PR: Kingston Technology Expands HyperX Memory Family (RUMOUR: AMD to release 4 new chipsets?)

HyperX Predator RAM
Kingston's newest (and probably tallest) RAM family comes today, designed for Intel's Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge families, and for AMD's Fusion family.

Speeds vary from 1600 MHz - 2666 MHz, CAS latencies of 9-11, and sizes from 8 GB to 32 GB in Dual and Quad channel configurations in packs of 2 or 4 sticks. A lifetime warranty is included with these products.

By releasing this press release, Kingston may have leaked some "information" on AMD's newest chipsets. They announced support for AMD's Fusion A87, A88, A89, and A78 chipsets. Currently, we know of the A55 & A75 chipsets, with E35 serving the low-end.

The press release follows:

Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the launch of the new Kingston® HyperX® Predator. The new high-performance DRAM module complements the HyperX product range with the fastest speeds, lowest latencies and highest capacities. HyperX Predator is aimed at extreme enthusiasts and overclockers looking to push their systems to the maximum with the fastest speeds and highest performance hardware.
With its new heatspreader, HyperX Predator offers a more aggressive design, which accompanies the look and design of the latest PC hardware, and provides great heat dissipation to optimize memory reliability.
