Corsair Offers the Ultimate Performance Components for Intel SandyBridge Platforms

Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced that it has developed a range of performance components that fully exploit the potential of the new Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor family, including the new LGA1155 Core i5 and Core i7 processors.

These components include the previously announced Corsair Vengeance DDR3 memory modules, which operate with a low VDIMM voltage of 1.5V, and include XMP-certified performance profiles for Core i5 and Core i7 processors. In addition, Corsair is also announcing the next-generation Performance 3 Series, a new range of solid-state drives, based on the Marvell 9174 controller and designed to take full advantage of the SATA 6Gbps (SATA Revision 3.0) support native to the new Intel chipsets.

“The new Intel 2nd Generation Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs offer enthusiasts great performance and overclocking flexibility, as well as a platform with new features such as SATA 6Gbp/s” said Thi La, VP and General Manager for Memory at Corsair. “As a key supplier of performance components to enthusiasts, Corsair is proud to announce a range of products designed to extract maximum performance from this exciting new platform, namely our full line of Vengeance memory modules and new Performance 3 SSDs.”

Building on the growing success of its award-winning solid-state drive products, including the Force Series and Nova Series SSDs, the new Performance Series 3 offers significantly increased read and write performance, as well as full support for the TRIM command and background garbage collection. Paired with a motherboard that includes native SATA 6Gbps support, such as those based on the Intel P67 and H67 chipsets for Intel SandyBridge CPUs, Corsair Performance Series 3 SSDs are able to achieve maximum read speeds of up to 480 MB/sec and write speeds of up to 320 MB/sec ensuring a huge boost in system responsiveness, compared to conventional hard disk drives.

Corsair’s award-winning range of CPU cooling products also offers compatibility with the new LGA1155 socket format used by the new Intel 2nd Generation Core Processors. These include the Air Series™ A50 and A70 heat-sink CPU coolers, and the Hydro Series H50 and H70, as well as the newly-announced H60 integrated liquid-cooling solutions.

Corsair Vengeance products are available now from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers in kits from 4GB to 16GB in capacity. Vengeance memory is supplied with a limited lifetime warranty and is backed up by Corsair's highly regarded customer service and technical support.

Performance 3 Series SSDs are expected to be available in late January 2011.

Corsair is really going all out to try and provide almost anything and everything, so far RAM, PSU's, USB flash drives, SSD's, CPU coolers, cases, headphones, speakers and I'm probably forgetting something.

I guess GPU coolers will be coming next and then probably sound cards, motherboards and graphics cards before they buy AMD so they can make CPU's and GPU's before they buy a country then move onto a continent and then the world... possibly after that selling corsair branded planets :roll:

But seriously i have corsair branded PSU, CPU cooler and RAM and the only thing i dislike about any of them is the price, if i was building a sandy bridge based setup i would happily consider them for RAM, PSU, CPU cooler and possibly even a SSD.

I would have loved to get corsair ram when I was switching to 2400mhz sticks, but their 2400 sticks were twice the cost per GB of the patriot versions with the exact same specs. Even if they overclocked an extra 20-40mhz that doesn't seem worth it.
