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.

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.
