Product on Review: Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4
Street Price: 32GB – 3000MHz – C16 - £447.59 / $523.99
Ballistix, a Micron company, have stepped into the RGB fray, strapping 16 LEDs within 8 different lighting zones to the top of each DRAM module.
These new RGB DRAM sticks are available in 8GB and 16GB capacities and 2666MHz and 3000MHz frequencies. CAS timings are 16-18-18-38 @ 1.35v. All modules are available individually, in matched pairs or in 4-piece kits for ultimate capacity.
Today we look at the 32GB 3000MHz kit, in the form of 4x 8GB modules, priced at around £450 in the UK. These modules are fully customisable with the DDR4 Ballistix Mod Utility, giving the user full control over all 64 of the LEDs. Not only that, there’s also the ability to 3D print your own light bar which will slide into the place of the existing, supplied piece.
3000MHz is widely regarded as the “sweet spot” between price and performance in today’s DDR4 memory market, offering excellent data transfer speeds while keeping costs relatively low.
Let’s strap the 32GB of Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB to our test bench and see how they perform.
