Kingston has launched new memory modules in the HyperX Savage line. The modules are targeted at the enthusiast segment and will be replacing HyperX’s mid-tier Genesis line.
Featuring a bright red heatspreader cast out of aluminium, the Savage line of memory modules are designed to offer high performance and reliability. With dimensions of 133.35 mm x 32.8 mm, the modules are fairly low profile and are ideal in builds that feature large CPU coolers like the Noctua NH-D15. We first saw this memory back in Taipei at Computex 2014 and were given the low-down on the company’s efforts to re-brand their three different tiers of memory into HyperX Fury for entry-level gamers (to replace Blu), HyperX Savage for mid-level gamers (to replace Genesis) and HyperX Predator which will remain the top end line of HyperX products.
The HyperX Savage memory modules will be available in 4 GB and 8 GB as single modules, and from 8 GB up to 32 GB as dual-channel and quad-channel kits. Frequencies range from 1600MHz, 1866MHz, 2133MHz and 2400MHz, while CAS latency is either CL9 or CL11, based on the model. The memory modules are compatible with a wide variety of Intel chipsets like the H67, H97, P67, Z68, Z77, Z87, Z97 and H61, as well as A75, A87, A88, A89, A78 and E35 chipsets from AMD.
As with all HyperX modules, the Savage line is backed by a lifetime warranty.
