    Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is first to market with DDR3 1600MHz 12GB triple-channel memory kits. The HyperX kit of three 4GB modules allows enthusiasts to get the most out of their Intel Core i7 and X58 platforms.

    “Kingston was first to release 2GHz kits and has continued to lead the memory charge with more DDR3 offerings since Intel created the triple-channel architecture,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. “Our latest kit of three was tested with great success on the Asus P6T Deluxe motherboard and runs at a speedy 1600MHz to take full advantage of the memory controller on the Core i7 processor for unmatched performance.”

    The 12GB kit is the largest kit available in the HyperX family of triple-channel memory solutions. Other kits are available in 3GB and 6GB capacities with frequencies up to 2GHz. Kingston HyperX is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support. For detailed information please visit the Kingston website.

    before I saw the price I was excited lol 12gigs of ocz ddr3 1600 7-7-7-24 is 200$

    why in the world would they pay 7 times the amount for the same capacity?

    anyone in the server world would be buying regestered memory anyway so that's not an argument.

    What I've read is that the chips used in 4GB unbuffered sticks are still quite expensive. Until they can get the costs down, the jump is going to be huge.

    A 3 x 4GB set of Crucial Registered/ECC DDR3 goes for about $350, for comparison.

    no shit lol, $1400 that's one hell of a system, i really don't see these selling like at all except for all the bill gates' sons out there buyin it up. I can't really see these overclocking exceptionally either with that much memory.

    EA/Dice is releasing a patch that enabled battlefield2 to use more than 2GB, so you see, eventually it works to have more RAM :)

    Eventually.

    For that money you can buy a competent second computer and network them and have one do some gruntwork while you use the other.
    Or buy a server type mobo that has enough RAM slots to get to 12MB for much less, and has place for 2 CPU's so you also have 8 or even 16 cores, and you might still save money compared to this.
