Crucial launches the fastest DDR4 memory kit

Crucial today shared details on its Ballistix Max DDR4-5100 RAM geared toward gaming. This memory kit already holds the current world record for the fastest memory at DDR4-6666 (6666.6 MHz) on HWBot. The Ballistix Max DDR4-5100 (BLM2K8G51C19U4B) memory kit competes with the best RAM in the market and comes in a dual-channel package with a density of 16GB. The two 8GB memory modules run at 5,100 MHz with CAS latency timings configured to CL19-26-26-48. Like any other high-speed memory kit, the Ballistix Max DDR4-5100 requires a DRAM voltage of 1.5V to operate at the advertised frequency. Given the high frequency, however, we suspect that the memory modules are using Micron’s E-die chips. The Ballistix Max DDR4-5100 will have limited availability at launch. Crucial has it listed for $900 (around Rs. 66,000) on its web store.
