Crucial, Micron’s global consumer brand of computer memory and storage has announced a limited edition Crucial Ballistix MAX 5100 gaming DRAM. The company has announced the product in an attempt to expand the already successful and award-winning legacy of the Crucial Ballistix product portfolio. New improvements in the latest offering by Crucial include optimal gaming memory option, boasting the highest speeds available to date for purchase.
Crucial has set up word record for setting performances all because it is the only existing brand of gaming DRAM that incorporates custom tuning at the die level. In fact, these same gaming DRAM modules were recently used by a competitive overclocker to hit a blistering 6,666MT/s, the fastest ever for DDR4 modules. You can find the screenshots for the record-breaking frequency and valid CPU-Z at HWBOT.
Similar to the vision incorporated in all other Micron products and solutions for enterprise and personal computing, the Crucial gaming memory is purpose-built. It is the only gaming memory that is vertically integrated, meaning that all of it, every single part from start to the end has been designed and manufactured in house. No other competitor in the industry provides this type of approach. As a result, the new 5100MT/s modules deliver blazing fast speeds to hardcore gamers and maximized results to overclocking enthusiasts.
“We were the first to launch DDR4, the first to put LEDs on gaming DRAM, and now our latest Crucial Ballistix memory is giving gamers a sharper edge by enabling higher frame rates and better system performance,” said Teresa Kelley, vice president, and general manager of Micron’s Consumer Products Group. “This latest memory speed is another testament to the team’s focus and delivery of world-class, innovative high-performance gaming products.”
Initially, there will only be a limited number of the Crucial Ballistix Max 5100 produced. This will be at the time of launch and they will be available in 16GB kits for purchase at Crucial’s official website. You can also purchase it through select global channel partners. Gaming memory by Crucial has set up incredible standards for extreme performance by delivering reliability, faster speeds, and lower latencies when it matters most. These select Crucial Ballistix MAX 5100 modules are designed for extreme overclocking and engineered for compatibility only with the very latest AMD and Intel platforms.
Gamers and other customers looking to extract the best performance from their PCs can upgrade with other Crucial products like the Crucial P5 NVMe SSD and the Crucial X8 Portable SSD to supercharge their computers. All Crucial Ballistix memory is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
