Kingston HyperX

22 - 24 April 2016 | Written by Maxxum

Computer hardware (let alone gaming oriented hardware) has been a passion of mine since 1998 when I began modding otherwise perfectly functional systems, and it's always a pleasure to speak with hardware oriented companies as design (read: fashion) and technology are becoming fantastically intertwined. 10 years ago I wouldn't have needed a glass computer case with multi-colored DIMMs and matching LED equipped cooling fans... now it's a statement to who am I when people see my primary system and ask, "Is that a computer?!".

Kingston proudly carries a gaming fashion torch at PAX, and every year has a new, advanced computer system equipped with their latest offerings to demonstrate how one can accessorize a gaming rig with HyperX peripherals. Foremost at the Kingston booth is the "Cloud" series of headsets, prominently on display for gamers to test their sound on current games - at the rear are cases adorned with gaming hardware like glass encased jewelry at Tiffany's. To the sides are rock-star gaming professionals meeting with fans, and signing autographs... it's the closest thing to computer haute couture I've seen this year.

We spoke with David Leong, the Public Relations Manager for Kingston Technology about their current and upcoming hardware line-up:


End of line.
