Here at Computex, there are times when you would receive unexpected call from brands that suddenly offer to show their new products outside of the show floor. In this particular case, it was Kingston who showed up with two brand new products that will be heading to the market soon.
One of them is the new Predator DDR4 RAM which comes with a much slimmer heatsink that its predecessor. By having sleeker profile, this allows users to utilize the RAM without interfering other components within their PC. Additionally, the new Predator DDR4 RAM will have speed of up to 3,300MHz and latency of between CL15 to CL16.
At this moment, the available capacity and pricing for the new Predator DDR4 RAM series has yet been revealed by Kingston although we were informed that it will be launched next week. For DDR3 users, fret not – the new Predator DDR3 RAM series will feature the new heatsink as well.
Alongside the RAM, Kingston will also be releasing the HyperX CloudX Pro Gaming Headset which is the company’s first ever headset targeted for console gamers. Even though it is made and officially licensed for Xbox One, gamers still able to utilize the headset for their PC.
Built with a pair of 53mm neodymium drivers, the CloudX Pro Gaming headset also features aluminum frame and memory foams on its ear cups as well as headband. It also comes with a detachable noise-suppressing microphone in addition to extra ear cups, extension cable, and carrying case.
As for pricing, Kingston is still keeping it as a secret at the moment although gamers should be able to see it at stores in June. Meanwhile, Kingston has also showed us its newly released SSDNow UV400 solid state drive which is the company’s first TLC NAND SSD to be launched globally.
Since it uses TLC NAND, the UV400’s performance is not groundbreaking for an SSD although it is still faster than a 7200rpm hard disk drive. Nevertheless, this allows the SSD to be priced at much lower pricing which made it suitable for price-conscious and entry-level users.
That being said, Kingston didn’t provide any pricing for us although we did spot a local retailer selling it for between RM 149 to RM 499. For more information on the new SSDNow UV400, head on to Kingston’s official website.
