Kingston Joins Triple-Channel Memory Party, First Out the Door with 2GHz Modules

Paul Lilly

With Intel's Core i7 launch now less than a month away, several memory vendors are readying three-packs of RAM in anticipation of the new platform's triple-channel memory support. Companies like Corsair, OCZ, and G.Skill have all jumped on board, but Kingston looks to leapfrog to the front of the pack as the first, and so far only company to release triple-channel memory clocked at 2GHz.

"Kingston is excited to bring the fastest DDR3 triple-channel memory products to market as we are the first to deliver 2000MHz gaming kits of three with Intel's reduced voltage," said Mark Tekunoff , senior technology manager at Kingston. "All of our triple-channel kits can be overclocked manually or by using XMP-ready profiles."

Kingston's triple channel memory kits will run the gamut from the aforementioned 2GHz enthusiast range all the way down to the company's ValueRAM lineup:

  • 3GB ValueRAM kit 1066MHz, CL7-7-7, 1.5V (KVR1066D3N7K3/3G) - $132
