Kingston has announced the addition of a familiar face in the form of the FURY Renegade SSD with a block of metal now sitting on top of the drive.
At the time of the original release, the FURY Renegade SSD comes in pretty much the same as most M.2 drives out there – a flat piece of PCB hosting flash memory chips, the controller, and a thin piece of heat spreader among other components. Capable of delivering up to 7,300MBps / 7,000MBps reads and writes speed and up to 1 million IOPS, the PCIe 4.0 drive is basically one of the best in the market right now.
Now, the problem comes when there’s too much heat that can’t be dissipated quickly enough resulting in throttling and cases have happened in the context of installing it into PS5’s expandable storage whereby it runs too hot even in casual operation. That’s why Kingston has decided that it is time to release the high-performance drive with an integrated heatsink to solve that problem once and for all.
But you can still use it with your PC and can be especially effective if you’re running the most powerful CPU and GPU combo in your rig. Any amount of heat removal assistance is appreciated in such an environment.
The Kingston FURY Renegade SDD with Heatsink is available in 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities and can be purchased across the globe starting today but is subject to local availability.
