Corsair Memory on Thursday introduced three new 128GB quad-channel DDR4 memory kits aimed at ultra-high-performance desktops and workstations. The new memory solutions offer server-class capacities with rather high clock-rates, but their prices are beyond the reach of 99 per cent of PC enthusiasts.
Corsair offers three 128GB quad-channel kits: two Dominator Platinum capable of operating at 2400MHz with CL14 16-16-31 timings as well as at 2666MHz with CL15 17-17-35 latency settings, and Vengeance LPX rated to run at 2400MHz with CL16 16-16-31. All modules require 1.2V voltages and come with XMP 2.0 serial presence detect profiles that automatically set up maximum clock-speeds on compatible platforms.
The Dominator Platinum modules utilize custom printed circuit boards and sport sophisticated DHX heat-spreaders with user-swappable colored “light pipes” for customizable LED lighting. The Vengeance LPX modules feature eight-layer PCBs and standard aluminium heatspreaders.
The 128GB quad-channel memory kits consist of eight 16GB modules based on Samsung’s 16Gb DDR4 DRAM devices. The modules are compatible with the Intel X99 platform and Core i7 “Haswell-E” or Xeon E5 v3 “Haswell-EP” processors.
Corsair officially positions its 128GB DDR4 memory kits for workstations used by content creators, who need “unprecedented amount of high-speed DDR4 SDRAM for memory-hungry applications.”
Corsair Dominator Platinum and Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory kits are available from Corsair.com and Corsair’s distributors and resellers. All Corsair memory is backed with a limited lifetime warranty. The price of the Dominator Platinum 128GB DDR4-2666 is $2119, the Dominator Platinum 128GB DDR4-2400 is priced at $1754.99, whereas the Vengeance LPX 128GB DDR4-2400 costs $1979.99.
