Crucial Launches Ballistix Tracer Memory

Crucial Technology, a division of Micron and one of the world's leading direct memory upgrade providers, today introduces Crucial® Ballistix™ Tracer™ high-performance memory, featuring a black printed circuit board (PCB), black integrated heat spreaders, two rows of activity-indicating light emitting diodes (LEDs) and ground-effects LEDs. As an addition to Crucial's Ballistix high-performance memory line, Ballistix Tracer memory caters to enthusiast gamers and case modders by marrying low-latency, high-speed performance with a revolutionary aesthetic design.

Ballistix Tracer memory features two rows of eight "chasing" red and green LEDs atop the module, circulating at varying speeds proportional to usage. A custom-designed circuit relays bus activity to the LEDs, allowing them to accurately reflect usage of each memory module by the rate of change of the LED indicators. In addition, eight blue ground-effects LEDs emit a constant glow near the pins.

"The introduction of the Ballistix Tracer memory series takes Crucial¿s high-performance memory to a whole different level," said John Stroozas, Crucial¿s Director of Engineering. "Tracer modules are for the hard-core enthusiasts demanding not only the best possible stability and performance, but also the revolutionary visual effects that set Tracer modules apart from the competition. The activity-indicating LEDs offer our customers the opportunity to identify which games and other applications make their Tracer memory work the hardest."

The Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC4000 (DDR500) module is available in a density of 512MB at timings of 2.5-4-4-8 (currently priced at US$159.99). Every Crucial Ballistix Tracer module comes with integrated custom-designed aluminum heat spreaders, a decorative sticker, limited-lifetime warranty, multilingual user guide, Crucial's award-winning customer support, free technical support, and free shipping (for a limited time) on qualified orders within the contiguous United States.
