Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB Series DDR4 Memory

Corsair's Dominator Platinum series has always sat the pinnacle of the company's memory offerings, delivering PC builders both a premium aesthetic and ultra-high-end performance levels. Now, as we move into 2019, the Dominator series has received a major refresh, bringing the series up to date with proper RGB lighting and speeds of up to 4800MHz. 

The Dominator Platinum series has always been about craftsmanship, with each entry in the series offering a unique yet timeless look. In the Corsair lineup, the Dominator series also uses the most tightly screened memory chips in their product stack, ensuring high frequencies out of the box and plenty of overclocking headroom. When combined with a limited lifetime warranty, the Dominator series offers very little to complain about, assuming that you can afford to purchase premium DIMMs. 

At CES 2019 Corsair showcased their new Dominator series DIMMs for the first time, bringing into the mix addressable CAPELLIX RGB LEDs. Corsair's use of Capellix RGB LEDs is perhaps their biggest innovation of the show, shrinking their RGB LEDs from 2.8mm down to 0.2mm while offering up to 60% more brightness, 40% lower power consumption and up to a 35% longer lifespan. What's not to like about these new LEDs? You should expect to hear more about Corsair's Capellix LEDs throughout 2019. 

The power efficiency of Corsair's Capellix LEDs and their small form factor allows Corsair to offer twelve lighting zones on each of their Dominator Platinum RGB DIMMs, all while consuming relatively little power. This is what enables Corsair to offer addressable RGB support as well as speeds of up to 4800MHz, which is no small feat. 

Below is a small example of what Corsair's Dominator Platinum RGB memory modules are capable of, creating a reasonably accurate interpretation of the US flag over 96 addressable LEDs (12 LEDs per module). Corsair also boasts support for both AMD and Intel DDR4 motherboard platforms.

Technical Specifications

Special edition memory technology often comes with a high asking price. Those higher build costs and extra features need to be paid for somehow, especially if support for iCUE and other software needs to be implemented. Thankfully, Corsair has made a wide enough range of Dominator Platinum kits that they should cover a wide range of price points, be it for a 2x8GB 3,000MHz kit or their larger 4x16GB or 4800MHz offerings. 

With the pricing that Corsair has given us, we know that the Dominator Platinum series will cover pricing levels that range from £149.99, for a 2x 8GB at 3,000MHz, to £1,434.99, for an 8x16GB kit that runs at 3,600MHz. More detailed pricing should be available on Corsair's website later today.

Seriously? Another version of the same old boring Dominator memory? Didn't these like die out already?...

Plus, those LEDs on these newer ones just looks so childish. The first thing I literally thought when I saw the image in the article was that the LEDs on the sticks looks just like those old/classic falling cube games, lol:
