latency, aka 6-7CAS at 2566 MHz.

    yea, honestly all these "fastest ram yet" products always have much higher latency. they get some 2000mhz at 6-6-6-18 and that'd more to talk about imo.

    Michal seems more like a marketing specialist than an engineer in his interview. Still, it's interesting to look over the interview and photos.

    325$ for 2 GB ram is really idiotic for me.

    So anyone who ever doubted the binning process, this is uber-binning.
