Kingston FURY DDR5 Review


Right off the assembly line
Hi hi!

This is the review of the Kingston FURY DDR5 RAM modules shared with us by the Digit Team for the Kingston Contest.

We also got additional components to build a proper DDR5 PC. The components were -
  1. Processor: Intel Core i9-12900K CPU
  2. Mobo: MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk WIFI DDR5
  3. Storage: Kingston FURY Renegade 2TB NVMe SSD
  4. Graphics: MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ventus 2X OC
  5. Power Supply: MSI A750GF 80Plus Gold Modular Power Supply

My own PC is also 12th Gen Intel with the Core i5 12600K but I replaced it with the 12900K to run these tests on my DDR4 mobo.

I started with running games on it. Not many but I ran DDR4 memory on my old PC without XMP and also with XMP. On the DDR5 PC, I could only manage to run DDR5-4800 benchmarks and forgot about XMP. Here are the FPS I saw.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla778082
Far Cry 694108106

I also ran Cinebench latest R23 benchmark to compare the RAM performance.
DDR4-2133 - 26279
DDR4-3200 - 26358 (Good improvement)
DDR5-4800 - 26360 (Only 2 pts better)

I would say that I should have run the DDR5-5200 tests as well because between the two RAM modules, I saw only some performance improvement. I would say, without 12th Gen, the performance gap between the DDR5 and an older DDR4 system would be much much more. In gaming, there is not much difference.
