HyperX Announces New Impact DDR4 SODIMM Memory Amid Record Levels of Notebook and PC Sales

Powerful SODIMM Performance Memory Enhances PCs for Working, Schooling or Gaming From Home

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Sept. 29, 2020 – As households across the nation continue to work from home and school from home, HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, Inc., today announced the release of new HyperX Impact DDR4 SODIMM memory for enhanced performance in notebooks and small form factor PCs. The new single rank 16GB Impact DDR4 SODIMM memory is available as single modules and in various kit configurations from 8GB to 64GB to help boost PC performance for a range of working, gaming, and schooling needs.

“The new Impact DDR4 SODIMM utilizes the latest technology to offer high performance coupled with maximum reliability,” said Kristy Ernt, DRAM business manager, HyperX. “The Plug N Play functionality of HyperX Impact DDR4 SODIMM memory increases overall performance in notebooks and small form factor PCs for people to maximize performance across applications.”

HyperX Impact DDR4 SODIMM memory offers a Plug N Play1 feature for automatic overclocking to the highest published frequency within the system speed allowance, eliminating the need for manual tuning. In addition, Impact DDR4 SODIMM is certified Ready for AMD Ryzen and Intel XMP-ready, offering seamless compatibility.

Notebook sales continue to surge with demand remaining steady to help fuel enhanced work and school from home needs. Michael Lagoni, CEO of leading retail intelligence firm Stackline noted, “In August, ecommerce sales in the notebook category grew more than 37.2 percent over the previous year, which is continuing to show signs that this accelerated demand will continue over the longer-term.”

Impact DDR4 SODIMMs offer higher performance with lower power consumption than traditional overclocked memory, enabling users to optimize notebook performance. Utilizing standard DDR4 voltage at 1.2V with Plug N Play automatic overclocking, less power is consumed and thereby reduced heat, providing a quieter overall computing experience.


HyperX Impact DDR4 SODIMM modules are 100 percent factory tested at speed and backed by a lifetime warranty. HyperX Impact DDR4 SODIMM modules are available through HyperX’s network of retail and e-tail outlets.
