Crucial Launches The Ballistix Sport LT Red DDR4 Memory
John Williamson / 4 years ago
Crucial is one of the most iconic names when it comes to DRAM and has a rich pedigree in this field. Throughout the years, they’ve forged a superb reputation for creating reliable products which very rarely experience any stability problems. Some time ago, the company launched an absolutely stunning range of DDR4 DIMMs under the Sport LT brand. These modules offered a stunning design and good 2400MHz speeds at a very competitive price point. Furthermore, the white edition proved to be extremely popular because memory kits sporting a white PCB are very uncommon. Crucial has just added another stunning design to this line-up based on a wine red colour and retro inspired decal. The modules will be available in densities of 4GB, 8GB and 16GB through dual and quad channel configurations.
The memory kit sports timings of 16-16-16 and only requires a mere 1.2v. While they’re not the fastest modules around, they are affordable and feature lower timings compared to premium options. Not only that, memory kits with speeds in excess of 3000MHz usually increase the voltage to 1.35v. This makes the Ballistix Sport LT a great option for the average consumer who is unlikely to notice benefits from extreme speed DDR4. Honestly, I believe these are the best-looking DIMMs Crucial have created and they even manage to contend with premium alternatives like the G.Skill TridentZ. We should be receiving a review sample relatively soon and I cannot wait to see how the red finish looks in person.
