Kingston Adds a 'Predator' to HyperX Memory Family

Paul Lilly

It's too bad for Kingston there's not an award for 'Best DDR3 RAM Memory Name', because if there was, the company's new Predator modules would be a shoe-in. And then wouldn't it be awesome if Corsair or another competitor came out with an Aliens system memory line? Ah, but we digress. Killer name aside, Predator represents the newest addition to Kingston's HyperX memory family, and it takes direct aim at "extreme enthusiasts and overclockers," the company says.

HyperX Predator modules don a more aggressive suit of armor to dissipate heat than previous HyperX variants, underneath which sit cherry-picked memory chips ranging in frequency from 1600MHz to 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."

HyperX Predator kits of 2 and 4 come in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities. No word yet on when you'll able to purchase them or for how much.
