CORPORATE PROFILE



Headquartered in Fountain Valley, Calif., Kingston Technology Company, Inc. is the world's largest independent manufacturer of memory products for desktop computers, notebooks, servers, workstations, laser printers, digital cameras and hand-held computers. Kingston provides contract manufacturing for most of the large semiconductor OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer), several system OEMs, and supports large OEMs with supply chain management services. The company also has sister companies in the component packaging (Payton Technology), and test and validation test lab (AVL) sectors.


Kingston offers a range of memory products and services needed to satisfy current and next-generation product demands. Memory options for new systems are introduced and supported on a daily basis, usually with Kingston engineering working in conjunction with the system OEM. For those requiring legacy memory - memory no longer available from the original manufacturer - Kingston is often the only source. Kingston operates on a just-in-time model based on customer needs. Kingston's products are built-to-order, which minimizes the risk of stagnant inventory for Kingston and its customers.


A global company that offers more than 2,000 products to support over 9,000 systems, Kingston corporation's sales exceeded $1.8 billion in 2003. Kingston serves an international network of distributors and OEM customers in the US, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Latin America, representing more than 3,000 locations worldwide.

 

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



With dual channel motherboards flowing into every retail channel and supporting either the AMD or the Intel processor, memory manufacturers like Kingston in this particular example today have done an excellent job in releasing proper dual channel memory kits to take advantage of the new memory technology and increased bandwidth.


Within the population using these high end motherboards, the ranks are split into separate yet equally important groups. For one, you will have the mainstream performance user which is perfectly happy with a PC3200 (DDR400) dual channel kit to match the stock settings of each motherboard. On the other hands we have the elite users which just love to overclock and "tweak" every bit of extra performance from their newly built rig.


For the overclockers, high speed memory is a must in order to be able to overclock, but yet still keep the memory divider at its stock 1:1 ratio. What this will enable is still the same CPU overclock, but with a drastic increase in memory performance to compliment the cranked processor front side bus. As you will see, running your memory at DDR500 does give your system a great boost in performance that is noticed system wide.


Boot speed, application execution and gaming performance and just a few advantages that faster memory bring to the computing table. My question is why faster memory speeds are not a standard?


Makes you think right?.....
