Earlier this year, it was announced that Kingston entered an agreement with HP Inc to sell the HyperX gaming division for $425 Million. The deal included the HyperX branding as well as Kingston HyperX’s entire peripheral lineup, leaving Kingston to retain its DRAM, flash, and SSD products for gamers and enthusiasts. As the deal recently came to a close, a lot of us were curious if Kingston were to retain the HyperX moniker for its gaming/enthusiast-oriented products or create a new gaming line. Well, it seems our questions are answered with the launch of Kingston’s first product since the acquisition, the Kingston FURY Renegade RGB DDR4 Memory.
Kingston FURY is the brand’s next generation of performance memory and storage solutions geared for PC enthusiasts, gamers, and content creators. With a longstanding 19 years as a market leader, Kingston FURY has evolved from a product category to a full-fledged performance and enthusiasts gaming brand effectively replacing the HyperX banner which was sold off to HP Inc.
Kingston released three product categories for the first FURY memory gaming lineup. Kingston FURY Impact represents SODIMM DDR4 modules with kit sizes ranging from 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB and a max speed of 32,00 Mhz. Kingston FURY beast DDR4 memory modules come in black and RGB options with a maximum kit size of 128GB and speeds up to 3,733 Mhz. Finally, Kingston FURY Renegade which is the current flagship product for the DDR4 line comes with up to a 256GB kit size as well as speeds up to 4,600Mhz for the RGB variant and 5,333 Mhz for the non-RGB variants. In this review, we’ll be focusing on the Kingston FURY Renegade RGB 16GB (2x8GB) 4600Mhz kit.
