    Corsair, a worldwide leader in high performance computer products, has formally announced a range of XMS3 modules to complement Intel's Bearlake chipsets. The TWIN3X2048-1066C7 is a 2GB DDR3 kit of matched memory that operates at an effective 1066MHz with 7-7-7-21 timings, representing JEDEC-approved values. The TWIN3X2048-1333C9DHX sports even-faster speeds of 1333MHz with 9-9-9-27 timings. Corsair also expects to launch 1600MHz DDR3 memory modules in the coming months. Presumably, all Corsair DDR3 memory products will be backed by a lifetime warranty and complete customer support.

    Looks good. Low Voltage looks tasty.

    Out of sheer curiousity:
    Whats On die termination, data strobe and all that other crap?

    Dynamic on-die termination/differential data strobe - Both of these features are designed to keep the signal path as clean as possible during high-speed transfers. ODT, also available with DDR2, aims to terminate reflective signals from impacting upon signal integrity, but with DDR3 it's dynamic such that the impedance can be varied between two (preset) values.

    Are we starting to See DDR3 memory now, and the memory prices of DDR2 so low because 2008 is approaching. Is this the year DDR3 is gonna get really pushed?

    hmm I doubt it.
    I can see DDR2 lasting for at least the next 1-2 years.
    Most people will probably wait to make the leap until it gets its performance improved further.
    Or like me, until the price comes down.

    whats the point ... are there cpu's out to use these ddr3?

    my ddr2 800 doesnt get pushed til i overclock my fsb from 266 to 400 ... waste.

    Current CPUs can handle DDR3 afaik.

    aaaaah why bother with those timings... A good DDR2 kit can do 1066mhz @ cas 5!!!

    I am sure they will get better n better.... would be funny to see 2000mhz ram with a 1800mhz cpu!!!!! :roll:

    Yep, and as far as I'm concerned the best DDR2 has been the last few months, we're seeing all time low timings released. So I think DDR2 has a good couple 2-3 years left in it, I think DDR3 will be lacking for a while, but just like everything else, it will become fast. And by the time they get DDR3 about perfect, then we'll have brand new DDR4 or maybe a new type of RAMBUS...LoL the cycle never ends, it's not fair, but I do enjoy new technology!

    yeah....talk about an interesting combo. it's good to see ram approaching cpu speeds though. things like hypertransport and intel's csi (their version of hypertransport, coming out with nehlem) will really be able to take advantage of this faster speeds. It would be interesting to see cpus that only have a slight bottleneck because of ram latencies, unlike know, where the fsb and ram really don't let the cpu performing at it's best. also, these speeds will help give info to the new multi-core, multi-socket systems. the future of ram is looking bright.

    Haven't they been talking about DDR4 as well? I thought that was going start poping up in 2008 (not retail)?
