Kingston Technology today announced two new enthusiast HyperX memory products—KHX9200D2/XX and KHX9600D2/XX. The latest HyperX DDR2 memory modules arrive clocked at 1.15 and 1.2 GHz. As with most high-speed memory, the new Kingston modules are rated with a CAS latency of 5. Previously released Corsair DOMINATOR and OCZ Technology FlexXLC modules are rated with CAS latencies of 5 as well.

Kingston offers the KHX9200 and KHX9600 modules in individual 512MB and 1GB modules. Dual-channel users can purchase 1GB and 2GB kits with matched pairs. All Kingston HyperX KHX9200 and KHX9600 modules have been tested by ASUS for compatibility with ATI, NVIDIA and Intel chipsets. Raymond Chen, Vice President of Marketing for ASUS claimed “it is clear that these modules, paired with high performance ASUS motherboards, bring the ultimate in high frequency gaming memory to PC enthusiasts.”

Kingston HyperX KHX9200 and KHX9600 modules are available immediately. Pricing starts at $137 for a single 512MB KHX9200 module and tops out at $525 for a 2GB KHX9600 kit.

RD600 will work, but I think 680i will only support DDR2-1200 using memory dividers (not that that sucks).

Considering the price, I'd like to see a comparison of 4GB of ddr2-800 vs. 2GB of ddr2-1200 in various apps.

From what I've seen, 4GB kits are nearly nonexistend so where have you found them, especially at DDR2-800?

I've seen recently comparison of Vista operating with varius multi tasking scenarios. The difference between 2 GB and 4 Gbs is almost nonexistend. I see no point in going 4 GBs now... However you can buy 4 GB kits at 667 MHz (Kingston).

Actually, I was thinking of two 2gb kits (more vs. faster), but it sounds like the consensus is to get enough ram (2gb), and then the faster the better. It looks like I'm going to pay the price for forgeting about memory dividers in my original post.
