Patriot Memory just sent us word that they're releasing a trio of new DDR3 memory kits designed for the upcoming second generation of Intel Core processor. The new memory lines include the Viper Xtreme, Division 2, and G2 series.
Patriot says both the Viper Xtreme and Division 2 lines are appropriate choices for the "extreme enthusiast looking to push the limits of DDR3 memory technology," while the G2 series is best suited for the "serious PC gamer looking for increased system performance for the gaming edge at a cost conscious price."
The two higher end kits are available in speeds up to 2133MHz with "plenty of headroom for adventurous overclocking," Patriot claims. The G2 series comes in a variety of speeds ranging from 1333MHz to 1600MHz.
Patriot Memory today announced new densities, speeds, and triple-channel kits added to its Viper Xtreme series. The new "Sector 7" tri-channel kits, as they're being called, come in both 12GB and 6GB capacities with speeds of 2000MHz and 1600MHz. Meanwhile, the new "Sector 5" dual-channel kits sport 8GB and 4GB capacities rated at 1600MHz.
"Today we introduce new speeds and capacities to our flagship heatshield design," says Les Henry, Patriot’s VP of Engineering. "Now enthusiasts using either the Intel P55 or X58 platforms have a variety of options in terms of capacity and speeds with our new high performance heatshield design. Our Viper Xtreme Series showcases our expertise in developing and delivering performance solutions for the enthusiast market."
Patriot is pretty jazzed about its "custom designed heatshield with a hefty copper insert" weighing 6 grams. According to Patriot, this design works better than traditional aluminum heatsinks.
