    Gearing up for the increased DDR3 demand, Kingston is now selling more affordable 1600MHz-rated DDR3 memory modules and kits. "With more new chipsets able to take advantage of DDR3 memory, the time was right for Kingston to release 1600MHz modules to fill the need for an economic alternative to higher priced 1600MHz modules on the market," said Dara Sun, strategic alliance manager, Kingston. "Our goal with this new offering is to meet the demand for a more mainstream performing DDR3 product while complementing our high frequency top-performing memory technology." The HyperX 1600MHz PC3-13000 are available in 1GB or 2GB single modules as well as in 2GB and 4GB kits certified to operate from 1.7V to 1.9V with latencies of CL9-9-9-27. The recommended prices for the new memory stand at $198 (1GB module), $395 (2GB module/kit) and $790 (4GB kit). All Kingston HyperX memories are backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support.

    Wow, 800$ for 4 gigs is cheap!?
    Damn, DDR3 is still far from being accesible!

    CL9 @ 1600 mhz = ~CL4.5 @ 800mhz as far as latency goes (think about it...) BUT it has twice the bandwidth. So very slightly more latency that 800mhz ddr2 and twice the theoretical throughput. Too bad no existing memory controllers can really take advantage of the theoretical DDR3 bandwidth advantage. Supposedly Nehelam will be the first platform that will really push the envelope forward on memory throughput.

    The price disparity is just ridiculous though. Even though its already obsolete, I'm sticking with the much cheaper DDR2 for the PC I'm building.
