Corsair Vengeance memories are one of many alternatives when looking for cheap modules at 4 GB and it is now time to take the next step. The Vengeance series has been extended to 8 GB, but not as hot otherwise.
The Vengeance series targets gamers, and largely the mainstream market. Its Vengeance memories hits the spot where Corsair is serisouly trying to ship modules with low margins in large volumes, instead of performance memories with high margins, tight timings and high prices. Now it’s 8 GB and the company starts with a sole model with not so tight specifications.
The new Corsair Vengeance module has the same look as before.
The new CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10 sport 8 GB capacity, 1600 MHz clock frequency, 10-10-10-27 timings and 1.5V operating voltage, which would enable 32 GB systems for enthusiasts and gamers. It is more of a possibility than building a 64 GB machine with Sandy Bridge-E at a reasonable price.
Corsair will also release the Corsair Value Select 8 GB that is part of the cheapest line. Specifications for it is 1600 MHz, 9-9-9-25 timings and 1.5V operating voltage. Both memories are shipping today, and should be in stores soon. Corsair will expand the selection of 8 GB modules with higher clock frequencies and specificationsin the future.
