Kingston Technology Launches HyperX Plug and Play High Performance Memory

Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the new HyperX Plug and Play (PnP) series of high-performance enthusiast memory. HyperX PnP are the first modules to scale the higher memory heights that are a part of the second generation Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs. The memory is programmed with faster frequencies and when 'plugged' into a system using the Sandy Bridge chipset, will automatically 'play' at either 1600MHz or 1866MHz in both desktop and notebook PCs.

The modules are programmed using JEDEC-compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further BIOS settings required. Users will notice performance gains as overclocking is automatic with the HyperX Plug and Play modules. In addition, the modules are backwards compatible with previously released DDR3 systems on the market.

"The HyperX engineering team has been thoroughly innovative in designing a memory module that automatically raises performance with no overclocking steps required," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. "By using JEDEC-compliant settings to create performance timings, enthusiasts can max out native frequencies on current Sandy Bridge systems and older DDR3 machines."

HyperX Plug and Play is available through Kingston's channel of authorized distributors, resellers, e-tailers and retailers. Kingston HyperX memory is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support.

In the world we live in, not many people have came across bios, let alone know how to use it. Please think about the noobs (and the amount of money you can make off them).

I thought it was "plug and play" like you could plug it in while the system was already on! I was gonna say "now thats cool"...

though the same. After reading the article I thought of how many people are going to fry there mobos after plugging in the modules while the power is on. Misleading product titles :shadedshu

^plugging mem while system is on will fry the mobo? didnt know that.
i once plugged in a hard drive and the system simply switched off.

Oh, so all HyperX RAMs come with speed-holes now? Neat.

Anybody who wanted to run his high speed RAM at the spec'ed speeds but with the processor unoverclocked knows that not everything is do-able in BIOS. This is a new Sandy Bridge standard or feature: your RAM will just run at the speed its designed for. I like.

it wont fry the mobo to put a module in the slot, while its on... it can even be read with tools like SPDtool. you just have to be sure that the module is straight when putting it into the slot, and that youre fast, and do it with one serious push... did it when i needed to rewrite the broken SPD on a Crucial Ballistik (it somehow broke by itself, dont ask how:D)
i dont advertise it to do it tho, no guerantee for trying it :P

Reminds me of hot flashing other things like BIOSes. Make you nervous for a few secs.

indeed! and i killed a board with it once, because i did it wrong (one side was faster seated in the slot, then the other)... nothing important tho:p
