<p><em>Fast HyperX 4GB Kits Available at 1.65 Volts; 8GB Kits to Come</em><br/>
<strong>Sydney, Australia</strong> – <strong>September 14, 2009</strong>
– Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory
products, today announced it is leading the charge in memory support for Intel’s
new LGA1156 Core i5 and Core i7 systems by shipping super-fast 2133MHz HyperX
running at a low 1.65 volts. The XMP-ready Kingston 4GB dual-channel 2133MHz
CL8 kit is the perfect choice for ultra-enthusiasts who are ready to take the
Intel Core i5 platform to the next level of memory overclocking performance.<br/>
“Intel has worked closely with Kingston on testing HyperX memory for use
with the Core i5 platform and P55 chipset,” said Geof Findley, Memory
Ecosystem Manager, Intel. “We’ve seen great results from all of
the Kingston memory especially the high-performance dual-channel kits. The combination
of Kingston HyperX and Core i5 utilizing the Nehalem architecture brings unsurpassed
performance for mainstream and enthusiast users.”<br/>
Kingston is shipping a family of XMP-ready HyperX products in different frequencies
to support users of all levels who want to take full advantage of the Core i5
platform. HyperX memory running at 1.65 volts are shipping in 4GB kits at 1333-,
1600-, 2000- and 2133MHz frequencies. In late September, Kingston will launch
8GB kits of two in 1333- and 1600MHz frequencies for users who wish to take
advantage of 64-bit operating systems.<br/>
“Kingston has worked with our terrific partners including Intel, Asus,
Gigabyte and MSI worldwide, to develop a series of memory kits that deliver
top-notch performance on the some of the finest motherboards being launched
this week,” said Vaughan Nankivell, Regional Manager- Australia and New
Zealand for Kingston Technology. “While the 2133MHz modules are engineered
for benchmarkers and overclockers, our recently released 1600MHz frequency is
the perfect choice for mainstream users who want to build their own rigs with
P55 motherboards and 1156-pin processors.”<br/>

followed by the module’s frequency. A complete explanation can be found
