Crucial at CES 2015
CES 2015 is in full swing and today we were able to stop by and have a visit with Crucial and find out what they've got planned for 2015.
Crucial was showing off their new DDR4 memory which is something that we've talked with them about for a couple years now ,but just like everyone else, were waiting on motherboards and CPU's to finally catch up and support DDR4 memory. DDR4 is still probably a year or so away from mass adoption but the overall performance gains that are offered by DDR4 is enough to get enthusiast excited and Crucial is ready with their Ballistix Sport and Ballistix Tactical memory kits.
On the SSD side of things, Crucial was showing off their 2 new drives, the BX100 and the MX200. Basically the BX100 is the "entry" level drive that offers great performance at a lower price while the MX200 is the enthusiast drive that has a couple extra bells and whistles. Both drives offer some great performance at prices that are a whole lot more affordable than they used to be and the lower prices have really helped boost sales as drives are now very affordable for anyone. Both the BX100 and MX200 are offered in capacities all the way up to 1TB (the BX100 is offered in 120GB, 250GB, 500GB, and 1 TB capacities, the MX200 is offered in 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB capacities).
