Micron Technology, Inc. has begun sampling DDR5 Registered DIMMs (RDIMM), based on its 1znm process technology.
DDR5, the most technologically advanced DRAM to date, will enable the next generation of server workloads by delivering more than an 85% increase in memory performance. DDR5 doubles memory density while improving reliability at a time when data center system architects seek to supply growing processor core counts with increased memory bandwidth and capacity.
DDR5 also enables the increased reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) that modern data centers require.
Crucial, Micron’s global brand of computer memory and storage, also today announced its next-generation portfolio of high-performance Crucial Ballistix memory for gamers and extreme overclocking enthusiasts.
Engineered using leading-edge Micron die and featuring an all-new design identity, the portfolio is comprised of two new lines: Crucial Ballistix and Crucial Ballistix MAX.
Offering a range of speeds from 2400MHz to 3600MHz and densitie of 4GB to 32GB, the new Ballistix line features a modernized aluminum heatspreader in black, red, or white. RGB options include 8 zones with 16 LEDs and can be customized and controlled using popular RGB software.
The Crucial Ballistix lineup is available in desktop (DIMM) or laptop (SODIMM) form factors and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
The flagship offering within the new portfolio, Ballistix MAX memory delivers speeds from 4000MHz to 4400MHz and densities of 8GB and 16GB. Featuring extruded black aluminum heatspreadersfor maximum heat dissipation, Ballistix MAX DIMM modules include integrated precision thermal sensors for real-time temperature monitoring.
RGB options feature 8 zones with 16 LEDs, which can be customized and controlled with support fromASUS Aura, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light software. A removable lightbar can be replaced with a 3D printed version for ultimate personalization.
Crucial Ballistix Max memory is available in desktop (DIMM) form factors and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
Crucial Ballistix SODIMM memory is available in speeds from 2666MHz to 3200MHz and capacities of 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB.
The new Crucial Ballistix and Ballistix Max lines replace Micron’s existing suite of Ballistix Sport, Tactical, and Elite products and will be available February 4, 2020, at crucial.com and through select global channel partners.
