Just a couple of months after Kingston Technology unveiled its high-speed 4GB memory modules, the company formally announced its new 16GB and 24GB memory kits mostly aimed at 64-bit workstations.
Kingston’s new HyperX 16GB kit consists of four 4GB memory modules and is aimed at LGA1156 systems with dual-channel memory controller, whereas Kingston HyperX 24GB kit includes six 4GB memory modules and is designed for LGA1366 platforms with triple-channel memory controllers. The 4GB memory sticks are capable of working at 1600MHz with CL9 9-9-27 timings and 1.65V voltage setting.
“We are pleased to make available the largest HyperX memory kits ever for the prosumers, multimedia pro or super enthusiast who wants everything. Users working with the latest operating systems like Windows 7 can keep multiple programs open, run memory intensive video or photo applications, or run numerous virtual machines using 24GB or 16GB of DDR3 HyperX memory and create more efficiency and performance gains than ever before," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager at Kingston.
Quite naturally, the pricing of ultra high-capacity HyperX memory kits is rather extreme, especially keeping in mind that Kingston launches its new products in the first quarter amid global slowdown of economy: $1065 for 16GB and $1598 for 24GB kit.
