Kingston cranks memory speed to 800MHz

'Holy Grail' for gamers.

Memory chip manufacturer Kingston Technology has begun volume production of its ultra low-latency DDR2 800MHz HyperX memory modules.

Available immediately, the company claims that the new modules are the fastest performing memory available.

"In lowering the latency even more, going to 3-3-3 with our new HyperX ultra low latency 800MHz DDR2 modules, Kingston is offering gaming and tech enthusiasts the flexibility to drive performance and benchmarking scores to the limit," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager at Kingston.

"Gamers and reviewers have been waiting for memory vendors to achieve the 'holy grail' of 800MHz 3-3-3 and they wait no more."

Squeezing a little more performance out of current DDR2 technology, Kingston achieved what it claims to be the highest performance gaming memory without over-clocking memory bus frequencies.

The ultra low-latency HyperX is shipping in 512MB and 1GB modules as well as 1GB and 2GB memory kits.
