Our friends at Corsair have passed along word that they will be releasing the world's fastest DDR2 and DDR1 this year at the CeBIT event. The press release in its entirety can be viewed here. The new DDR2 XMS2 is designed to run at PC2-8500 speeds! Or rather, DDR2-1066MHz while the new XMS modules are TWINX2048-4400PRO. The DDR1 kit will use Infineon C-rev RAM and is timed at CL3 with 1T command rate. At this time, the new DDR2-1066MHz is only available in 1GB (2 x 512MB) kits. We'll likely be receiving these modules at our testing labs soon, and will deliver our results shortly there after. More coverage to come from CeBIT 2006, which runs from March 9 to the 15th in Hannover, Germany.

Fremont, CA (March 6, 2006) – Corsair Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high performance memory, today launched the world’s fastest DDR2 and DDR1 memory solutions for the Intel and the AMD platforms. Rated at scorching fast 1066MHz, the new TWIN2X1024-8500 from Corsair delivers the highest memory frequency currently available to Intel users. Simultaneously, the new TWINX2048-4400PRO takes the lead with its rated 550MHz speed to unleash maximum performance on the AMD platform.
