The HyperX Fury is more a gaming RAM. Well, you might be thinking what’s difference between a gaming RAM and an ordinary RAM. Gaming RAM offers smooth performance for your daily application usage and doesn’t affect the system performance. So, if you think that a regular RAM offering a speed of 1333MHz or 1600MHz is same as the one offered by a gaming RAM, then you are slightly mistaken as gaming RAM are completely different in terms of performance and thanks to Kingston, the HyperX Fury falls in the range of gaming RAM.
