Because of our own DDR5 memory, we have key features such as the Intel XMP 3.0 profile, which should be configurable with any software, and also built-in voltage control in the entire module, so we can use different technologies with better output and stability.
Introducing the DDR5 CORSAIR Vengeance alum.
In the booklet we have a set of safety instructions and a plastic blister that protects the memory modules.
Here you can see the two CORSAIR Vengeance Digital DDR5 memory modules from the box already. When it comes to the Vengeance DDR5 without RGB, we can see that they are slightly higher. Despite the fact that, as we mentioned earlier, the manufacturer has integrated a lighting bar at the top of the bar.
The aluminum heatsink is the normal in this family of memories, and is very elegant and ethereal, and has a name as well as DDR. Both of these are RGB memories, although it’s clear that they are RGB memories.
On the opposite side we have the type of identification label, as you always say.
The most obvious difference to the non-RGB DDR5 Vengeance is obviously the translucent light bar that the manufacturer put on top. The system is changing from white to white.
Last aesthetic detail: CORSAIR has built its logo in the center of the light bar.
Even if these memory is expensive and enlightened, we can, in fact, consider the height of its heat sink is medium-sized, since it is almost 39,4 mm from the login area.
After seeing the memories, it’s time to connect them to the test test to check they’re working well.
Vengeance RGB DDR5 Benchmarks.
Our usual test bench for memory, like the Alder Lake-S, was used, the only one that combines memory with DDR5. Here’s the material used:
- Intel Core i9-12900K.
- ASUS ROG MAX Z690 HERO.
- Stay calm. Pure rock 2.
- CORSAIRE RM 1000i.
- TeamGroup Cardea A440, 2TB.
- GeForce RTX3070 Ti.
To perform all the tests, we used Windows 11 Pro with all of the updates installed on the operating system, and the CORSAIR iCUE software in its latest available version (4.26.110). One important thing to remember is that the software will not detect RAM memories unless you don’t enable the setting called SPD Write in the BIOS. Another important thing to remember is that if these memories take a run on 6000MHz, you should have the XMP Profile in the BIOS.
Below you’ll see a screenshot of a CPU-Z which shows us the RAM, CPU and motherboard used during this analysis. Interestingly, CORSAIR continues to depend on Samsung for its DDR5 memory.
We will first see what options iCUE offers and what is the unified technology. As of the moment we can see the compatible hardware that we have on our PC where these memories are located.
When we press on the memory, the first configuration tab, for which we meet, is called DIMM Installation, and the software is used to tell the software the layout of the motherboard sockets and the amount of RAM we have mounted. This makes it possible to generate a homogeneous light effect.
It’s the second table in the lighting, which is where we can control the RGB lighting in the RAMs with precisely one. We’ve seen this section before, so we don’t dwell on it more than one more thing; we have several effects and we can configure our own, by examining each memory module with ten independent LEDs. The next tab, Hardware Lighting, is the same, so it’s still a software failure.
The next tab is the screen Light, and here we can monitor the temperature and voltage values of the memories. In theory, there should be also a configuration of XMP memory profile, which we promised to become one of the great novelties of DDR5, but which we still haven’t available.
In the Alarm tab, we can do all that, the alarms. This way we could shake things up when the RAM reaches a certain temperature threshold, like all the red lights crashing, the file running or the PC shutting down.
Finally, we can save the brightness and use the screen from the settings on the device.
Since we have a software which can’t be tested, let’s begin to take care of the performance.
Aida64 gives us a scale of the volume of reading, writing, copying and latency of memories. The processing factors influence a lot of things, but here is the result.
The performance of these memories we give us under the aida64 benchmark puts them in first place – almost at the same time as the TeamGroup model at 6400MHz, which in theory should be much higher (but it is obvious that it isn’t the case).
The processing machine will set the number Pi to a numerical order, a task that requires a hard memory for the rest of the process because the results are permanently stored there. The calculations are based on a table of 32 million decimal points.
We see here that the CORSAIR Vengeance RGB DDR5 are penalized by these 400 MHz enjoyed by the teamgroup, but of course, the difference is not very visible and the performance is still optimal.
We perform a similar operation to the first one in this experiment but using other algorithms. We can control the CPU processing threads by one-on-one, so the comparison is reliable.
This measure takes two decades to compute. Even if the result is realistic due to the fact that the memory can operate at 6000 MHz, it’s really exceptional.
The well-known software WinRAR has its own benchmark. I’ll see the correct performance of the system to compress and decompress files. However, CPU’s performance determines, but this is a key problem.
The result is impressive, as the RGB DDR5s, CORSAIR crowned as the ones that showed the best performance for us, were behind even TeamGroups 6,000 MHz memories by giving their greater read power.
Conclusion and judgment.
With its configurable RGB lighting, the CORSAIR presents a product that almost everything we can aspire to: performance beyond any doubt, the high quality of the product itself, and even in full color.
Of course, the most effective part of these memories is that they are the cheapest DDR5 with RGB on the market, even if they are not so expensive such a thing, it is certainly, cost-effective in comparison to other similar products delivering the same performance.
This DDR5 from the CORSAIR V6Phone is worthy of the Platinum award as well as our recommendation on performance and value for money.
