Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB DDR4 2666MHz (15 17 17) Dual Channel Review (HX426C15FBK2/16)


AIDA64 Extreme is an industry-leading system information tool, loved by PC enthusiasts around the world, which not only provides extremely detailed information about both hardware and installed software, but also helps users diagnose issues and offers benchmarks to measure the performance of the computer.

AIDA64 Extreme has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real-time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring either the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Please be aware that Ram (and other) reviews aren’t a win or lose proposition. Each kit normally has a different speed and timings so making direct comparison to faster or slower kits (IE: 2400 to a 2666MHz) kit is just to apples and oranges for us, each kit is reviewed and evaluated based on it’s expected operational speed within it’s given timings and speed.




We currently have two kits of DDR4 Dual Channel in the lab with several more on the way and our Kingston HyperX Fury came in at 38394MB/s which is considerable bandwidth considering its dual channel.


Over the years we’ve noticed that generally the faster a kit is the lower the latency and that holds true here with the Kingston kit coming in at 50.1.


The Read Benchmark in AIDA64 shows the Fury 2666MHz kit turning a 39256MB/s which is behind what we have come to expect from Quad Channel kits but channels are a little but like shotgun barrels. If you have 4 barrels you can put a higher volume of pellets in the air at once. Reduce the number of barrels then you reduce the number of pellets in the air. Ram is the same if you have 4 channels flooding data you have more throughput, fewer channels less throughput.


The Write benchmark sees the Kingston kit at 40889MB/s which is about where it should be given it’s speed and timings.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.

  1. Is it so hard to post a screenshot with SPD information on the modules?
