While Kingston focuses on its latest high-performance DDR5 memory modules, the company also recently released a newly designed FURY Renegade DDR4 memory for existing users. Kingston was kind enough to send us the new memory modules, and here are our thoughts about them.

Kingston decided to introduce a refresh of its Fury Renegade DDR4 memory line-up for PC gamers who still use older-generation platforms. Compared to the previous Renegade DDR4 memories that we reviewed earlier, the new versions of Renegade DDR4 memories share a similar design as their DDR5 counterparts.

The new memories feature a stylish two-tone heat spreader, where the left and right sides are black, and the middle portion is metallic gray color. There is also the reflective Kingston Fury logo in the middle of the gray area, along with Renegade insignia on the bottom left side, and a mention of DDR4 on the right side. The PCB is also black to match the aesthetics of gaming systems.

The new Fury Renegade DDR4 version that we received for review is the RGB model, and there is also the FURY branding logo atop the RGB module. Kingston mentions that the RGB module features 10 LEDs that create dynamic RGB lighting effects, along with the integration of Kingston’s patented FURY Infrared Sync tech for smooth RGB effects and patterns with the system.

We tested the new Kingston Renegade DDR4 RGB memory on a testbed that features the InWin Chopin Max case, the Gigabyte B550I AORUS PRO AX MITX motherboard, the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G APU, and a Kingston 1TB Renegade SSD with Windows 11 Pro installed and the latest AMD drivers.

The 32GB Renegade DDR4 RGB memory we received is the dual-channel 3600MHz C16 model. Before we ran the major benchmarks, we ran the AIDA64 Cache & Memory test to find out the latency and other performances. As you can see from the image below, the latency achieved is 67.1 ns, which is not bad for a 3600 MHz memory. The Infinity Fabric is also automatically set at 1800 MHz speeds.

We ran benchmarks such as PC Mark 10 Extended, the 3DMark FireStrike/ TimeSpy, and the CPU-intensive Cinebench 2024 benchmarks. The tests were done at default CPU speeds, and memory profiles at 3600 MHz. Take a look at the scores below.

Verdict

We are impressed with the new and improved Kingston 32GB Fury Renegade DDR4 RGB memory, which comes with changes for both design and performance. The design of the new memory modules resembles that of Kingston’s Fury Renegade DDR5 line-up. The RGB lighting system features 10 LEDs for dynamic RGB lighting effects.

The heat spreader is more stylish than the previous generation, and it easily fits small cases like the InWin Chopin Max. Our review sample is based on the 32GB variant with two memory sticks, clocked at 3600 MHz DDR4 speeds. The memories are also compatible with both Intel and AMD platforms, and the performance is impressive.
