Kingston Technology Launches ‘Plug and Play’ HyperX RAM
Kingston Technology Launches HyperX Plug and Play High Performance Memory
- Industry’s First Modules with Faster Sandy Bridge ‘Ready’ Frequencies
- Plug and Play Memory Uses JEDEC-compliant 1600MHz, 1866MHz Values
Fountain Valley, CA — April 25, 2011 — Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, 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.”
HyperX Plug and Play is available through Kingston’s channel of authorized distributors, resellers, e-tailers and retailers. Kingston HyperX memory is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support. For more detailed product information please visit the Kingston Web site at www.kingston.com

ABT recently visited the Kingston Headquarters in Fountain Valley to see how RAM modules are made. We took lots of pictures and we brought back a 96GB SSDNow V+Series drive for testing and for a complete notebook makeover for future articles.
