DDR5 Explained

DDR5 is the latest generation of memory modules on consumer PCs, built to work with Intel’s 12th-gen processors and Z690-chipset motherboards.

Compared to its predecessor DDR4 SDRAM, DDR5 is built on a new architecture and brings key improvements in terms of memory bandwidth, capacity, and power consumption compared with the last generation DDR4.

In this case, Kingston Fury Beast can operate on three frequency thresholds, based on XMP 3.0 profiles: 4,800 MT/s at 1.1V, 5,600 MT/s at 1.25V and 6,000 MT/s at 1.35V.

Features

  • Enhanced RGB lighting with new heat spreader design
  • Patented Kingston FURY Infrared Sync Technology
  • Intel XMP 3.0-Ready and Certified
  • Qualified by the world’s leading motherboard manufacturers
  • Improved stability for overclocking
  • Plug N Play at 4800MT/s

The RAM supports motherboard manufacturers such as ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, and ASROCK. There is also a dedicated software ‘Kingston FURY CTRL’ that allows you customize the lighting effects of Kingston FURY RGB products. In addition to a library of preset patterns and effects, users can personalize the colors and speeds of the lighting schemes to match their own unique gaming aesthetic. Kingston FURY CTRL also supports legacy HyperX RGB-enabled memory products.
