Corsair Adds 32 GB DDR4 Memory Modules to Vengeance LPX Lineup
Corsair’s Low Profile 32 GB DIMMs Offer More RAM Than You Will Ever Need (Until the Next Capacity Jump!)
Corsair recently took the wraps off of new Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory modules using 32 GB DIMMs to achieve kits ranging from 32 GB to 256 GB to bring even more main memory than previously possible on consumer platforms. The new kits come clad in black with yellow accents and in a low-profile design that, at least in theory, does not interfere with larger air coolers or cases in small form factor (SFF) systems.
The new Vengeance LPX modules will be available in three speed tiers of 2400 MHz, 2666 MHz, and 3000 MHz and kits will be available with 1, 2, 4, or 8 sticks with the highest speed tier being limited to up to 2 sticks per kit. Corsair rates the new Vengeance LPX 32 GB modules at 16-16-16-39 and 1.2 V when clocked at 2400 MHz, 16-20-20-38 using 1.35 V when running at 2666 MHz, and 16-18-18-35 timings and 1.35 V at 3,000 MHz.
The memory modules are covered by a limited lifetime warranty. As far as pricing, it is available on certain SKUs but not others. A quick rundown on the prices available include:
- 32 GB DDR4 2400 (1 x 32GB) @ $149.99
- 32 GB DDR4 2666 (1 x 32GB) @ $154.99
- 64 GB DDR4 2400 (2 x 32GB) @ $299.99
- 64 GB DDR4 2666 (2 x 32GB) @ $304.99
- 128 GB DDR4 2400 (4 x 32GB) @ $599.99
- 128 GB DDR4 2666 (4 x 32GB) @ $609.99
- 256 GB DDR4 2400 (8 x 32GB) @ $1199.99
Needless to say if you are wanting to max out your system (especially HEDT) it is going to cost you a small fortune and that’s just for the slower 2400 MHz memory. If you are running Threadripper or Ryzen 3000, be prepared to pay even more of a premium for faster modules!
"VENGEANCE LPX has long been a premiere choice for custom PC builders looking for high frequencies and ambitious overclocks, and that tradition continues with the launch of 32GB modules – the first time that such a capacity of premium DRAM has been made widely available to consumers in a standard size DDR4 module."
