Corsair Dominator Titanium 7200MHz 48GB DDR5 Memory Review

How Much Does It Cost?

The Corsair Dominator Titanium is being released in limited supply, with only 500 sets of each variant being made available across a number of speeds and capacities. With that in mind, stock is unlikely to last very long, and prices on these are going to be both high and likely quite variable. I wouldn’t be overly surprised to see a little scalping going on too, unfortunately, as these will be in high demand for extreme builds. Check out the official product page for further details.

The 7200MT/s 48GB 2x24GB DIMM, Unbuffered, 36-46-46-116 DOMINATOR TITANIUM First Edition White that we reviewed is $284.99/£269.99. However, you can purchase additional accessory kits, such as the GT Fin Style Top, non-RGB, Black, grey or white for $29.99/£39.99.

Overview

Corsair has a long history of high-performance computer memory. After, memory is what they started with in the early 90s as they were an OEM manufacturer before they moved into making DRAM in the early 2000s, so it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing with about three decades of being one of the biggest names in the business. Of course, their portfolio has expanded significantly in that time, and Corsair is easily the leading name for enthusiast PC gaming hardware right now.

The Corsair Dominator series has long been the absolute pinnacle of DDR memory too. Where there are competitive kits out there, even some that can push higher overclocks, the Dominator series has been less focused on one thing, they try to be a premium product in every regard, such as build quality, material and component choices, aesthetics, capacities, and of course, performance.

Obviously, performance is not an issue here. With 48GB running at 7200 MHz, the kit Corsair provided us with more than enough DRAM for most high-end and enthusiast users. However, it also had a 7400 MHz profile with slighter looser times. It’s also exceptionally fast and has decent timing, so again, there’s really nothing to complain about there. However, if you did want to go even faster, Corsair has the Dominator Titanium available at speeds of up to 8000 MT/s, should you need it.

Should I Buy One?

I suspect many who want this memory don’t really need it. As we saw in testing, using 24GB modules does slow down some testing, but provides benefits to memory-intensive tasks. It was all over in gaming performance but largely averaged out on par with its rivals. It’s just a cool thing to have and the specifications are good bragging rights, even if they’re not really always relevant to say… a gaming PC, there’s no getting away from their performance, but you have to be willing to pay up, as the price difference between consumer kits and these premium ones is going to be bigger than the performance gap.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
