Kingston Adds Entry-Level "Blu" to HyperX Family

Paul Lilly

Someone over at Kingston Technology really likes the color blue, as evidenced by the trademark blue heatspreaders found on every HyperX kit. It makes sense, then, that Kingston would name a memory kit after its favorite color, and we even understand why they named the new series "Blu" instead of "Blue" - it's aimed at the entry-level crowd, so why pay more for an extra vowel?

We made that last part up, but Kingston really did announce a new line of HyperX RAM called "Blu." These kits sport a new look and, according to Kingston, run at standard JEDEC speeds and timings but with headroom "to push the performance envelope."

Kingston launched several Blu kits in both DDR2 and DDR3 trim. There are 10 new kits in all, ranging from a 1GB DDR2-800 (5-5-5-15) single module for $31 on up to a 4GB DDR3-1600 (9-9-9-27) dual-channel kit priced at $132.

No word yet on when any of these show up on retail shelves.
