Corsair Vengeance LPX 128GB DDR4-2400 Review

As the first consumer DDR4 kit available at 128GB, Corsair’s latest Vengeance LPX sets the trend for future 16GB-per-DIMM capacities.

The Bandwidth and Latency benchmarks of SiSoftware’s Sandra show slight decreases from the slower rated timings of both the Corsair 128GB and Adata 32GB kits, but these differences are likely too small to have a noticeable impact on real-world benchmarks.

    this will look great in my signature on overclocking forums

    The random access memory, when can it occupy beyond 16GB of physical memory?

    When you add more than 1 stick of 16GB memory in a motherboard. :P

    Although 32GB sticks will probably start creeping up here soon.... You can see them on newegg already for some workstations/servers.

    Looks great! Those cooling fans for the RAM look mean, I can see why if somebody bought those for esthetics.

    Wow though 128GB! I don't think 95% of us power users even us that much. :D Unless you like gaming on RAMdisks.

    I splurged last Christmas and maxed out my rig at 32GB. I've even managed to get to about 95% usage a couple times. But, crap, 128GB? For non-server applications? There must be so few programs/projects that can actually utilize that.

    I plan on doing 32gb on my new build. which would be better
    1. 32gb kit (4x8)
    or
    2. 2x 16gb kits (4x4)x2

  • The last word in this article is misspelled. It's "purchase" not "purchas".

    expunged, go for a single 4x8GB kit.

    Generally speaking less dimms at the same capacity and same clock speed/latency is better system stability, but in this case not so sure due to CPU related clock speed limitation on these new 16GB dimm kits the opposite is likely true.

    It is worth saying, though. You don't know speed until you've run virtual machines off of RAMdisks. Makes SSDs feel sluggish.
