Kingston is probably the most popular memory manufacturer because of its high quality products and reasonable prices.
For over ten years Kingston has made available their enthusiast lineup of memory, dubbed the HyperX, which is growing every year. One of the HyperX products is the Predator 8GB DDR3-2800 CL12 memory kit which we will be reviewing today.
Since more new desktop platforms support high memory clocks, memory manufacturers are designing new and faster memory. Let us take a closer look at the fastest memory in the HyperX line which is specified to run at 1400MHz ( DDR3-2800 ) reaching over 22GB/s bandwidth.
Push your system to the max. Kingston® HyperX® Predator takes performance to thrilling new extremes with the fastest speeds, lowest latencies and highest capacities available in HyperX memory. It has a new heat spreader for greater heat dissipation, plus it’s Intel XMP Ready and compatible with all popular brands of motherboards. HyperX Predator is ultra-reliable and 100 per cent factory tested to ensure higher performance, ultra-responsive multitasking and a faster system. HyperX Predator is backed by a lifetime warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
We can also find additional information on the Kingston website:
CAUTION: Users may experience extreme motion sickness and/or complete disorientation from the extreme speeds typically reached with HyperX® Predator. It is not intended for small children, the faint-at-heart, people with a lot of time to complete a creative project or anyone who settles for less. Featuring frequencies up to 2800MHz and a new heat spreader for greater heat dissipation, it’s Intel XMP ready, compatible with all popular brands of motherboards and backed by legendary Kingston® reliability. We might even recommend a helmet.
Today, we are going to test and see just how extreme the Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-2800 memory kit is; and I hope that a helmet will not be necessary for our tests.
