Kingston unveils HyperX Predator memory range

If you’ve ever bought a memory card, pen drive or RAM, you must have probably had Kingston as an option. Kingston Technology Corporation is an American, privately held, multinational computer technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells and supports flash memory products and other computer-related memory products. In the RAM category, just like any major manufacturer, they have a HyperX product range which is aimed at gamers who are looking for visually striking and high-performance memory.

Kingston has now expanded its HyperX memory range by adding a new product. The new offering is called as HyperX Predator branded memory and it supports speeds up to 2,666MHz. Kingston has been producing RAM sticks for a long time now, and the sticks are known to be reliable, however, they have been too mainstream, and HyperX Predator is a perhaps company’s first attempt to appeal overclockers to include its memory sticks in their rigs. This new model of high-performance DRAM module supplements the HyperX product range with a product that has fastest speeds, lowest latencies and highest capacities. The product is not aimed at daily users, but for those who are extreme fanatics and overclockers should find this as a viable option to push their high performance hardware’s limit to maximum with the fastest speeds.

Kingston is currently offering HyperX Predator modules in 2GB, 4GB, 8GB capacities. The range will include 1,600MHz, 1,866MHz, 2,133MHz and 2,666MHz models in CAS latency 9 and 11 flavors, and supports 1.5V and 1.65V, which should be helpful when it comes to overvolting. All the HyperX Predator models will come with XMP-certification. Intel Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP) basically allows the user to overclock compatible DDR3 memory easily in order to have the memory perform beyond standard specifications, a boon for gamers, however, hardcore overclockers will head straight to the BIOS settings where they’ll find much more options to tweak in order to squeeze that last drop of performance. Kingston will be selling dual-channel kits for popular AMD and Intel chipsets, including Intel’s P55, H67, P67, Z68, H61, and Z77 chipsets along with AMD’s A75, A87, A88, A89, A78, and E35 chipsets.

Anne Keefe, Kingston regional director for UK and Ireland said, “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. 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.”

Below are the specs of HyperX Predator in detail.

Kingston HyperX Predator Specifications:
• Capacity: 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB in kits of 2 and 4
• Frequency (speed): 1600MHz-2666MHz
• CAS Latency: CL9, CL11
• Voltage: 1.5v-1.65v operating voltage enables stable overclocking
• XMP Certified: Higher-performing frequencies, timings and voltage are attainable by simply enabling Intel’s Extreme Memory Profile.
• Compatible: Designed specifically for P55, H67, P67, Z68, H61 (AG) and Z77 Intel chipsets, as well as A75, A87, A88, A89, A78 and E35 (Fusion) AMD chipsets
• Reliable: 100-percent tested

Kingston has confirmed HyperX Predator’s US pricing, and the range starts at $56 for the entry level kit which is clocked at 1,600MHz CL9 8GB (2x4GB), while the price rises to $338 for a 32GB (4x8GB) kit clocked at same frequency. The fastest offering is an 8GB (2x4GB) 2,666MHz CL11 kit, but the pricing for the same hasn’t been disclosed yet.
