Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced the availability of Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory. Designed to enhance high-performance gaming environments and push performance limits, the new modules deliver introductory speeds starting at 2666 MT/s, and allow users to radically increase bandwidth to 21 GB/s. Ballistix DDR4 memory also delivers up to 40 percent better power efficiency than standard DDR3 memory*
Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory is optimized for the latest Intel X99 platforms with support for XMP 2.0 profiles, and features a custom-designed black PCB and anodized aluminum heat spreaders for improved heat dissipation. Supported by the exclusive Ballistix Memory Overview Display (M.O.D.) utility, which provides the ability to read information from the module, including real-time temperature from the integrated thermal sensor, voltages and more, all to aid overclocking efforts.
"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."
"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."
Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory comes in 4GB and 8GB modules, as well as 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB kits, and is now available for purchase from Crucial.com and through select global partners.
