Kingston Technology among Top 10 Semiconductor Chip Buyers in the World

Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced it is among the top 10 list of semiconductor chip buyers globally as determined by Gartner, Inc. Gartner studied the total allocated market looking at total chip spending across many verticals including PC, data center, smart phone, IoT (Internet of Things) and other applications. Kingston is ranked number 8 having spent an estimated $7.84 billion (USD) for 2018, according to Gartner.

Kingston climbed to the top 10 for the first time since Gartner began its design total allocated market (TAM) research in 2007. The increase is fueled in part because Kingston is a top memory manufacturer for many of the OEM and ODMs that produce smart devices and Kingston continues to offer value and service in these market segments. In 2018, Kingston produced over 14 trillion Megabytes of memory across all product lines including DRAM, SSDs and embedded solutions, a massive amount that reinforces its strength, position and importance in the industry.

Gartner stated that chip spending in recent years has been driven mainly by the growth in consumption of PCs and smart phones. Leading OEMs in these areas gained more market share and increased their chip buying power as a result. Gartner further predicts that other growth markets will ignite future demand such as new business opportunities in China focusing on Cloud servers and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints that will arise in and after 2022. With Kingston’s buying power, global partnerships and manufacturing facilities located in China and the Asia-Pacific region, Kingston is positioned to take full advantage of these growth opportunities.

“While server and system memory continue to be the foundation of Kingston’s success, our strength over the past 15 years has been to diversify our product portfolio to address industry changes and adapt to ever-evolving market needs,” said Craig Tilmont, director of marketing, Kingston. “We are one of the top suppliers of SSDs in the channel and have been supplying embedded memory solutions for almost a decade in various industrial applications including medical devices, diagnostic equipment and in-flight entertainment systems. Kingston memory solutions are also found everywhere including consumer products such as fitness trackers, smart watches, robotic vacuums and security video doorbells.”

The following chart from Gartner shows the top 10 OEM chip spending:

For more than 30 years, Kingston has created memory products and storage solutions that empower innovation. Today, Kingston ships to 125 countries and employs over 3,500 people around the world. Kingston develops products to increase productivity and overall system performance, with solutions for servers, desktops, and IoT devices. Kingston makes technology solutions that facilitate people’s everyday needs and supports them wherever they are.

HyperX Alloy Core RGB Keyboard Review

The HyperX Alloy Core RGB Keyboard is an affordable RGB backlit keyboard that aims to give you a great gaming and typing experience while also being a dependable keyboard that doesn’t skimp out on style. So, how good is this keyboard? Let’s find out.

Specifications

HyperX Alloy Core RGB

Type: Membrane
Backlight: RGB (5 Zones Multi-color Customization)
Light effects: 6 LED modes and 3 brightness levels
Connection type: USB 2.0
Polling rate: 1000Hz
Anti-ghosting: Multi-key anti-ghosting
Media control: Yes
Game Mode: Yes
Spill resistance: tested up to 120ml of liquid
OS compatibility: Windows® 10, 8.1, 8, 7

Cable

Type: Attached, braided
Length: 1.8m

Dimensions

Width: 443.20mm
Depth: 175.31mm
Height: 35.68mm
Weight (Keyboard and cable): 1121g

This is an entry-level gaming keyboard that comes with beautiful RGB backlighting. Now first things first, this isn’t a mechanical keyboard. But that doesn’t mean its bad by any means. It’s a membrane keyboard that has really good tactility and pressing buttons is satisfying. Both the gaming and typing experience was enjoyable and I faced no issues which limited my abilities or hindered my experience.

The whole area behind the keycaps is lit and there’s an additional light strip on top of the keyboard. There is one small annoyance with the RGB though. From certain angles, it looks like there are dark spots on the keycaps and it feels like light isn’t passing through it. This seems to be because of the plastic shell under the key. However, this isn’t too big of an issue and only shows up when looking at the keyboard from certain angles

Furthermore, the RGB doesn’t require you to install any software. It comes with dedicated keys for the brightness and colours. There’s also an additional Gaming Key which locks the Windows key so you won’t accidentally hit it while playing. The brightness setting has 3 options. Off, Low Brightness and High Brightness.

The other key controls the pattern, of which there are five. Three of them are different colour cycles while one is a red breathing effect and the last one is a static red backlight.

It also comes with dedicated media keys which is something that even high-end keyboards sometimes lack. You have a set of media playback keys and you also have the volume control keys. These come in pretty handy when consuming media both offline and online.

The keyboard itself is very sturdy and feels heavy at 1.1Kg. The keys are sleek looking and feel a bit rubbery but also smooth. It’s an interesting tactile feeling that I personally liked. The keyboard also has a braided cable so it will last you longer because the cable won’t have issues any time soon.

For people who have snacks and drinks near the keyboard, this keyboard is also spill-resistant so if you drop water or any drink on it, your keyboard won’t die. While it is not advisable to drop any liquid on it, it can withstand 120ml of liquid.

This keyboard comes in at Rs 4,699 and while its competitors are cheaper, this is HyperX’s first foray into the budget gaming keyboard market and they’ve done a very good job.

If you would like to purchase this product, you can do so from our store page which also helps support us.
