Fountain Valley, CA (May 23, 2006), KingstonÂ® Technology Company, Inc.,
the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release
of DDR2 800-MHz (PC2-6400) ValueRAMÂ® memory modules to support select socket
AM2 desktop processors. Kingston's new DDR2 800-MHz ValueRAM modules are

support DDR2 800-MHz modules. "Kingston's longstanding relationship with AMD
allows us to introduce high performance memory technology and bring our

ideal high performance computing PCs for customers' desktop and workstation
applications," added Tekunoff.
