Meeting Ballistix Elite DDR4 Memory from Micron Technology

As part of Crucial brand, Micron Technology comes out with a new generation of RAM – the Ballistix Elite DDR4. It is developed in a pure black PCB with a powerful heatspreader and an integrated thermal sensor. Initially, the company releases planks of 4 GB and 8 GB, although in retail sale the products will be available in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB kits. Pricing is unknown so far.



Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory operates at 2666 MHz frequency and boasts 21 Gb/sec throughput index. Its power-efficient facilities are 40% better than those inherent in DDR3 models with analogous clock frequency. This makes gaming process a delight due to intense responsiveness, optimized latencies, and increased frame rates.


The modules support XMP 2.0 profiles as well as Ballistix Memory Overview Display utilities; the latter track the performance of each module, analyzing temperature, voltage and frequency showings in real time. Furthermore, Micron Technology makes its DDR4 compatible …

Fractal Design Define R5: Silent Chassis for Ambitious Systems

Fractal Design has recently added a new R5 model to its renowned Define series. The new-comer is targeting enthusiasts longing for high performance combined with silent operation.

Gigabyte is preparing an overclocked version of GeForce GTX 660 Ti

Despite the measures taken by Nvidia partners to maintain the confidentiality (up to 16th of August ) of marketing sketches and precise characteristics of the line graphics cards GeForce GTX 660 Ti, it is still becomes the property of IT-society long before the official announcement. The resources tell about a new video card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti, equipped with a cooler WindForce 2X.



New product will be released in two versions — with increased and recommended frequencies. Graphics adapters will have the same appearance, but the cost will vary depending on the characteristics. Video card without overclocking is functioning at 915 (980) / 6008 MHz, OC-option has clock speeds of 980 (1032) / 6008 MHz for core and 2 GB of memory GDDR5, respectively. In the arsenal of adapters there are as well video outputs DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI (gold plated) and DisplayPort, two slots SLI and graphics chip GK104-300-KD-A2 (1344 shader, 112 TMU, 24 ROP, 192-bit memory bus).
