Corsair, a worldwide leader in high performance computer and flash memory products, announced today that it is launching a full line of DDR3 performance memory products designed for Intel Core i7 processor.

Designed to take advantage of the Core i7 processor’s triple-channel memory controller, Corsair will offer memory solutions supporting three different DDR3 memory speeds in triple memory packs: 1333MHz, 1600MHz and 1866MHz. The 1866MHz Corsair DDR3 modules will be the world’s fastest Intel Core i7 solution. Each memory speed will feature kits of three 1 Gigabyte or 2 Gigabyte modules for a total of 3 Gigabyte or 6 Gigabyte kits. The 1600MHz and 1866MHz DDR3 memory kits will also feature the industry’s highest performance memory technology, Corsair’s patented Dual-Path Heat Exchange (DHX), for maximum performance and reliability. With six total products available, Corsair is launching the most comprehensive product line available for the Intel Core i7 processor.

Forgive me - But has not a recent review proven that using triple-channel memory is actually WORSE than dual channel on the majority of tests? (I forget URL)

The 1866 and 1333 kits operate at 9-9-9-24, with the 1600 kits at a possible 8-8-8-21. As for voltages, the 1333 modules operate at 1.6V, no word on the others.

1333 has worse latencies than the 1600 one? :confused:

Well I guess ones are enthusiast while the other is mainstream, but oh god what a difference...

yeah, they seem to rip us off in the UK.

Those latencies are bad, what happend to 7-7-7-20? Which is their current lowest.... im guessing its because of the voltage restriction?

i cant wait to see tests on these, i mean corsair three way channel ddr3 sounds sexy :toast:

Yes, the timings are loose due to voltage constraints, though I'm sure those 1866 MHz modules aren't doing 9-9-9-24 within Bloomfield's comfort zone. The only way today's manufacturers can achieve high frequencies while respecting voltage constraints is by loosening timings. Maybe when DRAM chip makers mange to shrink the fab-process of DRAM chips, they'll be able to achieve tight timings at low voltages.

IMHO lower latencies are much more desirable for i7 than high speeds, but those don't sell as well as high clock numbers.

hmmm, the lowest ive seen for three way channel ddr3 is the OCZ Platinum one, at 7-7-7-20, and its at 1333mhz suprised the XMS3 hasnt got these sort of latencies.

But as you said the 1600mhz one is probably at 8-8-8-21.... guess? or your pretty certain?? crossed fingers that its sumin like 7-7-7-20

grrrr corsair should be better than this.

ah never mind..

http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=10088&Itemid=1

These are the latencies etc etc.

Still bad and it shows that the 1600mhz 3gb and 6gb is at the lowest latencies at 8-8-8-24, ouch. Whilst the 18000mhz dominator and 1333mhz XMS3 are at 9-9-9-24.

Also, only the 1600mhz 3gb and 6gb have been added to their website... take a look;
http://www.corsairmemory.com/products/dominator.aspx

At 1.65v on the spot as well.

EDIT: I'm kinda suprised at why Corsair's XMS3 1333mhz isnt at 7-7-7-20 because OCZ has.
For some reason Corsair put the XMS3 1333mhz at 8-8-8-24 (if your thinking that lowering the speed will give better latencies)
