Ballistix Launches Sport AT Gaming RAM
Sport AT for TUF Gaming
I may be an RGB-oholic, but I appreciate companies showing love to those who aren’t. Ballistix added the Sport AT model to their lineup. While it takes some rugged design notes from the Tactical Tracer RGB series, it forgoes the fancy lighting for a more mature design. (I know, I admit to my immaturity!) In particular the yellow highlights on the heat spreaders match particularly well with the Asus TUF branding of motherboards.
The company explains on their website how it’s “the only major gaming brand that’s built and tested from start to finish as part of a major memory
manufacturer.” This is supposed to give a higher level of performance and considering my recent review of the Tactical Tracer RGB, I’m inclined to believe it. Ballistix had some impressive overclocking potential. I would love to see if it happens again, or if I got a lucky kit. The performance numbers were great as well. Currently, the Sport AT comes in 2666MHz or 3000MHz. I can say both speeds are great for gaming though.
Asus on the TUF Gaming Alliance
What’s interesting is that the TUF partnership seems to have just as strong of an interest from Asus as it does from Ballistix. Sharon Pan, Division Director of the Asus Motherboard Channel PM Department said,
“Our TUF Gaming Alliance relationship with Ballistix, the memory brand of choice for so many gamers, offers customers and partners an exciting new product for PC builds. On the heels of all the positive feedback at Computex 2018, we’re looking forward to a successful collaboration with Ballistix as we continue to create products that excel in both performance and aesthetics.”
