Kingston has released its new HyperX plug and play (PnP) series which is a collection of memory kits that utilize modules which are capable of working at frequencies of either 1,600 MHz or 1,866 MHz. This memory module is designed specifically for use with desktops and laptops powered by the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing units.

There are six kits in total, all of them composed of two kits, meaning that modules of 2 GB and 4 GB are used. There are two Dual in-line Memory Module (DIMM) kits, while the other four come in the Small Outline In-line Memory Module (SODIMM) form factor.

The modules are programmed using Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further basic input/output system (BIOS) settings required.
