FREMONT, CA (January 30, 2007) – Corsair, a worldwide leader in high performance computer products, today unveiled production-ready 2GB DDR2-667 (PC5300) ValueSelect SODIMMs. Designed for current generation notebooks and mini-PCs, the new high density SODIMMs allow users to maximize memory bandwidth and minimize performance bottleneck to deliver superior user experience. The Corsair ValueSelect SODIMMs are optimized for Microsoft Windows Vista client operating system.
“Current notebooks typically support up to 4GB of system memory when using a 64-bit operating system but feature only two memory slots. With this limitation in mind, it means users have to use 2GB SODIMM modules in order to maximize memory capacity. Having more memory in the notebook is vital in delivering a faster system response time and a smoother user experience,” said Richard Hashim, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair. “For those looking to transition to Vista, the 2GB modules allows instant upgrade of current notebooks to be Vista Ready and delivers Vista premium experiences.”
The new ValueSelect 2GB SODIMMs are designed to meet the growing demand for high density SODIMMs for maximum system responsiveness. Individually tested and certified to run at 667MHz, the new SODIMM is compatible with current Intel Centrino Duo based notebooks.
