Corsair Memory is a private, California-based company founded in 1994 that specializes in the design and distribution of an extensive range of devices and hardware.
Corsair’s first line of products was cache modules that aimed to achieve faster access times to the main memory sections of a computer. The company changed its focus to DRAM modules once Intel began to add L2 cache modules to its CPUs. From there the company expanded in the 2000s to USB flash drives and other solid-state drives as well as hardware cooling, computer cases, power supply units and most recently, gaming audio.
As for flash drives, Corsair’s storage capacity ranges from 4 GB to 128 GB. Optimized function and durability are primary features of its flash drives. Some models like the Flash Voyager and Voyager Mini are made to endure rugged conditions. The Flash Survivor, as its name suggests, is waterproof, anti-shock and engineered with aircraft-grade aluminum. The Padlock model features 256-bit data encryption to protect sensitive files.
Corsair has led the way for some industry innovations. These endeavors include: a JEDEC extension to simplify overclocking, a patent for a microprocessor system for its Xpert DRAMs and a patent for dual path cooling of its memory and hardware for better performance.
Corsair employs more than 380 people and its revenue exceeds $325 million.
