Kingston 1500MHz DDR3 memory at Computex

Within a couple of weeks we can expect lots of news coming from Computex 2007 in Taiwan.

Our colleagues from OCW already heard that Kingston is going to show off new memory modules at Computex. This includes the company's new ultra-low latency HyperX DDR2 800MHz modules but we can also expect 1500MHz DDR3 modules.
Expected to be twice as fast as today’s highest speed DDR2 memory, DDR3's greater bandwidth is a perfect match for systems using dual and quad core processors. The lower voltage of DDR3 (moving to 1.5v versus 1.8v with DDR2) provides a more efficient memory solution for both mobile and server platforms.

Initially launching in 512MB and 1GB capacity modules as well as 1- and 2GB memory kits, the new Kingston HyperX and ValueRAM DDR3 1066MHz modules are the cutting edge of memory technology. Kingston is currently sampling modules in limited quantities in capacities up to 1GB to support the next generation computer platforms shipping later in 2007.
