Today, Kingston released a new line of computer memory: HyperX Predator. It is designed as high performance enthusiast/gamer oriented RAM. Kingston introduced a new heatsink design both for aesthetic beauty and slimmness as well as better heat dispersal. HyperX Predator will be released in a variety of kits and frequencies ranging from 8GB to 32GB and 1600MHz-2666MHz respectively. The 32GB (4x8GB) kits will both run at 1600MHz, with one kit offered as an XMP kit, meaning the kit will be ‘plug and play’ in terms of using the correct timings and frequency. The fastest kit offered is the 8GB (2x4GB) running at a blazing 2666MHz, although pricing for it has not yet been released.
