Kingston Launches DDR3 Memory Modules

Kingston Technology has announced its DDR3 1066MHz memory modules, which have been validated on Intel reference platforms.

Expected to be twice as fast as highest speed DDR2 memory, DDR3 matches for systems using dual and quad core processors.

"As Kingston prepares for the industry migration to the new DDR3 memory technology, having validation on Intel reference platforms is critical to indicating we have a ready solution for PC system manufacturers, motherboard builders and the early adopter community," said Rajesh Panicker, country manager, Kingston Technology, India.

The lower voltage of DDR3 (moving to 1.5v versus 1.8v with DDR2) provides a more efficient memory solution for both mobile and server platforms.

"I am pleased to see that Kingston is developing DDR3 memory technology, which will support Intel s high-performance desktop platforms in 2007," said Steve Peterson, director of client chipsets, Intel.

Steve added that this technology will also provide the bandwidth headroom necessary to support Intel s product roadmap in the future.

Initially launching in 512MB and 1GB capacity modules as well as 1- and 2GB memory kits, the new Kingston HyperX and ValueRAM DDR3 1066MHz modules are the cutting edge of memory technology.

Kingston is currently sampling modules in limited quantities in capacities up to 1GB to support the next generation computer platforms shipping later in 2007.

Kingston products are distributed in India by Avnet India, Ingram Micro, Kobian Electronics and Transtek Infoways.
