Corsair Memory – 64GB Flash and Dominator GTs
Corsair Memory was at CES: Unveiled showing off their recently released 64GB Flash Voyager USB drive, but with a twist. It was shown running in a block of ice! You can really punish USB Flash drives and Corsair did a great job of showing that in the demonstration above.
The 64GB Corsair Flash Voyager GT runs for just $104 after a $40 mail-in-rebate on Newegg, which is low considering last year at CES 2008 we spotted a 32GB OCZ ATV USB Flash Drive for between $200-$250. With the surplus of NAND Flash chips and the faultering economy you can get double the amount of memory at less than half the cost of just a year ago.
The highlight of the Corsair booth was certainly the new Corsair Dominator GT memory kits that they had on display. These modules feature the same Dual-path Heat Xchange (DHX) heat spreaders that are found on other triple-channel kits, but with a new top heat sink that is red with a new fin design. Take a look at the current Corsair Dominator heat sink design to get a better idea of what the changes are. The Corsair kit on display didn’t have a label on it, but we were told that they were running at 2000MHz with 7-8-7-20 latencies at 1.65Volts. Corsair will also be launching kits at other speed grades like 1866MHz and lower as time moves ahead.
From the side of the modules we can see how much more surface area the new DOMINATOR GT heat sinks offer compared to the standard version. Corsair also informed us that we would be seeing TEC cooled memory kits in the very near future, so stay tuned for that.
Corsair also had a red Digital Storm system in there area that was pretty killer looking. The system was running Corsair Dominator memory, in case you were wondering or something.
