Corsair Claims World Record for DDR3 Memory Frequency on Core i7 Platform


We're not sure what it is about Corsair and May 20, but on that same date last year, the memory maker set a world record for DDR3 memory frequency by pushing its Dominator kit to 2462MHz. Fast forward a year later, and on May 20, 2009, Corsair Labs announced it had coaxed 2533MHz out of a 6GB triple channel DDR3 Dominator GT kit, which the company says is the highest frequency ever achieved on a Core i7 platform using three modules.

"When it comes to overclocking and memory, Corsair has proven -- once again -- that its engineering team truly is the best," said Kevein Conley , Vice President of Engineering for Corsair. "As the new world record shows, Corsair's modules are second-to-none in terms of performance, stability, and quality."

To set the new mark, Corsair slapped a Dominator GT 2000C7 tri-channel kit into an Evga X58 3X Classified motherboard and ran fairly aggressive 7-8-7-20 timings. Other components included an Intel Core i7 Extreme 975 processor, GeForce 8800 GTS videocard, and a Corsair P256 SSD.
