    Here are the first pictures of a Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory module up close. Launched earlier this week, the Ballistix Elite DDR4 will be Crucial's first enthusiast module to address the emerging market created by Intel's Haswell-E HEDT platform. It will come in various speeds upwards of 2133 MHz (DDR), and densities of 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB, and will be available as single-module, dual-channel, and quad-channel kits. The underlying DRAM chips are homebrew, from Micron's mega DRAM/NAND-flash plant in Boise, Idaho, US. The chips are cooled by a simple and effective aluminium heat-spreader.

    Cool bananas but I'd like to see how much they want for DDR4, it shouldn't really cost anymore than DD3 but I have feeling early adopters will get raped.....and that means me :(

    someone could probably do better, but yes the design does make it look meeter and meaner without raising the price oodles i hope

    Always liked Crucial memory, mainly because they don't put massively tall and useless heatspreaders on that get in the way without actually doing anything.

    Looks like it was cut by hand by someone with parkinsons, and then sanded down to smooth it off :laugh:

    It's a DDR4 standard though. All DDR4 modules have a larger pin length in the mid section. Check every other DDR4 picture.

    from what I understand that is how all the new DDR 4 Ram is like. If you look at the other press release pictures Of the Corsair Dominator Platinum they look the same.
