It’s been a year since DDR5 launched and we’re now seeing higher-speed kits with tighter timings at a competitive cost making these DDR5 kits more feasible for users looking to upgrade to either Intel 13th Gen Core CPUs or AMD Ryzen 7000 series. Kingston has updated their Fury Beast line with faster and tighter kits with a touch of RGB. The Kingston Fury Beast RGB 32GB(2x16GB) 6000 MHz CL40 kit will be tested in our labs in time before we review the Intel Core i9 13900K.

Kit of 2: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB
- Frequencies: 4800MHz, 5200MHz, 56000MHz, 6000MHz
- Latencies: CL36, CL38, CL40
- Voltage: 1.1V, 1.25V, 1.35V
- Operating Temperature: 0°C to 85°C

A Closer Look
The new Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR5 comes in the same transparent hard plastic packaging as its non-RGB predecessor. At first glance, you may not see the difference between the two kits unless you notice the transparent bar on the RGB variant.
The same Kingston Fury sticker and warranty pamphlet are present with Fury Beast RGB DDR5.
The Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR5 design is a mix of the DDR4 variant of Fury Beast RGB and the DDR5 Fury Beast. It’s definitely larger than the Fury Beast non-RGB DDR5 at 133.35mm x 42.23mm x 7.1mm
When placed side by side, you can notice the minimal design changes on the Fury Beast DDR5 to make it look more premium and blend with the RGB bar.
Benchmark Setup and Methodology
Gadget Pilipinas’ testing philosophy is to provide detail-oriented results as accurately as possible so that our readers can replicate our tests given that these conditions are met. Different benchmarking apps and sequences are used depending on the component or device being tested.

We use CapFrameX 1.6.6 as our FPS capture and analysis tool for all our gaming benchmarks. The latest build version of Windows 10 and WHQL-certified drivers are used for our benchmarks. Readings such as temperatures and power draws are recorded using HWMonitor, HWInfo64, and other relevant software for cross-checking.
Kingston FURY Beast RGB DDR5 Benchmarks
SuperPI is a single-threaded benchmark application that lets the CPU calculate Pi(π) to the nth digit. In this benchmark, we selected the Pi calculation to 32M, the highest available for the app.
wPrime is a benchmark tool similar to SuperPI, but the former takes on finding prime numbers using Newton’s Method. The benchmark is set to calculate 1024 million prime numbers, and the performance is measured according to calculation time.
AIDA64 Memory Benchmark
AIDA64 is a very popular and powerful monitoring tool, as well as a benchmarking application. AIDA64 is commonly used to stress test CPUs, especially testing if an overclock is stable. We used AIDA64’s Memory Benchmark to measure the data transfer bandwidth of the system memory.
Geekbench is a multi-platform benchmark used to gauge CPU performance and compare them across Windows, Mac, and Mobile. Geekbench 5 is the latest version and doesn’t rely on memory than the previous Geekbench 4, making it a great tool to measure both single-core and multi-core CPU performance.
CINEBENCH R20 & Cinebench R23
Maxon’s Cinebench benchmark is one of the most iconic benchmark applications used by reviewers and enthusiasts. The latest Cinebench R20 uses the latest rendering architectures, including Intel’s Embree ray tracing technology and other advanced features from AMD and Intel that allow users to render the same scene on the same hard. Cinebench R20 uses a larger and more complex testing scene than Cinebench R20 by about 8x computational power and requires 4x the memory.

V-Ray Benchmark is a stand-alone version V-Ray developed by Chaos Group. It is designed to test the CPU and GPU by rendering sample scenes at a fixed amount of time. V-Ray is a plug-in mostly utilized by 3D computer graphics software applications mainly for industrial design, product design, architecture, film, and video game production. V-Ray is not limited to 64-threads as it supports multi and mega-threading.
Handbrake is a top-rated open-source video conversion software that is used by professionals, enthusiasts, and even reviewers as a reference point mainly because of its wide variety of media codecs. The rise of streaming and blogging makes video content, both encoding, and transcoding important for these people, regardless if they’re seasoned professionals or just starting out. Handbrake also takes advantage of AVX-512 and OpenCL to accelerate certain types of media codecs. Our Handbrake benchmark converts a 500MB MP4 video to H.264 to measure the processor’s performance.
Corona Renderer is an unbiased photorealistic render available for Autodesk 3Ds Max, Maxon Cinema 4D, and as a stand-alone application. Its popularity, similar to Blender, led Chaos Group to develop a benchmark version of the app which runs using Corona Renderer 1.3. Workstation systems, especially CPUs, can utilize Corona Benchmark as up to 72 threads can be used in the benchmark, making it very suitable for CPUs with various price segments.
Kingston FURY Beast DDR5 Temperatures
The added RGB LEDs and the faster speed chips results in a 3°C higher temperature than the 5200MHz Fury Beast non RGB kit. There’s nothing to worry about the temperatures albeit you may have higher RAM temps if you populate all four DIMM slots.
The addition of RGB of the Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RGB should not be your buying decision factor but is definitely one of the brightest RGB DDR5 kits in the market. Unlike other brands that have separate AMD and Intel exclusive kits, the Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR5 is both Intel XMP and AMD Expo certified so you won’t have to change RAM kits when you switch from AMD to Intel or vice versa. 6,000 MHz speed is certainly on the fast side as far as memory is concerned albeit it would’ve been nice to see the max variant for the series reach up to 6,400MHz.
Our specific 6000MHz kit retails for Php 8,000 for the 16GB dual kit and Php 16,000 for the 32GB dual kit making it one of the best-value RGB DDR5 kits in the market. For reference, most kits of this price range are either 5200MHz or 5600MHz kit so if you’re after the best bang for your buck memory then the Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR5 is one of the best ones out there.
