Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600
The Intel P67 Sandy Bridge platform has produced quite a few changes from what we’ve seen on previous Intel platforms, from performance to overclocking. And a new socket always brings new memory kits to hit the market, and the 2nd Generation Intel Core family of processors is no exception.
Corsair is known for producing a wide range of memory products to suit just about any performance need or budget. So it really should come as no surprise their newest series, named Vengeance, takes aim at both of these criteria simultaneously.
The Vengeance DDR3 series comes in Dual and Triple Channel configurations, ranging from 4GB to 16GB kits, and are currently available in 1600MHz and 1866MHz speeds. Today we’re looking at an 8GB kit running at 1600MHz in that’s geared toward the new Sandy Bridge platform.
These new modules sport an aggressive aesthetic and sleek black heatspreaders. The really interesting thing is this 8GB kit only costs $105, one of the least expensive on the market in this speed range. Larger capacity, attractive styling, and a great price……are these Corsair Vengeance modules the next big thing? Let’s find out.
