Corsair: 2GHz Hi-Speed DDR3 RAM for NVIDIA 790i

New Family of NVIDIA SLI Specific DDR3 Modules Deliver Full Range of Enthusiast Memory Speeds

Fremont, CA, March 18, 2008 – Corsair®, a worldwide leader in enthusiast computer and flash memory products, announced today their NVIDIA 790i Ultra SLI high-performance DDR3 partner memory offerings, including a record-breaking 2GHz module.

After extensive partnership efforts between NVIDIA and Corsair, the NVIDIA 790i Ultra SLI platform was found to exhibit extreme overclocking capabilities with the latest in DDR3 memory architectures.  All Corsair SLI-ready partner memory is pre-loaded with EPP2, the latest in memory performance specifications.  EPP2 is designed to deliver an automatic memory performance boost for enthusiasts when used with the 790i Ultra SLI platform.

“Corsair and NVIDIA have worked closely on next-generation gaming platforms using the latest DDR3 memory technologies.  The EPP2 SPD memory specification, combined with the NVIDIA 790i Ultra SLI platform have allowed us to reach new overclocking performance levels from the 2GHz range and above,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Corporate Marketing at Corsair. “As the recognized leader in high-performance enthusiast memory, we are excited about this new line of NVIDIA SLI-Certified memory modules,” continued Peterson.

Available immediately through Corsair’s worldwide authorized dealer channel, consumers can choose from the following EPP2-enabled DDR3 product offerings:

Like other Corsair DDR2 products, DDR3 DOMINATOR and XMS3 DHX modules feature Corsair’s patent-pending DHX technology, an innovative quad-layer heat sink design that optimizes memory performance and reliability by maximizing thermal dissipation. With DHX Technology, heat is removed via two paths:  the leads of the BGA chips into the PCB (convective cooling) and the back of the BGA packages into the custom designed extruded aluminum heat sinks (conductive cooling).

All products are backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty complete with customer support via telephone, email, forum and TechSupport Xpress troubleshooting guide. For more information on Corsair products and technology, please visit

 i wonder what there timings are

ice91785 6 years ago

2GB? Pssshh...thats child's play at this point! Impressive speeds thought but as frg1 said -- I wonder if we are dealing with like 9-9-9-22 timings here to achieve such a frequency

they didnt say so figure its gonna be pretty high because if they got it low enough they would of annocened that to

Your intuition is correct ice, they do have relatively poor latency. The timings are as follows:


TW3X2G2000C8DFNV                8-8-8-24

TW3X2G1800C7DFNV                7-7-7-20

TW3X2G1600C7DHXNV              7-7-7-20

TW3X2G1600C9DHX                  9-9-9-24

thats the reason i prefer ddr2 over ddr3 that and they cost less

GAH! why didn't you warn me they were .pdf's? Lol

Thanks for the info none-the-less......Interesting how the 2Ghz model have lower timings than does the 1.6Ghz flavor....However I am sure when DDR3 becomes mainstream the timings will follow suit but I don't think its feasible to expect less than CAS-5 (thats pushing it even).

I know that ddr2 also put much less pressure on CAS and shifted a lot of it to TRAS (in terms of latency) -- does anyone happen to know if ddr3 again shifted gears ?
