Review: Corsair Vengeance LP 1600 C9B 8GB review

AMD's CPUs can't compete with Intel's when it comes to processing power alone, but when it comes to integrated graphics, the situation is a bit different. Our today's weapon of choice is AMD's Trinity A10 5800K with HD 7660D graphics engine, which has 384 shader cores. The same embedded GPU is a part of the A10 5700K.

In its core, the HD 7660D is much like the discrete GPU. Memory bandwidth is important factors for performance but since the embedded GPU depends on system momory, the bandwidth will depend on system memory speed.

Today we will look at Corsair's 8GB kit, precisely Vengeance LP CML8GX3M2A1600C9B memory. This set, which consists of 2x4GB modules, goes for only €35. Speed is rated at PC3-12800 (1600 MT/s).  

CML8GX3M2A1600C9B specification:
- Warranty Lifetime

- Size 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB)

- Performance Profile XMP

- Fan Included No

- Heat Spreader Vengeance

- Memory Configuration Dual Channel

- Memory Type DDR3

- Package - Memory Pin 240

- Package - Memory Format DIMM

- Tested Voltage 1.5

- SPD Voltage 1.5

- Speed Rating PC3-12800 (1600MHz)

- SPD Speed 1333MHz

- Tested Speed 1600MHz

- Tested Latency 9-9-9-24

- SPD Latency 9-9-9-24

The Vengeance LP kit arrives safely boxed in a transparent plastic blister which is packed into a small cardboard box that features a big image of the module on the front side, and a small window on the back for a better presentation of specifications.
