Introduction

Here we have today some of Kingston’s popular HyperX Genesis series. This series has been very popular with the PC games and enthusiasts who want high speeds and high performance. Due to its natural high voltage and MHz performance at stock these sticks are already worth the buy, however We are not sure about how high these sticks can be overclocked though, so we shall perform our tests and put this Kingston 4GB DDR3-2133 HyperX Genesis sticks to the test. DDR3 memory offers faster speeds, lower latencies, higher data bandwidths and lower power consumption.  HyperX DDR3 modules are available in single, dual and triple-channel memory kits.

About Manufacture

*Kingston Technology Company, Inc. is the world’s independent memory leader.

Founded in 1987 with a single product offering, Kingston® now offers more than 2,000 memory products that support nearly every device that uses memory, from computers, servers and printers to MP3 players, digital cameras and mobile phones. In 2010, the company's sales reached $6.5 billion.

Kingston Technology grew out of a severe shortage of surface-mount memory chips in the high-tech marketplace in the 1980s. They put their engineering expertise to work and designed a new Single In-Line Memory Module (SIMM) that used readily available, older technology through-hole components. A new industry standard was born — and, on October 17, 1987, so was Kingston Technology.*
