Building the modules
Building the world's fastest production memory is no easy feat, you need the right combination of hardware and memory ICs. To build just one Vengeance Extreme DRAM module requires screening through over 1000 memory ICs. Check out the video below for more info on how the modules are made.
Performance DRAM such as our Vengeance and Platinum series can be found at rated speeds of up to 4333MHz. However, you might notice that when you first install your RAM and boot to your system’s BIOS, the RAM is running at its standard speed (2133MHz/2400MHz in the case of DDR4 memory). Why does memory initially run at this slower speed?
This blog is going to show you how easy it is to upgrade your Apple® MacBook® Pro to 8GB of memory. The total time to upgrade your MacBook’s memory is under 10 minutes. I used a MacBook Pro 17-inch mid-2010 model, and upgraded it from its current 4GB kit to a Corsair 8GB Mac Memory kit. To upgrade your MacBook's memory you will need a Phillips #00 screwdriver as the screws are very tiny.
Recently, Intel launched their new Ivybridge-E platform to update their Sandybridge-E chips which were launched about two years ago. These new Ivybridge-E chips share a lot in common with their precursors, including models with 6-cores, similar speeds, and virtually identical memory compatibility.
Overclocking memory can seem like a daunting task for the inexperienced, but fret not, we at CORSAIR can help! Follow the link below for our .PDF guide to overclocking your system memory for your Ryzen 3000 series build. The guide uses a GIGABYTE X570 AORUS MASTER motherboard for the examples, but there’s a helpful table… Continue Reading →
