The 24GB HyperX memory kit being shown off by Kingston at last month's CES has made its way to retail, priced at around £1,110.

Kingston's mammoth kit - designed for use on Intel's X58 platform - comprises of six 4GB DDR3 modules, clocked at 1,600MHz apiece with latencies of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65v.

We doubt whether or not 24GB of RAM is benefifical to most users, but Kingston does have itself a niche product that it reckons is likely to appeal to the "super enthusiast who wants everything". Even the super enthusiast might scoff at the £1,100 price tag, but if you've always wanted to run multiple virtualised operating systems at once, this here kit could be just what you need.

All six modules sport Kingston's familiar-looking HyperX heatsink, and the kit comes backed by a lifetime warranty.

To be honest, I sense a lot less urgency of going beyond 4GB compared to 512 >-1024 -> 2048MB. I suppose that it may have to do with the fact that there are more desktop running 32bit OS than 64bit if I am not mistaken.
yes but in the market of the HyperX brand are there more 32bit? I'd hope not!

However I think this is really the ultimate in epeen waving, but there are probably some who are doing something which requires that much RAM…… Thou for the life of me, I can't think what.

I do 3D simulations for work, some CPU, some CUDA. This would help on the CPU front :)
this stuff is pushing 50 quid per GB. ok it's high performance but i don't like this trend of ever more expensive memory products. Anyone know if we'll see samsung's 3x nm chips in retail any time this year?
Why is the latency so crappy?
9-9-9-27 is awful!
8-8-8-24 is the “norm” for this sort of speed.
