- Crucial Announces Ballstix Tracer Memory line

Crucial's enthusiast "Ballistix" line of memory modules have just gone a notch higher with the release of their "Ballistix Tracer Memory", these adding more charisma to the appearance of the modules with LED activity lights on a jet-black heatspreader. For further details you can get to the official PR at Hexus's site and also Crucial's product page including video footage of the LED's in action.

Glasgow, UK, 30 Nov., 2004 - Crucial Technology Europe, a division of Micron Europe Limited and one of the world's leading direct memory upgrade providers, today introduces Crucial(R) Ballistix(TM) Tracer(TM) high-performance memory, featuring a black printed circuit board (PCB), black integrated heat spreaders, two rows of activity-indicating light emitting diodes (LEDs) and ground-effects LEDs. As an addition to Crucial's Ballistix high-performance memory line, Ballistix Tracer memory caters to enthusiast gamers and case modders by marrying low-latency, high-speed performance with a revolutionary aesthetic design.

Ballistix Tracer memory features two rows of eight "chasing" red and green LEDs atop the module, circulating at varying speeds proportional to usage. A custom-designed circuit relays bus activity to the LEDs, allowing them to accurately reflect usage of each memory module by the rate of change of the LED indicators. In addition, eight blue ground effects LEDs emit a constant glow near the pins.
