Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the production of a Dominator GTX 8GB dual-channel DDR3 kit guaranteed to operate at 2400MHz, with latency settings of 9-11-10-30, at a memory voltage of 1.65V.

The 2400MHz kits are the result of a painstaking four-stage component screening process which is passed by fewer than one in 20 memory ICs. Qualification is performed on an Intel P55 motherboard, using the same rigorous test cycle applied to the rest of Corsair’s Memory product line.

Yea, it better be some pretty serious memory for a price point of $499 USD!

Um, I think I will pass. LOL

Not more than a few years ago, that price would have been good!

What is the realistic read/write bandwidth at that speed and latency?

wow a new kit from corsair!!!!! wots the price OH never mind. ( <---no commas)

At least this lets us know they are coming out with a 999 2133 oh wait they have that nvm

Corsair overclocks well ill give them that but to what and why. They've been unexciting for a while now. I think every company is waiting for someone to drop the first trump card 7-7-7 2000 2x4 gig for something well priced before they make a move. Its been a poker game for the last 2 years with faster DDR on the way they are milking the HELL out of this. Problem is there is no Vista 2 or Crysis Super memory usage edition on the way to help :roll: The next windows will run on worse and the newest games run fast on cheap ass kits even with multi tasking + prices are so good atm.

Just get yourself a good 1866 kit that's already out a cheap one. Untill we see lower times these kits are just for pissing rights and interesting conversation. (useless) You know someone will buy it anyway i wish i had money to throw out the window (literally)

Hell running 2400mhz on DDR3 in a 4GB kit takes 9-10-9-27 or higher anyways. These are timed pretty darn close, and offer speed and performance with an 8GB kit. While I agree the pricing is a bit high, right now these are the only thing out like this at all;)

whats the real performance gain on memory OC? for in almost all cases memory speeds yield extremely marginal performance differences...

For the price / performance almost makes sense to upgrade every other component in the system before touching memory.

While not the best priced offering for that speed at those timeings, with 8GB's of memory it's a pretty impressive offering, and IMO the argument of "it's not a good value" is a bit of a farce, you always pay a premium for the bleeding edge of technology, only to be able to purchase the same thing or better for half the price a year down the road.
