Kingston's Crazy Fast HyperX 2133MHz SO-DIMMs Receives Intel XMP Certification

The braggarts over at Kingston Technology have reason to beat their chests and toot their own horns today. That's because Intel just crowned Kingston's ridiculously fast HyperX 2133MHz SO-DIMM 4GB notebook memory kits with its XMP certification, making these notebook modules the first and fastest to be validated, Kingston says.


Adorned with Kingston's familiar blue heatspreaders, the company's 2133Mhz HyperX 4GB SO-DIMM (KHX2133C9S3K2/4GX) memory kits are tested at 2133MHz using CL9-11-9-27 timings at 1.5 volts. Kingston says it uses an ASRock HD65-MXM motherboard and Intel's second generation Core i7 2920XM processor to test these kits, which are designed to "push the current frequency boundaries of notebooks."

This is high-end stuff intended for enthusiast-grade notebooks and mobile workstations, and not your everyday laptop that Aunt Flo might be using. Try as we might, however, we couldn't find any vendor selling the stuff, and there's no word from Kingston on when the kits will ship or for how much.

The battle for king of the memory industry seems to go back and forth between Kingston and Samsung who are constantly out doing each other.

Not many laptops can support ram this fast. A friend has a new Asus SandyBridge and it only supports DDR3-1333.

I have to say, congratulations to Kingston for getting their super fast notebook RAM XMP certified.

Now if only we can start to see this type of RAM in gaming notebooks, preferably Maingear notebooks.

good one slugbug !

maybe you are like me and when I see something that I think is pretty hot and would like to see how this plays out....I like to make mental bookmarks so that when more info is available easy to take notice .At least keep an eye out for the ones that can  accept the higher mem speeds ...looks like it may be a while.

This is cool......but not something I'll be using right away. By the time the price is right, I won't even want it anymore, and besides, I do most of my computing/gaming on a desktop.
