Corsair Memory : The Gamer’s Choice

Corsair Memory, a private company headquartered in Fremont, California, was originally founded in 1994 under the name Corsair Micro systems. Originally a developer of Level 2 cache modules for OEMs, over time, Corsair decided to shift their primary focus towards high-capacity DRAM (dynamic random-access memory) modules. In 2002, the company began shipping their now-signature high performance memory products to serve the ‘overclocking’ market. Overclocking is a term for boosting computer components beyond what the manufacturer intended, resulting in greater processing power but an increased risk of crashing. In 2010 the company reincorporated itself in Delaware and changed their name to Corsair Components, Inc. With over $500 million in annual revenue, Corsair is a PC-gaming enthusiasts, home computer builders, and others who require high level memory performance.

Corsair’s range currently features DIMM (dual inline memory module) and the smaller SODIMM (small outline dual inline memory module) with varying levels of DDR (double data rate) technology. With DDR (currently available from level 1 to 4), twice as much data can be obtained from a memory system in the same amount of time. DDR Corsair has four families of desktop memory: Value Select, XMS, Vengeance, and Dominator Platinum in order of increasing power. In August of 2014, Corsair announced the availability of the Dominator Platinum DDR4 memory kits in speeds of 3300MHz, 3200MHz, and 3000MHz, creating the world’s fastest of its kind.
