The memory market is not entirely about the big brands. There are also interesting small manufacturers trying to make a name for themselves and today we’re going to check out one of them. Hopefully there will be positively surprised.
Not many people have ever heard of a memory brand called Kingmax. This comes at no surprise as most of Kingmax’s lineup are very obscure entry-level products that barely attract anyone’s attention.

We don’t doubt they can, but it would be slightly less confusing had Kingmax added CPU requirements to the support list.
