Another vendor is pushing the DDR3 “performance” camp, with Kingston introducing some new low latency DDR3 modules. Their newer 1375MHz HyperX modules will have latency down to CL5, and sits as one of the fastest modules currently on the market.

The new HyperX modules are available as 1GB standalones or 2GB kits, and come with a massive price tag at $400 per stick.

DDR3 may still be an emerging technology, but that hasn't stopped manufacturers from getting boards and modules ready for the mass market. Now that JEDEC has standardized on the DDR3 specification, all manufacturers know what to go by.

In the past few months, we've seen many vendors release DDR3 kits, including Corsair and OCZ, who has gone all the way up to 1333MHz just last month.
