Kingston showed us a lot of prototype idea designs for memory, which it is playing with for possible production. One of the most interesting products that Kingston was showing off was a liquid cooled solution for their HyperX line, which significantly reduces the operating temperatures of the modules to allow for higher clock speeds and better stability. It was also showing off different heat spreader designs that it is toying with for possible limited edition sticks in the future. Of course, what display wouldn't also be complete without its current HyperX and HyperX T1 line being showcased as well.
To show off its memory Kingston had two displays set up with different applications running on them. The first setup featured a system running 16GB of Kingston HyperX memory and two Kingston 40GB SSDNow V Series drives rendering an HD picture to show the processing power of the memory. The second setup featured a system running 24GB of memory and pushing eight operating systems running in VMWare Workstation, each with three to four GB of memory on top of the host operating system. This setup utilized 23GB of the memory and flawlessly ran each with no lag time on or between each instance.
