Contents (maximize to view)

The adoption of high-speed DDR5 memory kits has been slow mainly due to the cost associated with higher-speed kits. There’s also the problem with yields, stability, and compatibility as DDR5 is still relatively new in the market. One clear indicator that market prices are falling is that brands release various speeds and capacity configurations. Today, we have Kingston’s latest model from the Fury series, the Fury Renegade RGB 32GB(2x16GB) DDR5 7200MHz kit. Let’s take a look if the faster speed translates to better performance.

Kingston FURY Renegade RGB DDR5 – Unboxing and First Impressions

Kingston retained the same FURY Renegade packaging design with updated DDR5 markers to easily distinguish it from the last generation’s FURY Renegade. The back has a beautiful shot with four sticks installed on the motherboard. The back also shows the FURY Renegade’s compatibility with different motherboard RGB lighting sync.

The new Kingston Fury Renegade DDR5 has a two-tone silver and white finish on its heat-spreader design. Whine light is shined the reflective surface blends with the white finish on the device.

The design of the Kingston Fury Renegade makes it look bulkier despite the premium two-tone design. The silver accents stick out. Personally, I prefer the Fury Renegades DDR4’s design but the white option on the Fury Renegade DDR5 is refreshing.

The new Fury Renegade DDR5 has an uneven LED lightbar which should bring in more RGB illumination. However, you may run into clearance issues if you’re using an air cooler since the vertical height is higher versus last year’s Fury Renegade.

Kingston Fury Renegade DDR5 Review Procyon Benchmark

Procyon benchmark suite is developed by the UL, the same team behind 3DMark and PCMark benchmarks. The UL Procycon video editing benchmark uses Adobe Premiere in a typical video editing workflow. The benchmark starts by importing two video project files with various edits, adjustments, and effects – the second project uses several GPU-accelerated effects. Each project is exported in 1080p with H.264 encoding and again in 4K with HEVC H.265. The reported score is based on the time taken to export all four videos. 

wPrime 1024M

The Kingston Fury Renegade DDR5 is the fastest DDR5 kit in our test suite and it’s also the hottest at 63.8°C. That said, the lower-tier Fury Beast 6000MHz kits also peaked at the same temps so considering the Fury Renegade’s spec, I’d say that it’s on the cooler side.

Conclusion

Kingston Fury Renegade 32GB 7200MHZ DDR5 CL38 Review 63

The Kingston Fury Renegade continues to be Kingston’s flagship memory line with the latest DDR5 series. Design-wise, I’d prefer the older line but it’s something that doesn’t affect its performance. Speaking of performance, the Kingston Fury Renegade definitely tops our test suite with better numbers against the closest specced memory, the TForce Delta RGB 7000MHz. Overall, the Kingston Fury Renegade is one of the best high-performance kits available in the market. Sure it commands a premium price over other kits but its QVL compatibility is its advantage, especially for those switching from AMD to Intel or vice versa. That said, it’s a great kit to consider buying provided it’s available in your region.
