Corsair and MSI have teamed up to bring this extremely high rated kit of ram to the market rated at 5,000MHz in a 2x8GB configuration making it the first commercially available kit to reach these frequencies. This shows just how far the memory capabilities have come on the AMD Ryzen platform since it was even a struggle at times on the first generation, just two years ago, to hit DDR4 3200 and now we're seeing a kit like this hit the market.

Corsair Achieves 5000 MHz Memory Frequency on AMD Ryzen 3000 Platform With Their Vengeance LPC Modules

Don't let the mundane look of the Corsair Vengeance LPX memory sticks fool you as underneath is extremely high-quality Micron-based memory modules running at a surprisingly high transfer rate with memory timings to match at  18-26-26-46, but get ready to crank the voltage as it takes 1.5v to maintain these rated speeds. But, there is a catch here as with all extreme rated memory modules and that's motherboard compatibility and making on the QVL. The new modules have been designed and tested to achieve the frequency of 5,000MHz on the Ryzen 3000 platform in MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE, MSI MEG X570 ACE, MSI MEG X570 UNIFY, and PRESTIGE X570 CREATION motherboards using their included automated overclocking utilities. If you're on another motherboard or CPU lineup it will be hit or miss on how close you can get to these speeds without a bit of hassle.

For those curious about the 1.5v it's going to take to run these speeds and the heat that is inevitably going to generate, feel some respite in knowing that they're including their optional Vengeance Airflow Fan to strap onto the memory section of the motherboard. Active cooling memory is back and it's time to push the envelope again!
