Corsair has introduced its Vengeance LED family of memory modules designed for enthusiasts of high-performance PCs and modders. The fresh range of Corsair’s memory combines new design featuring LED lighting with high capacities as well as increased data-rates. Initially, the Vengeance LED DDR4 DIMMs will be available with data-rates up to 3466 MT/s, but in the near future the company promises to add DRAM sticks with speeds up to 4333 MT/s.
Each Corsair Vengeance LED unbuffered memory module is based on a custom 10-layer PCB as well as pre-binned DRAM chips that can run at data-rates well beyond 2133 MT/s and 2400 MT/s officially supported by today’s CPUs. The modules are equipped with aluminum heat spreaders featuring red or white lighting to complement design of modern motherboards, graphics cards, cases and PSUs. All new Vengeance LED DIMMs are optimized for Intel’s X99 and 100-series platforms and come with XMP 2.0 profiles to make it easier for end-users to run them at their data-rates with the right timings and voltage.
Initially available Corsair Vengeance LED memory modules come in 8 GB and 16 GB capacities (which means that they are likely based on the latest 8 Gb DDR4 ICs) and are shipped in dual-channel and quad-channel kits. The modules are rated to run at 2666 MT/s, 3000 MT/s, 3200 MT/s, 3400 MT/s as well as 3466 MT/s data-rates with CL15 17-17-35, CL16 18-18-35 or CL16 18-18-36 latencies. Depending on exact speed bins, the modules feature 1.2V or 1.35V power supply.

|16 GB||32 GB||2||CMU32GX4M2C3000C15
|3200 MT/s||CL16 18-18-36
|8 GB||16 GB||2||CMU16GX4M2C3200C16)
|16 GB||32 GB||2||CMU32GX4M2C3200C16
|3400 MT/s||8 GB||32 GB||4|| CMU32GX4M4C3400C16
Eventually, Corsair plans to introduce Vengeance LED modules capable or running at higher data-rates, including 3800 MT/s, 4000 MT/s as well as 4333 MT/s. Right now, the world’s highest-performing memory modules have 4 GB capacity and can run at 4266 MT/s. Therefore, with the introduction of DDR4-4333 DIMMs, Corsair would formally offer the world’s fastest memory sticks.
Pricing of Corsair’s Vengeance LED memory kits depends on specifications and capacity. The most affordable DDR4-2666 16 GB (2×8 GB) dual-channel kit costs $105, a faster DDR4-3200 16 GB (2×8 GB) dual-channel kit is priced at $115, whereas a DDR4-3200 64 GB (4×16 GB) quad-channel kit costs $485. All Vengeance LED modules and kits from Corsair are backed by the company’s lifetime warranty.

Corsair Unveils Some DDR4 RAM Sticks With 4333 MT/s Data-Rate. Ah, that's better.

Title: Corsair unveils DDR4 4333 MT/s
Reality: ...will be available with data-rates up to 3466 MT/s, but in the near future the company promises to add DRAM sticks with speeds up to 4333 MT/s.
Suggested title: Corsair unveils DDR4 3466 MT/s, will unveil 4333MT/s models in the near future
Title: Reader still thinks Anandtech has the edge in tech reporting
Reality: Anadtech tech reporting looks more and more like PR statements from manufacturers with no attempt to make them feel less misleading and clickbait-y
Ahnilated - Thursday, June 30, 2016 - linkExactly, this title is WAY wrong and very misleading. What a waste of a click to read about it.
fanofanand - Thursday, June 30, 2016 - linkyou hit the nail on the head.
Xinn3r - Thursday, June 30, 2016 - linkSo what website in your opinion has the edge in tech reporting these days?
close - Friday, July 22, 2016 - linkNone. Zero. They all "lack the edge". They have (and I will quote from a dictionary the following as being antonyms for "edge"): the bottom, center, inside, interior, middle, nadir, block, disadvantage, surface. Not the edge.
Tech reporting is mostly reduced to pushing out PR statements without even fact checking them first. And sorry to say but Anton is making a career out of "printing" this kind of releases. The title is of his own choosing so publishing this article with that misleading title is 100% the respectability of AnandTech.
Also there have been plenty of cases where the information was factually wrong because they chose NOT to publish the small print the manufacturer was providing on their site, thus giving out false info. Imagine talking about a screen and saying "a 5" screen" but forgetting to mention "just 2" are viewable area".
The real reson I keep coming back is this dude: Johan De Gelas. I'm sure the reviews (GPUs, phones, etc.) require a lot of work but they bring less value since the market is flooded with reviews that provide 80% of the results with maybe 20% of the effort. And the "news" is definitely just here to generate traffic for AT but 0 value for the reader since you can read the same more or less misleading info on every tech site out there.
Sushisamurai - Friday, July 1, 2016 - linkYeah really... please change the title as that was very misleading.
