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.
So far we have taken a look at two different DDR4 kits from Crucial. Up first we had their JEDEC kit, which ran at the DDR4 default speed of 2133 MHz. The next kit we got our hands on was the Ballistix Sport kit that had some nice heatspreaders and ran at 2400 MHz. Now we are ready for Crucial’s top of the line DDR4 kit, which is the Ballistix Elite. The new Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory features a completely redesigned heatspreader from the DDR3 version and speeds that start at 2666 MHz. Today we are going to be taking a look at the BLE4K4G4D26AFEA kit. This kit runs at speeds of 2666 MHz with timings of 16-17-17-36 at 1.2V. Being that this is Crucial’s most high-end kit we expect it to perform pretty well. Let’s see what they can do!
Crucial’s line of Ballistix memory made for enthusiasts has gone through many different revisions over the years. Now they are running with 3 different types of modules, Ballistix Sport, Ballistix Tactical and Ballistix Elite. Today we are taking a look at one of their Elite kits. These kits are designed for extreme enthusiasts, demanding gamers, and uber-power users. The kit we are checking out today is a quad channel 16GB kit with timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.5v. This kit also has some of the largest heatspreaders we have seen in a while! Read on as we test this kit out!
