Fountain Valley, CA (July 12, 2007) Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the
independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is first to
market with ultra low-latency PC3 1375MHz DDR3 HyperX memory modules,
driving memory benchmarking and gaming further and faster than ever before.
"Our new HyperX DDR3 ultra low latency modules give early adopters and
performance enthusiasts the opportunity to push their DDR3 motherboards as
far as current memory technology will allow," said Mark Tekunoff, senior

In its second foray into the DDR3 overclocking market, Kingston's ultra
low-latency 1375MHz, CL5 product is the first production DDR3 module to
achieve CL5 at PC11000 frequencies (1375MHz) giving the performance
conscious consumer another option when building their next gaming rig.
"Lower CAS latencies deliver better performance without driving thermal
conditions that would require extra cooling in a system," noted Tekunoff.
"As a high volume production company, Kingston's goal is to launch true
production memory that can run at full speed in normal dual channel, dual
