Kingston has introduced a new brand – Kingston FURY – under which products for gamers and enthusiasts will be offered. We will be reviewing the 16GB (2x8GB) Kingston FURY Renegade RGB DDR4- 4600Mhz dual-channel kit. The modules are very similar to the top bars of the previously well-known HyperX Predator series.
At launch, the Kingston FURY brand will offer only high-speed RAM, flash drives and high-performance SSDs. In the future, the range of devices will expand. Kingston FURY Renegade for extreme gamers, Kingston FURY Beast for mainstream PC gamers, and Kingston FURY Impact for notebook users.
The new enthusiastic line of Kingston FURY Renegade includes single modules of 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB, as well as two and even 4-channel memory kits with a total capacity of up to 256 GB (8×32 GB).
Kingston FURY Renegade RGB DDR4
The kit comes in a medium-sized box. The packaging has a light design and a simple design. The memory sticks are also supplied with a brief paper instruction and a sticker with the logo of the new Kingston FURY series.
In appearance, Kingston FURY Renegade RGB modules are very similar to the HyperX Predator series. It also uses composite aluminium heatsinks to cool the memory chips. The side panels are fitted with asymmetrical decorative overlays.
On the front side in the central part of the module, there is also a large logo of the series. Closer to the ends, the DDR4 memory standard and the name of the line of modules are designated – Renegade.
In the central part of the cooler, there is a sticker with service information with the name of the kit, which also indicates that the modules are assembled in Taiwan.
The overall dimensions of the equipped RAM strip with a cooler are 133.35 × 42.2 × 8.3 mm.
Kingston Fury CTRL
To control the backlight, the manufacturer recommends using the Fury CTRL application. However, you can also use the HyperX Ngenuity application. The function and setup of the Fury CTRL are the same as the HyperX Ngenuity.
The Fury CTRL offers several modes with options to set the brightness of the glow and also in some cases the speed of the effect.
Of course, you can use proprietary applications of motherboard manufacturers to customize the illumination. Often, such software can synchronize the backlighting of all system elements with similar options. Kingston FURY Renegade RGB supports utilities from ASUS, MSI, GIGABYTE and ASRock.
The 16 GB Kingston FURY Renegade DDR4-4600 set is enough for gaming tasks, but it makes more sense to take the 32 GB set since this is already a kind of mainstream for demanding AAA-class titles. This set is quite versatile and can be used on any platform.
The Kingston FURY Renegade KF430C15RBAK2/16 kit is based on SKhynix DJR chips. In general, they show good results in terms of frequency. I did succeed in significantly reducing the timings and increasing the memory speed. 4600Mhz speed is more than enough for most daily tasks with AAA gaming and heavier loads that require fast speed.
