HyperX FURY and Impact DDR4 memory kits get even faster
When buying RAM, I cannot stress enough just how important it is to buy a quality brand. Performance aside, troubleshooting bad memory sticks can be an exercise in frustration. When you do discover a defective stick (or sticks) of RAM, the RMA process can leave you without a working computer -- unacceptable. True, defective RAM can come from any company, but they are more likely from budget brands. That is why I urge you to please stick with quality companies, such as G.SKILL and HyperX (the gaming/enthusiast brand of Kingston).
Speaking of HyperX, today, the company announces that its popular FURY and Impact DDR4 memory kits are getting even faster. The former, which is for desktops, will now feature frequencies up to 3,466 MHz. The latter, which is designed for laptops and all-in-one systems, will now be available in speeds up to 3,200MHz.
"HyperX FURY DDR4 is a cost-efficient high-performance upgrade for Intel and AMD's latest platforms for faster video editing, 3D rendering, gaming and AI processing. It features Plug N Play which enables automatic memory overclocking at standard DDR4 1.2v settings. The new FURY DDR4 additions are available in black, red and white low-profile heat spreader color options that feature the stylish signature FURY asymmetrical heat spreader design with black PCB," says HyperX.
The Kingston company further says, "HyperX is also expanding its Impact DDR4 SODIMM family with new higher speeds in capacities up to 16GB modules and kit configurations up to 64GB. Voltages are based on standard 1.2V values, and support XMP profiles for easy overclocking. Upgrading using the Plug N Play feature allows for automatic overclocking to the highest published frequency within the system speed allowance."
HyperX shares the new kit configurations below. They will be available at the usual places like Newegg and Amazon. The Fury sticks are available in red, white, and black, while the Impact SODIMM is limited to just black.
