New additions to Corsair's Vengeance memory line-up

Corsair / RedShark NewsNew Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory

With recent entrants to its family of Vengeance DDR4 kits, it might be time to feed your workstation some Corsair memory. By Leo Waldock.

Corsair, the memory, SSD, case, liquid-cooling, mouse and keyboard company, has announced three additions to its extensive range of Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory in a choice of red or black.

The existing family of LPX kits range from 8GB to 128GB capacity and have speeds that start at 2400MHz and ramp up to a dizzying 4133MHz, so these kits stretch the envelope slightly, rather than breaking completely new ground.

Going big

The big news is a 128GB kit of DDR4-3000MHz, which comes in eight modules and, despite what we said a moment ago, is only available in black and not in red. Aimed squarely at Intel's X99 quad-channel platform, this kit supports the high end LGA2011 Core i7 5820K, 5930K and 5960X processors.

Sporting full XMP 2.0 support and running at 1.35V with CL16-18-18-36 low latency timings, the kit offers both the massive capacity and high-frequency DDR4 performance required by top-end work stations running the most demanding applications.

The 128GB kit has an SRP of £940 inc VAT and has already popped up on sale at £835 inc VAT.

More options

Also joining the Corsair DDR4 line-up are the new Vengeance LPX 64GB (4x16GB) 3,333MHz and Vengeance LPX 32GB (4x8GB) 3,600MHz kits, the highest frequency 64GB and 32GB DDR4 kits Corsair has ever produced. Both are optimized for Intel’s Z170 dual-channel platform (Core i7 and i5 Skylake) with the Vengeance LPX 64GB (4x16GB) 3,333MHz kit running at 1.35V with CL16-18-18-36 timings, while the Vengeance LPX 32GB (4x8GB) 3,600MHz kit runs at 1.35V with CL16-19-19-39 timings. The result is great looking, fully-matched memory, offering both high-capacity and high-frequencies. With XMP 2.0, a single BIOS setting is all that’s required to unlock their full performance potential.

The 64GB DDR4-3333MHz kit has an SRP of £505 inc VAT and is on sale at £445 inc VAT. The 32GB DDR4-3600MHz has an SRP of £315 inc VAT, but does not yet appear to be available in the UK.

All three new high-speed kits are clad in Corsair’s black Vengeance LPX heat spreader to improve thermal transfer, with the 64GB and 32GB kits also available with red heat spreaders. All three kits also include Corsair’s Vengeance Airflow cooling system, a removable 40mm fan cooling bracket fitted to each bank of DIMMs that provides reliable airflow to ensure modules remain cool and stable regardless of load.
