Kingston shows off 1375MHz DDR3

— 5:00 AM on June 11, 2007

COMPUTEX — I met up with the guys at Kingston last week, and they showed me their new DDR3-1375 (PC3-11000) HyperX memory kit.

The kit packs two 1GB modules, and it's rated for operation at 1375MHz with 7-7-7-20 timings and a voltage setting of 1.7V. As for overclocking, Kingston tells us the kit has managed a respectable 1520MHz in its labs.

Kingston's official list price is $518 for the kit, but it expects actual retail pricing to dip below that. For users who don't want to spend nearly that much, Kingston has also launched a 2GB DDR3-1066 ValueRAM kit that's a slightly more affordable $443. Both kits are immediately available.

Kingston also had a new flash memory stick to show us. This model is called the DataTraveler style. It will be available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB models, all of which will have a retractable USB plug and a changeable "skin" as evidenced in the picture. The stick will come with some default pictures, but users will also be able to make their own custom designs through Kingston's site. In addition, the stick will be bundled with Migo synchronization software, a solution that automates the process of transferring bookmarks and settings across PCs. Availability is scheduled for July.
