Kingston Technology, the largest independent memory module maker in the world, has announced all-new black printed circuit boards (PCB) on two of its HyperX product lines. Kingston’s high-performance HyperX Beast and entry-level enthusiast ‘black’ lines will incorporate black PCB under the signature heatspreader designs.


HyperX Beast, a part of the Predator family, matches large capacity with ultra-fast frequencies and unique new heatspreader. Now featuring black PCB, HyperX Beast is available in various dual- and quad-channel kits in capacities from 8GB to 64GB and speeds up to an ultra-fast 2400MHz. The product line is designed for hardcore gamers, PC modders, content creators and overclockers. The 2133MHz, 64GB and 2400MHz, 32GB Beast memory are the fastest and highest capacity certified Intel XMP-ready kits on the market.

HyperX black is available as single 4GB and 8GB module or as an 8GB or 16GB dual-channel kit in 1333- or 1600MHz frequencies. HyperX black is ideal as a cost-efficient performance upgrade for an overall faster system or for increased in-game frames-per-second rate.

“Our customers and fans have asked us to come out with HyperX memory featuring black PCBs to better match their system designs. We are able to match good looks with high performance. The black on black combination allows for easy pairing with any colour component on the market,” said Ann Keefe, regional director of Kingston’s division in UK and Ireland.
