HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced its HyperX Predator DDR4 memory was overclocked at 4351 MHz, the highest frequency among all DDR4 memory in the world. The mark was set by overclocker “Toppc” of MSI using one 4GB HyperX Predator 3333MHz DDR4 module on the new MSI X99S XPOWER AC motherboard. The valid CPU-Z screenshot can be found here. The video of the overclocking record can be found here.
Kingston’s original HyperX Cloud gaming headset was a huge success. It actually received a perfect 10 out of 10 score when we reviewed it! Well Kingston is following up the HyperX Cloud with the HyperX Cloud 2. We were able to take a closer look at it during CES 2015.
We have taken a look at a few different DDR4 memory kits over the past couple of months. The kits ranged from entry-level to high-end. Kingston’s HyperX brand is known as their high-end brand. Their best memory and solid state drives are part of the HyperX family. Of course with DDR4 being new we expected some new HyperX memory and Kingston delivered with their HyperX Predator series. This is not your typical memory, it is high-end with some of the tightest timings we have seen for DDR4 and the performance to match it. The Predator Series is available in speeds ranging from 2133 MHz all the way up to 3000 MHz. Today we will be taking a look at the HX424C12PB2K4/16 kit which is a 16 GB kit running at 2400 MHz with timings of 12-13-13-35 at 1.35V. Let’s see what this kit can do!
Recently Kingston introduced their brand new HyperX Savage Series DDR3 memory kits. The HyperX Savage series effectively replaces the HyperX Genesis series that has been on the market for a few years now. The refresh sees a new improved and stylish red heatspreader, black PCB and of course the great quality we expect from Kingston. Kingston’s HyperX Savage memory is available with speeds ranging from 1600 MHz to 2400 MHz in single 4GB and 8GB modules and dual-channel kits ranging from 8GB all the way up to 32GB. Today we will be taking a look at the highest clocked kit the HX324C11SRK2/16 which runs at 2400 MHz with timings of 11-13-14 at 1.65V. Let’s get them on the test bench and see how they do!
Kingston today announced a new entry into their HyperX memory line with the HyperX Savage memory. yperX Savage replaces HyperX Genesis and offers experienced enthusiasts, gamers and content creators a cutting-edge look. It features a black PCB encompassed by an eye-catching Savage red, asymmetrical heatspreader made of aluminum with a diamond-cut finish. The low profile makes it perfect for oversized CPU coolers.
When you hear the name Kingston you usually think about memory, flash drives, and maybe SSD’s. However what you don’t think about are Headsets. Designed in Sweden with a company called Qpad, we bring you the Kingston HyperX Cloud Pro Headset. Qpad is known all over Europe for high end quality gaming gear and HyperX promotes and supports some of the best players on the planet. With that in mind the Kingston HyperX Cloud Pro Headset has some big expectations to live up too. Let’s see how it does!
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!
