CES Technology Report

CES Technology Report

Carolyn Koh is in las Vegas attending the annual Consumer Electronics Show;. While she's there's she will be speaking with a number of MMORPG developers, but before her interviews start, she sends this report on some of the cool technology that she has seen.

Corsair was showing off their high performance DDR3 SDRAM sticks. These beauts are 240pin, heat generating behemoths. Look at the heat sink on the Corsair Dominators. These guys run PC3-14400, verified at 1800MHz at latencies of 7-7-7-20 at 2.0V VDIMM and come with a lifetime warranty. As a comparison, Corsair's highest rated DDR2 memory is 1250MHz at latencies of 5-5-5-18. (DDR3 is not backward compatible to DDR2 hardware. Although they both are 240pin, they are electrically incompatible and have a different key notch location.)

Corsair also had 32gig, USB 2.0 Flash Drives to show off. It wasn't that long ago that hard drives were 32gigs. That makes saved games and operating systems conveniently portable (not to mention video and music). The Flash Voyager is a rugged drive encased in durable water resistant rubber and Corsair boasts that it has been shown to continue working even after having gone through laundry cycles, baked and even run over by an SUV. They didn't mention if it was the same drive though.
