Corsair 2GB XMS PC4000 Platinum

by Rob Williams on October 31, 2005 in Miscellaneous

Corsairs back, and they have delivered the fastest memory we have ever tested! Clocked at DDR500 speeds and 3-4-4-8 timings, it’s quite fast on it’s own. Add on the large amount of overclocking headroom, and these modules have serious potential.

Lavalys EVEREST Ultimate Edition

Despite the fact that these graphs state that the modules were all run with 3-4-4-8 timings, please remember that the Crucial Ballistix is the only exception, being the 1GB kit, it is running with it’s CAS at 2.5. The Corsair modules with the impressive 284MHz overclock was able to reach 7,700MB Read speeds! This memory proved to be the fastest we have played with to date.

SiSoftware SANDRA 2005

In our SANDRA test, we only tested each kit at the stock speeds of PC4000 with their stock timings as well. Out of the 2GB models, it looks like the OCZ Gold takes the cake. If only those were able to be clocked higher, we may have seen some stiff competition.
