Crucial Ballistix 2x 512MB PC3200 (DDR400) Memory ReviewFormer staff writer -
Well, Crucial's intro into the performance arena turned out pretty well. Even though I wasn't able to push the memory too far, the Crucial Ballistix™ sure gave the Mushkin Level One Black a run for it's money. In fact, the Mushkin memory showed higher numbers in only one result, and that was the Overclocked PCMark 04 Overall score.
Currently the Ballistix™ DDR line is only available in 512MB and 256MB sizes. I hope that in the future, we can see some 1GB low-latency, high performance memory from Crucial. Most people I know prefer to run one bank of memory (unless they have dual channel) to help reduce the variables when overclocking. We'll just have to wait and see where Crucial takes their performance line.
Crucial's Ballistix™ memory has defiantly proven to be a contender in the performance market. Those who were thinking about other brands, might want to reconsider their options.
