Corsair Announces Immediate Adoption of Enhanced Performance Profiles


A new open memory standard jointly developed by Corsair and NVIDIA, Corsair redefines the fundamental design of memory to elevate performance benefits

Corsair today announced immediate adoption of Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP). Jointly developed by Corsair and NVIDIA as a new open memory standard, Enhanced Performance Profiles elevate memory performance by taking advantage of the additional memory parameters that are now added to the unused portion of the JEDEC standard Serial Presence Detect (SPD). As a new open standard, immediate adoption by motherboard manufacturers and other memory manufacturers is expected.

"Corsair is excited to be the first one to introduce memory modules based on EPP. We believe this feature adds overclocking convenience and performance advantages to all users," said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair Memory. "With the introduction of EPP, we have essentially made overclocking a high-confidence endeavor for novice enthusiasts and at the same time have made our actual overclocked testing specifications available on-module," continued Beekley.

Traditional SPD values include only a basic set of JEDEC standard memory specifications. The new Enhanced Performance Profiles include many more critical specification values omitted from the standard SPD, such as command rate and memory voltage. This allows EPP memory modules to perform at their optimal profile as specified by the memory manufacturer, providing users with tested and approved overclocked performance while maintaining JEDEC compatibility.

To take full advantage of the Enhanced Performance Profiles, motherboards designed with a special BIOS can recognize the presence of EPP settings. Once these settings are enabled, the system boots directly into the memory's specified settings and takes immediate advantage of the increased performance.

EPP-based memory modules from Corsair support performance profiles that are based upon both high frequency and low latency optimization. Enhanced Performance Profiles brings simplified overclocking success for entry level enthusiasts, and access to more advanced memory specifications and a higher recovery point for hard-core overclockers.

The first products from Corsair with the new Enhanced Performance Profiles will be the SLI-certified TWIN2X2048-6400C4 and the TWIN2X2048-8500C5. These two gigabyte module pairs, running at 800MHz and 1066MHz respectively, are optimized to work with new motherboards based on the upcoming NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI media and communications processor (MCP), all of which will be available later this month. EPP is expected to be available on all upcoming XMS DDR2 products from Corsair.
