HyperX SO-DIMM memory ideal for enhancing the performance of mobile platforms

CeBIT Hannover, Germany and London -- March 3, 2009 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of a high-performance Kingston 2GB HyperX SO-DIMM specifically targeted at users who want to boost the performance of their netbook computing devices using the Intel Atom processor. Shipping immediately, the new Kingston HyperX SO-DIMM is designed to increase system performance by using faster latency timings.

“Netbooks, simplified notebooks designed to be affordable, energy efficient, and smaller in size, are growing in popularity because of their practical price point and no-frill capabilities. But the base-level versions of these tiny devices tend to come with low memory capacity,” said Marc Bernier, European Research and Development Engineer, Kingston Technology. “The Kingston 2GB HyperX SO-DIMM memory offers customers an easy way to optimise the performance and reliability of their netbooks’ applications.”

When upgrading the netbook the device automatically recognises the preset low latency value of the HyperX memory module and properly boosts the system‘s performance and speed. “High-performance memory is a perfect fit for netbook users who want to boost system performance by replacing their standard memory with high-performance higher capacity modules” continued Bernier.

The 2GB HyperX SO-DIMM is perfect for netbooks such as the Asus Eee, MSI Wind and Gigabyte UMPC lines that support 533MHz bus specifications.

Kingston HyperX is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support. For detailed information please visit the Kingston Web site at
