Kingston Technology has launched its new HyperX Plug and Play (PnP) series of high-performance enthusiast memory.
Available through authorised distributors in South Africa, HyperX PnP is the first module to scale to the increased memory performance that forms part of the second generation Intel Core i5 and i7 central processing units.
When plugged into a system deploying the Sandy Bridge chipset, the memory automatically plays at either 1600MHz or 1866MHz in desktop and notebook personal computers (PCs). The modules are compatible with previously released DDR3 systems on the market and programmed using JEDEC-compliant settings.
“Our HyperX engineering team has been thoroughly innovative in designing a memory module that automatically raises performance with no overclocking steps required,” says Grant Rau, business development manager at Kingston South Africa.
“By using JEDEC-compliant settings to create performance timings, enthusiasts can max out native frequencies on current Sandy Bridge systems and older DDR3 machines.”
Installing the HyperX Plug and Play is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the PC. The system automatically recognises the faster memory speed with no further BIOS settings required. Users will notice immediate performance gains as overclocking is automatic.
HyperX Plug and Play is available through Kingston’s channel of authorised distributors. Kingston HyperX memory is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support.
