First to Market with HyperX 1.25 Volts at 1600MHz; 1.35 Volts at 1866MHz.

Press release:
Kingston Technology Europe Ltd, a subsidiary of Kingston Technology Company, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of the world’s first ultra-low voltage memory running at 1.25 volts at 1600MHz. The new offering is part of the new Kingston® ‘LoVo’ (low voltage) HyperX® DDR3 High-Performance memory product line. The dual-channel kit (Kingston part #: KHX1866C9D3LK2/4GX) comes preprogrammed with two XMP-ready profiles: 1.25 volts at 1600MHz and 1.35 volts at 1866MHz. The latter profile is also a world’s first for speed matching higher frequency with a lower voltage.

“Kingston Technology is proud to lead the charge with memory for the new generation of energy efficient systems that yield higher performance,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. “Energy-conscious consumers need to look no further for memory than the HyperX ‘LoVo’ line when they are assembling the components needed to achieve better PC power performance.”

The flagship product, running an ultra-low 1.25 volts at 1600MHz, is the lowest voltage to date for desktop PCs. In all, Kingston Technology is debuting three Kingston HyperX DDR3 dual-channel products in the ‘LoVo’ line: the dual-profile kit, a mainstream low voltage 1600MHz, 1.35 volt kit and an ultra-low voltage 1333MHz, 1.25 volt kit. Kingston Technology tested all three kits to great success on the Asus P7P55D EVO motherboard. All of the memory offerings are designed for use in eco-friendly PCs as systems delivering higher performance while using smaller energy footprints become reality.
