Kingston launches entry-level HyperX Fury RAM

Kingston's HyperX Fury adds a new entry point to the gamer-oriented family, offering 4GB and 8GB modules in a choice of four colours.

Memory giant Kingston has announced a new line of memory modules for gamers and overclockers on a budget: the HyperX Fury range.

Designed as a new entry-point for the company's existing HyperX family, the HyperX Fury is designed to offer performance without breaking the bank. The modules come with pre-loaded 'overclocked' profiles, the company claims, which mean peak performance when connected to a system without the need for manual overclocking - although that functionality will, naturally, still be available for those who want it. How this differs from any existing memory modules with AMD Memory Profile (AMP) or Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) support has not yet been explained by the company.

The Fury modules themselves boast a new heatspreader design, which will be available in black, blue, red and white finishes for coordination with existing system components; all modules will feature black PCBs. The range will also be extended with the addition of a matched Fury SSD family in the near future, with Kingston yet to provide a release date.

'We are excited to offer our newest addition to the HyperX DRAM family for entry-level enthusiasts who want to maximise their gaming and user experience,' crowed Lawrence Yang, business manager of Kingston's HyperX division, at the launch. 'This is a great product for someone looking to upgrade their gaming system at an affordable price.'

The HyperX Fury range is available in 4GB and 8GB singles along with 8GB and 16GB double-packs at speeds of 1,333MHz, 1,600MHz and 1,866MHz; those looking for 2,100MHz or higher speeds are pushed up to the more expensive members of the HyperX family. UK pricing is set at around £30 for the 4GB modules, £55 for the 8GB, £58 for the 8GB kit and £110 for the 16GB kit. Buyers can choose CAS Level 9 or 10 timings for most modules, with the faster modules affording a higher price.

In the last paragraph, wouldn't that be 1,333MHz instead of 1,33MHz

Now that *would* be entry-level! (Although I can remember when PC133 SDRAM was an upgrade...) Fixed, ta!
