<p>High-Speed 2GB-8GB Kits Tested, Validated for Peak Performance in Top Apple Models</p>
<p>Sydney Australia – 1 May 2008 – Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of DDR2- 800 fully-buffered dual-inline memory (FB-DIMM) specifically designed and validated for Apple Mac Pro workstations and Xserve server systems. The Kingston DDR2-800 FB-DIMM memory kits are available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities.</p>
<p>“Kingston is a member of the Apple Developer Connection© and our new DDR2-800 FB-DIMMs were thoroughly tested at the Apple validation labs on their latest 8-Core Xeon Mac Pro Workstation to ensure product quality and compatibility,” said Vaughan Nankivell, regional manager, Australia/New Zealand, Kingston. “To optimize performance, we recommend upgrading Mac Pro memory to at least four FB-DIMMs to enable running in quad-channel mode.”</p>
<p>Delivering up to 25.6 GB/s bandwidth with four memory channels active, Kingston DDR2-800 FB-DIMMs match the bandwidth needs of the latest Quad-Core Xeon processors. The 2GB and 4GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMMs enable a flexible upgrade path while leaving plenty of headroom for future RAM expansion.</p>
<p>Launched in January, the new Mac Pro models use one or two Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5400 series (Harpertown) processors. Mac Pro systems are designed with eight memory sockets that accept individual module capacities up to 4GB and a system maximum of 32GB. Kingston FB-DIMMs are backed by a lifetime warranty and free technical support.</p>
