It is possible to purchase a lot of RAM in and around a budget of $800. However, your thoughts might change with this. Corsair’s new 16GB (2x8GB) Vengeance LPX DDR4-4866 is the fast memory kit in the world. As a matter of FACT, it right now the only kit rated for DDR4-4866 in this universe (unless aliens have better!).
The challenge, as expected, would be the pricing. It charges $984.99 on its website, while Newegg has it listed for $859.99. It hardly matters because anyway, it’s a super costly kit. Maybe G.Skill will introduce something faster and costlier, maybe? Who knows!
Corsair displays every memory chip to gain validation in its Vengeance LPX line. However, only for this kit, we imagine the binning results yield comparatively fewer chips that hit 4,866MHz. This might as well contribute to the super high price.
The new product will most definitely work in any system. But it is designed keeping in mind the third-gen Ryzen systems.
At full power, timings on it are at a good 18-26-26-46. Those aren’t very structured in hindsight, maybe the C is at best. But who cares if you are able to hit 4,866MHz, right?
Corsair also has provided with fat that sits atop the RAM and provides direct cooling. This is nice as it helps to keep the temperature in control. Overheating could have otherwise been a major issue. However, the facility is optional but it is highly recommended to hit stunning frequencies.
This might be a big boost to the pro gamers, especially of the PewDiewPie variety. Also, companies who have gaming centers, they could well do with something like this. However, it’s unlikely the product will attract individual gamers, mainly because of its price and other cheaper alternatives.
