Kingston HyperX 1866Mhz


Results Analysis

Unfortunately, with limited triple channel memory to compare the HyperX modules too, at stock speeds, it wasn’t much of a contest.

The much higher frequency of the Kingston HyperX 1866MHz RAM meant that the value OCZ Gold memory wasn’t able to keep up and especially in the bandwidth tests, lagged far behind.

With both memory sets using CL9 timings, the latencies of the kits are comparable and it’s more than evident that the HyperX modules perform much better with low latencies for both the Sisoft and Lavalys Everest benchmarks. Read, write and copy speeds show the Kingston RAM to be head and shoulders above OCZ’s offering, outperforming it by around 5000MB/s in each test.

Clearly, we can’t be too sure about the performance of the Kingston 1866MHZ CL9 kit as we don’t have a kit of similar order to compare too. However, as it stands, it doesn’t look bad.



The kit comes in at $248.00 which converts to approximately £155.00 – it’s expensive but not very excessively so, especially considering the 1866MHz stock speed.
