Overclockers at Corsair Labs have reached a new record for DDR3 frequency. The CPU-Z validated speed of 2462 MHz was reached with a single stick of 1GB of Dominator memory, and was announced today. The 9-9-9-24 timed RAM was paired with a X48 chipset Asus P5E3 Premium motherboard, and a E8400 CPU running at 3.7 GHz.
While the consumer migration from DDR2 to DDR3 has been a little slower than some had expected, 2008 may be the year DDR3 takes off as speeds finally climb high enough to make some of the extra premium charged for DDR3 worth paying.
“This World Record demonstrates the overclocking and high speed memory expertise within Corsair Labs and definitely pushes the memory enthusiast community to achieve even faster, more outrageous speeds," said Corsair engineer, Martin Mueller.
The Dominator memory uses "DHX technology", which is a quad-layer heat sink design which helps keep the RAM cool.
