Hardware companies Corsair and ASUS have teamed up to create the fastest production DDR4 memory kit for use with the Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition CPUs. The new Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 memory kits are available in 3000MHz, 3200MHz and 3300MhZ speeds. The new RAM kits work especially well using the ASUS X99 Deluxe and Rampage V Extreme motherboards for Intel Core i7 CPU fans.
This is a significant collaboration, as DDR3 speeds increased from 800MHz up to 1600-1866MHz, but the DDR4 modules introduced by Corsair should immediately provide impressive benchmarks. The Corsair DDR4 memory kits are available now for the Vengeance LPX and Dominator Platinum lines - and the ASUS X99-Deluxe and Rampage and V Extreme motherboards are available now.
"Our rigorous validation with ASUS has enabled us to make Dominator Platinum 3300MHz the fastest desktop DDR4 memory available at launch," said Thi La, Corsair COO, in a press statement. "Our OC team and engineers are excited to see such performance headroom the new Intel platform and are looking forward to releasing even faster kits in the near future."
