Kingston HyperX Savage (32GB) DDR3 Memory Review



For bench-marking memory bandwidth we use AIDA64’s ‘Cache and Memory Benchmark’


As we can see the benchmark really likes higher clocked memory as opposed to lower timings at lower speeds. The 2400MHz configuration takes the cake easily.


For bench-marking memory latency we use AIDA64’s ‘Cache and Memory Benchmark’


As we can see the lowest speed and tightest timings come in last. The 2400MHz kit is about 10% faster than the 2133 kit and around 15% faster than the 1600MHz kit.


Maxon’s Cinebench is a benchmarking tool based on their Cinema 4D software. It measures CPU performance by rendering a photo realistic 3D scene.


Cinebench was almost dead even with around 3% separating the best from the worst, Cinebench obviously doesn’t seem to care what kind of RAM it is running.


In our Photoshop CC test, we employ the Radial Blur Test for measuring CPU performance. It works by applying a complex Radial Blur filter to a high-resolution image (4500 x 3000), and measuring the time it takes to finish the task.


Usually Photoshop likes tighter timings rather than higher speeds, but this time the higher clocked configuration won out. The 2400MHz kit won out by around 35%

Kingston, an industry leader in Desktop Memory has released their new HyperX line; Savage. Does this memory live up to its Branding? Let's find out. Today we have the HyperX Savage for review, which is the spiritual successor to the HyperX Genesis that was their high end performance and overclocking RAM aimed at enthusiasts. While not the exciting and new DDR4 standard that doesn't mean that this RAM is without merit. For most of us DDR3 still makes a lot of sense and the performance difference currently isn't that much. PACKAGING, PRICING AND SPECIFICATIONS  The kit comes in a rectangular plastic…

Review Overview

Build quality

One of The Best!

While we couldn't get over 2400MHz and had to hit 1.68V to get it stable it ran rock solid at 2133MHz and performed like a champ. We also love the low profile design, styling and build quality. The lifetime warranty scores top marks with us as well.
