Kingston Releases 2800 MHz HyperX Predator Memory

Kingston has expanded its lineup of HyperX Predator memory kits, and added a kit with 2800 MHz memory. The kit, which at this point only comes in an 8 GB configuration (2x 4 GB), will be identifiable by the KHX28C12T2K2/8X SKU.

The DIMMs support the XMP memory profiles, and using this they can reach the 2800 MHz speeds. That said, the DIMMs will require 1.65 V. At this speed the DIMMs feature timings of CL12-14-14. They can also be run at the JEDEC 1600 MHz profile, where they'll only need 1.5 V and will feature CL11-11-11 timings.

"We are proud to offer our flagship 2800MHz memory kits to overclockers, benchmarkers and extreme system builders throughout the world," said Krystian Jaroszynski, European Product Marketing Manager, HyperX and Server, Kingston. "Our HyperX engineers will continue working hard to improve high-speed yields to get faster product in the hands of our customers."

The kit features a lifetime warranty, though it'll still set you back over $250, and it is currently being shipped to retailers.

    I really hate that "lifetime warranty" very misleading, so warranty is only covered while being manufactured, once production stopped or supply runs out, your warranty gone, they may only make it for 12 months.

    it is logic and not misleading. Lifetime warranty has always been like that. Do you see yourself RMAing theese ram kits afeter 40 years or something? oO
  • Darkk
    Usually lifetime warranty is that if the product you are trying to replace is no longer in production they will send you an updated version that is comparable in technology. By the time you want to get it replaced you already moved on to the next level of technology. I rarely have RAM replaced once its been working for over a year anyway.

    @crisan_tiberiu Yes, actually. Like @Darkk said, if something is no longer being produced the company will give you the modern equivalent. This is one of the reasons why I buy Tupperware: some items that my mother had died after thirty(!!!) years and the Tupperware dealer replaced the item, which was no longer being made, with the equivalent product that Tupperware now makes.
