With the launch of Core i7 just around the corner, Kingston has joined the triple channel DDR3 bandwagon releasing a full-lineup of kits which all sport XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) support and will operate at their rated speeds using no more than 1.65v, which Intel states as being within Bloomfields safe zone.

Fountain Valley, CA -- October 29, 2008 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is first to ship 2GHz memory in triple-channel configuration designed specifically for the new Intel-based X58 motherboards. Kingston's HyperX® DDR3 2GHz memory, available now, come in kits of three 1GB modules that are Intel® XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) ready meeting the Core i7 1.65 volt platform recommendation.

"Kingston is excited to bring the fastest DDR3 triple channel memory products to market as we are the first to deliver 2000MHz gaming kits of three with Intel's reduced voltage," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston®. "All of our triple-channel kits can be overclocked manually or by using XMP-ready profiles. The 2GHz modules have been tested to support up to that speed on ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboards while the Intel DX58SO motherboards have been tested up to 1600MHz."

In addition to the top-of-the-line 2000MHz, Kingston's family of triple-channel kits include 1866- and 1800MHz, and low-latency 1600- and 1375MHz speeds. Kingston ValueRAM® kits of three are also available in 1333MHz and 1066MHz, in 1- and 2GB capacities.

what is the difference between the value ram vs. the XMP?
The 6g value ram at 1333 is $240 while the 3g XMP ram is 1375 at 190.
(I know value ram is the cheaper type, but I don't get why they are cheaper - what is the compromise?)

thanks!

The compromise is that they aren't "optimized". Cheaper quality and possibly different chips
