Kingston Technology, the world’s largest producer of memory modules, has unveiled memory modules that enable higher performance of notebooks based on Intel’s latest Centrino 2 platform with DDR3 memory thanks to extreme memory profiles (XMP) technology.

Kingston HyperX DDR3 XMP SO-DIMM 4GB kit (two modules per 2GBs) can operate at 1066MHz with CL5 5-5-15 latency settings and 1.5V voltage. Since they come pre-programmed with JEDEC and XMP profiles, such speed and timings may be set on virtually any notebook.

“The HyperX DDR3 XMP SO-DIMMs were tested on the Flextronics W840 DI notebook PCs with great success. DDR3 notebook users can now enjoy the same benefits such as lower latencies and voltages that enthusiasts and gamers have had for years with HyperX memory for desktop computers,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager at Kingston.

It remains to be seen whether the market of SO-DIMMs with XMP is actually large. So far, OCZ Technology and Kingston have announced appropriate memory modules, but other makers yet have to follow. Still, only the market will prove whether the idea of improved laptop memory sub-systems performance is a popular idea among notebook users.
