Kingston FURY Renegade DDR5-6000 Review
New DDR5 memory options expand and our friends at Kingston have put their enthusiast-focused product in our hands, the Kingston FURY Renegade DDR5 promises the highest performance for enthusiasts with a direct focus for a PC with AMD or Intel hardware..
The diversity is quite good and the FURY Renegade comes in several versions. The ones reviewed in this case have a speed of 6,000Mhz with a CL32 latency and, as I had mentioned, compatibility with any component of both brands. In our case we use the XMP 3.0 profile for all the tests that we will see below.
This XMP 3.0 profile offers a new way to overclock ram memory specifications to greatly optimize times and decrease latency giving us the best possible performance. At the same time, this OC makes us use the voltage in a more profitable way and all this can be done from our BIOS.
Before we continue, let’s get to know the product specifications a bit. To read the full specifications visit this link:
- Single Capacities: 16GB, 32GB Kits of 2
- Frequencies: 6000MT/s, 6400MT/s
- Latencies: CL32
- Voltage: 1.35V, 1.4V
- Operating temperature: 0 °C to 85 °C
- Dimensions: 133.35mm x 39.2mm x 7.65mm
Lest we get confused, MT/s and MHz are pretty much the same. MT/s is Metatransfer per second which is a separate bandwidth term generally used for signal speed on I/O buses, making it the perfect unit for measuring the “speed” of the memory.
While MHz (Megahertz) comes as the term used when a frequency of 1600 MHz acts as a module with a frequency of 3200 (1600*2) MHz, it became quite widely used as it still indicated its effective speed.
Basically the new generation of ram memories are 50% faster in terms of data handling than the previous one. DDR5 is undoubtedly the new thing and it can really be noticed when playing games or doing any project on our PC. For this, each of the tests carried out is focused on reading, writing, latency and copying of the same.
Inside the box is obviously the ram, a 2x16Gb kit was sent for review together with a small quick start guide and an adhesive sticker. The revised version in this case is the white ones that add a great aesthetic to any PC with light tones. This is not the RGB version so whoever wants to choose should keep in mind that the focus of this new desEsports Extrasis on temperatures.
The white color aesthetic on this ram is extremely beautiful as it is mixed with a silver color that makes them look their best. As can be seen in the specifications mentioned above, the size is average, which really means that we can install them on any PC without feeling that fear that it will collide with some component. The size is ideal as some can be a bit voluptuous, messing up a bit the installation of components to cool the CPU.
The PC used for testing is as follows:
The first phase is to know all the details of the ram memory that CPU-Z offers us:
Knowing this we go to the most important part and it is temperature management. According to the specifications we have a range from 0 to 85 degrees celsius which is quite hot for a ram but it is good to know what the limit is that although we do not monitor this as closely as the CPU temperature it is always good to know what the temperature is correct to operate.
As we can see, the temperature range is quite manageable, taking into account that the first dimm is right next to the CPU and we could say that those almost 2 degrees difference between them is due to this. During all the tests carried out, the temperature was maintained at the same level shown in the image above.
As for the voltage, this also influences when overclocking the ram, the trick of the XMP 3.0 is to maintain the same voltage, offering us the fastest speed that it can give. As you can see below, the 1.35v is maintained while we have the ram at its maximum use:
Under this cover with very good aesthetics is a protection against temperatures that helps prevent it from heating up the contact of it so as not to affect the performance itself. Although when I touched them I could feel some temperature in the white part, it is completely clear that this protection does help 100% with one of the main problems of PCs.
Moving on to the test with the AIDA64 program, we have some very interesting results:
The first result that it gives us is an average between each of the readings that this RAM kit has. On the one hand you can see the type of memory and the latency it has, but on the other hand you can see how fast they can read, write and copy information with excellent latency. In the next images we will see the range compared to other brands already made in this same benchmark.
First of all we go with the reading range, if we look at the combination with this i9-13900K at 5.5 GHz it places this ram with an excellent score making it one of the most powerful combinations.
All these results are converted into the following series of graphs that we are going to see below, comparing it with the T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 with a speed of 6,400Mhz.
In this case it is obvious how the Delta RGB outperforms the Kingston Fury Renegade but not by much, despite having 400Mhz less. It’s not that huge of a difference.
Same result when writing in MB/s, not as tangible a difference but makes the point that 6000Mhz doesn’t make any difference (plus it’s a cheaper option).
In this case the difference is obviously the smallest of all. A score of around 3,000 difference is impressive.
As we have seen in all these tests, it is a reality that the FURY Renegade at 6000 Mhz are an interesting competitor against other DDR5 with higher speeds. Its price competes in the same way with the others and although it does not have RGB, the desEsports Extrasand white color make it stand out on any PC.
One of the biggest advantages that makes this ram kit the best option is the low CAS latency which is 32, making it a good option for those who do not want to lose so much but at the same time win. With excellent performance, they are the most recommended for those enthusiasts who want to get the most out of it and are really interested in overclocking it (others of us don’t like it very much).
With truly impressive aesthetics, Kingston FURY Renegade DDR5 memory gets the job done almost as well as more expensive, higher-powered ones. Making this product one of the most valuable in terms of performance thanks to its very low latency. The tests carried out confirm this and, apart from any other characteristics that many believe necessary, they are really perfect.
The lack of RGB takes away from its appeal a bit or at least for some. Intel XMP 3.0 profiles make us use them calmly knowing that we are using them correctly, without any errors or problems. The same will happen if we use it on a computer with AMD since it is compatible with both in the same way.
Of the new generation RAM memories that I would recommend the most in terms of performance and help for the pocket are the FURY Renegade, although others may offer us better performance, we have the main variant, which was the price. This review was made with a copy provided by Kingston.
