    Kingston Technology, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is first to market with ultra-low latency HyperX DDR3 gaming SO-DIMMs. The new DDR3 1066MHz notebook memory modules are pre-programmed to high-performance, ultra-low latency values and built with a new metal heatspreader that further helps promote thermal conduction for added performance. Kingston’s new HyperX DDR3 SO-DIMMs with model number KHX8500S3ULK2/4G come in a pair of 2GB modules (4GB total), that operate at 1066MHz using CL5-5-5-15 timings at 1.5V. The kit is available now for $228.00, backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support.

    Im not too sure if 'ultra-low latencys' will benefit anything other then benchmarks. Performance in 3D apps will probably be pretty much negible or little or no difference at all asside from maybe faster load times given the speed of the ram. 2 or 3fps moar perhaps??

    well if your running your laptop with the back plate on at the bottom then ^this^ pretty much means nothing at all since If the RAM is hot - it will heat up the surrounding air around the heatpipes which means the fan will have to work faster to keep things cool & laptops cooling aint exactly the best for shifting tonnes of air like a 120MM - All it will do is make the risk of your laptop overheating & switching itself a lot higher. good news if your laptop is less powerful then a DELL 1530.
