The US memory maker Corsair has presented a new high-end memory line called DDR4 Dominator Platinum ROG Edition. As you can see the new memory line has been developed in partnership with the Republic of Gamers division of ASUS and targets hardware enthusiasts and gamers. In addition to this the DDR4 Dominator Platinum ROG Edition comes with optimizations for the Intel Z170 chipset.
The DDR4 Dominator Platinum ROG Edition memory is available as a kit of four memory modules with a capacity of 4 GB for a total of 16 GB. The memory runs at 3200 MHz at 1.35V and features latencies of 16-18-18-36 clocks.
