STORAGE VENDOR Kingston has launched its Hyperx Genesis memory kits specifically engineered for Intel's Sandy Bridge E processors and the X79 chipset.
The Hyperx Genesis DDR3 memory modules offer speeds ranging between 1333MHz and 2400MHz and kits of 8GB, 16GB or 32GB. The memory is designed to go with the quad memory channels of the latest Sandy Bridge E processors.
"Our latest HyperX offerings are specifically made to maximize performance in Intel's new Core i7-3960X or -3930K processors with quad-channel memory support," said Stephane Rizzetto, product development manager of DRAM at Kingston. "HyperX Genesis for the X79 platform will scale new overclocking heights for extreme gamers, benchmarkers, content creators and enthusiasts."
The 32GB kit consists of eight 1600MHz modules whilst the 16GB and 8GB kits are made up of four modules each. Prices range from £39.07 to £190.07 with a price for the 8GB 2400MHz kit still to be revealed. The faster and larger the memory is, the higher the price.
Kingston said the Hyperx Genesis kits come with Intel XMP certification and will be compatible with X79 motherboards. Some of these have eight memory DIMM sockets such as MSI's line that it announced yesterday. µ
