CORSAIR MEMORY COMPANY PROFILE



Corsair has many years of experience in qualifying high-performance memories, and has developed a knowledge base and track record which is among the best in the industry. Corsair also has strict standards for product qualification; any changes in design, bill-of-materials, and/or supplier, must be re-qualified prior to shipment to end customers. These high standards, while somewhat time consuming, have resulted in a very robust product, with extremely few failures, returns, or compatibility problems. Corsair's Compatibility Lab also tests our memory for compatibility with major system platforms, including motherboards from all the industry leaders. Our web site provides an up-to-date reference on which memory is the best fit for which motherboard. Careful memory qualification is required to help eliminate the uncertainty of the interactions between different components in a given computer system. Corsair has implemented a qualification procedure that is among the most stringent in the industry. While such a strong qualification procedure cannot eliminate risk entirely, it ensures that the parts are as robust as possible, and are suitable for today's mission-critical applications.

 

MEMORY INFORMATION


Corsair has a great online slide presentation which will brief you with all the information you need to make an educated memory purchase. Check out the in-depth presentation HERE.

 

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



With the introduction of the new Intel canterwood and springdale chipsets, dual channel DDR memory was instantly thrusted into the forefront as the fastest available DDR specification around. Essentially almost doubling the bandwidth was needed to feed the memory hungry 800Mhz Intel P4C processor with enough throughput to stop any possible bottleneck.



Being one of the premier performance memory manufacturers in the world, Corsair provided Tweaknews.net with a 1Gig sample of their representative TwinX PC3200LL PRO Dual Channel DDR memory to test. The version of the DDR400 standard boasts low latency timings of 2-6-3-2, but what really separates it from the pack is the inclusion of activity LEDs which would be a great addition to a windowed case. Although this memory is meant to be used in its stock speed, we wouldn't be called tweakers if we didn't try to see what extra free performance we could squeeze out of this unique purchase. As you will see later on in the review, I was able to push this memory to some nice speeds.
