    Corsair to produce memory optimised for ASUS

    Memory manufacturer Corsair has announced a partnership with ASUS in which they will produce "ASUS-Ready" memory for a new AMD64 SLI motherboard.

    The first product as part of this venture will be Corsair's XMS-3500LL PRO 2GiB product, which consists of two 1GiB sticks of RAM. They are tweaked to run best on ASUS' new A8N32-SLI Deluxe/WiFi boards, apparently.

    lol @ apparently

    I would like to see the people believing this will boost the world when realistically I think hardly anything will be gained. I'm talking about less than 1fps in games increase folks.

    Isn't there some ABIT Fatal1ty motherboard tweaked RAM out there somewhere too, or is my memory failing me?

    I love those Fatal1ty boards where all you pay extra for are MORE tiny fans that provide little cooling, more noise. Oh! and those "OC STrips" that help with overclocking apparently, and let's not forget them red LEDs!

    While i'm all for faster memory surely they can't make memory perform faster based on board manufacturer it would be chipset based. If that's the case they'll need to make the memory perform worse in other brands.

    It's all a bit silly, soon they'll be making different memory for all brands of motherboard just to get more money out of you...

    I believe this is a simple co-op agreement.

    However, the memory Corsair are making will of course work in all motherboards which support DDR1.

    They are just stating they have validated it within the high end spectrum on an ASUS

    Aren't ASUS boards reknowned for using ultra-silly timings when you set them to Turbo? Corsair probably just taught them how to program the bios to read the SPD properly.
