CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX Memory Breaks 5000MHz Barrier on AMD Ryzen Processors

CORSAIR, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced a new kit of its award-winning CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX DDR4 Memory, becoming the first commercially available high-frequency DRAM to break the 5,000 MHz barrier. This record-setting Micron-based memory is available now in a 2x 8 GB kit, reaching its full potential in select MSI X570 motherboards running 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors.

VENGEANCE LPX once again sets a new milestone in the world of performance memory, continuing to deliver on its long-standing tradition of excellence thanks to the partnership between CORSAIR, MSI, and AMD. The new modules have been specifically designed and fully tested to achieve their record-breaking maximum frequency of 5,000 MHz on the Ryzen 3000 platform in MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE, MSI MEG X570 ACE, MSI MEG X570 UNIFY, and PRESTIGE X570 CREATION motherboards using their included automated overclocking utilities.
An included optional VENGEANCE Airflow Fan directly cools the memory modules to ensure their high-frequency performance even when running at the most demanding settings.

"Pushing the limits of performance DRAM is a constant focus for us," said Reimar Goetze, Senior Manager of Memory Products at CORSAIR. "With the help of key partners such as MSI and AMD, we are thrilled to stay at the forefront of the industry with another record-setting launch."

"This impressive feat is only made possible with the highest quality components, such as our latest X570 motherboards and VENGEANCE LPX memory," said Ted Hung of MSI, Computing and Display Business Unit General Manager. "We are always driven to break the barriers of what is possible, and CORSAIR has proven to be a great partner in helping us achieve that."

With DDR4-5000 MHz now within reach for consumers everywhere, CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX is the leading choice for builders of today's most powerful custom PCs.

Now we just need SOC and IF to handle 2500MHz

Did anyone else see the price for a 2 x 8gb kit? 1224 USD

A kit or this kit? At least they could have included the basis spec in the press release. Is it just a 4400 kit that they ran CL24 socked in liquid N2? Anyway completely useless/overpriced (in lack of a better term) for real world perfomance if it can't run 3900 MHz at CL14 for that price.

FYI, in CAD i could easily build a super fast rig for that price :P

I did check the .com adress this morning, it was down. Its running now but apparently you have to head for the Canadian version to get the up-to-date information. Thank you.

Ah yes, of course Corsair needed to restore the idea that Vengeance LPX was utter shit on Ryzen most of the time until recently.

But how does this help us for the normally priced sticks now?

I guess if you wanted 32GB or more, you'd want to be taking out a mortgage with Corsair.

dont whant to set it"'
Good for them!. Soon to be launched , the 5GHz Intel chip and now this? Either way at that speed , with IF untied (1250MHz) should "fly" unstresed come to think of it , the IF that is.

OMGo_O. That price is horrible. And I thought the G.Skill Trident Z Neo 3600 C14 I am waiting for whas expensive. The price on these ram is from like another world.

These modules will still be mobo dependent, (looking at GA for their pickiness)

That price is more than 128GB of Corsair 3200MHZ RAM.....priceless

What a strange thing to make for a system that bennefits from lower speeds.

Ryzen benefits from faster speeds. 3600MHz is the sweet spot IIRC.

ok fine 1200$, but what it realy gives the speed ?

Depends 3200mhz c14 also performed similarly and often can be found cheaper.

DDR4 was a very small performance gain over DDR3. I'm waiting for DDR5 to upgrade my DDR3 PC. Any idea how much we have to wait for DDR5?

Enterprise ddr5 is expected to start switching over in 2020, so I'd guess 2022 for consumers

So it's not anytime soon. tech progress is getting so slow these days.

I bought DDR3 2400MHz CL11 six years ago which was cheap and popular in 2013. now after six years you can buy DDR4 3200MHz CL16 at around the same price. the big problem is DDR4 3200 at CL16 in 2019 is not noticeably faster than DDR3 2400 at CL11 from six years ago. that's mind boggling how slow PC tech industry is moving these days. you may not be old enough to remember the good old days when computer performance was doubling every one or two years. once I bought a PC in 2002 and six years later in 2008 when I upgraded my PC, I remember it was nearly one hundred times faster than my old PC in gaming performance!!! the same story can be told about most other techs like gaming consoles, smartphones or even automobile and aircraft. I think we are hitting a wall in terms of tech progression.

Let me guess, higher binned Micron E which can be found in ~$120-200 kits.
The main problem is that most CPUs won't run at 5000. I'm able to set 4800-4866 stable on multiple Micron or Hynix kits but only on one CPU (tested multiple 3600, 3600X and 3700X) I was able to pass 4933+ and it wasn't even stable. The only 5000+ results that I've seen around the web were made using 3900X.
