PNY Adds 2133MHz and 1866MHz XLR8 Memory

The 2133 MHz memory comes with red aluminum heat spreaders and 9-12-11-27 timings, while the 1866 MHz version gets black heat spreaders and 9-12-9-27 timings. Both types include PNY's lifetime warranty.

Prices begin at $60 for the 8 GB 1866 MHz kit as well as $90 for the 8 GB 2133 MHz kit and top out at $125 for the 16 GB 1866 MHz and $180 for the 2133 MHz variant. PNY is also offering a lower end 1600 MHz version, which is offered for $90 MSRP for a 16 GB kit.

"Operating speeds of 1600MHz and greater have become the sought after memory for gamer consumers and we're broadening our range of high-performance XLR8 memory to hit gamers at every level," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PC components for PNY. "The 16GB DDR3 2133MHz kit is now the highest capacity and fastest memory in our line-up, offering the extreme performance that the games of today demand. In addition, all of our new memory kits are great compliments to PNY's line of XLR8 Gaming graphics cards."

    $60 for 2x 4GB 1866 and $125 for 4x 4GB GB 1866. That doesn't add up:)

    9-12-9-27 timing. That's a bit high, isn't it?

    Ragnar-KonI essentially stopped buying PNY after getting two DOA video cards, 3 DOA memory kits, and a DOA flash drive from them.But given that they have put lifetime warranties on these memory kits, it seems they seems that they have improved their quality (or are at least trying to) leaps and bounds since I last bought from them back in 2003.


    I also had PNY on my blacklist after seeing the firsthand experience of two of their GPUs' fans dying within months in a friend's computer, and then refusing replacement or refund because the GPUs were no longer in stock.

    It would be so nice if Tomshardware reviewed companies' technical/customer support.
