Today, we have something a little different from the standard memory review article. TeamGroup approached TPU a few months ago offering up a special high-frequency dual-rank DDR4 kit with hand-picked ICs. Normally, if it’s not available to the public, these type of samples are declined for obvious reasons. However, rules are meant to be broken and exceptions can be made.
While we were teased by the DDR4-4000 memory, timings stayed a mystery until the box arrived. TeamGroup isn’t a stranger to the PC enthusiast market as the company was the first to provide DDR5-6400 for TechPowerUp to review and continues to offer various DDR4 and DDR5 high-frequency memory kits under the Xtreem and Delta T-Force lines respectively.
Under the T-Force Xtreem line, TeamGroup offers a wide range of configurations, starting at 3200 MT/s all the way up to 5333 MT/s. This includes DIMM capacities of 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB. What we were sent is TeamGroup’s T-Force Xtreem ARGB DDR4-4000 2x 16 GB kit with timings of 15-15-15-35, which is in itself an impressive achievement. Considering DDR4 started at 2133 MT/s and the technology is now fully matured, we are seeing a lot of these higher binned kits for sale. With 3600 MT/s being standardized as the “sweet spot” for AMD and Intel platforms, it will be interesting to see how this memory kit benchmarks in comparison to other low latency kits.
