HyperX Releases ‘Impact’ SO-DIMMs, FURY SSD, White Headset and Mouse Pad at COMPUTEX TAIPEI

COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2014, Kelti International Building 14F -- HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the launch of HyperX Impact memory for gamers and enthusiasts who want to upgrade and boost performance in their laptops and small form factor PCs. HyperX Impact replaces the current SO-DIMM offerings under Genesis, PnP and LoVo into one family.

HyperX Impact achieved a world record for the fastest SO-DIMM frequency running at 2666MHz. A video of that performance can be seen here. HyperX Impact is available in frequencies ranging from 1600MHz to an industry-fastest 2400MHz in capacities of 4GB and 8GB single modules and 8GB to 16GB kits of 2. Voltages start at 1.35V and upgrading is effortless as Plug and Play (PnP) functionality is designed into every module to automatically overclock within the system speed allowance without manual tuning. HyperX Impact can also be used to upgrade small form factor systems such as the Gigabyte BRIX, Intel NUC and ZOTAC ZBOX.

For entry-level gamers, HyperX FURY SSD features locked synchronous NAND and is powered by the LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller with SATA Rev 3.0 (6GB/s) performance. The new, entry-level solid-state drive offers exceptional read/write speeds of 500/500MB/s and is ideal for quicker boot times, application loading and file execution. It is available in 120GB and 240GB capacities. HyperX FURY SSD is the latest addition to the HyperX FURY family as it joins the recently released HyperX FURY DRAM.

HyperX FURY SSD is available as a standalone drive with an included 7mm to 9.5mm adapter. It is backed by a three-year warranty, free live technical support and legendary HyperX reliability.

HyperX also announces the following at COMPUTEX TAIPEI:

  • “HOT” HyperX OC Takeover competition. Overclockers from around the world will compete for $10,000 (USD) in total prize money for the top marks in Maximum Memory Frequency, SuperPi 32M and XTU with a secret processor to be revealed at the event. Following Taiwan, HyperX will stage four regional online HOT tournaments on hwbot.org to lead up to a $15,000 (USD) World Finals held at 2015 International CES®.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"For over 25 years we have been working with a lot of enterprise customers and we have seen how companies create applications.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.
