Micron has decided to retire the high-speed RAM brand Crucial Ballistix. As a result, EOL (End of Life) status has been awarded to the Crucial Ballistix, Crucial Ballistix MAX and Crucial Ballistix MAX RGB product lines. We add that Micron has been offering such products to enthusiasts and gamers since the days of the DDR1 standard.
In a brief press release, the company announced a change in business strategy. It will focus on conventional desktop and server RAM under the Crucial/Micron brand. We are talking about “bare” strips without radiators, which fully comply with the JEDEC specifications. At the same time, Crucial-branded SSDs will continue to be produced.
“We remain focused on expanding our NVMe and portable SSD portfolio for PC and console gamers. In addition, Crucial’s JEDEC DDR5 memory provides gamers with DDR5-enabled PCs greater performance, data transfer rates and bandwidth than previously available with Crucial Ballistix memory,” said Teresa Kelley, Vice President and General Manager Micron Commercial Products Group.
