Memory speeds have been pretty fixed for the last few years to between 1333 MHz and 1866 MHz. We occasionally see kits released by each memory manufacturer with much higher clock speeds, just to brag about having the fastest memory available.  This time around Kingston aims for higher memory speeds as their standard going forward with the new HyperX Predator memory.

The new Kingston Predator memory is much more aggressive in design and looks. The new heatspreader design provides greater heat dissipation for better reliability at higher clock speeds.  The Predator kits will be available in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB in two or four modules with speeds between 1600 MHz to 2666 MHz. While the range of speeds is obviously higher, the voltage remains the standard 1.5 to 1.65 volts. Each kit will also be Intel XMP certified and fully tested with a variety of high-end motherboards.

It is clear the new Kingston HyperX Predator are hunting for a place with enthusiasts and overclockers. I expect the new Predator kits to do quite well in overclocking given Kingston’s strong history in this area. You can expect to see these available at your favorite e-tailers right now.
