Mac Users Experience Up to 28% Performance Improvement

Using New Corsair Low Latency Tuned Memory
Fremont, CA, March 13, 2008 – Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, announced today the world’s first high performance memory modules made especially for the Mac. The new Corsair memory modules are the industry’s first low latency modules specifically tuned for the new MacBook and MacBook Pro laptop computers.

Memory bandwidth has a critical impact on the performance of many of the advanced computing applications used by Mac consumers. Corsair’s Mac Memory features special Serial Presence Detect (SPD) profile characteristics, so that Macs can self-configure for optimal performance for critical applications.

Corsair Mac Memory has been benchmark tested on:

· Adobe Photoshop: Import Video
· Adobe Photoshop: Photo Compression
· XBench: Memory Test
· VMware Fusion: Vista tests
· Apple BootCamp: Vista tests

Testing has demonstrated that as much as a 28% overall system performance improvement is achieved with the new Corsair low latency memory modules versus standard Mac upgrade memory.

“The Corsair brand is synonymous with high-performance PC memory modules,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Corporate Marketing at Corsair. “These Mac Memory SODIMMs featuring new SPD settings in conjunction with our high-quality standard chip screening process allows Corsair to offer the first ever enhanced performance laptop memory for Mac,” added Peterson.

Corsair low latency Mac memory modules are immediately available:

* VSA4GSDSKIT667C4 ~ $159.99 USD MSRP

Corsair’s low latency Mac modules are available through Corsair’s authorized distributors and resellers world-wide. Corsair memory products are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
