Corsair Announces New Flash Survivor GT Family of USB Drives

Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash
memory products, today announced the launch of its new Dominator GTX
ultra-high performance DDR3 memory modules for Intel and AMD
platforms, designed specifically for performance enthusiasts, gamers
and extreme overclockers.

Corsair Dominator GTX modules are
individually screened and tested on multiple high-performance Intel X58
and P55 chipset platforms to ensure that they operate at the incredible
frequency of 2250MHz at low-latency timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.65V. They
are designed specifically for performance enthusiasts and overclockers
who want to achieve the highest performance possible and to break
benchmark world records.

"Corsair has a long history of
delivering the fastest overclocking memory on the planet, and our
engineering expertise and unique understanding of the enthusiast market
allows us to continue to push boundaries," said Kevin Conley, VP of
Engineering at Corsair. "Corsair Dominator GTX modules are the most
tightly-screened, highest-quality and fastest DDR3 memory modules in
the world, and we look forward to seeing what the enthusiast and
overclocking community can do with these exciting new products."

addition to the incredible frequencies possible on Intel platforms,
Dominator GTX modules have also been tested and verified to operate at
up to 1800MHz CL6 in high-performance Socket AM3 motherboards for AMD
Phenom™ II processors, providing AMD enthusiasts with a powerful new
weapon in their overclocking arsenal. The following table shows
baseline performance in a number of popular DDR3 platforms.

1. Corsair GTX is screened and tested on Intel P55 "Lynnfield" platforms to meet DDR3-2250 8-8-8-24 specification
2. Performance characteristics by platform are based on performance and qualification tests on selected test configurations.
3. Baseline performance is not guaranteed on every motherboard brand and model of each platform.
4. Corsair GTX performance on Intel X58 chipset platforms presented in the table may not be typical.
5. Corsair Airflow is required to meet baseline performance on all platforms.

GTX modules use Corsair’s unique DHX+ heatsink and are supplied with
extra-tall cooling fins to maximize heat dissipation. The part number
for this module is CMGTX2, and it is sold as a single module, allowing
enthusiasts to purchase two modules for dual-channel configurations or
three modules for triple-channel configurations. For the highest
performance and frequency scaling, Corsair recommends using the GT
Airflow fan with tall mounting brackets, which is also available from
the Corsair Online Store (part number CMXAF2 GTL).

The CMGTX2 is
screened by hand, in multiple passes, by Corsair’s lab in Fremont,
California, and availability will be extremely limited. It will be
launched exclusively on the Corsair Online Store on December 8, 2009,
at 9AM Pacific Time, and will be sold on a first come first served
