Corsair is no stranger to the world of premium, high-performance DDR3 RAM. Their Dominator line has long been the memory of choice for many PC enthusiasts and gamers alike, and now they are looking to cement their position in this market with a new GTX variant capable of operating at a staggering 2,250MHz
, with latencies of 8-8-8-24 and within the 1.65V threshold required by Core i5 and i7 systems.
The company achieved these numbers using a two-module configuration on an Intel P55 system. Going for a triple channel setup on an X58 system will involve stepping down the clock speed to 2,133MHz, which is still on par with some of the fastest modules in the market today. The Dominator GTX modules will also operate at up to 1800MHz with 6-6-6-18 latencies on Socket AM3 motherboards for AMD Phenom II processors.
They will feature a "unique DHX+ heatsink" with extra-tall cooling fins, and rather than being offered in kits, Corsair will sell these modules individually from its online store
starting next week. The company made no mention of pricing, but of course you can expect them to come with a hefty premium.
