Kingston Memory, the world’s largest manufacturer of memory modules, on Wednesday unveiled the world’s first 12GB memory kit for systems powered by Intel Core i7 central processing units. The kit provides unprecedented performance for workstation and virtualized applications, but comes at a price.

Kingston’s 12GB memory kit for Intel Core i7-based personal computers consists of three 4GB memory modules and is capable of functioning at 1600MHz with CL9 9-9-27 latency settings at 1.65v voltage. The kit carries HyperX brand, which implies that it is aimed at performance-minded enthusiasts, and features eXreme Memory Profiles (XMP) settings to enable automatic operation at the clock-speed not officially supported by current platforms.

“Kingston was first to release 2GHz kits and has continued to lead the memory charge with more DDR3 offerings since Intel created the triple-channel architecture. Our latest kit of three was tested with great success on the Asus P6T Deluxe motherboard and runs at a speedy 1600MHz to take full advantage of the memory controller on the Core i7 processor for unmatched performance,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston.

The 12GB kit is the largest kit available in the HyperX family of triple-channel memory solutions. Other kits are available in 3GB and 6GB capacities with frequencies up to 2GHz. The Kingston HyperX 1600MHz 12GB triple-channel kit is also the most expensive memory kit available on the market and carries whopping $1400 price-tag.
