Kingston® Technology Company, Inc., the world's largest independent memory manufacturer, today announced support for the latest motherboards based on the new Intel® Express Chipsets 915G and 925X (previously code-named Grantsdale and Alderwood) with DDR2 (400- and 533- MHz) memory modules. These include newly launched Intel Desktop Boards.
"We are pleased to see Kingston offering DDR2 memory that is fully validated with the new Intel® 925X and 915G Express chipsets enabling the next generation of computing performance", said Sunil Kumar, Director of Chipset and Software Marketing at Intel.
Intel® 915G and 925X Express Chipset based Intel Desktop Boards feature support for new PCI Express x16 Graphics, Intel® High Definition Audio and the new Prescott Core P4 processor. DDR2 modules were developed to support the latest motherboards and systems as they are released. Kingston's DDR2 memory modules are specifically tested by KingstonÒ and Advanced Validation Labs® for compatibility with the Intel® 915G and 925X Express Chipset based motherboards. Kingston's DDR memory modules are also validated by Intel and listed on Intel's Module System Validation Results website at http://www.intel.com/technology/memory/ddr/valid/DDR2_dimm_results.htm
"Kingston is strongly committed to supporting the latest in new technology and supporting customers that are on the cutting edge of technology," said Kevin Wu, vice president ValueRAM sales and business development, Kingston. "Kingston has been working diligently on the DDR2 solution for quite some time and we are pleased to support the system builder and the enthusiast market with such a high-speed product," added Wu.
- 1.8 Volts operation, reducing power consumption by about 50 percent.
- Memory signal termination inside the memory chip ("On-Die Termination") to prevent reflected signal transmission errors.
- Operational enhancements to increase memory performance, efficiency and timing margins.
- CAS Latencies: 3 and 4

As DDR2 memory becomes widely adopted during 2004, it will be used to improve performance on desktops, notebooks, and servers as well as telecommunication and networking devices. DDR2 memory modules in the future will include all popular memory form factors: Registered DIMMs, Unbuffered DIMMs (ECC/non-ECC) DIMMs, SO-DIMMs, MicroDIMMs, Mini Registered DIMMs, and custom modules for proprietary products.
All of Kingston's memory modules are 100 percent tested and come with a lifetime warranty. For more information on Kingston's DDR memory modules and other memory products, please contact Kingston at (800) 337-8410 or by visiting www.kingston.com.
