Corsair Announces Vengeance Notebook RAM for True Road Warriors

Paul Lilly

Before there was Sandy Bridge, you could argue there wasn't any point in equipping your notebook with enthusiast grade RAM. But now that even mainstream laptops have a bit of high-octane spunk in their DNA, Corsair's hoping there will be an audience for its new Vengeance SO-DIMM memory upgrade kits. These are high-performance memory kits comparable to desktop parts, but built for mobile form factors.

Four kits comprise the Vengeance laptop memory line, with operating speeds of up to 1866MHz (stock). Each one is designed to be plug-and-play ready without any BIOS tweaks. The kits include:

  • 8GB ( CMSX8GX3M2A1866C10 ): 1866MHz, 10-10-10-27, 1.5V, 2 DIMMs, $150 MSRP
  • 8GB ( CMSX8GX3M2A1600C9 ): 1600MHz, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V, 2 DIMMs, $75 MSRP
  • 4GB (CMSX4GX3M1A11866C10): 1866MHz, 10-10-10-27, 1.5V, 1 DIMM, Unknown MSRP
  • 4GB ( CMSX4GX3M1A1600C9 ): 1600MHz, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V, 1 DIMM, $40 MSRP

"As more complex applications and games are available in the market, many laptop users are looking for an easy way to improve their system performance in order to have the best experience." said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "Our new Vengeance high-performance laptop memory kits allow performance-minded customers to boost their memory performance and capacity in an instant."

Corsair is pitching these kits for use with notebooks built around Intel's second generation Core processor family, but says they'll work just fine with first generation Core processor-based notebooks and older laptops.
