Kingston Gets RAM Validated On Intel's Core i5

It may not be here as soon as we'd like it (you know, like yesterday), but Intel's Core i5 platform is definitely on the way. If you needed just one more modicum of proof, have a look at the latest blast from Kingston. Today, one of the mainstays in the memory industry announced that a pair of its 1333MHz DDR3 offerings have already been validated by Intel for "use in its upcoming Core i5 systems."

We hate to read too far between the lines, but if Intel is already validating memory for its Core i5 platform, then Core i5 must be at least decently close to release, right? At any rate, the lucky modules in question are Kingston part numbers KVR1333D3S9/1G and 2G, both of which cleared hurdles on Intel's P55 Express Chipset using the 'Clarksfield' mobile processor. Of note, Kingston's 1333MHz DDR3 non-ECC KVR1333D3N9/1G module was also validated on the same chipset using the 'Lynnfield' CPU. Okay Intel, we've got the mainboard, and now the RAM--can we get the rest sometime soon, please?
