It’s All In The Timing
There are two strong arguments for buying this new Corsair Vengeance kit, the DDR5-6000 Intel XMP 3.0 profile and the fact it operates at timings of 36-36-36-76. Having CL and other timings below 40 is a big help for DDR5, as the original DIMMs tended to be a little looser in timing unless you were willing to pay a huge fee. This 32GB DDR5-6000 should sell for around $250, which is not bad for a kit of that size.
In their testing, The FPS Review found this Corsair Vengeance kit fighting it out for top place against a DDR5-6200 kit with a CAS latency of 40. It fell behind in a few synthetic tests but in gaming it generally took top place, though often by a single frame which won’t be noticeable. The review does help give you a rough benchmark of one level of performance, freeing you up to shop for the best value assuming this is around the frequency you are shopping for.
You might also prefer this kit if you have a rig controlled by Corsair’s iCUE software, as it is fully RGB’d.
