With the seemingly unstoppable RGB train passing just about every stop in your PC, the SSD cannot be left out, and nor can HyperX, with the FURY RGB SSD. This isn’t something new to the market, by any means, but it’s something HyperX seem keen to present to the enthusiasts of RGB lighting.
Powering the Fury RGB is Toshiba’s 64-layer 3D TLC NAND paired with Marvell’s 88SS1074 controller for increased reliability and efficiency, so they claim. All of that is contained within a bulky metal enclosure, measuring 9.5mm instead of the typical 7mm we generally see from today’s SSDs.
The RGB lighting is provided by your motherboard and is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and ASRock Polychrome RGB. Different colours and effects can be employed and married to your motherboard to give your case that extra touch of bling.
HyperX, a Kingston company, offer the drive in three capacities, 240GB, 480GB (the model we’ll be looking at today) and 960GB. All three drives come with a 3-year warranty and are rated at 120TB, 240TB and 480TB Total Bytes Written.
HyperX on the FURY RGB:
Get the upgrade that you need to kick your system’s performance and style into high gear with the HyperX FURY RGB SSD. The drive features a smooth, stunning light bar to give your computer a dash of dazzling RGB lighting. It can also daisy-chain to other RGB devices to sync colours and effects1. Cutting-edge 3D NAND and a Marvell controller give the FURY RGB incredible speeds of 550 MB/s read and 480MB/s write2 while also making the drive more durable and more efficient. With a top case designed to accentuate its lighting, FURY RGB is the premier SSD for computer builders who don’t want to skimp on performance or looks.
