No BS Podcast #230: Kingston Talks DDR4, SSD Controversy, and New Headset

Jimmy Thang

We talk SSD bait-and-switch, pricing of DDR4, and more

Kingston dropped by for a quick visit to show off some new HyperX toys and we figured we’d bring them into the podcast room so you could also get a front seat in on the conversation. On episode #230 of the No BS Podcast , Jimmy and Tom are joined by Kingston’s Senior Technology Manager Mark Tekunoff, Public Relations Manager David Leong, and Reverb Communications Public Relations Director Douglass Perry. In the short half-hour podcast, we look at the company’s new HyperX Cloud headset and discuss the fairly recent “bait and switch” SSD controversy in which synchronous NAND was later swapped out with slower asynchronous NAND on retail shelves. We also talk about the future of DDR4, particularly in regards to pricing, yields, and performance.
