Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC hardware market, today announced Vengeance Extreme: World’s Fastest PC Memory Kits. The new Vengeance® Extreme 8GB dual-channel DDR3 memory kits are rated at 3000MHz. The Vengeance Extreme world’s Fastest PC Memory Kits will be a delight overclockers.
The Vengeance Extreme World’s fastest PC memory kits are fitted with low profile “racing red” heat spreaders. The new 2×4 GB memory kits operate at 3000MHz air-cooled, with latency settings of 12-14-14-36, at 1.65V. A Kingpin Cooling memory cooler is included for overclockers who want to use LN2 (liquid nitrogen) to reach memory speeds well beyond 3000MHz.
The extreme-speed 3000MHz rating is a rigorous internal four-stage hand-screening process performed by Corsair engineers. 1 in 50 memory ICs OR 0.5 percent of ICs pass the test. The Performance qualification is performed on select Intel® Z77 based motherboards, including the ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE and ASRock Z77 OC Formula. To hit their rated speeds, the modules require a 3rd Generation Intel Core™ unlocked processor (to rest the frequency to a higher number) with an Integrated Memory Controller capable of running 3000MHz.
This is what Thi La, Senior VP and GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair said, on the unveiling of Corsair Vengeance Extreme World’s fastest PC memory kits,
“We are focused on helping enthusiasts and overclockers push the boundaries of PC performance. Our engineering team’s hard work has led to new performance optimization techniques for memory, which we are pleased to debut in our new Vengeance Extreme memory“
