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.
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!
Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced HyperX Beast, the latest addition to the HyperX product line. It matches high performance with the largest available capacities and is XMP ready. With its eye-catching aggressive heatspreader design, HyperX Beast is aimed at hardcore gamers, PC modders, content creators and overclockers who want high-performing hardware in an innovative design.
Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the launch of the new Kingston® HyperX® Predator. The new high-performance DRAM module complements the HyperX product range with the fastest speeds, lowest latencies and highest capacities. HyperX Predator is aimed at extreme enthusiasts and overclockers looking to push their systems to the maximum with the fastest speeds and highest performance hardware.
Solid State Drives are becoming more and more common. I think I big reason for this is because people realize that they will give them the performance boost that they want when added to their system. The market seems to be flooded with drives and it is really hard to choose which one to get. One of the main determining factors to many people is the price. Kingston’s new HyperX 3K solid state drive is designed to be very inexpensive as it uses cost effective NAND rated for 3000 program / erase cycles. We will explain what all that means later on in the review. This drive still sports the very popular SandForce SF-2281 controller and of course the quality you expect from Kingston. Read on as we check it out!
We have always known Kingston for trying to make products that are affordable. They recently released a new solid state drive in their HyperX line. They are calling this new drive the HyperX 3K, where the 3K stands for the number of program / erase cycles the NAND inside is rated for. The original HyperX drive is rated for 5K program / erase cycles, so this drives is going to be less expensive, about $100 cheaper for the 240GB version. Read on to check out our unboxing & overview video.
Kingston has always been the memory that comes to mind when I think of enthusiast memory. Their HyperX line of memory has been their top of the line enthusiast memory and some of the first ever enthusiast memory to be released. Today we are going to be checking out their HyperX Genesis DDR3-1600 8GB Dual Channel Memory kit (KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX). This kit features Kingston’s newer heatspreaders and runs at 1600MHz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65V. This kit is the perfect starting kit for someone who is looking into dual channel memory. Read on as we take a look…
Our friends over at Kingston have just sent us a 4GB kit of their Limited Edition HyperX DDR3-1600 low latency memory (KHX1600C7D3X1K2/4GX). These modules are primarily being sold overseas (Russia/Eastern Europe). They run at 1600MHz and have a CAS latency of 7 with timings of 7-8-7-20 at 1.65V. Being that this kit only runs at 1600MHz and has low timings this should leave a lot of headroom for overclocking. Read on and see how far we can push these modules.
If you know anything about Kingston you know their HyperX line. HyperX is the name they give all of their high-end products. Kingston entered the solid state drive market with the SSDNow series of drives, but it was about time the put the HyperX name on a solid state drive. The HyperX solid state drive is a SATA 6GB/s drive powered by the SandForce SF-2281 controller, 25nm Intel NAND and boasts speeds of 555MB/s read and 510MB/s write. Kingston sent us the upgrade kit that includes a USB enclosure, 3.5-inch mounting bracket, SATA data cable, screwdriver and hard drive cloning software. Let’s take a look…
