Kingston Technology, the world's largest memory manufacturer, has today taken the covers off an interesting new memory product for notebook users.


Say hello to Kingston's DDR2-667 SO-DIMM notebook memory. You can pick it up in 2GB or 4GB kits with timings of 4-4-4-12 at 1.8 volts. The memory company claims it is the perfect solution for notebook users wanting to upgrade from a slower 1GB or 2GB kit.


They also claim these speeds are programmed into SPD, so there are no BIOS adjustments or overclocking needed.


Hsinchu, Taiwan - April 21, 2008 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is first to offer high performance, low-latency DDR2-667 SO-DIMM notebook memory to the world. Offering greater performance options for existing mobile platforms, the HyperX DDR2-667 CL4 SO-DIMM kits in 2GB and 4GB capacities are the first in a new line of memory innovations Kingston plans to release over the next few months to the notebook market.


"Kingston customers asked about higher performance memory for current notebooks and our new DDR2-667 CL4 low-latency SO-DIMMs are the first in a series of new HyperX memory offerings to support this market," said Ann Bai, Product Manager, DRAM Memory, APAC Region, Kingston. "We will continue to expand the product line, including developing a 3GB memory kit."
