Corsair® Expands Dominator® Family with New Ultra-High Density 16GB and 24GB Memory Kits

– Unmatched combination of speed and density ushered in with 1600MHz modules –

FREMONT, California, April 6, 2010 — Corsair, a worldwide supplier of high performance computer and flash memory products, today announced new 16GB and 24GB Dominator DDR3 memory kits for workstation-level computers. These DRAM kits feature a clock speed of 1600 MHz and a CAS latency of nine cycles.

The introduction of these new kits expands Corsair’s worldwide award-winning Dominator memory family, providing an exciting new level of performance for data-intensive computing applications.

Corsair’s 24GB Dominator DDR3 memory kit has been rigorously qualified and tested in platforms based on the Intel X58 chip set. It is designed for use with three-channel CPUs such as the Core i7 980X processor. The 16GB Dominator DDR3 memory kit is designed for use on dual channel platforms based on the P55 chip set. Both module kits include Corsair’s patented DHX+ technology, and feature racing-blue highlights and fins.

“We continue to see increasing demand for high density solutions from programmers, scientists, videographers, and other data-intensive users,” stated John Beekley, VP of Technical Marketing at Corsair. “These new 1600MHz modules will enable a new level of processing speed for handling these large data sets.”

The 16GB and 24GB 1600MHz Dominator DDR3 memory kits are available immediately from the Corsair Store.

Again Corsair continues to push to envelope. Pair these bad boys up in triple channel with a i7 980X and a good stable motherboard, and you have a solid foundation.

The blue heatsinks look very nice. Other than that, these kits are very expensive! I just check the Corsair website and the 16gb kit is $999. A 16gb kit on Newegg costs under $800 for the G.skill stuff (depending on which model).

 

I wonder if they will launch an XMS kit because I don't think scientists need Dominators. Then again, I'm sure they can afford it.

Hey! I'm a videographer. If I had the money, 24 GB of their Dominator cards and a 980X i7 Processor, coupled with perhaps 2 5970's would be my choice of hardware. 

I don't think I'd be able to afford that though, especially considering I still need the HD Camera, which if I am going for the Professional series versions we're talking around $10,000. 

Yikes. Still though, Corsair continues to impress me beyond expectations. Everything they release makes me trust them that much more. It just seems like they know what they're doing.

WOW $10,000 Marius. Hope that camera works out great for your needs! These cards looks mad nice but the price is out of my price range...

$10,000 is pretty normal for Professional Cameras, you mainly see them in shows like Dirty Jobs and other Discovery Channel shows. 

My first camera will of course be a consumer-friendly one, so....$1,000 XD

Yes the price is steep but again "you got to pay to play". This is way overkill for the average home gamer but for a workstation as the article states this is the best money will buy for memory. Just pick up their 4GB DDR3 1600 for $168 free shipping and you are set, again this memory is for mainframe computers that need massive throughput.

LOL i went and Google professional camera and the first one that popped up was 12 grand xD

Well seeing as I already have 12GB of their Dominator-GT ram, I don't think this would help me much. Specially since the timing on the kit is 9-9-9.

Technically yes, but I was alluding to Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

I thought Y'all were talking about the Anti-Christ?LOL

Even though I cant speak, I was born 6-69 :P Although last time I checked I don't have the mark on the back of my head :)

That said, I love Corsair! They are a very solid manufacturer. They have always had reasonable/competitive prices as well.

These higher end units have been out of range for the people who actually need them. even though this would be great for games. I feel that they gouge the professionals only cause they can. That would be ok if SGI was still the leader for WStations. Yet when they try and cross markets. Please bring it down to more reasonable prices.

They can't bring the price down on Dominators. They have always been sold at a premium. Have to wait for their XMS series for lower prices. Or go with the G.skill kit I mentioned in an earlier post that costs a lot less.

Unless of course you sway the company to send you promotional kits at factory cost. Personally though I think it's worth the money and support, from what I've seen.

I was talking about retail costs. Getting promo kits doesn't count. Wink

 

I guess they could offer Dominators only because there aren't many kits out there to compete with. Therefore, they can charge a premium.

Do I hear a monopoly? 

Eh, probably not.

More like an oligopoly if anything else.

 

Haven't taken an econ class in years. I hope that was the right term. Wink
