The consumer solid state drive market could see a price war coming with leading manufacturers ramping up production according to industry sources. NAND flash supplier Micron has reportedly reduced sales of its flash chips to other companies in order to support its own Crucial branded solid state drives.
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!
We all know what a benefit having a USB flash drive is for adding extra storage and transferring files between a desktop PC and a laptop. With the flood of mobile devices out there I’m sure you have a tablet or smartphone, or both. The issue with these is that for the most part they do not have traditional USB ports which would make it easy to add storage or transfer files. Well Kingston hopes to solve this issue with their DataTraveler microDuo USB drive that has a normal USB port on it for PCs and a smaller microUSB port on it to be used on mobile devices. Let’s take a look…
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.
