Kingston Technology 1800MHz HyperX DDR3 Memory Wins Intel XMP Certification

<strong>Extreme Memory Profile-Approved 1800MHz DDR3 Modules Offer System Builders
Greater Choices to Increase Performance of Intel® Core™2 Extreme-based
</strong><strong>Sydney, Australia</strong> – <strong>July 08, 2008</strong>
– Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory
products, today announced its HyperX® 1800MHz DDR3 memory has been certified
under the Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP) validation program
to offer PC builders and gaming enthusiasts more performance memory options
and tuning flexibility when constructing high-performance systems using select
Intel X38/X48-series chipsets. <br/>
“Customers building or upgrading Intel XMP-ready systems now have an 1800MHz
HyperX XMP memory option to gain higher performance in their gaming and content
creation systems,” said Vaughan Nankivell Regional Manager - Australia
and New Zealand for Kingston Technology. “Many of our motherboard partners,
including ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte, have released XMP-ready offerings that can
take immediate advantage of HyperX XMP-certified memory on current X38 and X48
platforms. We expect this also to be true for the soon to be released P45 chipsets.”
When paired with select Intel X38/X48 series-based motherboards, Kingston HyperX
modules (designated with an ‘X’ at the end of the part number) increase
overall system performance. Designed for both the novice and experienced overclocker,
the XMP profile allows for easy overclocking selection through predefined profiles
in the BIOS or manual adjustment of Kingston HyperX XMP modules’ frequency
and timings.
