Page 1: Test: Kingston HyperX Predator - Romancing the Performance Crown

kingston 2666 teaser kleinNot long ago, Kingston announced the Predator as the new high performance series, and we already got our hands on the top model: The Kingston HyperX Predator 2666 MHz. A first in our test parcours: until now, we never  tested a kit with such a high guaranteed clock speed. Kingston promises improved performance, and reliability has been increased as well. Our new testing system, in which we replaced the Asus P8Z88-V Deluxe with an Asus Maximus Formula V, will get a nice baptism of fire. We're looking forward to seeing if the test will indeed crown the new King(ston).

The two modules bear the exact designation KHX26C11T2K2/8X. The dual-channel kit consists of two 4 GB modules with a newly designed heat spreader. The effective memory frequency of 2666 MHz is achieved with a latency of CL 11-13-13-30. It requires an operating voltage of 1.65 V; it's higher than the Intel systems specification, but that's common procedure in this performance region. The memory is currently sold at approx. 150 Euro
