Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5-6000, With A Decent CL36 Too

Source: TechPowerUp Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5-6000, With A Decent CL36 Too

Frequency Versus Timing

You can see some higher frequency kits below the byline but they have looser timings than the Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5-6000 CL36.  They also don’t have the same aesthetic, as these DIMMs would look quite nice in a system with a white motherboard.  The light spreader at the top will make the iCUE controlled RGBs sparkle, if Corsair can get it working properly, that is.

You can see in the synthetic tests like AIDA64, that higher bandwidth memory provides higher bandwidth; shocking, we know.  When you look at latency however, except for some expensive higher frequency kits with impressively low timings, the Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5-6000 is a better investment.  In gaming tests, it is also technically better, though by such a small margin it is hard to call it a win.

TechPowerUp were able to get some decent overclocking performance as well, even with a locked maximum voltage.  They reduced the DIMMs to CL34 and saw a wee boost in performance across the board.  For now, unless you have money to burn or a specific frequency you need your memory to run at, keep an eye on the timings and price of DDR5 kits as opposed to just grabbing the highest frequency DIMMs you can manage to afford.

Corsair Vengeance RGB brings a competitive DDR5 kit, with an XMP 6000 MT/s profile and modest timings of 36-36-36-76. Designed to fit right into the Corsair ecosystem, it is time to take a closer look and see what all the fuss is about!
