Corsair already offers their DDR4 Vengeance memory in two variants, the Vengeance LED and the Vengeance RGB. On Monday, Corsair announced a third variant, under the Vengeance RGB Pro moniker. Compared to the Vengeance RGB, the Pro modules feature brand new aluminum heat spreaders, available in both black and white, and a light bar with 10 RGB LEDs for better and more immersive lighting effects, customizable using Corsair’s proprietary iCue lighting software. The new Vengeance RGB Pro line is initially available in 16 GB and 32 GB capacities, in both dual-channel and quad-channel configurations, and rated for speeds up to DDR4-4000.
As far as compatibility is concerned, the Vengeance RGB Pros will ship with XMP 2.0 SPD profiles for easy set up on Intel-based platforms, but if you’re looking to pair them with an AMD Ryzen-based platform, then you may be restricted to using DDR4-3200 modules, with additional tweaking/cooling required for higher speeds. The new design is appreciably taller, so be sure to check for enough room, especially if you’re using an SFF or micro-ATX case.
There's no word on pricing yet, but given these are positioned above the Vengeance RGB, expect to pay top dollar when they initially launch in the U.S. in the near future.
