Corsair has introduced its first 32 GB unbuffered DRAM modules along with 64 GB and 128 GB dual-channel memory kits for mainstream PC platforms based on AMD’s 400/500-series as well as Intel’s 300-series chipsets (and their successors). Besides, the company also unveiled its 256GB eight-channel kit for high-end desktop as well as extreme workstation processors.
Corsair’s Vengeance LPX DDR4 unbuffered memory modules are based on 16 Gb memory chips (from an unconfirmed vendor, though Corsair historically relies on devices from Samsung) as well as the company’s custom 10-layer PCB designed to ensure quality signaling when operating at higher clocks. Traditionally for this product family, Corsair’s 32 GB Vengeance LPX UDIMMs are equipped with black anodized aluminum heat spreaders.
Set to be available in kits containing one, two, four, or eight 32 GB unbuffered DIMMs, Corsair’s Vengeance LPX modules are rated for DDR4-2400 CL16 16-16-39 at 1.2 V, DDR4-2666 CL16 18-18-35 at 1.2 V, and DDR4-3000 CL16 20-20-38 at 1.35 V modes. It is noteworthy that the modules come with SPD programmed for DDR4-2133 CL15 mode, but since they feature XMP 2.0 profiles, setting correct speeds should be easy.

Corsair’s 32 GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 unbuffered memory modules as well as kits on their base are available today directly from Corsair and will shortly be available from the company’s partners. One 32 GB DDR4-2400/DDR4-2666 module is priced at $149.99/$154.99; but dual, quad, and eight-channel kits are naturally more expensive.
