Corsair presents the world’s first DDR4-4866 memory module
Perhaps the CAS 18 latency should be called the most impressive part of Crosair’s news about the new Vengeance LPX memory kit. This means that the company’s DDR4-4866 memory modules use the same timings as DDR4-3600, which of course means the need for a higher voltage and possibly a cooling fan.
This piece of hardware, model number CMK16GX4M2Z4866C18, went public today at online retailer Newegg for $860 and Corsair stores The US price is $950 and the UK price is £975. To reach such a frequency, a voltage not much higher than 1.5 volts is needed. If you think this is similar to the voltage that AMD uses, you’re absolutely right because Corser lists it as compatible with motherboards such as asus ROG Crosshair VIII Formula and MSI MEG X570 Godlike and MSI Prestige X570 Creation combined with Ryzen 3000 series processors.
Looking for something more compact and stylish? Using the same voltage, Corsair has boosted a pair of Vengeance RGB Pro memory modules to DDR4-4700 CAS 19 speed, which does not require a cooling fan, and you can enjoy the colorful lighting.
