Kingston Ships HyperX DDR3-2666 Dual-Channel Memory Kits

Le 11 mars 2014, 07:41 dans Humeurs 0

Kingston Technology started shipping its HyperX dual-channel DDR3 memory kits optimized for Intel Core "Ivy Bridge" platform, some of which come with profiles for speeds as high as DDR3-2666 MHz. The company also announced XMP certification of its upcoming HyperX DDR3-2800 MHz kit by Intel.


Among the five new kits launched today, are the HyperX T1 KHX26C11T1K2/8X, HyperX T1 KHX24C11T1K2/8X, HyperX T1 KHX21C11T1K2/16X, HyperX T1 KHX21C11T1K2/8X, and HyperX Blu KHX16C10B1K2/16X.

TheKHX26C11T1K2/8X, the star-attraction in this article, comes with advertised clock speed of DDR3-2666 MHz, and is optimized for Intel Core "Ivy Bridge" processors (probably because of its XMP v1.4 profile, which is not supported on older Sandy Bridge LGA1155 platform). It utilizes tall HyperX T1 heatsinks that help sustain its advertised speeds. It consists of two 4 GB modules that make up its 8 GB capacity. The modules achieve DDR3-2666 MHz (1333 MHz actual), with CAS latency of 11T, and DRAM voltage of 1.65V, which is particularly high for the newer breed of20 nm-class DRAM. Kingstong kept the pricing under the wraps.

TheKHX24C11T1K2/8X (2x 4 GB),KHX21C11T1K2/16X (2x 8 GB), and KHX21C11T1K2/8X (2x 4 GB) also utilize the HyperX T1 heatsink design as pictured above. They pack XMP v1.4 profiles for DDR3-2400 MHz, DDR3-2133 MHz, and DDR3-2133 MHz, respectively. All three operate at their advertised speeds with a CAS latency of 11T. While theKHX24C11T1K2/8X operates at a DRAM voltage of 1.65V, theKHX21C11T1K2/16X,KHX21C11T1K2/8X make do with 1.60V.

Lastly, theres theKHX16C10B1K2/16X, which comes with lighter HyperX Blu heatspreaders, packs two 8 GB modules that total 16 GB, and come with JEDEC profile of DDR3-1600 MHz (800 MHz actual), with CAS latency of 10T, and DRAM voltage of 1.50V.

The HyperX T1 KHX24C11T1K2/8X, HyperX T1 KHX21C11T1K2/16X, HyperX T1 KHX21C11T1K2/8X, and HyperX Blu KHX16C10B1K2/16X are priced at US $89.99, $219.99, $74.99, and $129.99, respectively.

Kingston Shipping Out Intel Based SSDNow E & M Series

Le 11 mars 2014, 07:41 dans Humeurs 0


Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announced today it is shipping the first two products in its SSDNow line of solid-state drives (SSD) with the SSDNow E Series and SSDNow M Series. Kingston is targeting its SSDs to Fortune 1000 companies and select vertical markets. The SSDNow E Series is specifically designed for the enterprise server environment while the SSDNow M Series is built for the road warrior who demands ultimate performance from a notebook PC. The Kingston SSDNow E and M Series use Intel’s solid-state drives, which are the best-performing drives on the market.

“We are thrilled to enter the solid-state drive market with our SSDNow E and M Series SSDs. The combination of the fastest SSDs in the world along with Kingston’s tremendous distribution capabilities and legendary customer service will position us to succeed in this arena,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Product Manager, APAC Region, Kingston. “The performance capabilities of these first two offerings are off the charts and our enterprise customers will be very pleased to use them in servers and corporate laptop computers.”

The SSDNow E and M series drives create greater return on investment through increased performance due to impressive input and output operations per second (IOPS). The SSDNow E Series’ higher IOPS means enterprises need significantly fewer SSDs compared to standard hard disk drives (HDD), which also leads to energy savings in a server environment. The SSDNow M Series high IOPS allows for faster boot times and quicker application load times which help mobile power users become even more productive.

Kingston’s SSDNow uses a standard SATA hard disk drive interface but unlike an HDD, they are very rugged and can withstand shock and extreme environments as there are no moving parts. Kingston’s SSDNow E and M Series drives are equipped with S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to monitor the integrity and reliability of the drives. The drives are backed by a three-year warranty and free tech support.

Kingston SSDNow M and E Series Features and Specifications:

Fast: SSDNow E Series: 250MB/sec. read, 170MB/sec. write; SSDNow M Series: 250MB/sec. read, 70MB/sec. write Durable: no moving mechanical parts, enabling the SSD to handle rougher conditions Guaranteed: backed by a three-year Kingston warranty, free tech support Form factor: 2.5" Interface: SATA 1.5 Gb/sec. and 3.0 Gb/sec. Capacity**: SSDNow E Series: 32GB; SSDNow M Series 80GB Storage temperatures: -55° C to 95° C Operating temperatures: 0° C to 70° C Dimensions: SSDNow E Series: 69.85mm x 100mm x 7mm; SSDNow M Series: 69.85mm x 100mm x 9.5mm Weight: SSDNow E Series: 80 grams (+/- 2 grams); SSDNow M Series: 86 grams (+/- 2 grams) IOPS (Input and Output Operations Per Second): SSDNow E Series: Random 4K read: 35K; Random 4K write: 3.3K Vibration operating: 2.17 G (7–800Hz) Vibration non-operating: 3.13 G (10–500Hz) Power specs***: SSDNow E Series: Active: 2.4 W TYP; Sleep: 0.06 W TYP; SSDNow M Series: Active: 0.15 W; Sleep 0.06 W TYP Life expectancy: SSDNow E Series: 2 million hours mean time before failure; SSDNow M Series: 1.2 million hours mean time before failure Operating shock: 1,000 G/0.5 msec operating and non-operating

Fountain Valley, CA -- November 12, 2008 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is shipping select DDR3 and DDR2 HyperX® memory modules with new T1 heatspreaders. The taller heatspreaders utilize HyperX Thermal Xchange (HTX) technology to further diffuse heat buildup when overclocking. HTX technology is the latest innovation from Kingston’s engineers who are dedicated to building the fastest memory for enthusiasts who push system performance.

“The HyperX T1 Series heatspreaders are made of heavy-duty extruded aluminum with extended fins and HTX technology for maximum thermal conditions when users take their systems to the extreme,” said Dara Sun, product manager, Kingston®. “Any gamer or overclocker who intends to dominate with memory will want to use Kingston’s T1 series, which is a great complement to our existing line of HyperX modules with the lower profile heatsink.”

Leading with HyperX DDR3 kits designed specifically for Intel’s new triple-channel Core i7 Processor in 2GHz, 1866- and 1800MHz frequencies, Kingston’s new HyperX T1 series modules are also available in DDR2 1066- and 800MHz front side bus speeds.
