Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4-3200 Memory
Shoppers of desktop memory are probably very familiar with Crucial, a brand that has been in business since 1996 and became synonymous with their online Memory Advisor tool (originally the Crucial Memory Selector when that was introduced back in 1998). Beyond offering compatible memory adhering to JEDEC standards for home and business machines Crucial has embraced the enthusiast segment, and since 2004 the Ballistix brand has been a competitor in this space.
Today we’re taking a look at new Ballistix memory in the form of a dual-channel DDR4 desktop kit that offers 3200 MT/s speeds out of the box via XMP 2.0, and has the potential to overclock further. Crucial sent along both 16GB and 32GB kits, and we are focusing on the 16GB kit in this review.
Product highlights for the Ballistix Sport LT series from Crucial:
- Speeds start at 2400 MT/s
- Faster speeds and responsiveness than standard DDR4 memory
- Ideal for gamers and performance enthusiasts
- Multi-channel memory architecture maximizes data rates
- Digital camo heat spreader available in white, gray and red
- Easy plug-and-play installation
- Intel XMP 2.0 profiles for easy configuration
- AMD Ryzen Ready
- Optimized for the latest Intel 300 Series platforms
- Limited lifetime warranty
These UDIMMs are part of the Sport LT series, offering a smaller overall footprint while still providing some impressive performance numbers via XMP 2.0 profiles. We tested it out in an Intel system and then moved on to have some fun with memory overclocking in a Ryzen 5 2400G system with integrated Vega graphics. Read on to see how it performed, and if faster memory can make a noticeable difference.
