The Crucial story starts with Micron Technology, Inc., one of the largest dynamic random access memory (DRAM) manufacturers in the world and the only one based in the U.S. Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, Micron manufactures DRAM chips and assembles them into high-quality memory modules for sale to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") worldwide. Over the past 26 years, Micron has learned that when you make some of the very best memory in the world, lots of companies want it, from computer makers to wireless device manufacturers to printer producers.
But then Micron asked, well, what about the end user? What about the everyday folks who want to upgrade their existing systems with OEM-quality memory—the home desktop user, the IT network guy, the student notebook user? Why don't we offer our memory to the public, at factory-direct pricing? So in 1996, Micron responded to a growing demand for high-quality memory upgrades among end users who wanted the best possible performance from their systems. Micron launched Crucial Technology in November of that year, and for the first time, end users had the opportunity to buy directly from the manufacturer the same memory modules bought by the world's major OEMs for original installation in their systems.
They now offer a range of products from ram, USB drive, flash cards as well as graphics cards, yes that’s right graphics cards. These are only available via there website and we decided to get one in and compare it to the competition.
Today we are looking at one of the few Graphics cards offered by them the Ati X850XT 256mb, we recently looked at Connect3d’s version of this card and were impressed with its overclocking ability and performance. It will be interesting to see if Crucial card performs and overclocks as well as Crucial’s main specialty is memory, but I personally think they wouldn’t allow just anything to carry there name so it will be interesting to see how it performs.
