Corsair recently released a new Vengeance RGB DDR4 memory series. I’m not sure if you can consider this new series a successor to the previous Vengeance DDR4 memory kits, like the RGB PRO SL. But it does come with a different look and heat spreader design. Further, there are two variants of this new DDR4 series – the Vengeance RGB RT and Vengeance RGB RS. Find out what’s new and what’s the difference between the RT and RS below.
Corsair Unleashes Vengeance RGB RT and RS DDR4 Memory Modules
The new Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 memory series offers a new heatsink design and aesthetics. In addition, there are two distinct variants or models: the RT and RS. The RT memory kits feature a dual-tone styling, while the RS is only available in an all-black color theme.
The Vengeance RGB RT DDR4 is available in two colors – white and black, and gunmetal and black. Also, it looks like the triangles on the heat spreader are embossed on the RT memory kits. In addition to a more meticulous design, there are 10 RGB LEDs on the RT kits. The 10-zone RGB lighting is individually addressable and can be customized using the Corsair iCue software.
Meanwhile, the Vengeance RGB RS DDR4 only has 6-zone RGB lighting or 6 RGB LEDs. The RT will look better and brighter since it has more RGB LEDs. Based on the heatsink design, aesthetics, and number of LEDs, you can tell that the RS would be the “cheaper” variant between the two.
Aside from the difference in design and aesthetics, the Vengeance RGB RT is optimized for AMD Ryzen systems, including TRX40. It is available at 3,200MHz, 3,600MHz, 4,000MHz, and 4,600MHz memory speed. When it comes to capacity, it is available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB.
On the other hand, the Corsair Vengeance RGB RS is optimized for both AMD and Intel motherboards. However, it is only available at 3,200MHz and 3,600MHz memory speed.
Which One to Get?
If you are using an AMD system, the obvious choice would be the Vengeance RGB RT. It looks better, has better lighting, and is fully optimized for AMD Ryzen systems. The RS variant will work both with an AMD and Intel platform, not to mention it’s slightly cheaper. But it is not available at faster clock speeds, and in my opinion, the RT looks better.
Price and Where to Buy
Both the Corsair Vengeance RGB RT and RS DDR4 memory kits are now available to order. Corsair also offers a limited lifetime warranty for the said memory kits. You can check out the links below for the latest pricing and availability.
