Kingston seems to have released two new types of HyperX DDR Memory! Kingston his new DDR466 (PC3700) and DDR500 (PC4000) are avaible in four flavors : A stick of 256MB, one of 512MB, a kit of two 256MB modules for Dual Channel and a Dual Channel version which contains two 512MB RAM modules. Both modules run at 3-4-4-8-1 (CAS Latency 3). So possible very aggresive timings are currently not possible at this speeds.
Model KHX3700/256 KHX3700/512 KHX3700K2/512 (2 - 256MB) KHX3700K2/1G (2 - 512MB)
Price $99 $187 $188 $363

Model KHX4000/256 KHX4000/512 KHX4000K2/512 (2 - 256MB) KHX4000K2/1G (2 - 512MB)
Price $112 $218 $223 $435

These prices come from the Kingston website. Like you can see this memory is not really cheap. But probally it could be very promising for overclockers, which now need to use a memory ratio of for example 3/2. With this memory it could probally run at 1:1.
