The selection of DDR4 modules is growing by the day. In fact, it almost feels like the old days -- you know, back when memory makers would launch new kits at a near non-stop pace. In continuing with the recent trend, Crucial today announced the availability of Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 memory and Crucial DDR4 desktop memory, both designed for Intel's X99 chipset.
If the PC market is insistent on moving towards smaller form factors and mobile devices, then kudos to Crucial for following along. The memory maker announced new Ballistix Sport SODIMMs designed to boost performance of gaming laptops, all-in-one systems, and mini ITX setups that require the smaller size memory modules. The new memory kits feature low latencies and are optimized for Haswell, Crucial says.
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.
