2013 HyperX Press Release

Kingston Technology Ships HyperX Memory Kits with Black PCB

  • HyperX Beast and black Product Lines to Feature Black PCB
  • All-black Look Complements System Builds Where Colour and Design is Key

Sunbury-on-Thames, United Kingdom, 25 March 2013 -- Kingston Technology Europe Ltd, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, continues to celebrate its 10th HyperX anniversary by announcing all-new black printed circuit boards (PCB) on two of its product lines. Kingston’s high-performance HyperX® Beast and entry-level enthusiast ‘black’ lines will incorporate black PCB under the signature heatspreader designs.

HyperX Beast, a part of the Predator family, matches large capacity with ultra-fast frequencies. Now featuring black PCB, HyperX Beast is available in various dual- and quad-channel kits in capacities from 8GB to 64GB and speeds up to an ultra-fast 2400MHz. It is perfect for hardcore gamers, PC modders, content creators and overclockers. The 2133MHz, 64GB and 2400MHz, 32GB Beast memory are the fastest and highest capacity certified Intel® XMP-ready kits on the market.

HyperX black is available as single 4GB and 8GB module or as an 8GB or 16GB dual-channel kit in 1333- or 1600MHz frequencies. HyperX black is ideal as a cost-efficient performance upgrade for an overall faster system or for increased in-game frames-per-second rate.

“Our customers and fans have asked us to come out with HyperX memory featuring black PCBs to better match their system designs,” said Ann Keefe, Regional Director UK and Ireland, Kingston. “We are able to match good looks with high performance. The black on black combination allows for easy pairing with any colour component on the market.”

Kingston is celebrating 25 years in the memory industry. The company was founded on October 17, 1987, and has grown to become the largest third-party memory manufacturer in the world.
