Corsair pushes its DDR5 memory kits past 6 GHz
In a press release today (included below), Corsair has announced that they have pushed the speeds of their new Dominator Platinum DDR5 memory kits past 6,000 MT/s. Starting today, new 2x16 GB (32 GB Total) DDR5 memory kits will be available from Corsair's website and partnered retailers with speeds of 6,200 MT/s with CL36 timings and 6,400 MT/s with CL38 memory timings.
These new DDR5 memory kits are designed to deliver more bandwidth and do so with lower memory latencies than lower-speed DDR5 modules. With these changes, these modules should deliver optimal performance levels for gamers and content creators alike.
Like other Dominator Platinum series DDR5 memory kits, Corsair's newest Dominator Platinum DDR5 modules feature 12 addressable Cepellix LEDs on each module and a forged aluminium heatsink. These modules also feature Corsair's patented DHX cooling technology.
Corsair has also launched a new version of their iCUE software suite, offering users of their new DDR5 memory DIMMs to customise their DDR5 modules and create custom XMP 3.0 profiles. These profiles can be saved onto DDR5 memory modules, allowing custom memory settings to be retained with ease.
Last month, the overclocker David Miller, aka mllrkllr88, was able to achieve DDR5 memory speeds of 8,149 MT/s with Corsair's Dominator Platinum memory modules. These memory speeds were achieved under liquid nitrogen cooling with an ASRock Z690 AQUA OC motherboard and an Intel Core i9-12900KF processor.

CORSAIR (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced new kits of its acclaimed DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5 high-performance memory reaching frequencies up to a blistering 6,400MHz. Available in kits of 2x16GB, DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB 6,200MHz and 6,400MHz hit a new milestone with these unprecedented speeds, and are now more customizable than ever thanks to the new XMP Manager in CORSAIR iCUE software.
CORSAIR led the charge in next-generation memory with the release of DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5 and VENGEANCE DDR5 for the Intel® Z690 platform earlier this year, delivering higher frequencies in greater capacities than previously possible. Now the ceiling for DDR5 performance has risen again, with DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB once more pushing the boundaries for the most powerful systems leveraging 12th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors.
A version of CORSAIR iCUE software with XMP Manager is now available for download, offering an unparalleled level of control and customization to enthusiasts with the latest CORSAIR DDR5 memory. XMP Manager enables onboard voltage regulation of DDR5 memory through iCUE, delivering more precise, stable overclocking with custom Intel® XMP 3.0 profiles that can be saved directly to the module, to easily tailor performance to specific tasks.
DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5 is designed with a bold, refined aesthetic to complement its world-class performance, illuminated by 12 ultra-bright individually addressable CAPELLIX LEDs per module and expertly constructed with beautiful forged aluminum. Its patented DHX cooling design ensures that performance is not held back even at frequencies of 6,400MHz. As with all CORSAIR memory, DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
With the DDR5 generation, overclocking enthusiasts are smashing previous speed limits with the help of CORSAIR modules. In November, overclocker David Miller, aka mllrkllr88, set a new record level of speed for CORSAIR DDR5 memory by reaching a speed of 8,149MT/s when cooled with liquid nitrogen.* These verified results establish CORSAIR as a top choice for overclockers looking to achieve the world’s fastest frequencies. As speeds continue to increase in the DDR5 generation, CORSAIR remains on the cutting-edge of performance.
For PC enthusiasts looking to equip their newest masterpieces with nothing but the best, DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB remains in a class of its own.
