Corsair announced a new DDR4 memory kit designed specifically for Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboards.
The new 16 GB (4 x 4 GB) Dominator Platinum kit matches the ROG color scheme with a black ten-layer PCB and heatsink, as well as a red aluminum top bar color matched to the Asus motherboard line. The memory is rated for DDR4-3200 with a CAS latency of 16-18-18-36, and it will run at that speed on any Intel 100-series motherboard, but a special XMP 2.0 profile specifically for ROG-branded motherboards raises the clock rate to 3,333 MHz. The CAS timings remain the same, despite the increased memory speed.
Here’s a full list of the compatible Asus ROG motherboards:
Asus Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Formula
Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Hero
Asus Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Extreme/Assembly
Asus Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Hero Alpha
Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Impact
Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Extreme
Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Ranger
Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Gene
Corsair’s new 16 GB Dominator Platinum DDR4-3200 (DDR4-3333 for ROG boards only) will be available soon from Corsair's website and online retailers with an MSRP of $189.99, and it’s backed by a lifetime warranty.
