Corsair Dominator GTs break 2533MHz DDR3

A shattering new world record from Corsair Labs


In an incredible attempt to top the world record for the highest achievable DDR3 speeds on the planet, the guys over at Corsair Labs have just achieved an outstanding speed of DDR3-2533MHz 7-8-7-20 yesterday, verified and validated by CPU-Z using 6GB triple-channel sticks of Corsair Dominator GT memory.

For the first time ever, these beastly frequencies have been achieved on the Nehalem platform using the upcoming Core i7 Extreme 975 processor (engineering sample) on the enthusiast favorite EVGA X58 SLI Classified motherboard. Most world record attempters usually opt for a single 1GB memory module to take on such a task. On this occasion, Corsair engineers were able to use all three 6GB (3 x 2GB) Dominator GT 2000MHz 7-8-7-20 TR3X6G2000C7GTF sticks with the Dominator Airflow Fan to shatter the world record for DDR3 memory frequency.

“When it comes to overclocking and memory, Corsair has proven—once again—that its engineering team truly is the best”, said Kevin Conley, Vice President of Engineering for Corsair, “As the new world record shows, Corsair’s modules are second-to-none in terms of performance, stability and quality.”

All Corsair Dominator GT modules are built with Dual-heat path eXchange (DHX+) heatsinks which are said to cool both the front and back of memory ICs as well as the PCBs. They are also removable, which allows for water cooling blocks or TEC hardware to be installed for extreme cooling measures.

“EVGA is thrilled to learn that Corsair was able to set a new world record memory frequency on our motherboard. Our goal was to create the best overclocking motherboard on the planet for Intel Core i7 processors and these results prove it,” said Joe Darwin, Director of Technical Marketing at EVGA. “When paired with Corsair’s ultra-high performance Dominator GT memory, we’ve not only met our goal, we’ve blown it away.”

For some reason or another, we are tempted to think that Corsair used cherry-picked ICs to pull off this feat, as is typical in world record attempts. Regardless, the power shown by these memory modules, combined with the right skills and cooling hardware, is definitely impressive in all aspects.
