Kingston has announced the release of new DDR5 RAM sticks that come in plain and RGB flavors.
The Kingston Fury Renegade DDR5 and Fury Renegade DDR5 RGB RAM sticks offer speeds of up to 6400MT/s and fast CL32 times, which will guarantee top performance (at least with DDR5 now, as it stands – we’re still relatively early days with development of the RAM standard).
These Fury modules also come with Intel XMP 3.0 certification to allow for easy overclocking and getting the most out of high-end DDR5 sticks.
The RGB RAM gives you a choice of 16 different preset RGB lighting effects, with Kingston’s Fury Infrared Sync software on hand to make it simple and straightforward to adjust your colors and whatever nifty effect you want (flashing, switching colors and so on) .
The Fury Renegade DDR5 RAM can be purchased in separate 16GB modules or in the form of a 32GB kit (which is two 16GB sticks). We’re assuming these products will go on sale soon, but Kingston has yet to release pricing details or exact launch timing.
Review: Fast and smart-looking – but where will prices launch?
Not everyone cares what their RAM looks like, of course, or any of its components, but for some people, a PC build can be like a tech art installation, or at least a project that can be themed or made to look special one way or another. And if you want good-looking RAM sticks, Kingston’s Fury Renegade works for us in that regard.
Certainly, in the early days of DDR5, RGB modules were hard to come by, and while there are more of them now, they’re still not exactly plentiful – and we’re not all that interested in what some of them look like (the Corsair Dominator DDR5 looks disappointing to me). us, although we appreciate that this is a very subjective thing).
The Fury Renegade is a smartly designed stick and the RGB lighting is the icing on the cake for anyone who likes shiny things on their PC case (although even the base model with the black and silver heatsink looks good too).
Of course, it also doesn’t hurt to have that super-fast performance, which is basically what DDR5 is all about. The remaining question is how expensive these sticks will launch, and while DDR5 prices have dropped quite a bit in recent times, we expect the Fury Renegade modules to weigh in a bit.
