Computex 2014 Crucial revealed their new Ballistix Elite DDR4 RAM modules during a briefing this week. The Crucial Ballistix Elite will run at 2666 and 3000MHz in the initial release products, but expect speeds to ramp up quickly.

The new RAM modules will come in capacities of 4 and 8GB for early product, and then ramp up to 32GB sticks. The clean design of the modules are designed to allow wide compatibility with CPU cooling solutions.

The modules are very hefty and have a substantial weight to them. The heavy shroud allows for efficient cooling. DDR4 features a lower power draw of 1.2V, a significant reduction from 1.5V DDR3. This should ease cooling requirements a bit, as less power creates less heat. Once the DDR4-enabled X99 chipsets hit the streets in Q3 we expect rapid uptake of DDR4.
