Kingston has just announced their DataTraveler microDuo, which features a dual interface. This small form factor USB drive will pack in a normal USB connection as well as a smaller microUSB connection for portable devices like tablets and smartphones.
At CES this year Kingston was showing a very promising PCI-Express solid state drive. Going under the name HyperX Predator this drive will be based on LSI’s upcoming SandForce 3700 series controller codenamed Griffin.
Kingston had a little treat at their CES showcase this year. They had DDR4 and not only that they had a working DDR4 platform! They were showing off 384 GB of DDR4 memory running on a 2P future Intel server reference platform.
While Intel was showing off their DDR4 memory reference test platform at IDF13 San Francisco, Kingston was showing their own DDR4, a massive 192 GB kit! The kit was made up of 12 DDR4 16 GB 2133 MHz modules. Seeing that it was made up of 12 modules we assume that it was running on some sort of server platform rather than a normal desktop platform.
If you did not know Kingston has been celebrating their 10th Anniversary of HyperX this year. We actually reviewed their 10th Anniversary HyperX kit not that long ago. Continuing their celebration they have updated the printed circuit boards (PCBs) to black on two of their memory line the HyperX Beast and the new HyperX Black.
Kingston is celebrating 10 years of HyperX. Can you believe that HyperX has been around that long? It makes me feel pretty old! HyperX is of course Kingston’s high performance memory line. Recently they have added the HyperX name to other high performance products like their solid state drives and flash drives. To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of HyperX Kingston has released their 10th Anniversary HyperX Memory Kits. The modules feature an extremely attractive heatspreader, high frequencies, XMP profiles and the heatspreaders are not that large so they will not get in the way of your CPU cooler. Today we are looking at the KHX24C11X3K4/16X kit which is a 16GB kit (4x 4GB) that operates at 2400MHz with timings of 11-13-13 at 1.65V.
Transferring files between 2 computers has been made extremely easy for a while now with flash drives. These devices are small enough to fit in our pocket, deliver fast transfer speeds, and can hold quite a lot of data. Today we are taking a look at one of Kingston’s latest flash drives. Announced this year at CES the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is a USB 3.0 drive that features read speeds of up to 150 MB/s and write speeds up to 70 MB/s. The drive has a solid metal matte finish and retractable design that protects the USB connection when it is not in use. Today we have the 64GB version on hand to see what it can do!
Not that long ago Kingston announced a new entry into their HyperX line, Beast. The Beast memory kits are designed for users who want the largest capacity memory available, but still want that performance memory speed and quality. HyperX Beast is part of the Predator line so it is made for both power users and enthusiasts. As I said these kits are for people who want large capacities so the lowest capacity kit available is 16GB. Kingston was nice enough to send us the “big boy” of the line which is the KHX21C11T3FK8/64X kit. This a 64GB (8x8GB) kit running at 2133MHz with timings of 11-12-11 at 1.65v. So let’s get started!
We sat down with David from Kingston to discuss some of their latest offerings for 2013. The big announcement from Kingston was their 1TB (yes 1 Terabyte!) DataTraveler HyperX Predator USB 3.0 flash drive. This is currently the worlds largest USB flash drive! It is currently available in a 512GB capacity and the 1TB version will be released very soon. It boasts speeds of 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write. Kingston also showed us their new 10th anniversary HyperX modules, which have a very sleek heatspreader. Finally Kingston has the DataTravler Ultimate USB 3.0 flash drive. Read on to check out our video coverage.
Solid State Drives are becoming the more cost effective upgrade to the traditional home computer. Adding a solid state drive will speed up Windows boot up time, will allow your applications to load faster and make data transfers much easier. Today we are taking a look at Kingston’s latest solid state drive, the SSDNow V300. This drive boasts sequential read and write speeds of 450MB/s, which is about 7-10 times faster than your traditional hard drive. The V300 is also Kingston’s first drive to use Toshiba’s 19nm NAND flash memory. Kingston is aiming the V300 at consumers who want to get the most for their money. Read on as we take a look…
