Corsair MacBook RAM
Memory maker Corsair has released an unusual new RAM upgrade module, aimed exclusively at Mac owners. The company's new Mac Memory kit has been tuned explicitly for MacBooks and MacBook Pros, using a special SPD (serial presence detect) profile that Macs can exploit to self-configure for better performance. The memory has been tested in programs such as XBench, Photoshop and VMware Fusion, and is claimed to be as much as 28 percent faster than standard Mac upgrade memory.
The RAM is clocked at 667MHz, but is only available in a 4GB module at present. It is being sold at Corsair dealers worldwide for $160, under the part name VSA4GSDSKIT667C4.
