Corsair Release high performance DDR4 Memory

 

We already know that the new DDR4 memory offerings do not cost an arm and a leg over current DDR3 memory, in fact the costs are very similar to comparable DDR3 memory kits.  Now Corsair have brought to market Dominator Platinum and Vengeance LPX memory using new DDR4 ram, with these modules offering speeds of 2666MHz and 2800MHz on both lines as well as great looking cooling solutions.

As we should already know, DDR4 will be first used by consumers on Intel's upcoming X99 Platform with Haswell-E CPUs. DDR4 will offer greater speeds than most DDR3 modules at a lower voltage/power requirement.

Corsair's DDR4 Dominator Platinums (left) and Vengeance LPX (Right) memory are pictured below

At present these Corsair ram modules are available for prices from £239.99 for a 4x4GB LPX kit clocked at 2666MHz to the more costly Dominator Platinum 4x4GB kit running at 2800MHz costing £400, which compared to a DDR3 Dominator Platinum 4x4GB kit at 2800MHz which costs £599.99 makes DDR4 seem like a bargain... ish.

As the release of Intel's X99 platform comes ever closer we expect even more DDR4 ram kits to become available, hopefully this will result in even more competitive pricing and availability for those who crave the latest and greatest PC tech.

Compared to DDR3 DIMMs of the same size, speed and quality the prices are the same or lower. But yeah, hopefully the prices can lower a lot more!

The X99 platform does not scream "budget friendly", so Corsair are releasing High performance/ high cost ram. Prices will decrease as it becomes more mainstream.Quote

Typical overcharging for new components, the price is rediculous of this stuff.

Looked on OCUK last night, and most of it is over £240 for 16Gb and to be honest I am glad I won't be going, for X99 till next year because by then the prices might be more realistic.Quote

Well I believe there are cheaper alternatives, wasnt there a thread with one a few days or so ago? I myself was actually set on upgrading to Haswell-e, but unfortunately just cannot bare to leave my 2600k Quote

I'll go DDR4 next year, no point in me making another Haswell based rig. Bring it on Intel.Quote

I have just been told my credit limit on card is being increased from October so I know I will have, enough to go for X99 in October but I am going to wait because of the prices of this ram.

I know heatspreaders etc cost money and a higher frequency of ram cost's abit more, but when Adata is going to release 16Gb DDR4 kit at around the £120 mark but Corsair and the rest, want nearly double that or more just for putting a heat spreader on it and it being slightly faster, it puts me off buying it.

I could sell my X79 setup to cover most of the cost but I still don't think it's worth it, because the manufacturers are over charging and also the retailers are going to add money on to the cost as well which just makes it foolish to buy, straight away in my oppinion.Quote

Its really not that expensive. Of course the dominator platinums are expensive, but they always were. In fact they are cheaper than their DDR3 counterparts. The Vengeance LPX is only 150 pounds for 8 GB (2x4). Again, thats cheaper than the DDR3 counterpart.Quote

OCUK pre orders, especially when they are the only retailer taking them, are always very pricey and tbf they usually sell out so why the hell shouldn't they be. And besides that it's difficult to comment on the price of a component when it's comparative performance is unknown. A nice quad channel 16GB kit of dominator platinum has always been over £200 so it doesn't seem out of the way to me.

I am disappointed to see only 16 gig kits are available. Really?? And trying to pre order this from Corsairs website is a total pain in the arse. Yes I know about non disclosure etc etc, but why put it up on the website if we can't order it? I am ready to do a Haswell E build the second I can get my hands of the proc, motherboard and ram. Got all the other stuff sitting here waiting, my good old E8500 build needs to be put out to pasture.Quote

Of course there are only 16 GB kits, because its meant to be used with X99. Who on X99 would want less?Quote

What I meant was why only 16 gig kits, instead of 32 gig kits or 64 gig kits?Quote

Well you could get two 16 gig kit for a total of 32. I guess bigger capacity sticks will be out soonish as well.Quote
