Crucial has flexed its Ballistix muscle as the Ballistix Sport series of DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules, have been rolled out today.

Particularly toned for mainstream gamers and enthusiasts, so it is claimed, Ballistix Sport modules are designed for both AMD and Intel camps, including support for the Sandy Bridge platform.

Shipping in a variety of module sizes and kits, the Ballistix Sport series pumps iron with what is billed as a sleek new heatspreader design, adopting a classic black and white (almost silver) colour palette. Crucial describes the new series as delivering industry-standard specifications, that require minimal BIOS tinkering.

Specification sheets indicate that DDR3 modules range from DDR3-1,333 speeds with CL9 latency, to DDR3-1,600 speeds delivering CL10 latency, at the 1.5V mark. On the DDR2 side of the spectrum, DDR2-800 speeds with CL5 latency, extend to module options for DDR2-1,066 speeds with CL7 latency, using 1.8V of juice.

DDR2? That's one up from a slate, isn't it?
Please stop trying to make analogies. I beg of you.
Your feeble use of the analogy is as pathetic as a fish using a chocolate teapot… on a motorbike… err
