Kingston is investing more and more into the blooming PC gaming industry, with the latest venture being a TLC NAND based RGB SSD. Although, the company’s SSDNow lineup has done pretty well, thanks to the competitive pricing and ample availability, they aren’t really aimed towards the gaming community. The new HyperX RBG SSD tries to rectify that.

Kingston HyperX RGB SSD

The new HyperX RGB SSD leverages 3D NAND and is available in capacities of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB. The prices range from 9,349 INR for the lowest capacity and 27,230 for the 960GB variant. The write speed is capped @ 480MB/s while the read speed is slightly higher at 550MB/s.

The SSDs are compatible with most RGB motherboards that support RGB lighting and multiple RGB devices. The FURY RGB SSD can be daisy chained to sync RGB effects with the rest of the internals. It is sold as a standalone RGB SSD or as an upgrade bundle kit that includes a USB 3.0 enclosure, 3.5” bracket and mounting screws, RGB cable, SATA data-cable, USB 3.1 Type A to mini-USB Cable and Hard Drive Cloning Software.
