Ballistix Elite 3466 MHz DDR4 Memory Kit Review

Published: | Posted By:

When it comes to memory one of the longest running brands is the Crucial Ballistix which makes sense considering that the parent company, Micron, builds the chips powering many of the popular high performance modules on the market.  Crucial has been known to deliver some extremely solid memory but has always been plagued with "not being all that fast". 

Well it would seem some of that is changing with their Ballistix Elite DDR4 line with speeds topping out at 3466Mhz.  Still not the fastest you can buy but better than nothing.

Our last Ballistix memory review was the Ballistix Sport LT 16GB Red DDR4 2666Mhz Memory Kit, which was good and represents the entry speeds for performance or enthusiast level DDR4. If you want a little more speed and capability, you can have a look at some Ballistix memory at the other end of the performance spectrum, the Ballistix Elite 3466MHz DDR4 Memory Kit. 3466 MHz memory speed is amazing, but it’s becoming common amongst high end memory. 3466Mhz is a full third faster than the Ballistix Sport LT 16GB Red DDR4 2666Mhz, which is enough to get anyone’s attention.

To be fair Crucial is offering OEM replacement modules so, for many of you wanting to keep your factory processor warranty it is important to run memory that is approved and compatible with your processor.  Crucial is a front runner in that space whereas other memory makers focus on high-performance modules that are not warranty friendly.
