Corsair has today announced the launch of its first Intel Core i7 memory solutions with two new additions to its XMS DDR3 product line:

  • TR3X6G1333C9 - a 6GB kit priced at around £209.99.
  • TR3X3G1333C9 - a 3GB kit priced at around £109.99.

Both support Nehalem's tri-channel architecture and consist of three matched DDR3 SDRAM DIMMs, with each module utilising Corsair's classic heat spreader. Corsair states that both solutions have been tested extensively in X58 motherboards and are verified to operate at speeds of 1,333MHz and latencies of 9-9-9-24.

If you're really eager to jump on the Core i7 bandwagon, both the 6GB and 3GB kits are already available to order from CCLonline - and they're currently priced at a tasty £183.35 and £96.77, respectively.

Am I that out of touch with the market prices that £183 squid for 6gig seems absolutely crazy for DDR3 ? :S

If I was a little bit more impulsive I'd be ordering now.
It does seem a little on the cheap side.. maybe this'll widen adoption of Core i7 and so bring prices a bit more mainstream!

I live in hope.
this is only 1333 thats why it is so cheap.
Scan have Corsair's 4GB 1333mhz kit for about £120. Add £60 for the third module and it looks like they're roughly in line with current pricing.

You'd be a mug to buy now, pricing should drop pretty sharply once more companies jump on the Nehalem bandwagon and manufacturing ramps up for the early adopters.
