Fremont, CA (June 14, 2006) –Corsair® Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high performance memory, today announced that the new TWIN2X2048-6400C3 is the system memory behind three new overclocking world records in 3DMark06, 3DMark05 and 3DMark03.
Using the Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3 2GB kit rated at true low latencies of 3-4-4-9, Vince Lucido – also known as K|ngp|n, was able to make his mark on Futuremark’s Hall of Fame. K|ngp|n overclocked to set new world records, taking first place honors in 3DMark06, 3DMark05, and 3DMark03 with scores of 13358, 20684 and 52733 respectively. This extreme enthusiast achieved his lustrous fame by using a desktop configured with the AMD® Athlon™ 64 FX-62 processor chilled to -45c, NVIDIA® GeForce™ 7900GTX video cards in SLI configuration, Foxconn C51XEM2AA motherboard and the Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3 with Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) memory module kit.
