Corsair has been making hardware for computers for a very long time. The company makes some of the most popular RAM kits for enthusiast and gaming machines around. Corsair also has a full line of SSDs, flash drives and other gear that computer fans really like.
About a week back I mentioned that Corsair had upped the speed on its Dominator GTX4 DDR3 RAM kit to 2533MHz with timings of 9-11-10-30 at 1.65V on the Intel Core i7 platform. That RAM kit is fast right out of the box, but Corsair wanted to prove it is fast for AMD systems too. The company has announced that it used that RAM kit to break a world record on AMD processors.
Corsair is one of the most popular companies for enthusiast and mainstream memory products for computers. The firm has been announcing blazing fast DDR3 RAM kits for Intel platforms recently in its Dominator GTX family.
Different kinds of geeks use different metrics to prove they are the baddest in the land. In car enthusiast circles the metrics compared include horsepower and quarter mile times. In the computer world geeks compare their prowess by touting how fast their rigs are in common benchmarks like 3DMark and PC Mark.
Corsair have unveiled their latest solid-state drives, the Corsair Force Series SSDs, each using the SandForce SF-1200 SSD Processor for up to 285 MB/sec read speeds and up to 275MB/sec write speeds. Available as the 100GB F100GB2 and the 200GB F200GB2, each is a 2.5-inch SATA-II drive.
Corsair have outed two new SSD ranges, the Reactor and Nova series. The Corsair Reactor drives, available in 60GB (up to 250MB/s read and 110MB/s write) and 120GB (up to 250MB/s read and 170MB/s write) capacities, while the Corsair Nova drives come in 64GB (up to 270MB/s read and 130MB/s write) and 128GB (up to 270MB/s read and 190MB/s write) capacities.
You might recall that last summer Corsair pulled the wraps off its first PC chassis called the Obsidian 800D. That case was an aluminum-clad beauty with a clear side window and hot-swap drive bays to make life easy for the computer enthusiast. Corsair is back with a new Obsidian model called the 700D.
