Corsair Announce First High Performance Mac Memory

Corsair, one of the major players in the memory market, today announced they are producing the first high performance upgrade memory modules made specifically for the Mac. The modules are tuned for low latency and are intended as upgrades for the new Macbook and Macbook Pro laptops. Corsair are claiming as much as a 28% overall system performance improvement in benchmarks with such apps as Photoshop, VMWare and Bootcamp (versus standard Mac upgrade memory). Now as we know, since Macs have used Intel chips they have much in common with PC equivalents, so it is hard to say if Corsair's memory is any different to high performance memory aimed at Windows based laptops. It is certainly the first to be marketed towards Mac users, at least that we have seen. The Corsair memory comes in 4GB kits with timings of 4-4-4-12 @ 667MHz and is available immediately for an MSRP of $159.99.
