Corsair have taken the wraps off their fastest ever DDR4 kits with a set of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB Vengeance LPX kits. Designed for pushing Intel’s Skylake platform the new kits boast frequencies up to and beyond 3,000MHz and incorporate XMP 2.0 compatibility to make it more straight forward to reach those nice frequencies.
Not surprisingly the fastest kit is the Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4x8GB) kit which boasts a top frequency of 3,600MHz using CL18-19-19-39 timings. The 64GB (4x16GB) DDR4 kit is no slouch either, running up to 3,333MHz using CL16-18-18-36 timings. Lastly the 128GB (8x16GB) is capable of 3,000MHz with 16-18-18-36 timings.
Corsair is clearly aiming these DDR4 kits at enthusiasts and gamers who appreciate style as well as performance. According to Corsair:
Vengeance LPX DDR4 modules are compatibility-tested across 100 Series motherboards for reliably fast performance. There’s XMP 2.0 support for trouble-free automatic overclocking. And, they’re available in multiple colors to match your motherboard, your components, or just your style.
According to UK tech writers HEXUS , the 32GB kit will set you back just over $349 USD, while the 64GB kit will set you back $549. The 128GB kit may well have workstation builders drooling at the prospect of having so much high-performance memory at their disposal, but will they be deterred by the $1,750 buck price tag? Possibly not.
