Intel not only knows how to push its own technologies, but also how to push the market forward; this with the exception of the RDRAM debacle, but let's not dwell on that now. For the last five years Intel has not only managed to get its feet back on the ground with the Core micro architecture, but they've also managed to steer the course of memory technology as they'd originally hoped.
While DDR wasn't their ultimate aim, it really helped them move along and this led to Intel introducing the DDR2 memory standard, first on their Express series chipsets and now DDR3 with their 3 and 4 series chipsets as well as their new Core i7 processors. And it's not long 'till AMD follows suit with AM3 (a DDR3 supporting architecture) soon to emerge; so it's bye bye DDR2 very soon.
With that said, memory technology has advanced so far, it's becoming ridiculous. Only a few years ago 1GB was the holy grail, yet today we are seeing 4GB and beyond become the standard, especially with Core i7. 3GB and 6GB kits are coming in thick and fast thanks to its triple channel memory controller.
Many companies have already jumped in with triple channel kits for Core i7 and so far we have reviewed about five different kits. Today we are adding another to the list of oncoming tri-channel kits. Kingston, a long time partner in memory has shot us their latest memory kit comprising of three DDR3 1333MHz memory modules with 2GB density per module; a total of 6GB. We will today pit it against our Corsair 6GB benchmark modules to see just how well Kingston's memory fairs.
