Crucial debuts Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory

The famous memory maker Crucial has unveiled the new Ballistix Elite line of DDR4 memory modules. The new memory line targets hardware enthusiasts, gamers and overclockers and offers a starting speed of 2667 MHz.

Ballistix Elite DDR4 introduces a striking new look for us while reducing the memory bottleneck further by delivering faster speeds and bandwidths, improved responsiveness, and enabling increased frame rates,” said Jeremy Mortenson, product marketing manager, Crucial. “Couple all those benefits with the latest X99-based platforms from Intel, and you get one unreal gaming experience.”

The high clock speed of Crucial Ballistix Elite means that the new memory can push up to 21 GB/sec of data. The memory is optimized for the latest Intel X99 Express chipset and the Haswell-E platform and offers support for XMP 2.0, a custom-designed black PCB and anodized aluminum heat spreaders for improved heat dissipation. Furthermore the memory comes with Crucial’s Ballistix Memory Overview Display (M.O.D.) utility that allows users to read information from a memory module including real-time temperature, voltages and more.

“Since its first public demonstration of the technology over two years ago, Crucial has been at the forefront of DDR4 memory technology,” said Geof Findley, director of PMO Memory Enabling and Apps Engineering at Intel. “Crucial has been instrumental in enabling channel partners with DDR4 for new Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processor-based server platforms and Core i7 Extreme Edition-based desktop platforms. These customers will welcome the additional performance provided by next-generation DDR4 memory.”

The new Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory is available as 4 GB or 8 GB modules and in kits with capacities of 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB. There is no information on how much this memory costs.
