Kingston Technology Company announced the limited availability of its HyperX PC3200 registered memory modules for system integrators and enthusiasts. Following OCZ Technology, Kingston is ready to provide RAM sticks for AMD Athlon 64 FX-based systems that only work with registered DIMMs.

Kingston’s HyperX PC3200 registered memory kit has KRX3200K2/1G part number and is currently available to system builders. The kits contain two 512MB PC3200 memory modules clocked at 400MHz with very moderate timings of CL 3-3-3-8-1. The product will be available to enthusiasts in retail channel shortly, it is alluded in the press release. Suggested retail price of the parts is $450.

Typical 512MB PC3200 un-buffered memory modules with moderate timings cost $80 - $90 in the USA nowadays. A pair of such devices does not cost more than $200, more than two times less compared to a couple of registered memory modules for AMD Athlon FX-51 microprocessors. Even taking all advantages of the new 64-bit chip for desktops from AMD into account, I should say that systems powered by the novelty will cost too much money even for enthusiasts...

But hey, there are Extreme Enthusiasts as well! :)
