Kingston has announced the release of supposedly the world’s first ultra-low voltage memory running at 1.25 volts at 1600MHz. This new offering is introduced under Kingston’s ‘LoVo’ (low voltage) HyperX DDR3 High-Performance memory product line.
The dual-channel kit (Kingston part #: KHX1866C9D3LK2/4GX) is available preprogrammed with two XMP-ready profiles: 1.25 volts at 1600MHz and 1.35 volts at 1866MHz. In fact, the latter profile is said to be the world’s first for speed matching higher frequency with a lower voltage.
“Kingston is proud to lead the charge with memory for the new generation of energy efficient systems that yield higher performance,” said Ann Bai, DRAM Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, 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 runs at an ultra-low 1.25 volts at 1600MHz which is also said to be the lowest voltage ever for desktop PCs. Overall, Kingston is sliding the covers off three 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. These kits are tested on Asus P7P55D EVO motherboard. The memory offerings have been designed to be used in eco-friendly PCs as systems offering higher performance with smaller energy footprints.
Backed by a lifetime warranty and free technical support, the HyperX memory will be made available through HCL Infosystems Limited, Compuage Infocom Limited, Transtek Infoways Private Limited and Shree Pati Computers Private Limited. The memory solutions are available at a price ranging from Rs. 8955 and Rs. 11790.
