Kingston Also Announces the HyperX Fury RGB SSD

In addition to the Savage EXO, Kingston also announced the HyperX Fury RGB series internal SSDs. These drives are characterized by RGB LED diffusers lining the top panels of the drives. Besides SATA 6 Gbps and SATA Power, each drive features a micro USB port that lets you not only use it as a portable drive, but also lets you plug the drive either into a standardized ARGB header of your lighting controller, or a USB header on your motherboard, for software control. The drive is sold in two packages - the base package includes only the drive and a license to Acronis True Image. The Bundle package, on the other hand, also includes a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch spacer, a portable SSD enclosure, USB cables, and a multi-function screwdriver.

Moving on to the drive itself, the HyperX Fury RGB combines a Marvell 88SS1074 controller with 3D TLC NAND flash memory. The drive comes in capacities of 240 GB, 480 GB, and 960 GB. Sequential transfer rates for all models is rated at up to 550 MB/s reads, with up to 480 MB/s writes, although you could expect reduced performance in the USB-powered external drive mode. Endurance numbers (total bytes written) are 120 TB, 240 TB, and 480 TB, for the 240 GB, 480 GB, and 960 GB variants, respectively. The company didn't reveal pricing.

I cannot believe we are making rbg ssd..........dear lord. We really are going backwards in evolution. But on a side note, a super cool idea including the enclosure to give you the option of making it a portable drive. I would like to see more manufacturers do that wtihout shining lights.....

Shouldn't have joked about "hmm, when we are going to have RGB SSDs" when this RGB madness started. :D

well that sadly is todays builders strong selling points . sure aint innovation support or anything practical . if you cant advance the tech you got to do something to make it sell . did they even say if it was 290 color 20 way user programmable RGB lighting ? cause it seems that what get advanced now not anything with the hardware and its use or performance...lol...

Management: How do we reduce this overstock of crappy drives?
Marketing: Lets slap them into gaudy cases that light up yet are cheap, then charge more and sell them to stupid people.
