Today we have the opportunity to test something a little different in the modern DDR4 memory market. For high-end computer builders and enthusaiasts, Samsung B-Die has remained the undisputed champion in recent years. Although other options have always been available, when it comes to overclocking and performance, there is simply no competition. Today, we are testing the Crucial Ballistix Elite, which is running a new breed of Micron memory IC’s. With very high XMP ratings, and moderately tight timings, it promises to be a contender in this space. Please read along to find out more.
New memory kits from Crucial rarely have premieres but they are always something different than we are used to seeing from other brands. Lately more computer enthusiasts are looking for fast, high density, and low profile memory. Why not to combine all these features in one memory kit that will also work at low voltage ? Crucial Ballistix LP is probably the only series on the market that includes all above features in one product. In this review I will focus on the Ballistix Tactical LP 2x8GB DDR3-1600 Kit.
