03/08/2023 at 10:15 a.m. by Sven Bauduin – Corsair has presented four new DDR5 memory kits with two or four modules, each with 24 and 48 GiBytes per DIMM, which have a total capacity of 48 and 192 GiBytes at a speed of 7,000 MT/ s and a CAS latency of 40 clock cycles. The RAM is optimized using Intel XMP 3.0 for Intel Raptor Lake-S and the 700 chipsets.
Under the identifiers CMH48GX5M2B7000C40 and CMK48GX5M2B7000C40 as well as CMH192GX5M4B5200C38 and CMK192GX5M4B5200C38, Corsair has introduced four new DDR5 memory kits with speeds of up to 7,000 MT/s for current motherboards with socket sets LGA1700 and 700.

Two or four DDR5-DIMMs with the currently rather unusual capacity of 24 and 48 GiByte per module are used. While the RAM kits with a total capacity of 48 GiByte run with DDR5-7000 CL40, users who rely on 192 GiByte have to be satisfied with DDR5-5200 CL38. The manufacturer had already announced memory kits with 48 and 96 GiByte DDR5 in February.

The 7,000 MT/s memory modules operate at CL40-52-52-114 timings, while the 5,200 MT/s DIMMs operate at CL38-38-38-84 and faster secondary and tertiary timings. While the 48 GiByte kits are primarily aimed at gamers, the 192 GiByte kits are intended to appeal to content creators in particular. According to the manufacturer, the RAM is optimized for Intel Raptor Lake-S and its chipsets Z790, H770 and B760 and provided with the corresponding XMP profiles. Thanks to a partnership with Asus, the RAM on ROG motherboards has been validated.
Crucial also has modules with 24 and 48 GiBytes in its portfolio
Even before Corsair presented its new modules with 24 and 48 GiByte, Crucial, a subsidiary of the DRAM manufacturer Micron, had announced DIMMs with the corresponding capacities for the first time, but these have not yet reached the market. In both cases it can be assumed that the bars are equipped with 24-gibit ICs from the DRAM manufacturer SK Hynix.
