Ramish Zafar

HyperX, the high performance division of Kingston Memory based in Taiwan has announced a slew of new products at this year's Computex. In addition to this, the manufacturer also announced the OC Takeover (HOT) competition. The tournament  will reward Overclockers and Enthusiasts with $10,0000 prize money for competing for top marks in SuperPi 32M and XTU, coupled with a secret processor to be unveiled at the event. The tournament will be held initially in Taiwan after which four online regional tournaments will be held on HBWOT.org. These will lead to a $15,000 world final. The products announced by the manufacture include the HyperX Impact line of memory, the HyperX Fury SSD. In addition to this, a white version of the company's Cloud headset and a mousepad were also announced.

HyperX Claims Impact Memory Achieves World Record For Fastest SO-DIMM Frequency. HyperX Fury SSD and White Cloud Headset Also Announced.

Hyper has announced its Impact line of memory. The HyperX Impact is available in frequencies ranging from 1400MHz to 2400MHz. Capacities are 4 and 8Gb for single modules and 8 and 16gb for dual memory kits. The Impact Memory has operating voltage frequencies of 1.35 Volts and the company claims that upgradation will be effortless for the modules owing to PnP functionality designed in every module. The PnP functionality also allows automatic overclocking of the modules without any need for manual tuning. The memory lineup replaces current SO-DIMMs and can be used to upgrade small form factor systems including Intel NUC, Gigabyte BRIX and ZOTAX ZBOX. Providing a video link as proof, the company claims that the HyperX Impact has achieved the world record for fastest SO-DIMM frequency. Further technical details of the memory can be found at the bottom.

In addition to the Impact memory modules, the company also announced the HyperX Fury SSD, which joins the recently launched HyperX Fury DRAM. The HyperX Fury SSD features synchronous locked NAND and is powered by the LSI Sandforce SF-2281 Controller with SATA 3.0 (6.0 GB/s). The company claims that the new SSD offers read-write speeds of 500/500 MB/s. The drive is available in capacities of 120 and 240 GB and is said to offer boot, application loading and file execution times. “We are happy to launch the fastest SO-DIMMs in the world to increase performance in notebooks, small form factor PCs and other machines,” said Lawrence Yang, business manager, HyperX. “The White Cloud headset and new mouse pad shows our commitment to the gaming and eSports community. For overclockers, HyperX set the world record at 4415MHz and we hope to even go higher this year with our HOT competitions.”

The White Cloud headset is similar to the black version except for white ear cups and stitching. The company also announced a 'paper-thin' mousepad, the HyperX Skyn. The pad features an adhesive bottom with a removable lift on the side. The pad is to come in two versions, one designed for precision and other for fast movements. The company also announced an enticing overclocking competition. Further details can be found here.
