We recently got a leak regarding Gigabyte RAM that mentioned that it would be able to hit speeds of 5000 MHz on supported motherboards. Now Corsair has confirmed that the Vengence LPC DRAM hits 5000 MHz on compatible X570 motherboards.
This means that you do need an AMD build but 5000 MHz is very fast indeed and we know that AMD Ryzen CPUs like fast memory. The following is the official tweet from Corsair.
