HyperX Predator 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 RAM (Desktop Memory) CL16 Review
Posted by Mark Taliaferro on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 - 8:41am
Not too long ago we had the privilege of reviewing HyperX’s Predator DDR42x8Gb dual channel memory kit. The performance was rather impressive and we came away quite pleased. Now we have an opportunity to test the 4x8Gbquad channel version.
The Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4 offer speeds from 3000 MHz to 3333Mhz. They feature very high profile black aluminum heat spreaders with a total memory module height of 53.9mm. At 3200MHz, the HyperX Predator DDR4 16GB kit I am reviewing today is at the extreme high end of the memory speed scale and the fastest DDR4 memory kit that Kingston offers. There is no single thing that is subtle about the Predators.
A rather uncommon feature of the HyperX Predator DDR4 is the use of two different XMP profiles. The sample we’ll be reviewing here has Profile #1 is at the rated 3200 MHz speed, while Profile #2 is at 3000MHz. If for some reason a user is not able to boot with Profile #1, they can select Profile #2 instead. Then the user can fine tune the memory from there.
Kingston's take on HyperX Predator
Prey on the competition
HyperX® Predator DDR4 memory has a fierce new heat spreader design in black aluminum for greater heat dissipation to optimize reliability. The heat spreader and PCB complement the look and design of the latest PC hardware, so you can dominate in HyperX style.
Predator DDR4 delivers blazing fast speeds up to 3333MHz matched with low CL15–CL16 latencies for extreme DDR4 performance, ultra-response multitasking, and an overall faster system. It complements Intel’s 6 and 8 core processors for faster video editing, 3D rendering, and AI processing — and to keep you in the lead while gaming. It’s available in 4GB–16GB modules and in dual and quad channel kits of 8GB–64GB; the kits are rigorously tested for guaranteed compatibility and performance.
Predator DDR4’s Intel XMP-ready profiles are optimized for Intel’s 100 Series chipset, X99 motherboards and Intel Core i7 HEDT processors for compatibility and the highest performance. XMP profiles are hand-tuned so end users can easily overclock their platforms for higher-performing frequencies and lower timings by simply selecting a profile, with no need for manual timing adjustments in BIOS.
HyperX Predator DDR4 keeps its cool even in a deathmatch and takes full advantage of the power efficiency brought by DDR4 for lower power consumption over DDR3. Less power draw results in less heat and higher reliability. HyperX Predator DDR4 is 100-percent factory tested at speed and backed by free technical support and legendary reliability.
