HyperX DDR2 Memory Technology Offers Faster Speeds, Greater Bandwidths, Lower Power Consumption and Enhanced Thermal Performance for Gamers and PC Enthusiasts
Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of HyperX? DDR2 533-MHz (PC2-4300) and 675-MHz (PC2-5400) memory modules. Shipping immediately in limited quantities, Kingston? offers HyperX DDR2 modules tested to run at PC2-4300 and PC2-5400. These new HyperX DDR2 unbuffered DIMMs are available in capacities up to 1GB to support the latest generation of computer platforms (actual speed depends on various supported motherboards).
"Kingston's HyperX DDR2 memory features faster speeds of up to 675 MHz, higher data bandwidths, lower power consumption by about 50 percent, and enhanced thermal performance versus DDR," said Louis Kaneshiro, senior technology manager, Kingston. "Gamers and PC enthusiasts will achieve increased performance and better thermal conditions in their rigs from the latest HyperX offering."
Kingston designs and qualifies its HyperX line of products by careful selection of memory components that are assembled and tested for ultimate performance. The Kingston HyperX PC2-4300 modules have been tested to run at low latency timings of 3-3-3-10 and the PC2-5400 support low latency timings of 4-4-4-10. SPD timings are programmed at JEDEC standard latency timings of 4-4-4-12. The new modules also offer a range of advanced features.
HyperX DDR2 Features:
- 1.85 Volts operation, reducing power consumption by about 50 percent.
- Memory signal termination inside the memory chip ("On-Die Termination") to prevent reflected signal transmission errors.
- Operational enhancements to increase memory performance, efficiency and timing margins.
- CAS Latencies: 3 and 4
