Corsair's tri-channel DDR3-1333 memory kits are already available in 3GB and 6GB capacities, and the mainstream parts are relatively well-priced in terms of DDR3 solutions.

If the mainstream parts don't provide quite enough oomph, you'll be holding out for Corsair's high-end kits and they'll be hitting shelves just before Intel lets loose its Core i7 processors.

On the high-end front, Corsair will be rolling out 1,600MHz and 1,866MHz Dominator kits in 3GB and 6GB capacities. All four kits will feature Corsair’s patented Dual-Path Heat Exchange (DHX), and the blazing-fast 1,866MHz offerings will be armed with an additional Airflow fan.

We can expect all six of Corsair's launch solutions to be available in a matter of weeks, and the expected U.S. MSRP breaks down as follows:

TR3X6G1866C9DF 6GB Kit 1866MHz DOMINATOR with Airflow fan $475
TR3X3G1866C9DF 3GB Kit 1866MHz DOMINATOR with Airflow fan $250
TR3X6G1600C8D 6GB Kit 1600MHz DOMINATOR $300
TR3X3G1600C8D 3GB Kit 1600MHz DOMINATOR $175
TR3X6G1333C9 6GB Kit 1333MHz $230
TR3X3G1333C9 3GB Kit 1333MHz $120

Any word on the voltage requirements of these chips? Intel are still sticking to the 1.65v max are they not?
The prices for the high speed stuff are riduculous, but the lower speed stuff is reasonable imo.

$120 for 3GB is around £80 or something, which is what you pay for some good DDR2 4GB kits
