We’re in the middle of a transition from the DDR3 memory standard that has served us well for a decade to the new DDR4 standard. With higher bandwidth at lower voltage, DDR4 seems a perfect match for our compute-intensive multi-core CPU world. In this article Benchmark Reviews examines Crucial’s Ballistix Elite DDR4 enthusiast memory, which runs at an eye-watering 3466Mhz.
