[HOT] : Corsair unveils its DDR5 memory

Corsair has just given us a first glimpse of its Vengeance DDR5 series of barrettes. If we can rinse our eyes, however, we remain on our hunger, the company is careful not to communicate the characteristics of the new series, such as frequencies or overclocking options. Certainly that information is going to be available once we get closer to the launch of Intel Alder Lake-S in the second half of October.

In addition to the Vengeance series, the most picky (but also the most fortunate) clearly expect at Corsair the Dominator series of DDR5 memories.

In some countries, it seems that Corsair has teamed up with Intel to deliver its memories with Alder Lake test samples intended for the press, presumably 4800 strips. However, the brand seems to have worked to have DDR5 6400 kits. . A few weeks ago, it confirmed the differences in bandwidth that we are entitled to expect with DDR5 compared to the current DDR4: DDR4 3200 would peak at 26 GB / s when DDR5 6400 would hit 51 GB / s. It will therefore be necessary to see if this is a speed reserved for the luxurious Dominator.

But Corsair had not stopped only on the speeds since the mark had also evoked capacities clearly on the rise. Thus, while we are limited to 32 GB strips for DDR4, 128 GB strips are being considered for DDR5…

The question of price, at least for 2021, should however dampen the enthusiasm of most of us. The other topic that interests the community is the heater of this new generation of Ram.
