    Corsair Reveals “PC3500” Memory Modules

    Corsair Memory today announced their new XMS3500 memory modules for gamers and overclockers. The novelties are designed to work at 434MHz with CAS2 and provide peak theoretical memory bandwidth of up to 3.5GB/s. The 256MB module is marked as CMX256A-3500C2, while the 512MB one is marked as CMX512-3500C2.

    In order to make the modules work at 434MHz with CAS Latency factor 2, Corsair Memory had to change the formula that represents the other timings of the module. As a result, the new devices can be described as "2-4-4-8-1" (CAS Latency - RAS Precharge - RAS-to-CAS Delay - RAS Active to Precharge - Command Rate), while the previous products’ formula was 2-2-2-5-1. Frankly speaking, only the first and the last parameters can affect the performance, while the remaining are not very important in almost all the cases, hence, the speed of the modules will still be higher compared to the cheap devices with CL3 and so on.

    Corsair Memory utilises 6 to 8 layer PCBs, special shielding against noise, 30 micron gold plating of the DIMM contacts, eliminating of parasitic capacities and inductivities, for their modules. Nevertheless, the company only validates one PC3500 module per system, because there may be some problems with such modules when working in pairs due to the shortcomings of memory controllers. The XMS3500 modules are shipped with a pre-installed aluminium heat spreader, which is available in either a black or a platinum finish.

    It is quite strange, but the company performed their internal testing using VIA KT400 based mainboard with Athlon XP processors, while it would definitely be better and, maybe, a bit more useful to test them using the Pentium 4 based platform. The latter consumes more memory bandwidth, hence, it would have more performance gains from such memory.

    The XMS3500 memory modules are available immediately. According to PriceWatch, one 512MB module costs starting from $206, almost two times more than the cheapest PC2700 device.

    Bem, esses timings são mesmo BUÉ relaxados... mas tasse, se é a 1T e Cas2, então é sinal que com um pouco de mais voltagem vai tudo ao lugar! :D

    Agora a questão é, se eles não recomendam o uso aos pares, como é que eu as irei usar nas Granite Bay?

    já agora, sabem onde posso aprender mais sobre as configurações da RAM no BIOS? o que significam, quais as consequencias de mudar os valores, aumentar voltagem ou não etc.

    Ca está a Corsair a inovar mais uma vez e a retomar a liderança no que toca as memorias DDR mais rápidas do mercado, só é pena é o preço proibitivo ! :(

    infelizmente tens razão Tecno, o preço... grrr... mas lá terá que ser, os Rolls Royce também não são de borla!!! :P

    de acordo com as noticias na VR-zone:

    Estas memorias conseguem estes timings, a estas velocidades numa motherboard para AMD, ou seja, para Intel esperem algo mais tipo +10/15/20MHz de fsb, com os mesmos timings ou mais puxados... BRUTAL!!! :D
