CORSAIR CORPORATE 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


Whether you are shopping for a performance computer based on the AMD or Intel processor, in both cases you will currently need dual channel memory. But, things will be evolving soon seeing Intel has adopted the new DDR2 specification. As for AMD, well, by doing a little research and a couple of phone calls, it looks like DCDDR400 will still remain the AMD standard for quite some time.



If you are going to hold off from purchasing a DDR2 based Intel system and settle with a Canterwood or Springdale based motherboard from Intel, or perhaps a Athlon64/XP nForce2(3) from AMD, you will be in the market for some excellent memory from a variety of manufacturers. When it comes down to any memory recommendation, Corsair is always one of the top choices when it comes to enthusiast computing. Corsair's higher standing in the enthusiast community is no urban legend or fluke. They make exceptionally high quality memory backed by a rock solid warranty, that is if you will ever need it. I know personally through the testing of numerous Corsair Memory kits here at Tweaknews I have NEVER had one single bad stick of Corsair memory grace my testbed. One drawback is that Corsair's memory is not the cheapest on the market but as the old saying goes "You get what you paid for.". You go the cheap route, you will be getting to know the three letter irritant "RMA" rather well.


Today I will be reviewing Corsair's latest PRO memory release, the TWINX1024-3200XLPRO Memory Kit. Boasted low latency timings of 2-5-2-2 and Corsair's patented activity LED heatspreader, if you are in the market for lowest latency memory with industry leading features, stay tuned..........
