Review : Kingston Fury Impact sodimm DDR5 64GB 5600 MT/s CL40




After compatibility problems with the MSI Titan GT77 HX 13VI, we’re finally able to test this Fury impact 5600 kit. Unfortunately, it’s still impossible to run it at 5600 Mt/s. We have to make do with 5200 MT/s CL38 with the Alienware M18 R1, so we don’t have the full potential of this kit, but the gain is there. By going from 4800 MT/s to 5200 Mt/s with tighter timings, performance increases. This gain is particularly noticeable in 1080p, making it a good choice for M16 R1 and M18 R1 equipped with 1080p 480 Hz displays.

In itself, for $223, this Kingston kit will be a great choice coupled with a laptop purchased in 2×8 Gb configuration. For here, the $223 often corresponds to the price difference between 16 Gb and 32 Gb on Alienware’s basic 4800 Mt/s configuration.
