23rd June, 2008 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced its HyperX 1800MHz DDR3 memory has been certified under the Intel Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP) validation program to offer PC builders and gaming enthusiasts more performance memory options and tuning flexibility when constructing high-performance systems using select Intel X38/X48-series chipsets.

“Customers building or upgrading Intel XMP-ready systems now have an 1800MHz HyperX XMP memory option to gain higher performance in their gaming and content creation systems,” said Marc Bernier, European research and development engineer, Kingston Technology. “Many of our motherboard partners, including ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte, have released XMP-ready offerings that can take immediate advantage of HyperX XMP-certified memory on current X38 and X48 platforms. We expect this also to be true for the soon to be released P45 chipsets.”

When paired with select Intel X38/X48 series-based motherboards, Kingston HyperX modules (designated with an ‘X’ at the end of the part number) increase overall system performance. Designed for both the novice and experienced overclocker, the XMP profile allows for easy overclocking selection through predefined profiles in the BIOS or manual adjustment of Kingston HyperX XMP modules’ frequency and timings.
