HyperX Predator DDR4 goes infrared with new model
Because everything is better with RGB.
Kingston Technologies’ HyperX gaming division announced the launch of their new Predator DDR4 RGB with Infrared Sync. This much anticipated wire-free RGB LED-adorned memory module was the version the company displaying back at Computex 2017. It uses the patent-pending HyperX Infrared Sync technology to keep all colors in sync. The memory is further compatible with lighting control software from a range of motherboard vendors including ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light Sync.
DRAM business manager at HyperX, Kristy Ernt says:
This unique RGB design with Infrared Sync technology creates a new way to experience RGB lighting. It combines the performance of the Predator line with the aesthetic flexibility of having multi-colored lighting. Which means system builders and modders can practically tailor it to any color theme build project they may have.
The memory modules are high-profile, measuring 42.2mm tall so be careful when you’re deciding on your CPU cooler if air-cooling, or on a case if watercooling, where often you’re limited to 40mm. They have an edgy black aluminum heat spreader on a black PCB. This heat spreader keeps the temperature in check, well below the 85C threshold for the IC. Diffused lighting from the top lightbar gives it a smooth lighting effect.
These Predator DDR4 RGB modules are available in 8GB singles and matched kits of 2 DIMMs in 16GB and 32GB kits of 4. They are XMP 2.0 compatible with a preset at a 2933MHz frequency. It has tight CL15 timings and runs on 1.35V. XMP allows for quick preset overclocking on compatible Intel platforms or AMD platforms that support the XMP standard.
These DIMMs can also be overclocked above the stable XMP settings by those intrepid enough to do so. As usual for HyperX, these DDR4 RGB memory modules come with a lifetime warranty.
