To my knowledge, Kingston has only used the HyperX moniker for their RAM products. That recently changed with the release of the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX USB flash drive. The banner on the product page proudly proclaims that “It’s HyperX, to go.” That’s right folks. Kingston wants us to believe that this portable storage solution is one of the fastest in the business. That may or may not be the case, but it’s certainly faster than most other flash drives on the market.
