Corsair releases Worlds Fastest Production 8GB PC Memory Kit
Corsair announced the production of a Dominator GTX 8GB dual-channel DDR3 kit guaranteed to operate at 2400MHz, with latency settings of 9-11-10-30, at a memory voltage of 1.65V.
The 2400MHz kits are the result of a painstaking four-stage component screening process which is passed by fewer than one in 20 memory ICs. Qualification is performed on an Intel P55 motherboard, using the same rigorous test cycle applied to the rest of Corsairs Memory product line.
The purpose of these kits is to help overclockers explore the limits of memory performance, said Giovanni Sena, Director of Memory Products at Corsair. They're the product of careful screening, selection, and testing, and we're eager to see what enthusiasts will do with them. As long as our customers are obsessed with making computers faster and more powerful, we'll continue producing extraordinary memory kits to help make that happen.?
The Dominator GTX 8GB 2400MHz kit comes complete with Corsair's patented DHX+ heatsink and an AirFlow 2 GTL Cooling Fan for exceptional thermal performance. It may be purchased from Corsair's webstore for $499 USD. Limited quantities are available.

Gigabyte A75M-UD2H Socket FM1 Micro-ATX Motherboard Photo's
And yet another pre-computex leak from Gigabyte, check out the Socket FM1 Micro-ATX Motherboard called Gigabyte A75M-UD2H. Aimed at the desktop PC / HTPC scene this little motherboard might work wonders.
The FM1 APU socket comes with a 4+1 phase VRM and has four DDR3 DIMM slots supporting dual-channel DDR3-1600 MHz memory. You'll spot a PCI-Express 2.0 x16, a PCI-E x16 that's electrical x4, and one each of PCI-E x1 and legacy PCI.
Output comes with D-Sub, DVI, HDMI 1.4a, and DisplayPort 1.2; 7.1 channel HD audio based on the Realtek ALC889A CODEC; four USB 3.0 ports. The mobo also has five sata 6G ports and RAID support.
The Gigabyte A75M-UD2H we expect will cost less then 100 EUR. Check 'r out.
ASUS ROG MATRIX GTX 580 photo's
There are some massive leaks going on over at ASUS, as it seems not one of their products that are to be announced have found a way to the web. We already mentioned that ASUS was working on a new ASUS ROG MATRIX graphics card.
Well, it's all over the web already, but some photo's and information have surfaced. Below you can see the Republic of Gamers (ROG) MATRIX GTX 580 graphics card. The card is powered by a large 19-phase VRM that draws power from two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors.
This beast is based on a triple slot cooling design (!) The card will come pr-overclocked (we may assume very high) and will allow to be voltage tweaked all the way. The card will come with 2 BIOSes, so should you mess one up ... you have a failsafe by pressing a button. Something interesting is on-the-fly fan RPM control, check the photo's for that.
From what we heard the clock frequencies of the card will be 816 MHz on the core, 1632 Mhz on the shader domain and 4008 MHz on memory. We are amazed by the fact that this card will not be a 3GB model, it packs 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory
Display connectivity includes two DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. There's no word on the availability. We'll be sure to catch it on camera over at Computex next week for some more detailed photo's.
