Remember how I mentioned that AMD’s new socket FM2 boards designed by ASUS supported up to 32GB of RAM largely because 8GB DIMMs will be getting cheaper really soon? Well, Corsair has started off with one of the first 16GB dual-channel kits to be launched straight after Computex 2012.
Hit the jump for more details.
The new kits that Corsair launched today are 8GB matched modules from the same batch with the model # CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9. The modules run at DDR3-1600Mhz with CAS 9-9-9-24 latencies and a DRAM voltage of 1.5v. Corsair’s RAM modules have been very good overclockers of late and perform even better at their stock frequencies with tighter timings. The DIMMs are Intel XMP-certified and require you to enable the settings in the BIOS to get the advertised frequencies.
While many retailers haven’t put up theirs yet, Rebeltech will be selling the kit for R1855 as soon as stock arrives. If you’re impatient, you can grab two of the single 8GB DIMMs and land up about R100 cheaper – they are the M1A models which are older, but its still 8GB of RAM in a single stick.
