Crucial, a leading supplier of memory and storage upgrades, this week introduced two new product lineups designed for users who need stylish performance memory upgrades, but do not require extreme clock-speeds. The new Ballistix Sport XT modules address desktops, whereas the Ballistix Sport SO-DIMMs are designed for laptops as well as ultra-small form-factor desktops.
“The Crucial Ballistix Sport series is designed to provide mainstream users and performance enthusiasts with a reliable, no-hassle gaming experience. The new Sport XT memory offers an attractive new heat spreader styling for gamers who are looking for enhanced thermal performance, and a new color that complements popular motherboards,” said Jeremy Mortenson, senior product manager at Crucial.
Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DIMMs offers DDR3 speeds up to 1866MHz and is available in 4GB and 8GB modules and up to 32GB quad channel kits (8GB*4). The modules feature XMP profiles for easy BIOS configuration in supported systems. The modules are equipped with aggressively-styled and taller heat spreader design that improves thermal performance.
Ballistix Sport SO-DIMMs can reduce DRAM power consumption in systems by up to 10% percent, enabling longer battery life, thanks to usage of 1.35V voltage. Offered in 4GB and 8GB densities and with up to 1866MHz clock-rate, Crucial Ballistix Sport SO-DIMMs will be available in early July.
“Gamers want to arm their system with a performance edge, and Crucial Ballistix Sport SO-DIMMs represent a new weapon of choice for laptops, mini ITX motherboards, and all-in-one systems. Ballistix Sport SODIMMs offer faster speeds and lower latencies than standard SO-DIMM modules and enable the performance users come to expect from Crucial Ballistix memory,” said Mr. Mortenson.
