Kingston’s high-performance division HyperX recently announced the availability of a slew of new Predator DDR4 memory kits based on DIMMs capable of reaching 4,000 MHz at 1.35 volts.

HyperX has added six new speed tiers to the lineup made up of individual DIMMs as well as kits of multiple sticks. Voltage is rated at 1.35V across the lineup. The kits and DIMMs being added to the lineup are listed below along with their rated CAS latencies. They reportedly all support built-in XMP profiles.

  • 2,400 MHz at CL12
  • 2,666 MHz at CL13
  • 3,000 MHz at CL15
  • 3,333 MHz at CL16
  • 3,600 MHz at CL17
  • 4,000 MHz at CL19

The majority of kits top out at 64GB, but HyperX did add a 128GB (eight DIMM) kit running at 3,000 MHz and CL15. At the high end is a single 4,000 MHz 16GB (2x8GB) kit (HX440C19PB3K2/16) running at CL19.

The Tech Report reports that the new kits are available now, but looking around online they do not appear to be listed at retailers quite yet so pricing information is unknown. I would expect the high capacity and high-speed kits to carry a decent premium though!

In any case, if you are in the market for a high-end Ryzen, ThreadRipper, or Skylake-X build these may be worth checking out.

Tim, their website says supports intel and no mention of amd, as is the case with almost all new high end memory releases

so frustrating

do you have any documentation about being amd ready as well?

thanks in advance

Not yet, no. That's a good point though, Ryzen can be picky about what it will work with, esp. at these speeds. They are mainly aimed at Intel / X299, we may have to wait for reviews to test AMD compatibility at that voltage and those speeds/CL. Hmm :/

the new microcode, being officially released soon, i hope will do the trick, especially since it is suppose to allow speeds up to 4ghz and have much more granular settings

btw, huge drop on ryzen 7 pricing as of today

crazy good prices
