Kingston overclocks DDR3 to 2.13GHz

Posted on Sunday, March 02 2008 @ 13:21:06 CET by


Kingston showed off new the overclocking capabilities of its HyperX PC3-16000 memory modules by overclocking these modules from their standard clockspeed of 2GHz to 2.13GHz. The test was performed on a NVIDIA nForce 790i based motherboard without any additional cooling. It's unclear which latencies and voltage settings were used.
Back last year A-Data and Walton Chaintech introduced their 2GHz Vitesta DDR3-2000X and Apogee GT Blazer DDR3 2000 memory kits that could operate at 2.0GHz with 2.10V or 2.15V voltage setting. The ultra high-speed memory modules utilize 6-layer print-circuit boards, which are often used to manufacture rather expensive graphics cards and mainboards, which automatically makes such memory devices pretty expensive. In mid-February this year Corsair Memory also joined the 2GHz club with its new Dominator-series memory modules.

Back last year very few platforms could actually handle 2.0GHz memory speed and hardly all end-users who acquired such memory modules could actually make them work at their frequency. However, as Intel X48 and Nvidia nForce 790i SLI chipsets are approaching the market, it is expected that considerably more enthusiast-class platforms will be able to boast with 2.0GHz memory clock-speed.


The Kingston HyperX PC3-16000 (KHX16000D2K2/2G) modules will be available in March.
