Corsair Shows Off Its New Vengeance DDR4 Memory Kits For X99 and Z170 Motherboards


More DDR4 memory are starting to flood the market,mainly because you now have motherboards supporting DDR4 memory  modules. On a high end spectrum , you're witnessing manufacturers bundling memory kits into large capacities. The latest to buck this trend is Corsair with its new Vengeance line memory kits. These new kits will come in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities that will use 8GB and 16GB modules individually.

The highest memory capacity kit which is the Vengance LPX 128GB ( 8x16GB) has a 3000 MHz clock speed, and is strictly design for the Intel's X99 quad channel motherboards. It operates at 1.35V with CL ( cars latency) 16-18-18-36  timing. 

While the 32GB and 64GB kits are strictly design for the Intel's Z170 dual-channel motherboard. The Vengeance LPX 64GB (4x16) has a much faster clock speed at 3333MHz operating power at 1.35V with CL 16-18-18-36 timing.  The Vengeance LPX 32GB ( 4x 8GB) with an even faster clock speed at 3,600MHz power levels operating the same at 1.35V with CL 16-18-18-39 timing. 

These memory kits all include the Vengeance LPX heat spreader. With the 32GB and 64GB kits heat spreaders having a red and black color scheme. The 128GB kit on the other hand color scheme will be just be all black. The pricing for Corsair's new Vengeance DDR4 memory kit is a bit pricey but here goes, $349 for 32GB kit, $549 for 64GB kit and $1,174 for 128GB kit. 

Given the expensive price tag and seemingly an unlimited amount of memory storage, these memory kits are probably not for the average computer users unless you're a power user running 4D rendering apps and 3DS Max or partaking in extreme graphic intense gaming. But you know the old saying, you get what you pay for, massive GBs of memory that's astoundingly fast.

 


Key computer term: CAS Latency is the delay time between the moment a memory controller tells the memory module to access a particular memory column.
