Kingston releases new plug and play memory modules28 April 2011 09:14:02
A new series of memory modules has been released by Kingston to supplement the manufacturer's extensive range of memory cards and USB memory sticks.
The HyperX Plug and Play (PnP) series makes use of the latest Intel Core i5 and i7 'Sandy Bridge' CPUs.
When used with this technology, the new memory modules will automatically run at either 1600MHz or 1866MHz in both desktop and notebook PCs.
Users need simply to plug the memory module in and turn on the machine, as the system automatically recognises faster memory speed without needing to change settings.
In addition, the modules are backwards compatible with previously released DDR3 systems on the market.
"The HyperX engineering team has been thoroughly innovative in designing a memory module that automatically raises performance with no overclocking steps required," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager at Kingston.
"By using JEDEC-compliant settings to create performance timings, enthusiasts can max out native frequencies on current Sandy Bridge systems and older DDR3 machines."
Earlier this month, Kingston unveiled a new government-level secure USB memory stick.
