Corsair 192 GB DDR4 kits for W-3175X Listed Online: Up to $3000by Gavin Bonshor on February 12, 2019 12:00 PM EST
Corsair has released a range of 192 GB DDR4 kits to complement the workstation-focused Intel Xeon W-3175X processor which features 28 cores. The top kit from the new line-up Corsair Vengeance LPX 192 GB operates at DDR4-4000 with a latency of CL19 and has a price tag of $3000.
Using its characteristic heatsink design, Corsair has equipped its 192 GB kits with the Vengeance LPX low profile heat spreaders which are constructed with anodized aluminum and feature an all-black design. Each kit comes supplied with two Vengeance Airflow cooling systems catering for both sides of the ROG Dominus Extreme motherboard; this is the only motherboard that supports the Intel Xeon W-3175X at present.
The four kits available are rated at DDR4-2666 CL16, DDR4-3200 CL16, DDR4-3600 CL18, and DDR4-4000 CL19. Each 192 GB kit consists of twelve 16 GB sticks which operate in hexa-channel mode on the Xeon W-3175X and other LGA3647 CPUs that allow for UDIMM operation. On the DDR4-2666 kit, the operating voltage is at 1.20 V, with the faster kits requiring 1.35 V to run at their rated specifications.
|Corsair Vengeance LPX 192 GB Kits for Intel Xeon W-3175X|
|DDR4-2666||CL16 18-18-35||1.20 V||12×16 GB||CMK192GX4M12P2666C16||$1585|
|DDR4-3200||CL16 18-18-36||1.35 V||CMK192GX4M12P3200C16||$1720|
The four Corsair Vengeance LPX kits are available for purchase directly from the Corsair Store, with each kit occupying a different price point. The cheapest 192 GB kit is the DDR4-2666 CL16 with a cost $1585, while the next fastest, the DDR4-3200 CL has an MSRP of $1720. Moving up to the DDR4-3600 CL18 kit, it costs $2320 and unsurprisingly, the DDR4-4000 CL19 kit is the most expensive with a mouth-watering price tag of $3000.
All four kits on Corsair's website are currently listed as 'notify me when in stock', so it will be interesting so see when they will be in stock and how many units will be available.

SanX - Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - linkAnother IT pricefixing absurd is RAM: probably 100x the production cost
shabby - Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - linkDon't jinx it or another catastrophe will happen in them dram plants and prices will skyrocket again.
Vatharian - Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - linkIt's not THAT bad, but still could be better. Looking at 2666 MT/s memory, normal Vengeance costs around $90-$110 per stick, which gives around ~$1200-$1300 per kit. Even with two (completely unnecessary) fans, that's over $300 premium over individual kits. Little nuts.
Manufacturing costs for basic 16GB 2133 MT/s memory are in $43-49 (depending on DRAM source, in-house fab or bought @ auction) per stick AFAIK, and from there it only goes up due to binning. Heatspreaders add ~$3-5, couple bucks for packaging, and everything else is markup (they are not charity organizations, but corporations). Don't forget that markup is divided between manufacturer, distributor and endpoint retailer.

only the first has any meaningful unit cost. warehouse space, per unit, is in the hundreths of a cent. manufacturing (really, assembly of OPP) isn't much, either.
Strunf - Wednesday, February 13, 2019 - link$300 over individual isn't nuts, unless it's a myth these kits are tested so all sticks are similar, and I'm guessing Corsair is picking already validated dual stick kits and validating them again on a 12x configuration, the extra ventilators with their assembly, plus some bulkier packaging, all that adds up.
shiromar - Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - linkare these ECC?
Cullinaire - Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - linkThe phrase you're looking for is "eye-watering"
Ian Cutress - Wednesday, February 13, 2019 - linkDepends if you are salivating or crying.
PeachNCream - Wednesday, February 13, 2019 - linkI think "eye rolling" is a more appropriate reaction in this case.
