    Kingston today announced it has developed what it claims is the fastest Intel-certified memory in the world. How fast, you ask? 2400 MHz.

    Kingston's speedy HyperX dual-channel DDR3 memory kit (given the charming model name KHX2400C9D3T1K2/4GX) has Intel' XMP certification on the Core i7 platform.

    Those who like to tweak their memory will like to know that the 2400 MHz kit runs at 9-11-9-27-2 timings at 1.65 volts as tested on several P55-based systems including the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard.

    The 2400 MHz kits will be available sometime in the second quarter.

    Update: Our apologies. The wrong photo was used, which was for Skulltrail memory. The correct photo is now in place.

    arre rofl that is not that fastest memory in the market....have you heard of xdr ram ?

    http://vr-zone.com/articles/elpida-produces-world-s-fastest-7.2ghz-xdr-dram/6471.html?doc=6471

    TOKYO, JAPAN, January 20, 2009 – Elpida Memory, Inc. (Elpida), Japan's leading global supplier of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM), today introduced the industry's first 1-Gigabit XDR™ DRAM based on a x32-bit configuration. The new XDR product features the industry's fastest ultra-high speed of 7.2GHz, which is faster than any GDDR5 memory chip, and provides a data transfer rate of 28.8 Gigabytes per second with a single device, making it an ideal choice for such high-bandwidth, high-performance full HD-capable applications as game consoles, digital televisions and Blu-ray disc recorders.

    "Today's consumer electronics require both high performance and superior power efficiency," said Sharon Holt, senior vice president, Licensing and Marketing at Rambus. "Elpida's leadership with the award-winning XDR memory architecture makes possible a range of great products for consumers to enjoy."

    The XDR device is manufactured using Elpida's 65nm process technology and utilizes a 1.5V low voltage operation and an x32-bit interface. It provides a one-chip solution that, compared with two x16-bit configuration 512 Megabit XDR DRAMs, consumes 35-40% less power and requires less space.

    "In today's era of digital convergence many existing digital consumer electronic appliances are connecting to the Internet and the use of high compression codecs like H.264/AVC is spreading. This means there is now even more demand for greater bandwidth and higher density memory," said Yoshitaka Kinoshita, Elpida Memory's executive officer in charge of the Mobile & Digital Consumer Division. "Our newly developed 1-Gigabit XDR provides incredibly high bandwidth with lower operating power to meet the systems needs of our customers. Elpida will continue to focus on reducing the power consumption of XDR DRAMs, which we believe can also lead to tremendous application potential in portable devices."

    Sample shipments of the new XDR have already started and mass production is scheduled to begin in April 2009.

    As a top supplier of XDR DRAM, Elpida continues to specialize in developing high-performance, low-power XDR products.

    @ NoasArcAngel - May be XDR is the "fastest" but as of now can you tell me about a consumer grade device which has used XDR memory chips.

    On the other hand the DDR3 fastest memory chip is ready to ship ... so availability and usability wise it's the fastest DDR3 ram for motherboards :p

    @ Deblopper - thanks for the appreciation :p

    dude XDR2RAM is the fastest... i did not want to mention it because it would put other's at shame :lol: also you asked about what consumer grade devices use XDR RAM...

    Here is the list :

    1. Sony PS3

    2. ALL new-generation HDTV's including plasma's and LCD AND LED LCD TV, they all use xdr-ram for processing


    i thought you knew.... :cry:

    The OP more to the point, probably meant it for modules, which end consumers can go and purchase. Not really for embedded systems. Ok, the XDR2RAM is the fastest, but it is not available to mount on our PCs. Well not yet.
