Kingston have just announced that their new 2133mhz XMP certified memory modules have been approved (Intel XMP certification) for use on the p67 Sandy Bridge platform. The Kingston HyperX T1 kits of four are the world’s first 8GB memory kits to be validated. Intel has posted the XMP certification results at: http://www.intel.com/consumer/game/extreme-memory.htm
“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.”
Kingston first subjected the new kits to extensive testing on the Asus P8P67 PRO and Gigabyte GA-P67-UD4 motherboards in its own labs. After testing to great success, modules were then sent to Intel for validation.
Shipping immediately, the 2133MHz 8GB kits of four have a suggested price of £193 (MSRP excl. VAT).
