Crucial 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 Crucials
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.
The Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC4000 (DDR500) module is available in a density of
512MB at timings of 2.5-4-4-8 (currently priced at US159.99).

Crucials Director of Engineering. "Tracer modules are for the hard-core
enthusiasts demanding not only the best possible stability and performance, but
also the revolutionary visual effects that set Tracer modules apart from the
competition. The activity-indicating LEDs offer our customers the opportunity to
identify which games and other applications make their Tracer memory work the
hardest."

The Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC4000 (DDR500) module is available in a density of
512MB at timings of 2.5-4-4-8 (currently priced at US159.99). Every Crucial
Ballistix Tracer module comes with integrated custom-designed aluminum heat
spreaders, a decorative sticker, limited-lifetime warranty, multilingual user
guide, Crucials award-winning customer support, free technical support, and free
