Although the appearance design of Corsair’s flagship Dominator Platinum series has been finalized, the Vengeance series is different. After Corsair completely changed its style, it has been designing a new appearance for the Vengeance series, but what remains unchanged is that this series is all aluminum heat dissipation with a complete light guide strip.

And this Vengeance RGB DDR5 memory for mainstream gamers is designed using SK Hynix memory chips, ranging from 5200MHz CL40 to 6600MHz CL32, you can find suitable products whether you are looking for performance or not.

The version I got started this time is 2 16GB, XMP clock frequency 6400MHz, delay CL38, and the DDR5 memory is designed on the memory because of the PMIC, so the Vengeance series can not only be overclocked from Bios but also can be set in iCUE. XMP 3.0 profile, but this feature will not be launched until later this year, and players who have purchased Corsair memory will have to wait a little longer to use this feature.

This time, the Vengeance RGB DDR5 memory is in the radiator part. The aluminum heat sink with a larger area is designed this time. In addition to the consistent style of the Vengeance series, there is a triangle pattern on the memory, and the product label is printed on the side.

There are triangle totems on the cooling fins.
The model and specification can be seen on the sticker on the back of the memory.

In terms of lighting effect, since the two sides of the light bar are also relatively large, it can have a fuller visual effect when viewed obliquely, and 10 LED lamp beads are used inside so that the overall lighting effect can be presented more smoothly.

The iCUE software

In the Corsair peripheral control software iCUE, you can adjust the lighting effect, monitor the temperature, etc., and provide a variety of different effects in terms of lighting effects. You can also correct the memory position through the software, and the aforementioned Intel XMP 3.0 profile settings, this part It can’t be used yet. After the function is officially launched, players can make settings in the software.

Vengeance RGB DDR5 Memory Performance Test

The next step is the performance test. This time, the Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5 memory is tested on the Intel platform. The ROG Strix Z690-E motherboard is paired with the Intel i9-12900K. The test uses JEDEC 4800, XMP 6400 and manual Overclocked to 6600, a total of 3 clocks, tested 3 scenarios for players to refer to.

Under the parameters of XMP 6400 38-40-40-84 voltage 1.35V, the reading and writing of Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5 memory is measured as 96,084 MB/s, 86,026 MB/s, and the delay is 78.6 ns, while manual overclocking to 6600 38 -40-40-84 voltage Auto, the reading and writing can be increased to 99,579 MB/s, 89,227 MB/s, the delay is 75.9 ns, and the performance is improved by about 3.6%, but I haven’t tried it when overclocking. The parameters, perhaps the 6600 CL32 model with the highest clock speed in Vengeance RGB DDR5 memory, can have more overclocking space.
