Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC hardware market, has launched its first India-specific memory module in XMS series. The memory module is available at a competitive price of Rs. 1,800. The 4GB memory module works on both Intel and AMD platforms. This module is designed for all DDR3 motherboards. Corsair's long term plan to introduce India-specific Corsair products at a competitive price has started with the launch of CMX4GX3M1A1600C11, a 4GB memory module in 1600 MHz frequency. This XMS3 is designed to fit in all DDR3 desktop motherboards. Featured with renowned XMS heat spreader, it works on all Intel and AMD platforms for faster processing. The brand that was once catered solely to the enthusiast crowd, unaffordable to most Indian users, can now upgrade their systems with XMS3 modules without having to spend much.
Corsair's new affordable line
M.A.Mannan, Country Manager India at Corsair Memory said, “India has always been a price-sensitive market and hence Corsair has had a slow growth due to its comparatively premium pricing. Now we have come up with a memory module especially for the Indian customers, XMS3. XMS3 has been designed without compromising the world wide quality standards of Corsair. Our partners will be very happy to offer quality product from Corsair to their customers at a far competitive rate”. The memory module will feature a heat-spreader in order to keep the temperature in check. This feature was once seen only in high-end memory modules, but it is now easily available in budget-series memory sticks. This also leaves some room for overclocking, in case you want to try your hand at it.
