Around here, all you really have to do is shout "world's first" or "world's fastest," and you'll have our attention. Particularly when talking about SSDs, HDDs, GPUs, CPUs and memory. Kingston Technology is talking about RAM today, and they've got yet another world's quickest with the planet's fastest triple-channel memory. Intel has certified the new module at 2333MHz, making it the perfect option for a new rig if you're into overclocking or simply can't sleep soundly without having the world's finest within your enclosure.

The new HyperX triple-channel DDR3 memory kit now has Intel XMP certification on the Core i7 platform. The 2333MHz kit runs at 9-11-9-27 timings at 1.65 volts, and Kingston achieved the feat on an X58 system consisting of the Intel Core i7-980X processor and ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard. Soon, 2333MHz 3GB triple-channel kits will be shipping to market, as well as 2250MHz 6GB kits. Pricing is listed below, and as usual, it's not pretty. But it's not unexpected for the "world's fastest" to basically be the "world's most expensive."

Kingston Technology Creates World's Fastest Triple-Channel Memory Intel Certifies HyperX Clocked at 2333MHz
2333MHz, 2250MHz Kits, Modules to be Introduced 

Fountain Valley, CA -- June 1, 2010 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it has developed the fastest DDR3 triple-channel, Intel-certified memory in the world. Running at 2333MHz, Kingston’s HyperX® triple-channel DDR3 memory kit (Kingston part #: KHX2333C9D3T1FK3/6GX) gained Intel® XMP certification on the Core™ i7™ platform. Intel’s certification is posted at:

The 2333MHz kit runs at 9-11-9-27 timings at 1.65 volts. Kingston® achieved the feat on an X58 system consisting of the Intel Core i7-980X processor and ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard. Kingston will soon introduce 2333MHz 3GB triple-channel kits to the market, as well as 2250MHz 6GB kits for enthusiasts, gamers and benchmarkers looking to scale new memory heights.

"Our market-leading 2333MHz HyperX memory was created with the highest design-engineering principles and subjected to OEM-quality production and testing standards to gain Intel XMP certification," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. "Overclockers who want to max out memory performance in their Core i7 systems need to look no further than Kingston’s latest offerings."

The 2333MHz triple-channel kit follows the March 2010 announcement that Kingston created the fastest memory in the world, validated by Intel. The HyperX dual-channel kits were certified at an astounding 2400MHz (Kingston part #: KHX2400C9D3T1K2/4GX).

Kingston HyperX memory is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support. For detailed information please visit the Kingston Web site at www.kingston.com.

Nice ram, but even "regular" crucial ram gives probably about 90-95% of the performance of these high end RAM chips. (I know these are meant for overclockers)

I wonder if you can underclock these chips and set much tighter timings (say 6-6-6-10). I would take the tighter timings over the insane clock speed.

Current computer:

Asus G73JH-A1

Core i7 720QM

Mobility Radeon 5870 1GBVRAM

8GB Ram

1 X OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD

1 X 500GB HDD

17.3FHD (1080P) Panel

Blu Ray Drive (reader)

HDMI Out

Yeah I never buy high end ram because I feel like I can get a much bigger boost spending that money on something else or just more ram.

I'm sure that you can.

I think that these days it's better to spend the extra money on better Video card goodness instead of RAM. This is where you'll see significant performance gains when upgrading.

I've been buying cheaper G.Skill RipJaws 2GB DDR3-1600 sticks and have been pleased with them so far. I have 8GB in two of the PC's so far and both PC's cleaved to the Intel XMP spec coded into them and set 'their own best timings' for me.

Idea It's auto-magical! Idea

Go with G.Skill 6GB Triple Channel Memory. It's exceptionally good memory. Check out at newegg.com
