Most of the memory announcements we're seeing lately have to do with new DDR4 RAM kits for Intel's X99 chipset and Haswell-E processors. However, if you're not ready to make the leap to DDR4, don't sweat it -- companies aren't turning their backs on DDR3 memory kits just yet. Hence we have Kingston announcing its new HyperX Savage DDR3 memory line with red aluminum heatspreaders.
Kingston's HyperX Savage replaces the HyperX Genesis. It's a mid-range line that sports a black PCB encased in an asymmetrical heatspreader with a diamond cut finish. Though it has an aggressive look to it, the kits are low profile, giving system builders a bit of extra room for oversized CPU coolers.
"After replacing HyperX blu with Fury for entry-level gamers, it was time to refresh our mid-level Genesis line with HyperX Savage," said Lawrence Yang, business manager, HyperX. "The bold and stylish red heatspreader offers enthusiasts and gamers a radical new look combined with high performance and capacities to match."
Speaking of which, capacities range from 4GB and 8GB single modules to 8GB to 32GB dual-channel or quad-channel kits. Frequency options run the gamut from 1600MHz to 2400MHz with CAS latencies between 9 and 11.
