Kingston is a leading manufacturer of memory cards, flash drives, hard disks and many other memory devices. Kingston has ventured into manufacturing top class gaming accessories under the brand Hyperx . We previously reviewed Kingston hyperx cloud core headphones and now we got a chance to review its Kingston Hyperx DDR4 RAM .
DDR3 is now long gone and most of the latest mother boards are designed to support DDR4 RAM. DDR4 delivers higher performance, higher DIMM capacities, improved data integrity and lower power consumption. DDR4 RAMs are slightly thicker than DDR3 RAMs to accomodate more signal layers.
Design and built –
The RAM we received was an 8GB DDR4 . It is also available in 16GB, 32GB,64GB versions. Well, talking about the design, you can feel it as soon as you take the RAM in hands. It has some weight since the outer shell is made of metal, probably aluminium. You can see Fury & Hyperx branding on the front and it looks beautiful. If you have an open case then it will add some beauty to your CPU. At the back side you get some information about the RAM.
Specifications and Performance –
Kingston Hyperx DDR4 RAM has a frequency of 2133 MHz and it is easily overclockable. You can run it at 2666 Mhz in an overclocked build. It requires a 1.2V power as compared to 1.5V on a DDR3 RAM. It has more internal banks which will help in faster burst access. There isn’t a single compromise with this Fury RAM.
It is plug n play , so you don’t need to install any drivers for this. Just make sure that your motherboard supports DDR4 RAM and you are good to go. If you are a gaming enthusiast or want build a high performance PC then this Kingston Hyperx DDR4 RAM is a perfect choice for you.
