With DDR4 Memory now starting to mature since its release with the X99 chipset, we are starting to see the market get flooded with more options and variety, many of which now providing great performance with high frequencies and lower cost. With more and more kits becoming available, the competition is getting more fierce everyday.
Today we have the chance to take a look at the HyperX’s new budget friendly line up the Fury series DDR4 memory. At the launch of DDR4 memory, it primary features were offering lower voltage and higher native frequencies. DDR4 features a native speed of 2133MHz, which is really nothing to WOW over or about since we have seen these speeds with DDR3. However, the main updates are its newer JEDEC Culmination and Density, DDR4 memory components now provide better speeds and faster response while being more power efficient at the same time.
The HyperX Fury memory we are going to be looking at today not only offers fast speeds of 2666MHz out of the box, but also offers the efficiency of lower voltage; with that in mind… we can see some great potential with additional performance once overclocked. We will be comparing results from Kingston’s (HyperX) previous line up from its DDR3 series all the way up to HyperX Predator DDR4 series we previous tested.
But before we do that, let’s learn about who HyperX is.
