Crucial 1,066MHz DDR2 RAM
Crucial Technology is shipping a new RAM format in its Ballistix and Ballistix Tracer lines. PC2-8500 is a DDR2 module, and is clocked at 1,066MHz, which is more than 400MHz faster than the average user's system memory. The module is also built with Crucial's Enhanced Performance Profiles technology, which should simplify the overclocking process in compatible computers. Users can by the RAM in 1 and 2GB kits, at prices starting around $228; the main difference in the Tracer kits is the addition of cosmetic LED lights.
