Kingston Technology rolls out DDR3 memory
Kingston Technology Company, Inc. is now shipping the HyperX 1375MHz and ValueRAM 1066MHz double-data-rate three synchronous dynamic random access memory (DDR3 SDRAM) modules. Hailed as the successor to the current DDR2 memory standard, DDR3 promises significant performance gains at lower voltage levels, resulting in lower overall power consumption.

The company is also planning to release ValueRAM 1333MHz DDR3 modules to coincide with X38 motherboards launching later this year.

DDR3 technology is expected to be twice as fast as today’s highest speed DDR2 memory and the greater bandwidth promised by DDR3 is a perfect match for systems using dual and quad core processors. The lower voltage of DDR3 (HyperX 1.7v versus 1.8v with DDR2 and ValueRAM 1.5v versus 1.8v with DDR2) provides a more efficient thermal solution for today’s desktop and future mobile and server platforms.

Kingston DDR3 modules are shipping in 512MB and 1GB capacities as well as 1- and 2GB memory kits.
