Kingston has launched the latest members of its HyperX product line, and we do mean the dynamic random access memory collection, not the solid-state drives or flash drives.
The name of the latest HyperX memory modules is HyperX Predator, where the prey is, from what we can guess, the high-end consumer market, particularly overclockers and gamers with too much money in their accounts.
There are 4 GB and 8 GB modules selling in either pairs or groups of four. That means that the kits come in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB.
In terms of speed, the 1,600 MHz is the low limit, even though standard DDR3 works at 1,333, or even 1,066 MHz. Meanwhile, the upper performance limit is 2,666 MHz.
Moving on, the CAS latency is of CL9 and CL11, according to capacity and clock frequency.
Additionally, Kingston's RAM operates on 1.5V to 1.65V. Overclocking should be an easy enough feat, for those who like such things.
Other specifications include XMP certification (Intel's Extreme Memory Profiles can be used for high frequencies and voltages) and compatibility with both AMD and Intel chipsets.
For those who want a complete list, systems can have one of many AMD chipsets (A75, A87, A88, A89, A78 and E35 (Fusion)), or an Intel chipset (P55, H67, P67, Z68, H61 (AG) and Z77).
"The PC gaming market is robust and growing and we are pleased to contribute to that market with our new, more aggressive HyperX Predator memory kits," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston.
"Enthusiasts will experience higher performance, ultra-responsive multitasking possibilities and an overall faster system thanks to its top optimized performance settings for specific modules ― handpicked and tested by our Kingston engineers."
