Kingston unveils FURY Beast DDR5 RAM

When you are a computer-builder, there are peaks and valleys when it comes to excitement about PC components. What do I mean by this? Well, sometimes you are building machines with cutting edge parts as an early adopter, while other times you are using ho-hum components that have been around a while. For instance, we have been using DDR4 memory for about seven years now... yawn!

Thankfully, the age of DDR5 is finally here. After dealing with DDR4 for so many years now, we will soon see PCs with DDR5 memory inside. One of the companies leading this industry shift is Kingston, and today that company unveils its FURY Beast DDR5 RAM. This memory is designed for use in computers powered by Intel's cutting-edge 12th generation Core processors and Z690 chipset. They should be easy to configure or overclock thanks to Intel XMP 3.0 support.
