Interview: John Beekley of Corsair Memory

For the first interview of the month we bring you one of co-founders of Corsair Memory -- John Beekley. We have known John for nearly five years now and just recently interviewed him to get his perspectives on Corsair and the memory industry in general.

LR: Let's talk about the future of computer memory in 2006. It looks like we are going to see DDR3 and FB-DIMM's enter into the market space this year. Which should enthusiasts be more interested in?

John: I think that 2006 will be all about DDR2, actually. FBDIMM is a server technology, and will have no impact on the enthusiast in the one-to-two year future. And DDR3 in volume is a long way off, except in graphic applications. The most interesting memory-related events in 2006 for the enthusiast will be [1] the launch of DDR2 Athlons, and the impact on AMD's current reign as performance champion, and [2] the launch of more games and operating system revisions that require 2 GBytes of memory for optimal performance.

Interesting how watercooled memory was mentioned!!!
