Kingston HyperX Savage 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz Memory Review


Kingston Technology has been around since 1998 and impressing enthusiasts and system builders the whole time. Their HyperX DDR3 memory line consists of a wide range of products. When the X99 chipset motherboards were released, Kingston quickly followed with DDR4 kits. The first to be released war the HyperX Predator DDR4 series, with the HyperX Fury and Savage DDR4 coming shortly thereafter.

The HyperX Savage has become quite popular since the DDR3 version was released. The DDR4 version continues to offer many of the same features. They are available with black medium profile asymmetrical die-cast aluminum heat spreaders and black printed circuit boards. A sculptured design offers an aggressive look that is often lacking in lower profile memory.

Our particular sample has a tight timings of 13-14-14-39, which is quite good for a DDR4 memory kit rated at 2666MHz. We are quite interested to see how the HyperX Savage 2666MHz compared to the HyperX Fury 2666MHz just a little while ago.
