Today, we are looking at their Ballistix Sport which is a range designed for both enthusiasts and mainstream users alike. They certainly look the part; low-slung with silver heatsinks atop of a black PCB. Ballistix are renowned for being good overclockers so we anticipate this aspect of the DDR4 modules with verve. So without further delay let's move on to the specifications of these modules.

ADATA Premier DDR4-2133 16GB Kit 4x 4GB DDR4 Review
     Tue, Jun 16 2015 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DDR4 memory modules are on many hardware shopping lists at the latest since the introduction of the Intel Haswell-E processors. DDR4 modules are not only interesting in the server area, but conquer also the upper mainstream area thanks to higher bandwidth and lower power consumption. But what are the DDR4 advantages compared to DDR3, which DDR4 memory you should buy and how high can one overclock DDR4 memory? We have today at OCinside.de a 16 GB DDR4 Quad Channel Kit tested, consisting of four ADATA Premier 4 GB DDR4-2133 CL15 memory modules.

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 32GB 1866MHz Quad Channel DDR3 Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Jun 11 2015 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the arrival of DDR4 it might be easy to forget that DDR3 is still the most popular memory choice for desktop PC platforms of mainstream and high-end varieties. Today we are taking a look at a quad channel memory kit from Crucial, a brand of Micron. We are looking at their Ballistix Sport XT kit butnot the dual channel one we’ve reviewed before, today we are testing out the quad channel variety. The best platform to support quad channel is Intel’s X79 Ivy Bridge-E so that’s exactly what we will be using for these tests. Of course being a 4-pack, or quad channel kit, this could also be used with any Intel LGA 115X or AMD AM2/3(+)/FM2(+) system that has 4 DIMM Slots. However, we want to see what Crucial’s 32GB kit can offer for a high-end user, particularly as we have similar DDR4 results for the X99 platform to compare to.

Toshiba TransMemory-EX II 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Tue, Jun 09 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What's the very first thing you look for when out to get a brand new USB flash drive? Judging by what our friends and families choose as expected most people put price and capacity above everything else while others care about design, build quality (materials used) and performance. For casual consumers performance may not be the most crucial aspect/feature of a USB flash drive (understandable really) but for it is for professionals and enthusiasts so for the past 2 years or so we've seen numerous USB 3.0 compatible models offering impressive read/write numbers. Toshiba was amongst the first manufacturers to release a USB 3.0 compatible drive many years ago but they never really focused in performance, at least not as much as other manufacturers did. Things have now changed however and so today with us we have their latest high-end model the TransMemory-EX II 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive.

Lexar JumpDrive M10 Secure USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Jun 08 2015 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The market is currently flooded with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 flash drives from different manufacturers; to make it more interesting, Lexar saw fit to introduce a new element, the always-on, easy-to-read capacity meter which shows us how much space we have left on the device but for added value we also have the ability to encrypt our files thanks to the EncryptStick Lite software, which is pre-loaded onto the device.

"At the time of writing, the Patriot Ignite 480GB SSD retails for about $190 and is readily available through the usual online channels. It's a great price considering the storage capacity and generous feature set of this new drive from Patriot."

42 USB 3.0 memory sticks, reviewed
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The fastest 32 GB memory stick also happens to be a Sandisk Cruzer Extreme model, with a score of 83 points. After conversion, we find that this stick costs a little over a euro per GB. This 32 GB model also receives an Excellent Choice award. That also goes to the Sandisk Extreme Pro 128GB, which turns out to be the fastest 128 GB stick. Although the performance score of the Corsair Voyager GTX 128GB is almost just as high, Corsair's offering strongly depends on its extremely high read speeds, whereas Sandisk's memory stick takes a more balanced approach.

Kingston FCR-HS4 USB 3.0 High-Speed Media Reader
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is hard to get too excited about a card reader, but the FCR-HS4 is definitely a nice one. While I typically prefer these kind of things to be compact for portability and so I can hide them away in a drawer, since I have been using this one I leave it right out on my desk. It sits nicely under my monitor and gives me quick access to all of my cards without having to go hunting. It looks good, stays put nicely, and as the testing showed it performs very well.

Crucial Announces Ballistix DDR4 16GB Performance Memory
     Sat, Jun 06 2015 | 2:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

New high-density 8Gb-based components enable DDR4 16GB modules for memory-intensive operations


Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced Crucial® Ballistix® DDR4 16GB performance memory. Ideal for gamers and enthusiasts who deal with content creation, virtual machines, RAM drives, and memory-intensive applications, the new Ballistix modules leverage Micron’s new 8Gb DDR4 component technology to offer up the highest density DDR4 memory to date.


Until now, only expensive server systems have been able to reach these memory densities, but with Ballistix DDR4 16GB modules, users can achieve greater densities on high-end desktop systems like the latest Intel® X99 platforms. Available across Sport LT, Tactical, and Elite product lines, each module includes Intel XMP 2.0 profiles for easy setup and support.

“This density of memory module will start to become broadly available in the desktop space with our new 8Gb-based Ballistix DDR4 16GB modules,” said Jeremy Mortenson, worldwide DRAM product marketing manager, Crucial. “We anticipate that our new modules and component densities will enable smaller form factors and the next generation of computers to have capacities that were traditionally limited to the server or high end desktop space.”

Ballistix DDR4 16GB memory is expected to ship in late July. Available in 16GB modules or in kits up to 128GB, the modules come with a limited lifetime warranty.[2] For more information about Crucial DDR4 memory technology, visit


Crucial Announces 8Gb-based DDR4 Server Memory - Computex 2015
     Sat, Jun 06 2015 | 12:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

New modules provide significant cost advantage compared to current 4Gb-based DDR4 modules


Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, is now sampling Crucial DDR4 2400MT/s 8Gb-based RDIMM, LRDIMM, and ECC UDIMM server modules through its Technology Enablement Program. Engineered to enable higher density modules, 8Gb-based DDR4 memory allows for increased performance, bandwidth, and energy efficiency.


Higher density modules, when combined with the next DDR4 speed increase of 2400MT/s, create greater channel bandwidth and channel density, as well as increased energy efficiency. Ultimately, these benefits provide more value per gigabit than current 4Gb-based offerings.  Taken together, the increase in density, bandwidth, and value deliver a lower total cost of ownership for users.


“Our 8Gb-based modules will enable the next-generation of energy efficient servers to more readily keep up with the ever-increasing memory density and bandwidth demands of virtualization, HPC, and big data applications,” said Michael Moreland, worldwide product marketing manager, Crucial. “These modules can play a significant role in nearly any server strategy, no matter whether it is a new installation of a single server or the scale-up or scale-out of an existing deployment.”

Designed for the next-generation processor product families, Crucial 8Gb-based server memory is extensively tested to mission-critical standards and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.1  The Technology Enablement Program provides channel partners who are currently developing or evaluating DDR4-capable platforms early access to Crucial DDR4 8Gb-based RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, and ECC UDIMMs. The new modules are expected to available in late July and will be included in the Reliance Program.
