So there we have it, another HyperX memory kit and overall, a pretty good showing from the rebranded memory division at Kingston. Although they might be separate brands, the Kingston lineage goes on as the Fury not only does well, but it performs a lot better than I had anticipated. Unlike the DDR3 variant of the Fury kit, today’s DDR4 Fury sample actually has substance to back up the lovely aesthetics; would be nice to have more colours available as that was the main selling point from our perspective.
It overclocks nicely, it supports the latest XMP 2.0 profile for an instant 2400MHz @CL15 timings and it looks pretty damned sweet too. The 16GB 2400MHz kit will set you back around £100 depending on your retailer which not only represents decent value for money, but it shows that as more and more DDR4 kits get released, it saturates it a little pushing pricing down. Is DDR4 at the lowest price point for the remainder of 2015? I hope so as we don’t need another “disaster” in Taiwan where prices need to be hiked; controversial as that may be!
So to ask that ever attainable question, would we buy the HyperX Fury DDR4 memory kit? Well yes we would and if they were to release more colours, we would even buy 2 for X99. It’s worth noting that this also runs in dual channel mode on Intel’s Skylake platform (LGA1151) and is very compatible with this kit and of course, 99% of Non-ECC DDR4 memory sold in quad channel kits. Is the HyperX Fury DDR4 the best kit on the market? Well no, but it’s not designed to be, but it certainly looks to be one of the best kits currently under £100 which is fantastic by all accounts.
£100 for a 16GB kit of DDR4 with great potential is nothing to be sniffed at and in the grand scheme of things, if they were to release more colours, I would certainly say “go for it”. HyperX have done a fantastic job with the Fury DDR4 kit and I am looking forward to seeing what else they can bring to the DDR4 market.
Huge thanks to HyperX for sending in their Fury DDR4 sample.
