Kingston Launches Low Latency Notebook Memory

Kingston Technology First to Launch High Performance Ultra Low-Latency DDR2 Notebook Memory

Innovative HyperX SO-DIMMs Infuse More Performance into Laptop Systems--Without Overclocking

Fountain Valley, CA -- September 3, 2008 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is first to release high performance, ultra low-latency 800MHz notebook memory. Shipping immediately in 4GB memory kits, the HyperX® PC2-6400 CL4 SO-DIMMs offer the additional benefit of Serial Presence Detect (SPD) capabilities to provide performance benefits to a wider array of notebooks.


"As more notebook systems standardize on faster 800MHz platforms, particularly the Intel Centrino 2 chipsets, Kingston engineers designed the high- performance, ultra low-latency HyperX SO-DIMMs to support them -- right out of the box,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston®. "The new SO-DIMMs offer flexible upgrade options with their ability to enhance many existing systems -- boosting 800- and 667MHz platforms with the faster performing CL4/CL3 ultra low-latency SO-DIMMs.”

The new HyperX mobile memory is a perfect fit for notebook users who want to boost system performance by replacing standard notebook memory with high performance modules that boot to the highest speed possible -- without adjusting system BIOS settings.  Targeting new P45/Centrino 2 laptops the 800MHz CL4 modules have two pre-programmed ultra low-latency profiles: DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-12 @1.8V and DDR2-667 CL3-4-4-10 @1.8V.
