Kingston Technology, the world’s largest independent maker of memory modules, this week announced memory modules that are officially the world’s fastest DDR3 memory sticks that are certified by Intel Corp. for work in dual-channel model with Intel Core i7 microprocessors in LGA1156 form-factor.
Kingston’s KHX2400C9D3T1K2 memory modules can operate at 2400MHz with CL9 11-9-27-2 timings at 1.65 volts and were developed for enthusiasts, gamers and other enthusiasts looking to scale new memory heights. The 2400MHz kit was created with the highest design-engineering principles and subjected to OEM-quality production and testing standards to gain Intel XMP certification. At present Kingston’s 2.40GHz memory modules offer the highest performance possible. Even though Corsair Memory unveiled 2.40GHz Dominator GTX sticks earlier this year, Intel only certified them to operation at 2.33GHz.
Intel certified the modules from Kingston to work at 2.40GHz in dual-channel mode on Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard.
The 4GB 2400MHz kits will be available in Q2 2010. Kingston HyperX memory is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support. Pricing is unknown.
