TeamGroup Hits DDR5 Validation w/Motherboard Makers

DDR5 is slated for a 2021 release, and TeamGroup is working around the clock to be one of the first vendors to push out their products. The memory manufacturer has already started the validation phase with the top motherboard companies in the industry, including Asus, MSI, ASRock and Gigabyte.

Just to start things off, TeamGroup plans to release its first wave of DDR5 memory modules with a capacity of 16GB. The memory modules are rated for DDR5-4800 and only require a 1.1V DRAM voltage to operate. The specifications are not final, of course, but that’s what TeamGroup expects to put out.

Team Group MP33 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD

This NVMe model in M.2 2280 is using the PCI Express 3.0 standard. Leveraging NVMe, the drive has maximum quoted speeds of 2,100/1,700MB/s and random 4K throughput of 220K IOPS. These are not brilliant numbers anno 2020; then again, if it’s a multitude faster than a SATA3 SSD or faster, who am I to complain, really. The TBW values we learned ar listed at like so for the models 512GB / >400TB 1TB / >600TB 2TB / >1,000TB, which is a lot as you could completely write the SSD 600x before NAND would get exhausted.

Team Group T-Force Xtreem ARGB 3600C14 16GB

Undeniably, the styling of Team Group’s T-Force Xtreem ARGB memory modules is a distinguishing feature. The sticks use a black aluminium heatspreader in combination with 15 zones of LEDs pumping out light through a mirror-finish type diffuser. Personally, I like the LED styling which I would describe as well-balanced and surprisingly subtle in terms of light intensity.
