Intel configuration test:
Of course, this kit will only be tested on an Intel platform since AMD does not yet have motherboards supporting DDR5.

- Memory : 32 GB Kingston Fury Renegade 6400 MT/s CL32
- Graphics Card: MSI GT 710
- Cooling system : Optimus Foundation + 480 mm EK radiator
- SSD : Western Digital SN850 NVMe SSD M.2
- Power supply : be quiet! Dark Power PRO 12 1500w
- Operating system : Windows 10 64 bits
Aida 64 :
It is a software capable of providing you with a lot of information about your configuration, but it has the particularity of having a memory benchmark. Aida 64 will calculate the speed of reading, writing, copying and the latency of your memory kit. It is very often used to compare memory kits between them. Aida 64 is an excellent tool if you want to compare the performance of your memory kit with those we have already had the opportunity to test.
The version used for the tests is 6.50.2812 beta and we have taken the performance of the previously tested kits.
The performance of this first test seems totally logical to us, with a second place obtained. The throughput is unquestionable with an average of 102218 MB/s. This is quite logical since this Kingston Fury Renegade kit combines high frequency and tight timings. As a reminder, our best score in DDR4 was 61325 MB/s with the Corsair Dominator Platinum at 4800 MT/s CL19. So, as usual on an Intel platform, you will have to focus on frequency and tight timings.
In writing, same observation with speeds that explode to reach 88461 MB/s. The Corsair Dominator Platinum 4800 MT/s CL19 in DDR4 obtained 67251 MB/s. Once again, we note a logical progression between the different frequencies. The score is better than the Corsair kit since the frequency is identical but the timings are more relaxed.
The findings are identical in copy with again a third place for our copy of the day. The Corsair Dominator Platinum 4800 MT/s CL19 in DDR4 had a copy speed of 57330 MB/s. As you can see, it is in reading and copying that DDR5 takes a very large lead over DDR4.
Finally, the latency. This is the value that all eyes are on because DDR5 is a bit behind. Our best DDR4 kit at this little game was the G.SKill Trident Z Royal Elite 4000 MT/S CL14 which obtained 41.4 ns. You’ll notice that the higher the DDR5 frequency, the narrower this gap becomes. Note that a DDR4 kit in 3200 MT/S CL16 has a latency of 50.3 ns. Here it will be 59.8 ns for our Fury Renegade 6400 MT/s CL32.
Geekbench 3.4.4 :
It is a benchmark available in several revisions, version 5 having just been released a few weeks ago. It allows you to obtain two scores: one in single and the other in multi. Using this benchmark, we will focus on the performance obtained on the ” Memory Multi-Core ” score which allows to differentiate the memory performance.
The version used for the tests is 3.4.4.
For the Geekbench 3 benchmark, despite the fact that in single core the frequency of our i9-12900K is 5.2 GHz, we notice a difference in score between the different memory kits. Once again, it’s a third place for this Fury Renegade, behind the 6600 MT/s kits. For information, in DDR4, our best kit was the G.SKill Trident Z Royal 4400 MT/S CL16 with 5617 points.
In multi core, the gap between our kits is less important. For your information, in DDR4, our best score was 48800. Of course, we have to take into account the DDR5 but also the performance brought by the Alder Lake CPU.
As soon as we isolate the memory score, real differences are visible between the kits. Our kit of the day gets a score of 11125 points! In DDR4, our best kit obtained only a score of 7748 points. Once again, the huge advantage of DDR5 in combination with the Alder Lake processor can be seen.
Geekbench 5.2.5 :
We decided to add this extra benchmark but why? The CPU benchmark uses new tests that more closely simulate the tasks that processors face in recent applications. Geekbench 5 also increases the memory used in the benchmark to better reflect the impact of this parameter in the CPU results.
For now, we will keep both since version 3 is still widely used.
While in Geekbench 3 we had a difference in single core, here in version 5 the performance is pretty much the same and it is our kit of the day that takes third place with a total of 2016 points.
Finally, the last score of our benchmark series with a total of 19453 points for our Kingston Fury Renegade 6400 MT/S CL32 kit. Still to give you a benchmark score in DDR4, our best score was 11179 points.
