Official Press Release

Fastest Technology - DDR3 Modules Ready as Industry Prepares to Embrace New Memory Platform

Kingston Technology, the world’s leading independent memory manufacturer, has announced the launch of its much anticipated HyperX 1375MHz and ValueRAM 1066MHz double-data-rate, three synchronous dynamic random access memory (DDR3 SDRAM) modules – the cutting-edge of memory technology. Hailed as the successor to the current DDR2 memory standard, DDR3 promises significant performance gains at lower voltage levels, resulting in lower overall power consumption. Additionally, Kingston Technology will be releasing ValueRAM 1333MHz DDR3 modules to coincide with X38 motherboards launching later this summer.

JK Tsai, director of Technology Resource Group, Kingston Technology comments; “Leading with our HyperX product line, Kingston is able to produce the fastest memory possible for gaming enthusiasts, professionals and innovators.” Tsai continues, “Introducing revolutionary technology, such as DDR3, to support the newest motherboards; plus our ValueRAM 1333MHz to support boards not yet on the market, and chipsets, is a great accomplishment by our dedicated engineering team. Many motherboard companies have tested Kingston DDR3 memory in their labs and are very satisfied with the performance.”

Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston Technology said:

Kingston Technology has been working closely with Asus, Gigabyte and other top motherboard manufacturers in our HyperX DDR3 testing process.” Tekunoff continues, “We have successfully screened and yielded production quantities of DDR3 memory at 1375MHz, giving technology ‘early adopters’ and gamers the opportunity to test-drive the newest motherboards at some of the highest performance levels available. Many motherboards shown at Computex 2007, based on the new P35 chipsets, now support DDR3 technology

DDR3 technology is expected to be twice as fast as today’s highest speed DDR2 memory and the greater bandwidth promised by DDR3 is a perfect match for systems using dual and quad core processors. The lower voltage of DDR3 (HyperX 1.7v versus 1.8v with DDR2 and ValueRAM 1.5v versus 1.8v with DDR2) provides a more efficient thermal solution for today’s desktop and future mobile and server platforms. Kingston DDR3 modules are shipping in 512MB and 1GB capacities, as well as 1GB and 2GB memory kits. Kingston Technology memory comes with a lifetime warranty and 24/7 technical support.

Kingston HyperX 1375MHz / ValueRAM 1066MHz DDR3 DIMM Features:
· DDR3-1375 CL7-7-7-20 @ 1.7v
· DDR3-1066 CL7-7-7-20 @ 1.5V
· CAS Latency: 7
