Corsair Launches Triple Pack Memory For Core i7

Corsair Launches Triple Pack Memory modules for Intel® Core™ i7 processors

New High Speed DDR3 Memory is Optimized for Intel® Core™ i7Triple-Channel Memory Controller  

Fremont, CA, October 21st, 2008 – Corsair, a worldwide leader in high performance computer and flash memory products, announced today that it is launching a full line of DDR3 performance memory products designed for Intel® Core™ i7 processor.

Designed to take advantage of the Core i7 processor’s triple-channel memory controller, Corsair will offer memory solutions supporting three different DDR3 memory speeds in triple memory packs: 1333MHz, 1600MHz and 1866MHz. The 1866MHz Corsair DDR3 modules will be the world’s fastest Intel® Core™ i7 solution. Each memory speed will feature kits of three 1 Gigabyte or 2 Gigabyte modules for a total of 3 Gigabyte or 6 Gigabyte kits.   The 1600MHz and 1866MHz DDR3 memory kits will also feature the industry’s highest performance memory technology, Corsair’s patented Dual-Path Heat Exchange (DHX), for maximum performance and reliability. With six total products available, Corsair is launching the most comprehensive product line available for the Intel® Core™ i7 processor.

“Corsair is famous for producing cutting-edge products for new platforms,” said Martin Mueller, Senior Director of Engineering at Corsair. “With the Core i7 processor’s new triple-channel memory controller, memory bandwidth is more important than ever, and Corsair goes above and beyond the minimum requirements and delivers real performance gains with a wide range of products.”

Corsair’s DDR3-1333 part is available immediately in both 3x1GB and 3x2GB densities. With today’s modern programs utilizing more memory than ever before, Corsair recommends 6GB for optimum performance on the Intel® Core™ i7 platform. Next to launch will be the Dominator DDR3-1600MHz kit, with the DDR3-1866MHz kits to follow just before the official launch of the Intel® Core™ i7 processor.

Expected US MSRP

TR3X6G1866C9DF       6GB Kit 1866MHz DOMINATOR with Airflow fan        $475

Is it just me, or is it weird to see kits that aren't powers of 2?

I guess it's due to performance not depending on dual channels... but still... weird....

The i7 cpus have triple channel so expect to see this as the new norm with DDR3.

Ahhh... makes sense.

 I was wondering when this stuff was going to start hitting. I am surprised to see the 1866mhz speeds though. I would have thought they would have gone with the 1333,1600 and 1800 or 2000 like current ddr3 modules are now. Still 3GB of 1600mhz ram for $175 is a pretty darn good price bracket imo. Hopefully others will hit around the same ball park or even cheaper.

Yeah DDR3 is coming down in price quick. Which is good news for me because the one thing I wanna add to my rig is another couple of gigs.
