Final Thoughts and Conclusion
Just getting into content creation myself I am glad to see products coming out with creators in mind. Even though I have not had any bad experiences with memory kits in the past it’s nice that TeamGroup has put in some extra effort to make sure the T-Create Classic kit is as dependable as possible.
Products designed for workstation type tasks have different goals in mind than what a gamer would be after. From a performance perspective, out-of-the-box, we found the T-Create kit on the lower end of our benchmarks, but this is by design. As one of the first Creator oriented kits we’ve reviewed, we had to compare it to gaming oriented kits.
Gaming oriented memory almost universally use Intel’s XMP standard, which is a factory supplied overclocking profile. This takes a kit that would otherwise run somewhere between 2133MHz and 2666MHz and overclocks it for you to 3200Mhz or more with tighter timings. This works great for gaming most of the time, but can be accompanied by system instability and sometimes outright incompatibility that comes from overclocking.
TeamGroup is going the other direction with the T-Create memory and using JEDEC standard speeds and timings to give you memory that will run on pretty much any system with no fuss, and no guesswork. AMD’s Ryzen 3000 and the current Ryzen 5000 series CPU’s are rated for 3200MHz memory, and Intel’s upcoming 11th gen CPU’s are expected to natively support this memory speed as well. If you aren’t overclocking, you can pretty well guarantee rock solid stability and predictable performance, exactly what a creator needs.
TeamGroup’s T-Create Classic is a great looking kit that fills a growing niche with content creators looking for reliable memory at an affordable price.
Great Job, TeamGroup!
