Crucial announced the availability of their new Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory modules. The new modules come as 4GB and 8GB versions and as single, dual or four packs.
The new modules deliver introductory speeds starting at 2666 MT/s, and allow users to radically increase bandwidth to 21 GB/s while decreasing the power consumption by up to 40 percent when compared to DDR3 memory. Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory is optimized for the latest Intel X99 platforms with support XMP 2.0 profiles and features a custom-designed black PCB and anodized aluminum heat spreaders for that extra touch.
“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.
A really cool feature is the exclusive Ballistix Memory Overview Display (M.O.D.) utility which provides the ability to read information from the module. This includes real-time temperature from the integrated thermal sensor, voltages and more, and all to aid those overclocking efforts.
The new modules are available for purchase from Crucial’s website and global partners where the prices start at $94.99 for a 4GB module. Like all Crucial memory, these modules are also backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
