This kit includes four 2GB modules giving 8GB of total system memory. Kingston says the T1 is the first 8GB kit in the world to gain Intel P67 certification. The memory is Intel ‘XMP’ compatible and runs at a frequency of 2,133MHz.
Kingston’s second announcement also involves Sandy Bridge memory. The company’s 8GB 2,133-MHz HyperX memory kits have received Intel XMP certification for the P67 Sandy Bridge platform. According to Kingston, the HyperX kits are the first 8GB kits to be validated for use with Sandy Bridge. These kits are shipping immediately, with a price of $299.99 list.
“The modern design and look accentuates the new black and grey P67 motherboards just reaching the market,” said Stephane Rizzetto, EMEA product development manager of DRAM at Kingston Technology. “With performance memory frequency initially at 2133MHz and 1600MHz, these new additions to the family of HyperX products meet the demands of everyone from the enthusiast vying for the fastest benchmark score to the weekend gamer.”
