Kingston HyperX DDR3 – Introduction

Back in 2008 when Intel released the Core i7 family they completely changed the way memory worked on their platform. Firstly they brought the memory controller onto the CPU but more importantly they set a maximum limit of 1.65v on modules, far below the industry standard of 1.8-2.0v which existed at the time. Over time all of the major memory manufacturers brought out modules which met that specification and more recently we have seen some modules hit well over 2000MHz on this lower voltage; something few could have imagined 3-4 years ago. Today we have one such kit on our test bench, Kingstons HyperX DDR3-2400 which give huge potential memory bandwidth.

Kingston dont just do extreme speed though, they also produce a very interesting product further down their catalogue. Their LoVo sticks offer some very competitive performance at settings far below the reference 1.65v.

Today we will see how each set performs in a selection of synthetic and real world tests.
