Do you really need 16GB or 24GB of RAM? For most users, the answer is 'probably not.' But could you picture pairing Intel's Core i7 980X processor with a 24GB DDR3 kit? Sure you could, and Corsair is ready to oblige.
The Fremont, CA-based memory maker announced a pair of new Dominator kits this week, both of which border on the excessive. According to Corsair, the new 16GB and 24GB kits have also been "rigorously qualified and tested" on Intel's X58 (24GB) and P55 (16GB) platforms. But who are these really for?
"We continue to see increasing demands for high density solutions from programmers, scientists, videographers, and other data-intensive users," stated John Beekley, VP of Technical Marketing at Corsair. "These new 1600MHz modules will enable a new level of processing speed for handling these large data sets."
Both kits sport latencies of 9-9-9-24 and are available now . The 16GB kit runs $1,000, while the 24GB kit checks in at $1,450, and both include Corsair's Airflow fan.
