Memory maker Super Talent have released a new series of DDR3 modules this week, starting with the W1333UB2G8 kit. This kit comprises a couple of 1GB sticks rated for 1333MHz speeds with timings of 8-8-8-18.

However, the most exciting is their two DDR3-1600 kits. The best of the two happens to run fantastic timings (as far as DDR3 goes for now) at 7-7-7-18 with 1.8V, very nice indeed for 1600MHz modules. Then there's the other 1600MHz rated kit, operating with slightly looser (but still quite reasonable) latencies of 9-9-9-21.

Another highlight of the new family is the introduction of a 2GB DDR3 module, up until now I hadn't spotted a 2GB DDR3 module yet (only 2x1GB kits). This module is designed to operate at up to 1333MHz with 8-8-8-18 timings at 1.8V.

Price wise, it's not surprising this early in the picture that they're touching the sky. The single 2GB (W1333UB2G8) module will retail for a whopping $417. So if you're rubbing your hands in glee at the thought of 4GB DDR3 on your P35, you'll need to cough up $834 first!

The official pricing on the flagship W1600UX2G7 2GB kit is $648, with the looser latency 2GB kit coming in at $598.
