There are some occasions in the PC component market when it is just about bragging rights. Corsair has been working hard testing the tolerance of memory ICs to created the world's fastest memory kit... and they have succeeded. The Corsair Vengeance Extreme, a 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) kit at 3000 MHz, will be available starting this month.
You read that correctly. The Corsair Vengeance Extreme is clocked at 3000 MHz with 12-14-14-36 latency at 1.65 volts. The memory modules may look a lot like other Corsair memory, but don't let the low profile heatspreader fool you.
To achieve this Corsair hand-picked tested ICs where only 1 in 50 ICs passed. While being the fastest rated RAM in the world is great, the $749.99 price tag is very intimidating. If you need the best memory ICs for LN2 (liquid nitrogen) memory speed record-breaking, then you can find this kit only at Corsair's webpage.
