Kingston release memory with faster Sandy Bridge ‘Ready’ Frequencies

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Kingston Technology Europe Ltd today announced the new HyperX® Plug and Play (PnP)series of high-performance enthusiast memory. HyperX PnP are the first modules to scale the higher memory heights that are a part of the second generation Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 CPUs. The memory is programmed with faster frequencies and when ‘plugged’ into a system using the Sandy Bridge chipset, will automatically ‘play’ at either 1600MHz or 1866MHz in both desktop and notebook PCs.

The modules are programmed using JEDEC-compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further BIOS settings required. Users will notice performance gains as overclocking is automatic with the HyperX Plug and Play modules. In addition, the modules are backwards compatible with previously released DDR3 systems on the market.

“The HyperX engineering team has been thoroughly innovative in designing a memory module that automatically raises performance with no overclocking steps required,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. “By using JEDEC-compliant settings to create performance timings, enthusiasts can max out native frequencies on current Sandy Bridge systems and older DDR3 machines.”

    Can you point out how these memory kits are faster than those currently in the market? I didn’t see any technical superority other than the “auto-detect” function. If not, this is completely misleading.

    Thats exactly what it is, they have improved the profiling system.

    Its in the story header , key word ‘ready’.

    I understand that they are “SB ready” by supplying a better profile, but that is not “faster” claimed in the title. It does not in anyway improve the performance of the system other than saving the need to go into BIOS to adjust the memory profile, which for most users, is a simple click. For readers visiting this site, “faster” means either higher frequency, i.e. above the highest frequency currently available in the market (2166mhz), or achieve lower latency at the same frequency.

    I think you missed the point here. These new parts are designed for those locked-down PCs. Take a typical new Sandybridge laptop as an example, can you buy any available memory which can make it run faster than DDR3-1333 ?????
    Yeah, put your DDR3-2133 in there and see if it works.
