Corsair's latest Dominator Platinum DDR5 modules are amongst the fastest that are available today
Memory is a vital part of all computers, and amongst PC enthusiasts, it is a component that is often overlooked. Yes, CPUs and GPUs are incredibly important factors when it comes to your systems overall performance, but unless your DRAM has fast enough to feed those workhorses effectively, your system's performance may suffer.
Corsair has just launched new DDR5-6600 Dominator Platinum RGB series DRAM modules, offering users tight CL32 (CL32-39-39-76) latencies across a 2x16GB kit. Today, these modules are amongst the fastest available, offering tighter latencies than many competing modules alongside fast 6600MT/s trasfer rates.
These new Dominator Platinum modules are designed to be used with Intel's 12th Generation Alder Lake processors on their Z690 series motherboards. Each module comes with 12 Capellex RGB LEDs that an be controlled using Corsair's iCUE software.
High speed, low latency DRAM modules can react quickly and offer users a tonne of bandwidth, ensuring that users have access to the bandwidth that they need to complete challenging workloads quickly, and that data is delivered in a tighter timeframe to ensure that data is worked on as quickly as possible. This results in a system that is snappier and more performant.
With a price tag of £419.99 on Corsair's website, we can say two things. For starters, we can see that high-end DDR5 prices are falling. It wasn't long ago that even mainstream 2x16GB kits of DDR5 had this kind of pricing. Second, we can see that DDR5 pricing needs to drop further before it can become a mainstream option. That said, it is worth remembering that this is a premium DDR5 memory kit with high module speeds and tight CL timings.
