Corsair, the makers of high quality memory products have announced and released the fastest DDR3 memory for desktop computers, the Über Dominator GTX 8GB dual-channel DDR3. This new member of the Dominator® GT family of memory is built using hand-picked chips. A 4 stage testing process is used to hand-pick the best 5% of parts and combine them into this exclusive hardware. Used by overclockers to set records this is not everyday memory but true Über RAM. Better buckle up this is quick stuff.

Memory in a computer system is responsible for shuffling data and instructions from the memory to the CPU where the processing is done. With 19.2GB per channel bandwidth this RAM ensures your CPU will be constantly fed with data and instructions. To achieve 19.2Gb bandwidth the GTX runs at 2400MHz – the operating frequency or number of times it can read/write a second-, this memory is 50% quicker than the current standard for desktop memory DDR3-1600 which delivers sustained bandwidth of 12.8GB. While some desktop motherboards are capable of using DDR3-2000 –16GB bandwidth– the new Dominator memory is the next level again with 19.2 GB of bandwidth per channel, a total bandwidth of 38.4GB.
