Corsair, one of the world’s leading suppliers of advanced PC components, this week introduced its all-new series of DDR3 memory modules, which combine advanced cooling systems, remarkable look, high clock-speeds as well as price that is lower compared to that of Dominator-series memory sticks that deliver top-notch performance, but cost huge amounts of money.

Vengeance Pro series memory modules are built with eight-layer printed-circuit boards and RAM ICs specially selected for speed and overclocking headroom, and like all Vengeance memory, incorporate XMP 1.3 profiles allow for automatic, reliable overclocking. The memory kits are designed with new aggressively styled, aluminum heat spreaders for superior cooling. The memory kits are available in black with silver, red, blue, or gold accents to enable enthusiasts, gamers, and modders to customize the look of their PCs.

Corsair Vengeance Pro will be available in multi-channel memory kits aiming different platforms. Initially, Vengeance Pro will be available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB kits and in 4GB and 8GB DDR3 modules. The new family will include various speed-bins, including 1600MHz, 1866MHz, 2133MHz, 2400MHz, 2666MHz, 2800MHz and 2933MHz (requires Intel Core i-series “Haswell” processor). For those, looking forward further overclocking of Vengeance Pro memory modules, Corsair also sells optional airflow fan designed for particular family of DDR3 memory.

During Computex, Jake Crimmins, technical marketing specialist for DRAM Corsair, demonstrated the fastest air-cooled production memory modules to date, the Vengeance Pro 8GB (2*4GB) 3200MHz memory with CAS latency 11 and timings of 11-14-14-36. The extremely fast memory kits reaffirm Corsair’s dedication to providing the highest performance memory for enthusiasts and overclockers. Availability will be announced at a later date.

Corsair Vengeance Pro Series DDR3 memory kits are available now from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. They are supplied with a limited lifetime warranty and are backed up by Corsair's customer service and technical support.

i don't think this RAM is useful in gaming pc's coz performance difference between 1333 mhz and 2400 mhz is less than 5-10% so it will be better to use 1600mhz with better gpu.

in gaming this ram only helps in integrated graphics and as mentioned this ram is for huswell, again no performance boost coz i7 4770k has HD4600 which is not so much dependent on memory frequency, yes AMD trinity gpu is more dependent on memory clock.

this ram is for those who have to work with memory intense applications.

10% you say?? Check again:

Actually from DDR3-2400 the performance gain is not worth the extra money, but anyways those test should be updated with the new sticks.

I'm curious about those 2600, 2800, 3000 and 3200 modules how they are doing with the lesser memories. Should be some interesting review if done.

This high frequency RAM and top mouted heatsinks are for the technically challeneged. As noted there is no tangible system performance gains with RAM frequencies above ~1333-1600 MHz. in real applications.

If you actually understand that DDR3 RAM running at 1600 MHz. isn't a system bottleneck then you know why faster RAM frequency doesn't produce any useful system performance increase. The only exception is with APUs that can use up to ~2133 MHz. to increase the GPU section of the APU. Other than that this over-priced high freq RAM is for the gulliable.

If by real applications you mean server based application, databases and such then agree. But in games, encoding, rendering or archiving software you're in for a surprise. Just for the sake of it I have tested this in several games, used first @1333 Mhz then at default 2133Mhz and went from 50fps to 74fps. (Far Cry 3). If that is not significant, than what is?
