DDR4 has been around for a long time now. Making a new RAM kit that stands out can be a huge challenge. We already have addressable RGB lighting, tons of performance, and a plethora of options. If a company wants to be serious, it has a difficult, uphill climb when introducing a new memory kit. Ballistix is the gaming division of Micron, and they want to make a splash in the gaming DDR4 pool. The first thing they have going for them is a great, rugged design with the aluminum heat spreader. Looks are an easy thing to point out, but performance and lighting profiles are a matter we have to look into with more detail. Let’s dive in, right after a quick statement from Ballistix’ site.
As the only major gaming brand that’s built and tested from start to finish as part of a major memory manufacturer, Ballistix DRAM delivers a higher level of performance than regular PC gaming memory. For more than 35 years, we’ve engineered old-school DDR memory all the way to Ballistix DDR4 modules, which empower the future of gaming performance.
