NVIDIA Selects Corsair as its First Certified SLI Ready Memory
Corsair XMS2 DDR2 memory provides exceptional stability and performance to the NVIDIA SLI platform
Fremont, CA (Thursday, November 3, 2005) – Corsair(R) Memory, Inc., a worldwide leader in high performance memory and cooling products for enthusiasts and overclockers, today announced that it has became the first company in the memory category to receive the NVIDIA(R) SLI™ Ready certification. Recognized as the performance memory of choice for enthusiasts, Corsair added to the SLI Ready certification program by creating a new memory category to amplify user experience. NVIDIA SLI (Scalable Link Interface) technology supercharges the platforms by linking two graphics cards together to provide scalability and increased performance. In addition to motherboards, add-on cards and power supplies, Corsair's XMS2-5400C4 family of products bring additional performance edge to an Intel based SLI system.
"Corsair is recognized as the leader and innovator in the high-end memory space. Being the first to become SLI Ready certified on the Intel platform validates our reputation of making only quality products that deliver on the performance front," said John Beekley, Vice President of Applications Engineering at Corsair Memory. "NVIDIA SLI technology is the most widely adopted technology among gamers and enthusiasts. Extending our close relationship with NVIDIA, Corsair brings additional performance advantage to the SLI platform users with our blazing-fast DDR2 memory."
As a part of the SLI certification process, each component must pass stringent series of tests including diagnostics, benchmarking, burn in, and card interoperability. Only memory that delivers the highest stability and performance even under the most extreme condition will pass the certification.
