Top marks for memory

Kingston Technology has been named the best DRAM module manufacturer in the third-party market for the first 6 months of 2010.

According to independent research firm iSuppli, Kingston's revenue from memory modules was more than $2.56 billion, giving it almost 46 percent of the total third-party memory module market.

While Kingston won the same accolade in 2009 it has grown its third party DRAM market share as it had revenues of around $2.85bn and a 40.3 percent share last year.

"The strong relationships we have maintained for many years with our partners helped carry us through the downturn of 2008 and part of 2009. We are fortunate that these relationships allow Kingston to stay strong," said John Tu, co-founder, of Kingston.

Here is a chart of the DRAM module manufacturer pecking order from iSuppli.

The iSuppli report only covers module memory revenue and therefore excludes the company's NAND Flash revenues which contributed towards Kingston's global revenues of $4.1bn in 2009.

Kingston's memory module products include: branded or system-specific memory, ValueRAM and HyperX memory for gamers in need of more speed.
