If you have the money...

Solid State Drives are generally acknowledged as the most cost-effective single upgrade for a personal computer, since mechanical hard disk drives are the biggest bottleneck in most systems. But what is the next upgrade when you eliminate that bottleneck?

Many enthusiasts and overclockers are constantly trying to achieve the highest performance possible in their systems, whether they are trying to break a benchmark record or not. Corsair has designed its new Dominator GTX1 DDR3 memory modules specifically for this market.

Corsair Dominator GTX1 modules use DDR3 memory chips that are individually hand-screened and tested on multiple high-performance Intel P55 chipset platforms. Intel introduced its Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) with predefined and certified memory optimizations to make overclocking on computers using Intel chipsets easier for consumers.

Intel has certified the Dominator GTX1 at a frequency of 2333MHz, but they are also guaranteed by Corsair to operate at up to 2400MHz at timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. The modules use Corsair's patented DHX+ technology, which features specially designed  heatsinks and a custom-designed PCB that allows both the front and rear of the memory ICs and  the printed circuit board itself to be cooled.

“Building the fastest memory for extreme overclockers and enthusiasts requires considerable engineering expertise, combined with a unique understanding of the complexities of overclocking,” said Kevin Conley, VP of Engineering at Corsair. “Intel is one of the most meticulous and sophisticated technology companies in the world, and so achieving XMP-Ready certification at the astonishing frequency of 2333MHz once again clearly demonstrates Corsair’s performance leadership.”

Corsair Dominator GTX 2GB modules are available exclusively from Corsair’s online store for $200 each. Availability is extremely limited and is on a first come, first served basis only.
