"AMD has been collaborating with Kingston because of its market strength and expansive global distribution network," said Tim Wright, director, desktop marketing, AMD's Computation Products Group. "Kingston's HyperX line of memory modules is geared for the gaming and enthusiast audience and we are excited to have HyperX support for the AMD Athlon 64 FX processor. The combination will deliver to our shared customers the compatibility of the AMD64 architecture as well as some of the most extreme PC performance available."
As with all its products, Kingston has undergone multiple levels of rigorous testing to launch the DDR400 registered memory modules. The memory modules have also been tested on currently available platforms such as the ASUSâ SK8N motherboard, which features full support of DDR400 registered memory technology. As a result, Kingston has begun shipping limited quantities of 1GB memory kits to prepare system builders for their shipments of AMD Athlon 64 processor-based FX systems.
These modules with black heat spreaders are running at 3-3-3-8-1 and have a price of $450.
