Kingston’s HyperX division introduced a stack of new memory modules at CES 2020. Firstly, the company added 32 GB unbuffered DIMMs and SO-DIMMs to its Fury and Impact families. Secondly, the Fury and Fury RGB lineups now include DDR4-3600 as well as DDR4-3700 modules.

32 GB: Now From Kingston HyperX

Kingston’s 32 GB HyperX Fury unbuffered DIMMs as well as 32 GB Impact unbuffered SO-DIMMs are based on 16 Gb memory chips from an undisclosed supplier. According to the manufacturer, the 32 GB modules feature XMP SPD profiles for easier speed setting and are compatible with the latest platforms from AMD and Intel.

The desktop-oriented 32 GB HyperX Fury UDIMMs are rated for DDR4-2400/CL15 at 1.2V, DDR4-2666/CL16 at 1.2 V, DDR4-3000/CL16 at 1.35 V, and at DDR4-3200/CL16 at 1.35 V operation. These modules are equipped with aluminum heat spreaders and will be available solo, in 64 GB duos, and in 128 GB quartets.

Prices of the modules will vary from $157 for a 32 GB DDR4-2400/CL15 UDIMM to $673 for a 128 GB DDR4-3200/CL16 kit.

The notebook-bound 32 GB HyperX Impact SO-DIMMs all feature a 1.2 V VDDQ and are rated for DDR4-2400/CL15, DDR4-2600/CL16, DDR4-2933/CL17, and DDR4-3200/CL20. In a bid to maintain compatibility with as many laptops as possible, these modules do not have metallic heat spreaders and will be available as single modules and as 64 GB kits. One 32 GB HyperX Impact DDR4-2400/CL15 module is priced at $158, whereas a 64 GB DDR4-3200/CL20 kit costs $403.

Furious DDR4-3600 & DDR4-3700

The HyperX Fury and HyperX Fury RGB modules are not Kingston’s top-of-the-range offerings aimed at PCs where every bit of performance matters, this is a prerogative of the HyperX Predator lineup. Nonetheless, both HyperX Fury and HyperX Fury RGB families are gradually increasing performance, so from now on the company offers 8 GB and 16 GB UDIMMs rated for DDR4-3600/CL17 and DDR4-3700/CL19 at 1.35 V operation.

Quite naturally, faster HyperX Fury and HyperX Fury RGB memory modules cost more than slower ones. The 32 GB HyperX Fury DDR4-3700/CL19 kit carries a price tag of $215, whereas the blingy 32 GB HyperX Fury DDR4-3700/CL19 kit is priced at $227.

Availability

At press time, HyperX Gaming website did not list the new 32 GB UDIMMs nor the DDR4-3600 and DDR4-3700 offerings. But since Kingston has already published MSRPs for the new products, expect them to hit the market shortly.

    I'll take 10 of the HX432C16FB3K/64 CL16 64GB(kit of 2 32GB) for $33.70. I figure $337.00 is a fair price for 640GB of 3200 CL16 DDR4 ram. Reply

    I'll take a 64GB kit of HX424S15IBK2/64 for my low-power 200 MHz build. Reply

    Its either 33.70$ or 33 700$... Reply

    Where’s the ECC? Reply

    I was wondering the same thing.
    3200 speed is needed, can't buy it anywhere.

    This is a pain... It' pretty hard to pick a RAM for a ThreadRipper build that is
    - ECC
    - compatible (so UDIMM and preferably on a HCL of the motherboard)
    - fast
    - big enough

    All ECC ram is going to stick with JEDEC approved speeds, so max is 2666 for now. But if you're going to populate all 8 slots, you're going to be limited in speed anyways if you want to memory to remain sychronized with the IF clock (for Zen 3). So 2666 x8 is actually very practical in this case.

    Chipmakers haven't made 32GB unbufferred modules yet in ECC AFAIK. Samsung makes these and they also make ECC memory, yet they choose to only offer non-ECC for now. This is really the unfortunate part. I think they'd rather have you buy the super expensive registered DIMMs instead

    I would be OK-ish with registered DIMM prices but they are not compatible with TR :-/ Reply

    Yeah, only epyc AFAIK supports rdimms Reply

    Heat spreaders are fine until you fully populate the RAM or the CPU cooler hits these oversized modules with fancy cooling.
    I prefer more ECC UDIMMs without the need for fancy cooling. Bit-flips are happening more often as you use larger capacity modules and faster speeds. Doesn't matter for games and frequent rebooters. It does affect long term users like me with documents/apps left open and infrequent reboots.
