Crucial debuts regular and Ballistix Sport DDR4 memory

The Crucial Ballistix memory has been with us for many years, coming in various forms and capacities. Starting now, fans of the brand can purchase Ballistix DDR4 memory modules too as well as regular Crucial DDR4 memory.

The new regular Crucial DDR4 memory runs at 2133 MHz, while the Ballistix modules start at 2400 MHz but both memory lines will later include modules that run at higher speeds when the DDR4 memory technology matures. Naturally the new memory is optimized for the Intel X99 Express chipset and offers higher bandwidth than existing DDR3 memory, while operating at a lower voltage that makes it 40 per cent more energy efficient. In addition to that the Ballistix Sport DDR4 memory is plug-and-play compatible and supports XMP 2.0 profiles for easy configuration; it also includes black PCBs and integrated heat spreaders.

“The wait for the next generation in computing is over,” said Jeremy Mortenson, product marketing manager, Crucial. “Combined with Crucial DDR4 memory, platforms based on Intel’s latest X99 chipset promise to deliver entirely new levels of computing power and immersive gaming experiences.”

The regular Crucial DDR4 memory delivers bandwidth of 17 GB/sec and is 30 per cent faster than the previous generation Crucial memory. Thanks to the DDR4 memory technology, the new Crucial DDR4 memory delivers improved energy efficiency by operating at 1.2V, compared to 1.5V for DDR3 memory.

The new Crucial memory is available in modules with capacities of up to 8 GB and in kits of up to 32 GB. Users also get a limited lifetime warranty.
