When hearing the words "low-latency memory," one tends to think of tricked-out enthusiast rigs with windowed cases and LED fans. Well, the folks at Kingston are trying to break that connotation with a new batch of low-latency notebook DDR2 memory.
Kingston has set up its new HyperX PC2-6400 SO-DIMMs with two clock and latency profiles: 800MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings and 667MHz with 3-4-4-10 timings, both at the standard 1.8V voltage. The modules have already begun shipping, and they'll be available in the form of 4GB dual-module kits priced at $257—not exactly cheap even by mobile memory standards, but not outlandish compared to DDR3 SO-DIMM prices.
Speaking of DDR3, Kingston claims it's "targeting new P45/Centrino 2 laptops" with the new kit. We should point out that the mobile P45 supports both DDR2 and DDR3 memory, and that many Centrino 2 notebook makers seem to be going with DDR3. Perhaps the kit will find more fans among users of older notebooks, though.
