Corsair FB-DIMM kits hit 2GB and 4GB with new High-Density memory line for Mac Pros

Corsair FB-DIMM kits hit 2GB and 4GB with new High-Density memory line for Mac Pros

Both kits have two sticks each in them operating at 667MHz. You have your choice of 2x1GB sticks or 2x2GB sticks. The Memory is fully buffered and is 100% compatible with your Mac Pro and comes with a lifetime warranty.

So, all in one day Mac Pro users get a new graphics card option from NVIDIA, the best graphics card manufacturer there is on the planet, and a new memory upgrade option from Corsair, the best memory manufacturer on the planet. I’d say any Mac Pro user must be feeling extra important today, all things considered they are already using the best desktop computer there is on the planet.

Corsair also has a Mac notebook memory line as well, if you are a Mac Pro and a MacBook Pro owner looking to upgrade the RAM on both. These two kits however were tested at Apple’s laboratories in California to make sure everything works and is up to snuff, and they do work, the price isn’t bad either at $165 for the 2GB kit and $225 for the 4GB kit.

So I’ve had the 32GB Corsair Flash Survivor for a few days now which has been time enough for me to run some benchmarks on it and see how practical it is for every day use. I must say, I love it, I was copying some files to it for a friend, and I came to the realization that for once I didn’t have to worry about copying too much and filling up the flash drive mid copy as there is almost nothing I could copy to this drive that would fill it up.

So I got a package from FedEx today, inside was the Flash Survivor 32GB model, its new, and its hot, not literally though. Inside the package were the flash drive tube thingy, a USB extension cable, and a Corsair dog tag/chain that I chose to put the flash drive on along with the dog tag.

If the 2, 4, 8, and 16 gigabyte capacities weren’t large enough for you, you’ll be happy to know they’ve moved up on the binary scale to a new 32GB capacity. These flash drives are nearly impossible to destroy, they are element proof and have had all sorts of nasty things done to them in an effort to figure out just what the physical limits are.

Having storage to go is always convenient, and USB flash drives has proven to be very useful in transporting files. As flash drive capacities in the market gets bigger and cheaper, more people are relying on it as their “to go” storage.

Corsair Survivor gets put to the test

I've been intrigued by Corsair's Survivor GT Flash Drive since it came out a little while back. I currently have a Corsair Voyager which is plenty strong enough to stand up to what I throw at it, but the Survivor promises to stand up to just about anything. The guys over at EverythingUSB got their hands on one and decided to put it to the test; here's what they found.
