Compared to standard Crucial DDR4 memory, that’s exactly what Ballistix Sport is engineered to do. Get faster speeds and run demanding applications with ease. Multitask at will with increased bandwidth. And strike first with better latencies and reduced load times.

 

Install with ease.

Getting more out of your system should be easy — and that’s exactly how we engineered Ballistix Sport memory. Using cutting-edge technology, intuitive module design, Intel® XMP 2.0 profiles and more, we designed Ballistix Sport with the sole intent of creating affordable, easy-to-use performance memory. Installation is a cinch: just plug-and-play, and get ready to win with little to no BIOS configuration.

 

Go covert.

With a stealth digital camo design and integrated heat spreader, Ballistix Sport LT is designed to be your memory lieutenant. Keep your system cool and collected while mowing down the opposition — whether that’s a challenging spreadsheet or an opponent you’ve just reduced to a bloody pulp.

 

Micron® quality—a higher level of reliability.

As a brand of Micron, one of the largest memory manufacturers in the world, Ballistix memory is built to last and delivers a higher level of performance than standard memory. For more than 35 years, we’ve engineered old-school DDR memory all the way to Ballistix Sport DDR4, which empowers you to seize an affordable performance edge. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty and rigorously tested to some of the most demanding standards in the industry, Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 memory has been thoroughly proven and is ready to make an immediate impact in your system.

 

Here is a screenshot of the settings detected by the latest version of CPU-Z which is 1.77. Interestingly enough it seems that CPU-Z is not reading the XMP profile correctly with regards to the programmed timings.

Test Setup

test_setup

At the present time, I am still working my ASRock motherboard to test this memory kit at the rated speeds and timings. This is a limitation of the motherboard/chipset and not of the memory kit’s fault. I will update the results accordingly when the issue is solved. However, for now I will test the memory kit at 2133 speeds and 5-5-5-35 timings that the motherboard will allow by default. Now that we have the specifications and testing parameters, let us move on to the performance results.
