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:

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."
