Today we have something very special for review, one of the very few early samples of an upcoming kit developed by Kingston specifically for Intel’s Sandybridge platform – a new certified 8GB HyperX bundle which runs at a very tasty 2133mhz.
Kingston might not always come to mind first when considering high performance memory for a new system, but KitGuru has been impressed with all the samples we have received in the last year. In preparation for this review during the week, we found some interesting statistics which might surprise many people … they managed to hold a staggering 45.8% marketshare in 2010.
Today we are reviewing the upcoming KHX2133C9AD3T1FK4/8GX kit rated at 2133mhz CL9-11-9-27 timings @ 1.65 volts and which features a seperate cooling fan.
Does performance memory really make a difference with a Sandybridge system, in the real world? Today we will find out.
“The new 8GB HyperX memory kits were designed to push the memory boundaries of the new P67 motherboards in both speed and capacity,” said Stephane Rizzetto, EMEA product development manager of DRAM, Kingston Technology. “Our 2133MHz T1 modules featuring the signature tall heat-spreaders passed the rigorous testing requirements both in-house and at Intel to achieve XMP certification. This is the perfect kit for enthusiasts who want to maximize performance from the new Sandy Bridge platform.”
