Corsair has just announced the production of its fastest ever DDR4 memory kit. The Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 RAM kit clocks in at 4600MHz, comprising two 8GB sticks of memory. It features Corsair’s token black heat spreader and has CL19-26-26-46 timings at 1.5V.
The Vengeance DDR4 module was created in partnership with ASRock and its X299 OC Formula motherboard, aimed firmly at those who want the best of the best, including Intel’s latest Core-X processors. At the moment it’s only available in a 16GB capacity so if you want to run Corsair Vengeance LPX at 32GB or more, Corsair recommends its marginally slower alternate memory kits.
Corsair isn't the first memory manufacturer to create DDR4 memory kits running at 4,600MHz, but they’re certainly a member of an elite crew along with G.Skill. G.Skill’s memory actually has slightly faster timings of 19-23-23-23 at 1.5V.
If you want to get your hands on the Corsair Vengeance LPX 4600MHz 16GB DDR4 then be warned you are going to have to pay through the nose for it. Available on September 21st, pricing has yet to be announced, but the slightly slower Vengeance 4500MHz kit will set you back an eye-watering $480.
