Introduction

Over the last few years, the HyperX…a division of Kingston Technologies has increased its product line and today we add a new addition to the memory category. HyperX introduced to us the Fury series last year which offered great speeds for its entry level gaming memory and received great feedback for the awesome bang for your buck performance to value. With the success of the Fury line up, today we are going to introduce to you the new Savage series that will replace its existing Genesis series. HyperX Savage has been designed to fit the middle playing ground of bang for your buck and top performing memory. The Savage memory line offers speed of up to 2400MHz speeds and various size configurations from 4GB to 32GB kits.

The kit we have at hand today is the Savage HX318C9SRK2/16. This is 2x8GB sticks of 1866MHz of aesthetically pleasing memory. While the Savage series was not designed to be your best of the best performers, it is designed to fit that good middle ground. The Savage sits nicely between HyperX’s Fury and its Predator line up.

Before we dive in and give you the full details of the HyperX Savage memory at hand, we have to say that the asymmetrical red heat spreader made from high-quality aluminum are aesthetically pleasing to look at. Its design is making us drool already, so let’s move forward and break down the HyperX Savage memory and see what this memory kit can do.
