Kingston Technology has announced the release of DDR400 (PC3200) memory modules to support new PCs based on the Intel’s 875P platform (code-name Canterwood). The dual-channel DDR400 modules were developed alongside the latest Intel D875PBZ motherboard (code-name Bonanza), as well as the Asus P4C800 motherboard various other systems.

Motherboards supporting the Intel 875P platform will now run at a faster 533MHz front side bus (FSB), thanks to the benefits of hyper-threading.

"Kingston is strongly committed to supporting the latest in new technology and supporting customers that are on the cutting edge of technology," said Mike Sager, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Kingston.

"Kingston has been working diligently on the DDR400 solution for quite some time with our ValueRAM line of modules,” he added, “and we are pleased to support the system builder and the enthusiast market with such a high-speed product.”

Kingston's DDR modules are designed with the latest DDR memory chip specifications running at speeds of 400MHz and 333MHz. Although the Intel D875PBZ motherboard runs at an optimal speed at 400MHz, Kingston's DDR333 (PC2700) memory modules can also be used on motherboards supporting the latest Intel 875P platform processors.

The ValueRAM DDR400 CL3 features the DDR PC3200 184-pin DIMM module, peak bandwidth of 6.4GB/second (dual-channel) and serial presence detect (SPD) support.
