Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced a line of high-performance memory upgrade kits for power laptop users.

Operating at speeds of 1600 MHz and 1866 MHz, the new Vengeance laptop memory upgrade kits are an ideal solution for notebooks equipped with a 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor. Vengeance laptop memory is designed to be plug-and-play, with no BIOS adjustments needed to instantly take advantage of the faster memory speed.



The new Vengeance high-performance memory upgrade kits for laptops are designed to work with any PC or notebook which accepts standard DDR3 SODIMMs, and are backward compatible with notebooks and laptops which use first-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. Even on older notebooks, customers can still take advantage of the ability to upgrade to 8GB of memory using only two memory slots, and enjoy the confidence of Corsair's renowned service and support.

"As more complex applications and games are available in the market, many laptop users are looking for an easy way to improve their system performance in order to have the best experience." said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "Our new Vengeance high-performance laptop memory kits allow performance-minded customers to boost their memory performance and capacity in an instant."

Corsair Vengeance memory kits will initially be available in the following configurations:

It's not like your gonna out a window in the bottom of your lappy :)
That's not the point. I'm thinking about how it looks on the store shelf, and what people at the store will see. After doing so many reviews, it's become very obvious to me that packaging is very very important. A TONNE of engineering goes into cardboard boxes.

Black PCB, sticker matching the DIMM connector...fantastic esthetics for the store shelf.

It's not the same with SODIMM's. they have been using the same bubble pack for 6 years so changing the cardboard insert is a major R&D effort:wtf:

I'm not extremely knowledgeable on how a laptop determines at what speed the ram should work, but how do these sticks get your computer to use them at optimal settings?

Laptops and desktops are no different. Both use a small "SPD ROM" that contains the info needed for timings, speed, and voltages, right on the DIMMs. Most offer settings that are "JEDEC" approved, meaning the consortium of ram makers and sellers have agreed to these settings as being the standard, to ensure full compatibility.

What's new with these sticks, seemingly, in the models @ 1600 MHz and 1866 MHz, is the use of the new JEDEC settings(meaning no need for BIOS options to set things up) for these speeds. Very few laptop modules on the market offer JEDEC-approved SPD settings over 1333 MHz(which is what you've dealt with before).

I just tighten and flash the timings on one stick in SPDTool unless I have spare sticks, always safe to have one lying around just in case you mess up and need something to boot up and reflash.

Not just i5/i7...likely good for APUs too. Heard more than one remark about them needing faster RAM than what ships stock in the laptops.

I don't see it, my desktop Vengeance kits are set to 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 1.5v by default, it seems the same? The only difference is that 1866MHz runs 10-10-10-27 as opposed to the desktop 9-10-9-27, for a notebook those are pretty good values.

Actually it is not so true. 1-st Gen I-7 use 1333Mhz speed while Corsair Vengeance (at least first which came) don't have support for 1333Mhz JEDEC. Only for 1066Mhz. So I-7 will not have any advantage... Unless someone reflash it;)
