Computex 08: When fast isn’t good enough


Kingston was showing off DDR3 memory with support for both Intel’s XMP and Nvidia’s SLI memory overclocking technology at its booth. Both kits were up and running at 2GHz in live demos.

It looks like it’s not a big deal for the memory manufacturers to produce suitable memory for both standards and we can’t imagine that there’s much that differs between the two standards in terms of what the memory manufacturers have to do to produce either type.

 

The SLI modules go under the name of KHX160003K2/2GN, which tells us that these modules are part of Kingston’s HyperX range. At 2GHz the latency is set to 9-9-9-27 for these modules.

We didn’t manage to snag a screenshot of the XMP modules, as it seems that we weretold to photograph the wrong system. Either which way, the XMP modules aren’t officially 2GHz, as the model name is KHX14400D3K2/2GX, which gives you a clock speed of 1800MHz, but with a lower latency of 8-8-8-24 which gives you enough headroom to push these modules to 2GHz with higher latencies.

The XMP modules are already available from Kingston and the SLI modules should follow shortly.
