If you think that the release date of platforms that support the newer PC memory standard, DDR2 SDRAM, was also the data when the evolution of ordinary DDR SDRAM ended, you are absolutely wrong. Yes, after DDR SDRAM modules conquered the 600MHz frequency barrier there was no sense in increasing the clock rate further since a majority of mainboards just cannot enable this memory frequency even at overclocking. And for those that can, it brings no practical performance bonuses.

Corsair XPERT Memory: Find Out What Your Memory Is Thinking!

Yet, platforms with DDR SDRAM are not at all hasty to give way to systems with DDR2 memory; for example, AMD is going to support the older memory type for one year more at least. That's why the manufacturers of advanced memory modules are still interested in perfecting their DDR products to entice more customers, and this perfection is now achieved not only through the dull increase of the frequency, but in rather more ingenious ways.

The PRO series of DDR DRAM modules from Corsair may be considered as the first advance in this direction. These modules (you can read our Corsair TwinX1024-4000PRO DDR500 Memory Review for more details about them) were equipped with an indicator made up of nine LEDs that would show the current load on the memory stick. Owners of transparent PC cases appreciated the innovation as they could have more dynamic indicators in their computers that resembled the bars of an equalizer.

Corsair didn't stop after the initial success, though, and is going to launch a new series of DDR SDRAM modules under the XPERT brand. These modules surpass their PRO series predecessors in a number of aspects and they now feature an additional LED-based character display that brings a lot of thrilling features to the good old memory module!
