Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB DDR4-2666 CL16 Memory Kit Review

Couple of months ago we had a chance to test Crucial 4x8GB DDR4-2133 CL15 memory kit which was performing good and overclocking even better. Today we wish to present the latest Crucial memory which is designed for most demanding users – Ballistix Elite 4x4GB DDR4-2666 CL16. Also this time Crucial decided to keep default DDR4 voltage of 1.2V what gives us hopes on good overclocking results.

Except higher default frequency there is also new and unique design. New black-gunmetal heatsinks look really high end and I think most users will love them.

I don’t want to make this introduction too long as I bet all are already waiting for test results and closer look at the Crucial Ballistix DDR4 memory. Stay with us to take a closer look at the highest series from the Crucial DDR4 memory kits – Ballistix Elite. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

Outplay. Outmatch. Outlast. The future of performance memory is here.

To max out performance in the final days of DDR3 technology, you needed the right processor, the right motherboard, a PhD in overclocking, and the willingness to surrender everything in your wallet. Not anymore.

Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory cracks the DDR3 performance limit and debuts at 2666 MT/s – and that’s just getting started. Feed your 8-cores and draw upon some of the fastest speeds and bandwidths available.

Outplay. Open fire at 2666 MT/s

While your opponents fight petty using DDR3-1600 MT/s, obliterate them with DDR4-2666 MT/s speeds that get even faster as the technology matures. Alongside these speed gains, draw on the improved responsiveness, increased frame rates, and optimized latencies of Ballistix Elite DDR4 technology and revel in an unreal gaming experience.

Outmatch. Subjugate the opposition with 21.3 GB/s bandwidth

Flood your memory bandwidth and process up to 21.3 gigabytes per second – a feat that’s nearly impossible to achieve with DDR3 memory. Leveraging the faster burst access speeds that are only possible on DDR4 architecture, Ballistix Elite DDR4 maximizes performance with four channel memory.

Outwork. Push your memory to the edge – using less power

Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory leverages the latest advancements in efficiency technology and is engineered to run at lower voltages for inherent energy gains. Armed with a thermal sensor and our high-end Ballistix M.O.D. utility for real-time temperature monitoring, Ballistix Elite DDR4 wrings up to 40% more power efficiency out of your memory.

Outfit. Brandish your memory in style
