Kingston has announced the first 12GB triple channel DDR3 HyperX RAM kit for the Intel Core i7 platform. The memory runs at 1600Mhz and includes three 4GB RAM modules clad in the familiar Kingston Blue and silver HyperX heat spreaders.
Kingston says that the 12GB kit is the largest kit of HyperX triple channel RAM available and that kits are also available in 3GB and 6GB capacities. Other HyperX triple-channel kits are available in up to 2GHz frequencies. The big (really big) downside to the new Kingston Ra/m kit is that it costs $1400.
“Kingston was first to release 2GHz kits and has continued to lead the memory charge with more DDR3 offerings since Intel created the triple-channel architecture,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston®. “Our latest kit of three was tested with great success on the Asus P6T Deluxe motherboard and runs at a speedy 1600MHz to take full advantage of the memory controller on the Core i7 processor for unmatched performance.”
