A month ago, I gave confirmation that Micron was going to be releasing Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 1333MHz memory modules within the month:
August 12, 2008 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 Memory Modules to Debut Later this Month

I have now received confirmation, and have verified on Crucial's website, that the DDR3 1333MHz Ballistix Tracer modules have been released.  The following configurations have been listed thus far, with an official press release to follow very shortly:

Package: Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMM (with LEDs)
Feature: DDR3 PC3-10600
Specs: DDR3 PC3-10600 6-6-6-20 Unbuffered NON-ECC DDR3-1333 1.8V

4GB Kit (2GB x 2)
2GB Kit (1GB x 2)
2GB standalone
1GB standalone



http://www.crucial.com/store/listmodule/DDR3/~Ballistix%20Tracer%20240-pin%20DIMM%20(with%20LEDs)~/list.html




The only concern I have thus far is if these will run on Nehalem motherboards.  Even though Intel has stated that the memory multipliers will remain unlocked on all Core i7 processors, I believe the "memory must be less than 1.65v" rule is still in place, no?  Perhaps Micron is working on Nehalem-optimized modules as well, as the email states "[they] will be introducing other Tracer modules throughout the rest of the year."

lol click the link, it'll tell you Wink


$331.99



that means it'll end up costing a good $500 for 2GB x 2GB x 2GB in Tri-Channel for Nehalem  Embarrassed

Woot, official press release was put out today:

October 7, 2008 - Lexar Media Unveils Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 Memory for Enthusiasts and Gamers
Introducing the World's First DDR3 Memory Modules Featuring Activity-indicating LEDs



Check this out - I just received news from Micron's engineering department that they're still finalizing the specs of the Ballistix Tracer DDR3 modules for the X58 platform.  This means that we will see even more Ballistix later down the line, once Intel finalizes the specs:



by the way, here's a sneak peek of the modules running in dual channel.  courtesy of K404 at the XtremeSystems forums. Wink
