Earlier this year, in August, Kingston had announced Kingston HyperX Predator. The new DRAM module complements the HyperX product range with faster speeds, lower latencies and higher capacities. HyperX Predator is aimed at extreme enthusiasts and overclockers wanting to push their systems to the maximum.
With its new heatspreader, HyperX Predator offers a design that accompanies the look and design of the latest PC hardware, and provides heat dissipation to optimise memory reliability. The memory part number ends with X and is Intel XMP-certified. Hyper Predator has been tested and validated on a range of motherboards currently available on the market. End users can overclock their systems by simply selecting a profile in BIOS with no need for manual adjustments.
