Crucial Goes "Ballistix" with 8GB DDR3 Memory Modules

It doesn't matter if Bill Gates ever said it or not, what matters is we've long known that 640K of RAM isn't anywhere near enough. For some people, neither is 2GB or even 4GB. And if you're a power user or a master of content creation, you may need much, much more. Perhaps this is why Crucial decided to upgrade several of its Ballistix memory lines with 8GB modules.

The Micron-owned memory maker announced the immediate availability of 8GB DDR3 memory modules across the Crucial Ballistix Sport, Tactical, and Elite series, each of which leverages Micron's 4Gb (gigabit) DRAM technology.

"The new Crucial Ballistix 8GB modules enable users to take advantage of award-winning Micron innovations to maximize the installed memory for optimal performance on today’s most advanced systems," said Jeremy Mortenson , senior product manager, Crucial. "Featuring stylish new designs and an updated logo, Crucial now provides its customers eye-catching and reliable memory solutions for performance enthusiasts at every interest level."

Kits are available in low-latency DDR3-1600MHz and DDR3-1866MHz modules and can be installed in configurations up to 64GB, provided your system (and your wallet) supports that much RAM. Pricing and specs vary by model.
