Kingston Claims "World's Fastest Memory" Crown

Paul Lilly

Kingston on Monday announced it has developed the fastest Intel-certified memory in the world. The company's referring to its HyperX dual-channel DDR3 memory kit rated at 2400MHz, and a quick glance at Newegg shows that it trumps anything else available, just barely edging out G.Skill's fastest offering .

Kingston's newest kit boats 9-11-9-27-2N timings at 1.65V, a smidgen tighter than G.Skill's PIS Series DDR3-2400 kit, which checks in at 9-11-9-28-2N. Unlike the G.Skill kit, however, Kingston's DIMMs join select company on Intel's list of certified RAM for Core i7 processors, having been certified for use on Gigabyte's GA-P55A-UD4P. If a certification list is the sort of thing that matters to you, then it's probably worth noting that the next fastest kit on the list is Corsair's DDR3-2333 memory.

"As will all Kingston memory, the 2400MHz kit was created with the highest design-engineering principles and subjected to OEM-quality production and testing standards to gain Intel XMP certification," Kingston said.

Look for this kit to be available sometime in Q2. No word yet on price.
