HyperX expands their Fury lineup of DDR4 memory

HyperX has now expanded their Fury lineup of DDR4 memory, offering frequencies of up to 2666MHz, capacities of up to 16GB per DIMM and confirmed Ryzen compatibility.



Read more on HyperX's expanded lineup of Fury series DDR4 memory.

Must be some good dimms, 1.2v is low for ddr4

2666Mhz isn't very high though when you compare it to what's available today and how it benefits so many applications.

It is when it is running less voltage

What benefit do you see from running the RAM at a lower voltage as long as you're still within recommended tolerances?

lower temps and power consumption? That should be obvious

I didn't think I'd have to say except for the obvious tower temperatures and power consumption. I said "as long as you're still within recommended tolerances". Seeing as RAM does not output very much heat comparatively, I'd rather have higher voltages and higher speed memory as long as it's within tolerances.

You asked a question. I answered. Why should I assume you know?
But what's your point? That isn't the point of this ram... Don't think it outputs much heat? After playing games all day or rendering or really anything that uses a lot, touch it. Tell me if it burns a little, I've even touched the die itself, hot as hell. Either way, the point of this is obviously not for speed.
They have two clear steps from this ram that is actually very smart.
They are the first afaik to bring low voltage DDR4. This means they can bring it to mobile and probably still be running faster memory than most laptops even with 2666. Lower temps and power consumption? What was pretty darn good and is now exceptionally great.
Secondly, they are binning these chips. If they can continue they could probably get to 3000mhz rather soon. DDR4 overtime will improve and voltages will get lower. It happened with DDR3 and most kits ended up running the LV tag towards the end of life, so why not get ahead of the curve?? And for say Ryzen where most chips seem to not currently get over 3000, 2666 isn't going to make much of a difference.
In addition to the binning, you have more headroom for OC'ing. Starting at a lesser voltage you can still stay within "recommended tolerances" and more than likely get pretty far for those users who have say bad CPU memory controllers and need the voltage bump.

I'd like to think that I have proven I know that higher voltages cause higher temperatures and power consumption and maybe there was something I was missing that isn't common knowledge, but I guess I should have been more specific.

I said "RAM does not output very much heat comparatively", emphasis on comparatively. A CPU or GPU with a heatsink as impotent as RAM heat spreaders would not last twenty seconds under load. RAM can indeed be hot to the touch, but that should speak for itself.

I hope I wasn't saying that this RAM has no place in the market. When I said I'd rather see higher voltages if it meant higher frequencies, I was referring to myself and my personal usage. I run Fury DDR3 memory and I love the aesthetics and value. I was waiting for Kingston to release this memory in DDR4 (especially in white), but the speeds are not what I am looking for.
