Kingston Readying 24 GB DDR3 ValueRAM Kit

Kingston Memory putting memory technology development in the right direction, by upping the per-module density to 4 GB. When produced in a large scale, the modules may go into making 2x 4 GB dual-channel, 3x 4 GB and 6x 4 GB triple-channel memory kits. The company put engineering samples of its new 4 GB ValueRAM modules to test.

In its teaser video (dubbed tech demo), using a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 and Intel Core i7 920 based system, Kingston was able to demonstrate a mammoth 24 GB of system system memory by smoothly operating several virtual machines, which serves as a valid test to show how 24 GB of memory helps. The video was posted on YouTube and can be watched here. Kingston notes its pre-production 6x 4 GB kit to cost around $2000 to produce.Source: Hexus.net

Shocking price, but that is WAY better than the prices seen for similar products from Wintec or Samsung.

Not shocking for a pre-production sample. It will plummet once they start mass production.

Good luck GFC, there are barely any motherboard of x58 that support 24GB of RAM, not even close for ASUS mobos. Gigabyte has a good deal of 24GB compatible motherboards, however I doubt that the memory support would be anything like that for Lynnfield.

24GB huh? I can't imagine buying a 24GB value ram kit. I got put off of value ram when I got memory errors playing zdaemon and quake 4 on my first s478 computer

Nobody will pay $2000 for that kit, Kingston isn't selling it.
