Crucial to Unveil New Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 White Modules at Gamescom
Crucial, a division of Micron, has decided to reveal its new Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 memory this August at Gamescom trade-show in Cologne, Germany. Featuring a military white digital camo, the new DRAM memory is designed for modders who prefer building a system with more exotic-looking components.
According to TechPowerUp, the modules will feature 4GB or 8GB capacities, allowing kits of up to 32GB of memory at first. But Crucial promises that it will grow the memory capacity and starting in September 2015, you’ll be able to get your hands on modules with 16GB densities and kits up to 64GB.
Further, the new Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 will include XMP 2.0 profiles that will help achieve DDR4 speeds of 2400 MT/s on the installed platforms.
At 2400MHz clock rate, the new memory modules however do not impress. Even when overclocked, they stand no chance in competing against the latest high-end modules from G.SKILL or Corsair.
Still, their militarized aspect can compensate the lack of extreme performance to some extent, and attract modders with aesthetic taste.
Pairing the new DRAM memory, which features unique white PCB and white radiator, with the latest Z170A mainboard from MSI, you’ll be able to build a PC with the inside all in white.
Pricing of the new Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 is unknown at the moment, but considering its limited overclocking capability, it’s not going to be too expensive.
