Corsair rolls out 8GB DDR3 modules
by Slobodan Simic on05 October 2011
In both Vengeance and Value Select flavours
Corsair has launched two new 8GB DDR3 modules that will be a part of its Value Select and Vengeance series.
The Value Select 8GB DDR3 module will work at 1333MHz with 9-9-9-24 latencies at 1.5V, while the 8GB Vengeance one will be a bit faster at 1600MHz with 10-10-10-27 latencies at the same 1.5V. Both modules are backed by a lifetime warranty. Giovanni Sena, Director of Memory Products at Corsair noted that these 8GB modules will allow system integrators as well as gaming enthusiasts to easily break the 16GB barrier.
Unfortunately, the price of both modules haven't been announced but Newegg.com is listing the 8GB Vengeance one at US $269.99. The 8GB modules are quite rare and although there are some currently available on the market, Corsair's 8GB Vengeance is the first one that has broken the 1333MHz barrier.
