Kingston FURY Beast 32GB DDR5-5200 Memory Kit Review

It’s about time we enter a new era  in computing with DDR5 memory. A month ago, Intel launched their 12th generation of Core processors (Alder Lake), the first consumer processor generation that supports the new DDR5 RAM. At around the same time, Kingston also released their DDR5 memory kit to support these new processors, and luckily we had a chance to test these DDR5 memory kits on the Z690 chipset motherboard.

At this point, I have to say that the availability of DDR5 memory kits are very scarce, but Kingston Fury Beast is the easiest DDR5 to find at most popular online stores. It makes it even more interesting, is that we are able to test these kits due to its abundant availability, while most other brands are only presenting press releases of their memory kits … and they will more than likely change their specifications before they appear in stores, and when, no one knows for sure.

Let’s begin with a list of features and some technical information about the new memory series.

Kingston FURY Beast DDR5 Memory

Kingston FURY™ Beast DDR5 memory brings the latest cutting-edge technology for next-gen gaming platforms. Taking speed, capacity and reliability even further, DDR5 arrives with an arsenal of enhanced features, like on-die ECC (ODECC) for improved stability at extreme speeds, dual 32-bit subchannels for increased efficiency and an on-module power management integrated circuit (PMIC) to provide juice where it’s needed most.

Superior speed advancements with double the banks from 16 to 32 and double the burst length from 8 to 16 take DDR5 memory, your gaming experience and your overall system applications to the next level of performance.

Whether you’re pushing the limits in your gaming with the most extreme settings, live streaming at 4K+ or pushing large animations and 3D rendering, Kingston FURY Beast DDR5 memory is the level-up needed, while seamlessly bridging style and unleashing performance.

Additionally, it utilises Intel® XMP 3.0, a new overclock spec that includes two customisable profiles for speeds and timings.


Greater starting speed performance

With an aggressive starting speed at 4800MHz, DDR5 is 50% faster than DDR4.


Improved stability for overclocking

On-die ECC (ODECC) helps maintain data integrity to sustain the ultimate performance while you push the limits!


Increased efficiency

Boosted by double the banks and burst length and two independent 32-bit subchannels, DDR5’s exceptional handling of data shines with the latest games, programs, and demanding applications.


Intel® XMP 3.0-Ready and Certified
