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."
