Assuming you decide to build a new PC around Intel's Sandy Bridge-E platform or upgrade your existing rig to X79, one thing you won't have to worry about is finding quad-channel memory kits. Plenty of memory makers have stepped to the plate with four and eight DIMM kits, including Kingston, which launched a range of quad-channel HyperX Genesis DDR3 kits in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities.
There are ten new kits in all, starting with an 8GB package of DDR3-1333 memory for $65, and going all the way up to a 32GB kit of DDR3-1600 for $218. The most expensive memory kit is actually a 16GB package of DDR3-2133 RAM that's priced at $318.
"Our latest HyperX offerings are specifically made to maximize performance in Intel's new Core i7 3960X or 3930K processors with quad-channel memory support," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. "HyperX Genesis for the X79 platform will scale new overclocking heights for extreme gamers, benchmarkers, content creators and enthusiasts."
