Memory masters Kingston are one of the brands that’s quietly been there for PC gamers over the decades. They may not be right up in our faces with GPUs and monitors, nor at our fingertips via keyboards and mice, but many of the best Kingston products hum beneath the surface of the most powerful gaming machines, providing swift storage in the form of SSDs and that all-important memory middle man of your PC, RAM.
RAM is vital to the smooth running of your PC and games - the more processes you have running, the more RAM you should have, and the faster it should be. Beyond the raw amount of RAM in gigabytes, you also want your RAM to be have high clock speeds (calculated in MHz) with low latency (calculated in CL timings).
The latest Kingston FURY range of DDR4 RAM strikes that balance between speed, latency and price, channelling the company’s decades of experience into these beautifully designed wafers of memory.
Here are the latest products in this exciting new range. Note that all the below are backed by Kingston’s trusty lifetime warranty, and designed to get the most out of Intel and AMD-based systems and CPUs.

Smoothly stream your playthroughs of the latest triple-A games without a hitch thanks to the Beast - a 3733MHz powerhouse designed for desktop PCs. The Beast takes advantage of both Intel’s XMP and AMD Ryzen-based overclocking solutions, which are the safest and speediest way to crank up those clock speeds to the next level.
