A couple of announcements from Kingston have surfaced in the land down under today, the first of which outlines two new additions to their high performance "HyperX" line of memory modules. These come in at two speeds of DDR 2 1000MHz (PC2-8000) and DDR2 1066MHz (PC2-8500), unfortunately the DDR2 1066MHz modules are only available in 512MB capacities (or a 1GB kit) at the moment, whereas the DDR 2 1000MHz modules can be had as 1GB sticks (or 2GB dual channel kits).

For full details, grab the announcement here.

"This is a significant launch for Kingston to bring a series of cutting-edge memory technology to the high-end computing and games market," said Marites Bairstow, Regional Manager, Kingston Technology. ."This new array of HyperX products is ideal for the latest up and coming DDR2-based solutions."

"These new modules are a perfect blend of speed and ultimate performance. With the recently released 800MHz low latency modules, the Kingston family is now expanding to include 1000MHz and the super-fast 1066MHz," Ms Bairstow added.

A seperate announcement from Kingston also highlights their new fully buffered (or FB-DIMM) modules for Intel server platforms. These are DDR2 667MHz modules and will fully support the new Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor-based server platforms.

More details here.

As the leading independent manufacturer of memory modules, Kingston has made a strategic decision to continue committing major resources to support next-generation memory technology. As a result, Kingston has become the leading manufacturer and supplier of FB-DIMM memory to Intel and the industry.

Kingston's new FB-DIMM modules are a high speed, high density memory solution for related technology workstation and server platforms.
