HyperX, a division of the Kingston Technology Company, announced the world’s fastest DDR 128GB memory kit on May 11, boasting speeds of 3000MHz. The kit is made of eight 16GB HyperX Predator modules in quad-channel configuration, and it has officially broken speed records since its debut.
To do so, the product was hooked up to a MSI X99 MPOWER motherboard in its eight-module configuration, along with an Intel Core i7 5820K processor. It recorded 16-16-16-36 timings, and its XMP profiles provided stable overclocking.
The company will debut a series of high performance systems with 16GB modules at Computex in Taipei, which begins on June 1. The Predator M.2 PCIe SSD powers these products, and it is designed to deliver speeds of 1400MB/s read and 1000MB/s write.
HyperX has confirmed that it will host a live demo featuring some of its new items during the HyperX Roadshow Experience, which takes place from June 4 through June 7.

The division of the Kingston Technology Company has been in business since 2002. HyperX, which is headquartered in California, continues to produce memory products alongside its parent company.
At the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, Kingston announced the new HyperX Savage SSD, according to Tom’s Hardware. Since then, the company has expanded its product line with both RAM and SSD products.

However, it isn’t the only company attempting to make a splash in the market. Most notably, Fixstars recently made headlines when announced that it would be releasing the world’s first 6TB SSD, according to ExtremeTech. Fixstars’ lineup already included 1TB and 3TB SSDs at the time of the announcement. All three devices will have a 2.5-inch form factor at the time of shipping and use 19nm NAND flash.
Although companies continue to generate excitement over these products, the price tag on many of them may eventually cause sticker shock.
