Kingston HyperX Predator 2666mhz Memory review (Z77)

Rating: 9.0.

In August Kingston announced their HyperX Predator memory, targeting the gaming audience. Today we take a look at an 8GB dual channel kit rated at 2,666mhz with 11-14-14-30 timings. Is this a good first choice for an ultra high performance enthusiast system?

HyperX Predator is available in speeds up to 2666MHz; CAS latencies of 9 and 11; and, capacities from 8GB to 32GB in various dual- and quad-channel kit configurations. In the past high speed memory was inherently expensive, but Kingston say that this 8GB Predator 2,666mhz kit will cost only £114.84 inc vat.

We recently interviewed Kingston Regional Director Ann Keefe and when asked about the HyperX Predator she said “The PC gaming market is robust and growing and we are pleased to contribute to that market with our new, more aggressive HyperX Predator memory kits, Enthusiasts will experience higher performance, ultra-responsive multitasking possibilities and an overall faster system thanks to its top optimized performance settings for specific modules, handpicked and tested by our Kingston engineers.”

    almost wet myself at those results. Any ideas when its out? I bought a Corsair H100 last month, what a cooler ! love it to death.

    Very impressive kit. That said, 2,666mhz memory is still a little overpriced IMO. 2,400mhz is a lot cheaper and I wouldn’t think many people could notice the difference in the real world.

    im waiting on 3,200mhz kits 🙂

    you can get 16GB of slightly slower memory for 2,666mhz prices. Not for me, but interesting to read. I can see it being worthwhile in the pro industry for rendering.

    @ Darth Digglers. No one needs 16GB of memory for gaming or even ordinary duties. id rather put the money into speed, not quanitity.

    Good memory, shame they went for such huge heatspreaders, id have bought 16GB of it for my Z77 board, but id need to check my phanteks cooler I reckon before it would work right in the slots due to spacing.
