Kingston Launches HyperX Predator Memory

By - Source: BusinessWire | B 14 comments

Kingston is expanding its high-performance memory line with the new HyperX Predator, featuring a new design and extreme frequencies.

The new XMP-Certified DRAM modules feature a new heatspreader design for better thermal dissipation. The HyperX Predator will be available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities, CAS9 and CAS11 latency variations and dual or quad-channel kits. The new modules boast impressive frequency speeds, starting at 1600MHz and reaching as high as 2666MHz.

“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.”

    There's no need for heat spreaders on 1.5V RAM.

    You are right as nobody overclocks memory. lol.

    I don't see a problem either if valued-class of memory came with heatspreaders. Who cares.

    I would love 32GB of memory for my VMs. Few years ago I paid more than that price for 1GB of OCZ reapers. ha

    Hate the name "Kingston Hyper X Predator", sounds like it belongs as a Street Fighter title.

    Nah, it's just a simple ripoff of the Aerocool's "X Predator" case name. :)

    These heat spreaders are getting rediculous. Tom's should start listing the min/max height clearance going foward. Or list which popular CPU HSF's will/won't clear with these modules. The insanity needs to be checked.

    Instead of Memory manufactures continuing selling 60-nm memory modules with really tall heat spreaders, why not go the route that Samsung is taking with its 30nm low profile memory like the 8GB MV-3V4G3D/US ram. Half the height, less manufacturing cost, and overclocks higher frequencies with lower latencies.

    This one definitely look to high for many cpu coolers, especially on the X79 platform where the memory banks usually are very close to the cpu on the mb.

    I think I seen this predator memory on TV

    No Chris Hansen...I didn't think she was 14, I have dyslexia...I thought she said 41!

    And this is why I bought a Corsair H70... So i could put RAM modules with rediculously tall heatsinks in my system!

    Maybe there's some sort of collaboration between closed-loop CPU cooler makers and memory manufacturers to get people to use their coolers.

    CONSPIRACY!
