Intel’s latest chipset is Z97, and along with a growing mountain of motherboards sporting the new tech, HyperX (a division of Kingston) is releasing memory kits that support the chipset, too. All three of its FURY, Genesis, and Predator memory lines are getting a 9-series refresh, and the company said that it worked closely with motherboard manufacturers “to guarantee compatibility and the highest performance”. The dual-channel RAM kits are available in two or four DIMMs with capacities ranging from 8GB to 32GB with frequencies ranging from 1333MHz to 2800MHz. For a complete list... Read more...
Long gone are the days of boring beige boxes and otherwise vanilla looking systems. These days you can make a fashion statement with your PC -- it's as simple as color coordinating your case and components, and to help you do that, Kingston is rolling out its HyperX FURY line of system RAM available in four different colors. These modules come with an aggressive heatspreader design painted red, blue, black, or white, all of which sport a black PCB (printed circuit board) underneath. More than just a fashion statement, however, these sticks offer automatic overclocking for users who have no interest... Read more...
ASUS is boasting that it’s achieved an industry milestone by developing a PC that requires essentially no cooling and emits zero noise. It’s also remarkably compact, measuring just a couple of inches square. There’s an Intel Core i7 chip inside that ASUS has paired with one of its own ASUS DirectCU II GPUs. There’s just a single stick of RAM, but it’s a more-than-capable Kingston HyperX DDR3 DIMM, and Kingston also contributed a 512GB SSD Now V for ample storage and snappy performance. ASUS custom-built the motherboard to fit this hyper-compact form factor, and although... Read more...
In November last year, we gave you a first look at LSI's forthcoming SandForce SF3700 PCI Express SSD Flash controller. It's an impressive silicon integration of both a native PCI Express x4 interface and SandForce's excellent SSD controller technologies, along with some refinements and advancements baked in.  At the time, LSI mentioned a few OEM partners they were aligning with for manufacturing of their various reference designs and form-factors and Kingston, as well as ADATA and AVANT were on that short list.  At CES 2014 last week, however, it was Kingston that stepped out with the...

Looking to inject your desktop PC with a stick (or four) of instant adrenaline? Kingston may have exactly what you're looking for. The memory maker just announced the addition of 2800MHz memory kits to its HyperX Predator product line of high-performance RAM for overclockers, enthusiasts, and power users in general. If you're not familiar with Kingston's memory lines, the HyperX Predator family represents the fastest kits in the company's stable. Supplementing the breakneck speeds that HyperX Predator kits bring to the table are aggressive looking heatsinks to help dress up your desktop's interior.... Read more...
We spent a little time checking out the Technology Showcase at IDF13 and spotted a number of cool pieces of hardware on the show floor we thought you’d like to check out. It seemed a number of popular memory manufacturers all got the same memo, as Crucial, Kingston and G.SKILL were all showing off DDR4 memory modules in their booths, among other existing memory and storage related products.          The focus in Crucial’s booth was clearly on DDR4 memory, which will eventually usher in higher clock speeds at lower voltages on the desktop. G.SKILL...

VMworld 2013 kicked off yesterday in San Francisco, and some big names in big data are taking the opportunity to announce new products. Today, Kingston is touting its new SSDNow E50 SSDs, which are meant to be a more affordable alternative to the SSDNow E100 line. The SATA 3.0 solid-state drives come in 100GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities. In general, the E50 drives are only a little slower than the E100s. For example, the 100GB models have random 4k read/write speeds of 27,000/82,000 IOPS (for the E50) and 55,000/83,000 IOPS (for the E100). The SSDNow E50 drives have DuraWrite write-reduction technology... Read more...
Kingston Technology might be known for its iconic blue heatspreaders, but that doesn't mean the company is afraid to dive deeper into its boxy of crayons. Apparently its customers have been requesting a black line of memory, and Kingston answered the call by introducing all-new black printed circuit boards (PCBs) on two of its product lines. "Our customers and fans have asked us to come out with HyperX memory featuring black PCBs to better match their system designs," said Larry Yang, HyperX business manager, Kingston. "We are able to match good looks with high performance. The black on black combination... Read more...
Need more storage? Face it, we all go. And that's why Kingston Digital is shipping a 128GB version of its Wi-Drive. The 128GB model enables even more sharing and storage. It's a 128GB drive with a built-in Wi-Fi module and a battery that'll stream content from the device for up to four hours. Basically, it's a pocket-sized portable storage device that doesn't even need a cord to make transfers. For tablet users who have ran out of local storage, it's a real godsend. The gratis Wi-Drive app is available now for iOS and Android, as well as Kindle products. The device allows simultaneous data access... Read more...
Getting ready to upgrade your storage to a solid state drive? If so, Kingston hopes to appeal to your cost-conscious side with its new SSDNow V300 line. Continuing the SSDNow V Series tradition, these are being pitched as cost-effective upgrade solutions. Don't take that to mean they're slow. Armed with a SandForce controller and a SATA 6Gbps interface, the SSDNow V300 Series delivers read and write speeds of up to 450MB/s. They may not be the fastest SSDs on the block, but that's pretty peppy for a value oriented drive. "Kingston is committed to delivering SSDs at the best price to performance... Read more...

Thanks to its Class 10 rating, the... Read more...
Like most memory makers, Kingston is no stranger to the solid state drive market, but up until now, the company hasn't released an SSD specifically for the enterprise crowd. That all changed with the introduction of Kingston's SSDNow E100, the company's first enterprise-class SSD for mission critical applications. According to Kingston, the SSDNow E100 is infused with technologies that add up to an SSD that offers 10 times more endurance over typical client-grade SSDs. Specifically, Kingston says its SSDNow E100 is good for 30,000 program/erase cycles, compared to 3,000 program/erase cycles inherent... Read more...
One of the more enterprise-friendly features of the upcoming Windows 8 OS is Windows To Go, which essentially allows users to carry around Windows 8 on a USB stick. The specific definition is as follows, right from Microsoft’s mouth (er, well, the Windows 8 Enterprise page anyway.) Windows To Go is a fully manageable corporate Windows 8 desktop on a bootable external USB stick. This will allow IT organizations to support the “Bring Your Own PC” trend and businesses can give contingent staff access to the corporate environment without compromising security. Make sense? Cool. Windows... Read more...
