Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB memory is visible from afar

Judging by recent product launches, the most important feature in a new stick of memory these days isn't speed, reliability, or capacity. You know what it is: RGB LEDs. Ballistix has now joined the epic rave party taking place inside our computer cases with its new Tactical Tracer DDR4 RGB memory.

Unsurprisingly, Ballistix is targeting this memory at gamers. The sticks come in speeds starting at 2666 MT/s and include XMP profiles. Ballistix hasn't published any information yet about latencies or voltages, but we're expecting these characteristics to be in line with the existing Tactical DDR4 sticks the company already has on offer.

The RGB LEDs can be customized using the Ballistix Memory Overview Display software, though the company says the lighting is compatible with third-party software like Asus Aura, Aorus RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light. These DIMMs have a small leg up on their competition, though—the top bar can be removed and customized using 3D-printable models that Ballistix will make available on its website.

Ballistix says the Tactical Tracer DDR4 RGB memory will be available in the third quarter of this year, but hasn't yet made pricing information available.

    We need to start spreading rumors about how all these blinkenled’s interfere with your peripheral vision and reduce your performance. That’s the only way this stupid trend will die down.

      Everyone does the RGB420GamerZ shit since it adds next to nothing in regards to the BoM cost of the product.

      If I saw someone in the crowd using one of these as a glowstick it certainly would get my attention.

        I wonder if, years from now when all this stuff is obsolete, people will be making retro decorations with all of this RGB absurdity. People use old SDRAM sticks and CPUs for things now, so it’s not hard to imagine. There’s probably some way to apply voltage directly to the proper pins to make these glow.
