Crucial hops aboard the SLI memory bandwagon

— 2:18 PM on October 10, 2006

After Corsair, Kingston, Mushkin, and OCZ, Crucial is now the latest memory manufacturer to introduce "SLI-Ready" enthusiast memory modules with support for Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP). The new SLI-ready Crucial modules are available as part of the company's DDR2-800 Ballistix and Ballistix Tracer lines. Ballistix SLI-ready sticks can be had with 512MB and 1GB capacities as either individual modules or dual-channel kits, while the Ballistix Tracer variants only come as 1GB sticks and 2GB dual-channel kits. Both lines are rated for 4-4-4-12 timings at 2.2V.

As nice as the Ballistix specs may be, the new kits aren't cheap. Crucial's selling 2GB Ballistix bundles for a wallet-searing $440.99, but a comparable EPP-equipped DDR2-800 kit from Corsair with identical timings can be had for close to $300 on Newegg.
