Crucial Announces Ballistix DDR4 16GB Memory Modules

Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced Crucial Ballistix DDR4 16GB performance memory. Ideal for gamers and enthusiasts who deal with content creation, virtual machines, RAM drives, and memory-intensive applications, the new Ballistix modules leverage Micron's new 8Gb DDR4 component technology to offer up the highest density DDR4 memory to date.

Until now, only expensive server systems have been able to reach these memory densities, but with Ballistix DDR4 16GB modules, users can achieve greater densities on high-end desktop systems like the latest Intel X99 platforms. Available across Sport LT, Tactical, and Elite product lines, each module includes Intel XMP 2.0 profiles for easy setup and support.
"This density of memory module will start to become broadly available in the desktop space with our new 8Gb-based Ballistix DDR4 16GB modules," said Jeremy Mortenson, worldwide DRAM product marketing manager, Crucial. "We anticipate that our new modules and component densities will enable smaller form factors and the next generation of computers to have capacities that were traditionally limited to the server or high end desktop space."

Ballistix DDR4 16GB memory is expected to ship in late July. Available in 16GB modules or in kits up to 128GB, the modules come with a limited lifetime warranty.

As usual these idiots will overcharging for absolutely craptastic memories sold under the sticker of Ballistix. Warranty is a f***ing joke, it's been more than 2 months since I RMA'd my DDR3 Tactical tracers and haven't heard from them apart from an email confirming they received my RAMS.

I have had a lot of success with Crucial memory, but I agree that their RMA process is a joke.

All the ballistix kits I have owned have failed within 2-3 months of purchase. For me sending RAMs for RMA from India is a big headache, it involves paying bribes and collecting half a dozen documents just so that I can get exemption in customs duty as I am sending goods for repair.

That's terrible luck. I've heard nothing but good regarding Crucial products and haven't had any of my RAM kits fail. I find they're also the most flexible for overclocking but that's beside the point.

My experience has been exact opposite, all of these failed with default stock settings. My first DDR1 ballistix whenever was set to "Crucial" specs of timing and Voltage, it used to heat to the point that one of the modules actually burned out. Now I am stay away from this brand (like Logitech and Asus) like a plague and not sell it to any of my clients.

The fact that you guys have had to MRA them make it a better joke.
