Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR4-3000 32GB Memory Kit Review

Crucial's Ballistix memory is known by gamers and enthusiasts and has been around for what seems like forever. When it comes to DDR4 Crucial has three different Ballistix lines, Ballistix Elite, Ballistix Tactical, and Ballistix Sport. We've already taken a look at Ballistix Elite and Ballistix Sport DDR4 kits so that leaves us with the Ballistix Tactical kit which we are taking a look at today. Ballistix Tactical sits in between the Elite and Sport kits in Crucial's product stack. The kit we are taking a look at today is the BLT4K8G4D30AETA kit, which is a 32GB (4x8GB) kit that runs at 3000 MHz with timings of 15-16-16-35 at 1.35V. These kits has a nice lower profile heatspreader as well so CPU clearance should not be an issue. Let's get this kit in our test system and see what it can do!

Crucial MX300 (525GB & 1050GB) Solid State Drives Review

A few months ago we took a look at Crucial's MX300 Solid State Drive. This was the company's first consumer solid state drive to make use of 3D NAND and make them the second company (behind Samsung) to offer a 3D NAND drive to consumers. By using 3D NAND Crucial is able to keep the costs of the drive lower and enable higher capacity drives. When the MX300 was initially launched Crucial only offered a 750GB version, but now the they have filled out the lineup with 275GB, 525GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities. Today we will be testing the 525GB and 1TB (1050GB) versions of the drive. The offer the same 530 MB/s sequential read and 510 MB/s sequential write speeds as the 750GB. Let's jump in!

Crucial MX300 750GB Solid State Drive Review

3D NAND is something we started talking about two years ago when Samsung released their 850 Pro solid state drive which was the first consumer solid state drive to feature 3D NAND. With the launch of the MX300 Series Crucial becomes the second company to use 3D NAND in a consumer solid state drive. The drive is engineered with Micron 3D NAND technology, resulting in an endurance rating of up to 220TB total bytes written by leveraging larger NAND cells to deliver top-notch performance and prolong endurance. Furthermore, Dynamic Write Acceleration, a technology that uses an adaptable pool of high-speed and single-level cell flash memory, enables faster saves and file transfers. Compared to 16nm planar NAND, Micron’s 3D TLC NAND triples that density. This not only will help lower solid state drive pricing, but also enable higher capacity drives. Currently the MX300 is only available in a 750GB capacity, which has a price of only $199.99.
