One of the families of RAM more pedigree market, HyperX of Kingston, recently updated with a stronger design that looked half impress visually and improve heat dissipation, as well as chips prepared memory to take full match the latest Intel processors, with the beast 10 cores and 1800 dollars between them.
We have already tested the new Kingston HyperX Predator RAM and these are our impressions…
Kingston HyperX Predator, technical features
The release of the new Intel processors Broadwell-E has resulted in the renewal of memories HyperX Predator Kingston, who a few weeks now offers kits of RAM for the enthusiast overclocking, gaming and extreme performance where speed, latency and dissipation are key in choosing memory for high-end equipment. In addition, they are factory tested memories before they are released.
We have tested the kit with two modules of 8 GB each and 3200 Mhz speed. In the new range of the manufacturer, there are many more configurations where you combine clusters from 4 to 16 GB, with results of kits from 8 to 64 GB maximum, which makes price vary. The kit 2×8 GB 3200 Mhz same time costs 180 dollars, which is about 70-80 dollars more than DDR4 models not as exclusive but a good price if compared with DDR4-3300 memory type.
The HyperX Predator memory is a model compatible with XMP 2.0, frequency of 3200 Mhz and capacity of simple overclocking, admitting several profiles more. They are memory prepared to offer maximum performance with plates X99, both Dual and Quad Channel, can operate in temperature ranges from 0 to 85 degrees Celsius. Its maximum voltage is 1.35 v, one of its strengths.

In addition to the purely technical features, these memories Kingston attract your attention by its design, which dominates the sink high-profile black aluminum finish, which gives packaging in both appearance and temperature control. Although its height and width should not cause problems to mount on any compatible board, depending on the cooling system installed on your PC and available slots, you can place more or less modules in it.

Test of performance
To test actual performance of the memories Kingston HyperX Predator we have analyzed, we have used our team regularly tests, provided by ASUS, with the corresponding update of the motherboard to enable the most interesting profiles, which are not coming by default just connect the memory and start the PC.
The desktop PC ASUS G11 has a basic equipment consisting of the Intel Core i7 6700 (Skylake) 3.4 Ghz accompanied 16GB DDR4 2126 Mhz RAM memory and an Nvidia GTX980. The operating system is Window 10 updated. In addition to the independent measures, we will face the performance in different scenarios and software of the memory base currently installed with the new modules Kingston (also 16 GB).
After installing the modules and booting with the most basic profile, we configured the most favorable XMP option in our BIOS (3200 MHz / 1.35V), which had a Skylake processor, and started with performance tests.
The first one we submitted the new RAM Kingston was how not AIDA64. Here is a comparison between the performance of writing, reading and copying with 16 GB Kingston to 3200 Mhz and 16 Mhz GB generic 2126 that make up the core team.
The substantial improvement we appreciate playing in the league Mhz RAM 3200 is also evident in Cinebench R15, but not so much when tests focus on CPU performance, as in the case of PC Mark 8 and 3DMark.
And with games? If you were wondering, we also apply a series of tests with the games standard of our test, including GTA V, Division or The Rise of Tomb Rider. In all cases, both in game at 1080p and at 1440p, the improvement in fps barely reached 2-3 on average.Tags: Kingston HyperX Predator
