Kingston has taken its popular HyperX memory line and transformed it into a high-speed SO-DIMM kit for notebooks, mini-ITX motherboards, and any other mobile platforms that use fun sized DIMMs. The dual-channel, plug and play kits zip along at 1600MHz without the need for XMP profiles and was designed specifically Intel's Huron River platform.
Yo, Intel, we need to talk. Word on the Web is that you're not planning to support USB 3.0, otherwise known as SuperSpeed USB, until at least late 2011, with 2012 looking like a more realistic time frame. What the madness?
Those of us with deep pockets bit the bullet and picked up your uber expensive Core i7 980X processor, so far the only consumer six-core chip without an AMD label on it. We did it because we love technology and, well, the kids can always take out student loans, right?
And we didn't really want to go there, but we feel like you owe us after that whole BTX debacle. What are we supposed to do with a BTX case now? That's about as tough to unload on Craigslist as our RDRAM sticks (remember those?).

Huron River, which, like Calpella, will support Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, and will be based on the 32nm Sandy Bridge architecture. It will be made up of dual-and quad-core processors supporting Intel’s Turbo Boost and Hyperthreading. It will have faster integrated graphics and support for 1600MHz DDR3 memory.
Huron River options look to include a WiMAX chipset, Wireless Display support, and Bluetooth.
