CES 2011: Kingston HyperX 2133MHz kit gets Sandy Bridge P67 certification Kingston used the Internet Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to announce that its 8GB 2133MHz HyperX memory kits have achieved Intel XMP certification for the P67 Sandy Bridge platform.
The HyperX T1 8GB memory kits are the first to be validated for the platform. The kits were subjected to extensive testing using the Asus P8P67 PRO and Gigabyte GA-P67-UD4 motherboards in Kingston labs. Following success, Kingston submitted the memory to Intel. Intel posted the XMP certification results here.

"The new 8GB HyperX memory kits were designed to push the memory boundaries of the new P67 motherboards in both speed and capacity," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston.

"Our 2133MHz T1 modules featuring the signature tall heatspreaders passed the rigorous testing requirements both in-house and at Intel to achieve XMP certification. This is the perfect kit for enthusiasts who want to maximize performance from the new Sandy Bridge platform."

The Kingston 2133MHz 8GB kits of four are shipping immediately with a MSRP of $299.99.

8gb memory kit...does this mean 8gb on a single stick of ram or just the fact that they used a bunch of sticks of ram (2x4gb, 4x2gb) in their testing?

It reads to me as, four sticks of 8gb equaling 32gb, the memory cap on most high end motherboards.
