Corsair Launches $3000 4,000MHz 192GB Memory Kit for Intel’s Xeon X-3175X

Last month, Intel shook the world with the announcement of their insane Xeon W-3175X processor, offering a total of 28 cores, 56 threads and support for up to 12 DDR4 memory DIMMs over six channels.

With Intel’s mightly new Xeon comes a new CPU platform, shipping on the Intel’s LGA3647 socket. Given the narrow use cases of this processor, only two motherboard manufacturers have decided to make overclocking-ready LGA3647 motherboards, one of which is ASUS’ ROG Dominus Extreme. For this motherboard, Corsair has created a range of 6-channel DDR4 memory kits, ranging from 96GB to 192GB in size and from speeds of 2666MHz to 4000MHz.

 

On the high-end, Corsair’s 12 DIMM 192GB 4000MHz DDR4 memory kit costs $2,999.99, and its 96GB equivalent costs $1,499.99, staggering amounts of money for leading-edge memory bandwidth capabilities. All of these kits are tested and validated on ASUS’ ROG Dominus Extreme motherboard. 

Corsair’s 6-channel memory kits have been released using the company’s Vengeance LPX brand name, and at this time the company appears to have no plans to release Dominator Platinum versions of these memory kits for Intel’s uber-high-end Xeon processor.

In terms of raw transfer rate, Corsair’s latest offerings can deliver transfer rates that extend way beyond what is possible on Intel’s X299 platform, with their high-end 4000MHz 6-channel memory kits offering read bandwidths as high as 122GB/s.

All of Corsair’s Vengeance LPX memory kits are created using “highly screened” (likely Samsung B-die) memory ICs, which are designed to offer high-performance levels while maintaining reasonable voltage requirements. 

Corsair’s new 6-channel LPX series memory kits are currently listed on Corsair’s website, but are currently unavailable for purchase.
