Kingston, a well-known brand for trust and value for money in storage and dynamic memory modules. I started using Kingston products since I had my first PC. It had 256 MB Kingston valueRAM, and I play GTA Vice City (best game at that time) on it. Well, those days are over, and now we need faster RAM to run modern 4K games (I’m a PC gamer) like Battlefield 4, The Crew, Tomb Raider and more.
Kingston came up with a faster and modern gaming RAM from HyperX gaming lineup, Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 RAM with dynamic frequency. The base frequency on which the RAM run is 2133 MHz and once you overclock your PC it will adjust the frequency accordingly to match the clock speed of the processor.
The RAM sticks are black on the outside and on the inside, the shroud is mad of aluminum to spread the heat faster and keep the module cool. There is a nice HyperX branding on the top of the modules, the heat sink is totally closed with some openings for ventilation which helps in cooling the module a bit faster. The RAM sticks are designed with low profile heatsink making it suitable to build a compact gaming PC.
Kingston HyperX Fury memory comes with HyperX branding on the top of the shroud, gives a nice and classy look to the gaming motherboard. Best if you have an open build PC without cabinets, that will better show off these RAM modules. Also because the RAM is optimized for Intel 100 series and X99 chipsets. The Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 modules consume power as low as 1.2 volts, which is a lot low than the previous DDR3 modules. This power consumption seems low for one module but if you are making a high-end gaming PC and added four of these modules then you’ll be saving a lot.
- Capacity: 8 GB (2 X 4GB)
- Installation: Plug and play
- Speed: 2133MHz (base clock)
- CL14 CAS Latency
- Voltage: 1.2v
We tested the RAM in our gaming rig with the following configuration:
- Windows 10 Pro (64 bit)
- Intel Core i5 6400 @ 2.70 GHz
- Asus Z170 Pro gaming
- ATI Radeon 4GB DDR5
- Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 8 GB kit (2X4GB)
After benchmarking the RAM with AIDA64, Geekbench 4 and MaxxMEM. We got some good results suitable for gaming from this RAM, the results are as follows.
AIDA64 done some Read/Write test, copy test and latency test and reflected these as results, you can check the results below.
Geekbench 4 tested the whole setup started with the CPU and goes all the way up to the Kingston HyperX Fury RAM. Tested the RAM for copy speed, latency, and bandwidth, below are the results.
MaxxMEM2 did the same tests with HyperX Fury; copy, read, write and latency. The latency of this RAM came out to be 66.8 ns which is a little different from other tests. Below are the results.
Testing a gaming RAM can never be completed without playing more games, so I decided to run some 4K games like Battlefield 3. After playing for hours, these RAM modules are cool and keep the game running at steady frame rates.
- Dynamic frequency
- Low profile heat spreader
Kingston has succeeded in making a perfect gaming RAM for low profile gaming setups. Well, there is now a good reason to buy DDR4 RAMs; gaming. Kingston HyperX Fury is a good competitor in DDR4 RAM providing high data rates and low latency at such a good price.
