With memory prices falling, now is a great time to be looking for memory upgrades. Fall hardware releases are in full swing, there is competition from both Intel and AMD, and the Red brand has thoroughly fixed the memory issues of generations past. No longer do users have to worry about memory compatibility or shopping for expensive AMD-branded kits. With 3200 MHz natively supported on the new Ryzen platform, options for enthusiasts have never been more open.
Kingston is a familiar name when it comes to memory and flash storage. The company's gaming brand "HyperX" has also carved a name for itself with highly successful peripherals, from headsets to mice and, of course, high performance memory kits. The HyperX Fury is designed to be a cost-effective kit, available in 2400–3733 MHz speeds, CL15–19 latencies, single module capacities of 4–32 GB, and kit capacities of 16–128 GB.
The HyperX Fury kit I have for testing today features 2x 16 GB sticks at a Ryzen optimized 3600 MHz speed and 18-22-22-39 timings. Let's find out how the HyperX Fury stacks up in this highly competitive market segment!
