Kingston 2400MHz DDR3 'World's Fastest Memory'

Kingston today announced it has developed what it claims is the fastest Intel-certified memory in the world. How fast, you ask? 2400 MHz.

Kingston's speedy HyperX dual-channel DDR3 memory kit (given the charming model name KHX2400C9D3T1K2/4GX) has Intel' XMP certification on the Core i7 platform.

Those who like to tweak their memory will like to know that the 2400 MHz kit runs at 9-11-9-27-2 timings at 1.65 volts as tested on several P55-based systems including the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard.

The 2400 MHz kits will be available sometime in the second quarter.

Update: Our apologies. The wrong photo was used, which was for Skulltrail memory. The correct photo is now in place.

    A pc system would have to be overclocked to make full use of the memory. In addition the extra tall memory heatspreaders can be a royal pain. Sometimes they interfere with the large tower style cpu heatsinks.

    What happened to the Team Group 2400MHz CAS9 modules? O.o

    Although I have to admit, those heatspreaders look awesome. :)

    That's amazing that it can run at those speeds and still stay at 1.65 volts!

    If the price is right then it looks like it's time for an upgrade!

    9-11-9-27 ? Meh.. I know Kingston can do better than that =)

    Id rather spend my cash on lower CAS modules even if they are rated at 2000Mhz. Would be nice to see a benchmark though..

    It may not have a Hemi but I know some fanboys that'll get a semi.
