If you’re working on upgrading your PC to maximum performance, you might want to pay attention to the latest component that Corsair just introduced. The company has debuted a new kit of its Vengeance LPX DDR memory, one that breaks a new threshold for PC performance. With its latest model, it can break the 5,000MHz barrier.
Based on the company’s notes, these new modules “have been specifically designed and fully tested to achieve their record-breaking maximum frequency of 5,000Mhz on the Ryzen 3000 platform.” These have been tested across the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE, the MSI MEG X570 UNIFY, and the PRESTIGE X570 CREATION motherboards, based on their automated overclocking utilities.
What’s more, the kit, also comes with an Airflow Fan. This will help the 2 8GB set-up stay cool.
“Pushing the limits of performance DRAM is a constant focus for us,” said Reimar Goetze, senior manager of Memory Products for Corsair. “With the help of key partners such as MSI and AMD, we are thrilled to stay at the forefront of the industry with another record-setting launch.”
“This impressive feat is only made possible with the highest quality components, such as our latest X570 motherboards and VENGEANCE LPX memory,” said Ted Hung of MSI. “We are always driven to break the barriers of what is possible, and CORSAIR has proven to be a great partner in helping us achieve that.”
