It’s been a while since we had an SSD in our labs. It’s now done since we are back with the first “gamer SSD” from the American giant Kingston: the Kingston FURY Renegade.
Yes, as a reminder, last March, HP bought the peripherals division of HyperX, then owned by Kingston and which represented the range of gamer products of the brand. However, Kingston has kept its DRAM, flash memory and SSD division, and the American manufacturer has found a new name for its gaming range: Kingston FURY.
The Kingston Fury Renegade is an M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 SSD that uses the latest NVMe 1.4 protocol and is available in 512GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities .Its specifications indicate read and write performance of up to 7.3 GB/s with up to 1 million read and write IOPS. We note that at the end of October 2021, Kingston launched the Kingston KC3000, with specifications close to the Fury Renegade on paper.
But while on the market, brands like Samsung, Seagate, Western Digital or Sabrant have been offering us NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSDs for a year now, what makes the Fury Renegade different from them? We will try to answer this question after the presentation and the test of the product
