The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is one of the biggest events in the Tech space each year. We typically see a dizzying array of new products launch during the week of CES; more than we are likely to see in the following few months. Not all products are block-buster standouts though, and some of these technological spectacles inevitably shine brighter than others. After sifting though all the products we saw last week, we've compiled a list of the best products that we got time with at CES 2019. And with that, we'll just dive right in...

Today's system builders have more choices than ever before, beyond just internal hardware component selection. To see just how far things have come, you need look no further than the PC chassis market. There are so many options to chose from that, as a consumer, you can be selective about virtually any aspect of the design, from the type of RGB fans it comes with, to the implementation of tempered glass panels. This wasn't always the case in other segments, like the peripherals market for example, but over the last few years many popular brands have been leading the way and now peripherals, such...

While hopping through various suites at CES 2018, we stopped in to check on our friends at HyperX – Kingston’s high-performance products division – to see what they were showing off at the show. It turns out the company had an array of newly-announced peripherals, memory, and storage products, each with their own signature HyperX flare... Here’s a quick video-tour of a few of the stand-out products that were on display. The HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB memory kit wasn’t your typical run-of-the-mill set of brightly-lit memory modules. HyperX actually incorporated infra-red... Read more...
Did you know that not having the right headphones could mean the difference between enjoying well-earned glory and being on the wrong side of an good ol' tea-bagging? Tired of having to get your butt-shake on to pay for a worthy set of cans? If you answer "yes" to either of those, then you're missing out on a wealth of wisdom that Kingston's HyperX division provides in its latest ad promoting the company's Cloud Stinger gaming headset. In the ad, the presenter slips into his chair of "overcompensation" and tells the tales of having to twerk on his livestream -- and perhaps even worse, sell off... Read more...
If you're planning to build a new system around one of Intel's new Skylake processors, you might as well go the distance and pick up a Z170-chipset motherboard that supports DDR4 memory. You'll find that there are plenty of memory kits to choose from, including Kingston Technology's brand new HyperX Savage. With a name like "Savage," you better bring fast speeds and aggressive timings, and that's exactly what Kingston does here. The HyperX Savage DDR4 line is available in speeds up to 3,000MHz with built-in XMP-ready profiles optimized for Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. "We are excited to... Read more...
Solid State Drives continue to be one of the more sought after (and effective) upgrades for both desktop and mobile systems. But as drives have matured, and newer generations have been released, the bandwidth limitations of the legacy SATA interface have become increasingly more apparent. Even relatively affordable, mainstream solid state drives are bumping into the SATA bandwidth limit right alongside more expensive flagship drives, which makes it difficult to differentiate between them based on performance alone.The answer to eliminating the bandwidth limitations of the SATA interface is PCI...

At this point, we've pretty much seen what the best and fastest SATA 6Gbps-based solid state drives can offer -- transfer rates just shy of 600Mb/s. So what's the solution for even faster performance? To tap into the PCIe bus, of course! Enter Kingston's blazing fast HyperX Predator, an M.2 form factor SSD featuring a PCIe Gen 2.0 x4 interface. This 'Marvell-ous' piece of hardware sports a Marvell 88SS9293 controller and is capable of hitting read and write speeds of up to 1,400MB/s and 1,000MB/s, respectively. Yeah, it's like that. These are best case scenarios, of course, and those metrics apply... Read more...
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...
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...
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...
Kingston’s HyperX memory family tree has a new branch today with the introduction of the HyperX Predator series. Designed for “extreme enthusiasts and overclockers”, the DIMMs feature a new heatspreader design as well as speeds from 1600MHz up to 2666MHz with CAS latencies of 9 and 11. The Predator dual- and quad-channel kits are available in 8GB up to 32GB capacities, with prices ranging from $56 (8GB dual-channel 1600MHz) to $338 (32GB quad-channel 1600MHz).

Fancy yourself too cool for regular RAM that any ordinary Joe can get their hands on? Then what you're looking for is a kit made out of Northern White Rhinoceros hide or some other critically endangered species. Of course if you find one, it'll cost a king's ransom and you'll be letting the world know your moral compass is severely busted (note to PETA: we don't condone RAM made out of animals, though we do enjoy a juicy steak from time to time). We're already digressing, so let's get on point. Kingston Technology today announced a new HyperX Red Limited Edition memory series, so you can feel special... Read more...
Andy Samberg, Kiv Schaffer, and T-Pain aren't the only ones who got to ride on a boat. Kingston Technology's HyperX solid state drives set sail for U.S. shores and are now shipping starting at $270, the memory maker announced today. These SandForce-based drives are Kingston's first SATA 6Gbps SSDs. They're available in 120GB and 240GB capacities and offer sequential read and writes speeds of up to 555MB/s and 510MB/s , respectively. Kingston's shipping them as standalone drives with a HyperX branded 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch desktop mounting plate included, or as part of a HyperX Upgrade Kit that also... Read more...
