Not that you'll be needing such extreme amounts of memory for your gaming rig anytime soon but Corsair has just launched a new 24GB kit under its Dominator series. Designed and tested for use on Intel's X58 platform, the triple-channel kit consists of six 4GB modules clocked at 1,333MHz with latencies of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65V voltage.

Each module features Corsair's patented DHX+ heatsinks and the company is tossing in a Dominator Airflow cooler equipped with a duo of 60mm fans for good measure. Although the branding suggests this 24GB kit is aimed at gamers and performance enthusiasts, Corsair says the new set is actually designed for workstation users and those in the computational research, HD digital content creation, or virtualization fields.

Indeed the value of a 24GB DDR3 RAM kit is practically non-existent in home environments, and the $1,349.99 it costs will definitely be better spent elsewhere if you are looking for a performance boost. In any case, the new memory kit is available right now from Corsair's online store and comes backed by a lifetime warranty.
