HyperX gives the Fury DDR4 memory line a face-lift and adds RGB lighting

HyperX announced the release of the new Fury DDR4 RGB and a fresh new design of the Fury DDR4 lineup of system memory kits. A division of Kingston Technology, HyperX is renown for its PC gaming peripherals and the key to that is its high-performance and cost-effective memory kits.

“The HyperX team is excited to expand our Fury DDR4 and Fury DDR4 RGB lineup for the next generation of PC enthusiasts who continually want the absolute best performance possible from their system,” Kristy Ernt, DRAM business manager at HyperX, said in a statement.

While the Fury DDR4 line isn’t new, in terms of design they’ve always been understated. HyperX refreshed the line with a new look and added an LED lighting strip to the Fury DDR4 RGB. This makes it look more like some of the best competitors kits in the market.

The new Fury DDR4 RGB features an LED strip on the top which, thanks HyperX Infrared Sync, allows for completely wireless sync of the lighting effects. The memory is compatible not only with HyperX’s own software, but also software from a range of motherboard vendors like Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light Sync. In practice, this means the RGB will work well in almost any modern build and play nicely with other parts.

Besides the new RGB lighting, the whole Fury DDR4 line also works with Intel and AMD platforms that feature plug-and-play. This essentially allows the memory kits to be overclocked automatically at the standard 1.2V DDR4 settings. Additionally, the Fury DDR4 has predefined Intel Extreme Performance (XMP) profiles that are designed to maximize the performance of the memory kits.

The Fury DDR4 runs up to 3466Mhz speeds which isn’t the fastest possible speed available but certainly more than sufficient for the most demanding gamer. The kits deliver this speed at low CL15-CL19 latencies and come in single, dual or quad-channel kits.

The HyperX Fury DDR4 and Fury DDR4 RGB module sizes start at 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB with kits available up to 64GB. The new memory kits are available immediately through HyperX retail and online outlets.

The company called Looking Glass recently shared on Twitter several demos of people interacting with its holographic AI companion, called Uncle Rabbit, which is able to communicate back-and-forth in real time with humans, while also completing tasks that people request.

This is how you can accidentally kill AMD’s best CPU for gaming
Someone holding the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in a red light.

It turns out that one of AMD's best gaming CPUs, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, can accidentally be killed if you try to overclock it, and it's all because there are no limitations as to how far you can push the processor.

Igor Wallossek of Igor's Lab found that the software used for overclocking and overvolting Ryzen CPUs currently doesn't impose any limits when you try to ramp up the voltage. And that's a recipe for turning a fun performance boost into an overclocking nightmare.

This ChatGPT alternative is free, open source, and available now
A ColossalChat poem about ChatGPT appears on a MacBook screen.

The first open-source AI chatbot in the vein of ChatGPT has arrived, and it's come at a particularly helpful time. ColossalChat is a powerful alternative that uses an RHLF pipeline similar to OpenAI's GPT-4 model that powers ChatGPT, and it's available for immediate use.

ChatGPT, of course, remains the premier AI chatbot and keeps plenty busy. But I just tried to log in now and found it was at capacity and, therefore, unavailable. This is a common problem with the service. ColossalChat, on the other hand, is wide open and ready to use for free.
