Kingston started back in 1987 entering the market with just a single product at the time. Founders John Du and David Sun noticed a shortage of surface-mount memory chips and introduced their memory module that would redefine industry standards for years to come. Since then Kingston has come a long ways and now offers even more memory based products and peripherals.
Kingston has also since their original launch introduced their HyperX range of products which are designed to appeal to gamers and enthusiasts alike. The HyperX range offers quality and performance products including SSDs, USBs, headsets and more. HyperX is also so well-known and gamer orientated they even sponsor the Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) eSports team who also have their own specially designed range of HyperX products.
Today I will be taking a look at one of their latest USB drives on the market by way of the Kingston HyperX Fury. The drive comes in 16/32/64GB capacities. The Fury USB drive is said to offer read speeds of 90MB/s and write speeds up to 30MB/s. It is a USB3 based USB drive and depending on the size you get it also comes in a few different colours.
