At the Forefront of Memory: The History of Kingston
Kingston Technology grew out of a severe shortage of surface-mount memory chips in the high-tech marketplace in the 1980s. John Tu and David Sun were determined to find a solution. They put their engineering expertise to work and designed a new Single In-Line Memory Module (SIMM) that used readily available, older technology through-hole components. A new industry standard was born — and, on October 17, 1987, so was Kingston Technology.
Today we are looking at the Kingston HyperX PC8000 (KHX8500D2K2/1G) 2-gig memory kit, now 1000mhz does not come easy but Kingston are among the manufactures who currently offer this kind of kit. While speed is certainly fast the timings rated at 5,5,5,15 with a command rate of 1 is as loose as it gets. Having said that we looked at a 2 gig 800mhz kit from syncmax a while ago with these timings and on our overclocking rig it had a P4 530 single core benching nearly as high as an extreme edition based rig. Now with this kit I expect to see better performance. Let us move on and see what we do.
