Corsair Dominator GT Passes Intel’s XMP-Ready Certification
The qualification solidifies the company’s position as a leading supplier of high-end XMP qualified solutions for the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition, says Intel.
Fremont, Calif.-based Corsair, maker of high-performance computer and flash memory products, has announced that the 6GB Dominator GT 2000 MHz CAS 8 has passed Intel’s XMP-Ready certification for Core i7 Extreme Edition processors.
The 6 GB Dominator GT 2000MHz CAS 8 (TR3X6G2000C8GTF) is part of Corsair’s Dominator GT line of DDR3 memory for Core i7 platforms. It is qualified and guaranteed to run at a frequency of 2000 MHz with tight timings of 8-8-8-24 at a voltage of 1.65V. The platform used for the Intel qualification was an Asus P6T Deluxe.
“Corsair continues to push the memory speed envelope with the Dominator GT line,” says Jim Carlton, vice president of marketing at Corsair. “TR3X6G2000C8GTF is the highest performing DDR3 product currently offered through the Corsair reseller channel, and with its unique status as the fastest XMP-certified memory available, it is destined to become the high-performance memory of choice for enthusiasts using the Core i7 platform.”†
“Corsair has been a strong contributor to the effort to support the Intel XMP specification,” says Steve Peterson, director of chipset marketing for Intel’s Business Client Group. “This qualification is a landmark for Corsair, solidifying their position as a leading supplier of high-end XMP qualified solutions for the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition.”
All Corsair Dominator GT modules are built using the patent-pending DHX (Dual-path Heat eXchange) heatsink, which cools both the front and back of the memory ICs, and the printed circuit board, for greater reliability and increased overclocking flexibility. DHX modules also use removable heatsink fins, which allow for a range of Dominator GT cooling options, including the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H30 waterblock and Ice Series T30 thermo-electric cooler, which actively cools the modules up to 20∞C below ambient temperature for maximum overclockability.†
All Dominator GT products also ship with the Corsair Airflow fan as standard, which maximizes airflow over the module’s cooling fins, increasing heat dissipation to improve memory performance and reliability.
The Corsair TR3X6G2000C8GTF Dominator GT with Airflow fan is available immediately through Corsair’s world-wide authorized dealer channel and from Corsair’ Online Store, and is backed by a lifetime warranty and customer support via telephone, email, forum and the Tech Support Express helpdesk.
