Corsair Dominator GTX: Handpicked memory modules for overclockers
With the new Dominator GTX series Corsair wants to provide overclockers with handpicked memory modules. The promised specifications look quite promising.
Just recently Corsair introduced the new DDR3 memory module Dominator GTX for Intel and AMD systems. The new modules have been designed for extreme performance in gaming or overclocking setups. Corsair's Dominator GTX modules are handpicked and tested on Intel X58 and P55 chipset platforms to make sure that the requirements of 2250 MHz and short latencies of 8-8-8-24 at 1.65 volt are reached. Furthermore the chips are adjusted to meet the special demands of overclockers.
The Dominator GTX modules are said to reach the high frequencies not only on Intel systems but also get up to 1800 MHz at CL6 on AM3 platforms for AMD Phenom II processors. The chart below lists the nominal output on different DDR3 setups.
The Dominator GTX modules are equipped with Corsair's DHX+ cooling solution. Under the part number CMGTX2 the modules can also be bought separately, too. Thus it is possible to purchase either two modules for Dual Channel or three modules for Triple Channel. In order to provide as much power as possible, Corsair recommends using the GT Airflow fan.
The CMGTX2 is handpicked in the Corsair laboratory in Fremont, California, and only a limited amount will be delivered. The memory will be on sale exclusively at the Corsair Online Store from December 8, 2009 at 09:00 AM Pacific Time.
