Corsair have given the heads up that they plan to release a monster 4GB DDR3 memory kit next week at Computex which is rated to run at speeds of 2000MHz; this kit to appropriately fall into their DOMINATOR line-up.
The pre-release announcement doesn't mention if the kit comprises 4x1GB or 2x2GB modules, nor the timings of these modules, but I'm sure we'll find that out upon launch next week. Corsair do mention however that they have set a USD MSRP of $675 on the kit; certainly an improvement for DDR3 pricing, but there's still a long road to travel yet.
