On the last day of May (2012) we cheerfully reported on the existence of a super-fast memory line from Corsair, but the information supplied back then has turned out to be partially incorrect.
has built a new series of DRD3 RAM (random access memory), yes the line is very fast, but the speed rating provided back then seems to have been false.
The product collection we are talking about is known as Dominator Platinum and its clock frequency was supposed to reach as high as 3 GHz
The press release says the maximum is 2.8 GHz though (2,800 MHz), which is still quite high but, nevertheless, a totally different bag of chips.
We guess that the “super-overclockable DRAM ICs” could be driven beyond that mark by ambitious owners, especially considering the Intel XMP 1.3 profile support (easy performance tuning). Nevertheless, the fact remains that Dominator Platinum are DDR3-2800 or lower modules and kits rather than 3 GHz-rated products. To be more precise, there are twelve kits in the collection. Four of them have 8 GB capacities, six are 16 GB sets, one has 32 GB and the last one is a 64 GB kit. The four 8 GB kits are made up of two 4 GB modules each, functioning at 1,600 MHz, 1,866 MHz or 2,133 MHz. The 16 GB kits have either two 8 GB modules (1,600 / 1,800 MHz) or four 4 GB ones (1,866 MHz / 2,400 MHz / 2,666 MHz / 2,800 MHz). The 32 GB kit is made of four 8 GB modules working at 2,133 MHz each. Finally, the 64 GB offering, composed of eight 8 GB modules, is rated at 2,133 MHz. Prices were not disclosed, but online stores should list them all soon.
“The stunning new industrial design and customizable light bar makes Dominator Platinum even more special and distinctive, while the patented DHX cooling technology and hand-sorted DRAM ICs deliver the performance and overclockability that enthusiasts demand,” said Thi La, VP of the memory business unit at Corsair.
