Kingston announced it is shipping 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. Additionally, Kingston will release ValueRAM 1333MHz DDR3 modules to coincide with X38 motherboards launching later this summer.

“Leading with our HyperX product line, Kingston is able to produce the fastest memory possible for enthusiast gamers, professionals and innovators,” said JK Tsai, director, Technology Resource Group, Kingston(R). “Introducing revolutionary technology such as DDR3 to support the newest motherboards–our ValueRAM 1333MHz supports boards not yet on the market–and chipsets is a great accomplishment from our dedicated engineering team. Many motherboard companies have tested Kingston DDR3 memory in their labs and are very satisfied with the performance.”

“Kingston has been working closely with Asus, Gigabyte and other top motherboard manufacturers in our HyperX DDR3 testing process,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. “We successfully screened and yielded production quantities of DDR3 memory at 1375MHz, giving technology early adopters and gamers the opportunity to test-drive the newest motherboards at some of the highest performance levels available. Many motherboards shown at Computex 2007, based on the new P35 chipsets, now support DDR3 technology.”

DDR3 technology is expected to be twice as fast as today’s highest speed DDR2 memory and the greater bandwidth promised by DDR3. 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.

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