HyperX Savage DDR3 Memory Review (HX318C9SRK2/16)

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. Before we move forward, let’s read a bit about HyperX: ...



 
 
 
 
 

Kingston 8GB HyperX Predator Memory Kit – KHX26C11T2K2/8X

Introduction Over the last decade or so we have seen a speedy advancement in memory. Not too long ago we were talking about the DDR1 era with speeds of 400MHz as the bragging rights. Then we take a few steps forward and DDR2 came along, followed by DDR3 not too long after, as things continued to evolve. DDR3 has been one of the longest running memory platforms, going on 5 years now. Until the next big advancement in memory bandwidth comes along, we will simply continue to see incremental tweaks in the evolution of DDR3. That’s what we have today. With each growing chipset we are seeing new advancements with Intel’s IMC (internal memory controller). Today we are taking a look at a new memory set which will bring a new level of speed with Haswell. We have on our test bench today a set of Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3 2666MHz memory. This set, is specifically made to work with our Haswell IMC, and could push new limits for all us speed demons. Let’s put it to the test and find out!   Before we move forward, let’s read a bit about Kingston: “Founded in 1987 with a single product offering, Kingston Technology now offers more than 2,000 memory products that support nearly every device that uses memory, from computers, servers and printers to MP3 players, digital cameras and cell phones. In 2007, the company’s sales exceeded $4.5 billion. With global headquarters in Fountain Valley, California, Kingston employs more than 4,500 people worldwide. Re...

Patriot 8GB PC3-17000 (2133MHz) Intel Extreme Masters Memory, Limited Edition

Memory has become a hot topic with Intel's IvyBridge processors. Lately, we have seen an onslaught of memory modules in the high-end category, which frequently reach frequencies up to 2800MHz. The press has been focusing on high frequencies and performance. Of course, along with a top tier product comes a higher price tag. Manufacturers push these high end memory kits bringing higher margins, but, because of that, we have not seen an abundance in "affordable" memory. Patriot has been known throughout the industry for quite some time. They manufacture memory, flash media, storage enclosures, media plates and Solid State Drives. Memory has always been their first forte, but as we see, they excel in other areas as well, making them more versatile. In the memory segment, Patriot has always been known for solid performance and a mainstream product with outstanding pricing. Today, we have Patriot's 8G 2133MHz Intel Extreme Masters Limited Edition memory kit in our paws and we will say, they look very handsome. Now, let's get these modules unwrapped and onto our IvyBridge test bench to see what Patriot brings to the table this time.



 
 
 
 
 

Kingston HyperX Predator – 8GB Kit (2x4GB) – DDR3 2666MHz CL11 DIMM

Memory's importance has taken on a new meaning with both SandyBridge and IvyBridge. The extra lanes of the re-worked IMC (Internal Memory Controller) on Ivy plus motherboards pampers your hardware with more bandwidth bringing overall performance to a different level. We have seen a slew of memory lately from multiple manufacturers with frequencies hitting all time highs of 2400MHz and more. The competition in the memory sector also remains at an all time high. Name brands such as Kingston, G.Skill, Crucial, and Corsair are still the major players. Of these brands, Pure Overclock has always turned to Kingston memory in situations where compatability is an issue with a new motherboard product. You cannot go wrong when inserting Kingston's HyperX modules into a new board with a fresh BIOS. Their reliable HyperX branding has been a mainstay in the industry for sometime now. Today, Kingston has a change of pace for you memory junkies. Their newest HyperX Predator series has a re-designed heat spreader plus a 2666MHz frequency rating, which should pack a serious punch for those looking add some serious bandwidth to their SandyBridge and IvyBridge systems. Let's get the new Kingston HyperX 2666MHz Predator modules to the lab and see what kind of "horsepower" they add.
