Kingston Memory, the largest maker of memory modules, this week initiated shipments of 12GB triple-channel memory kits for high-end desktops and workstations. The new kit is likely to be one of the first of its kind and other leading suppliers of memory modules are expected to follow Kingston with 12GB solutions.

Kingston HyperX 12GB kit consists of three 4GB memory modules capable of working at 1600MHz with CL9 9-9-27 timings and 1.65V voltage setting. The kit is designed for Intel Core i7 processors in LGA1366 form-factor that feature triple-channel memory controller.

“The 12GB memory kit helps increase overall system performance in 64-bit operating systems. System builders and ultra enthusiasts who deploy 12GB of Kingston triple-channel memory will find performance increases in such tasks as video encoding, processing large photo files, graphical rendering and extreme PC games,” a statement by Kingston reads.

The memory kit has been tested with “great success” on motherboards with six sockets and is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support. Manufacturer suggested retail price of HyperX 12GB kit is $413, not a low price-tag considering global slowdown of economy, but not an extreme price-point nevertheless.

Huh? That's old news, is it?
Or is the news here that they now bundle three 4GB modules previously only separately?
Uh, yea. BIG NEWS.
Besides, we now need 8Gb DDR3 bundles for Lynfield based systems.
