TeamGroup T-Force DELTA RGB DDR5 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) 6000 MHz CL40 Memory Kit Review – Enter The Next-Gen

Published:

TeamGroup is the creator of some of the most high-quality memory products for the PC industry. They have come a long way since its inception in 1997 and went on to become one of the fastest-growing product manufacturers and a leading brand around the globe.

Since the arrival of DDR4 memory in the mainstream market, TeamGroup started a separate line of DIMM kits under their new T-Force brand. The T-Force brand is the more enthusiast and gamer-aimed memory series with a sheer focus on quality and performance. For this review, TeamGroup sent me their brand new T-Force DELTAα RGB DDR5-6000 32 GB CL38 memory kit.

TeamGroup T-Force DELTAα RGB 32 GB DDR5 Memory Kit Specifications

The TeamGroup T-Force DELTAα RGB 32 GB DDR5 memory kit is designed to offer a combination of great gaming aesthetics and performance. The kit I received is optimized at a clock speed of 6000 Mbps (PC5-48000). The memory kit consists of dual 16 GB DIMMs which make up a total of 32 GB in capacity.

The memory kit has a tested latency spec of CL38 and the timings are 38-38-38-78 for this specific kit. The voltage set at reference is 1.25V and the memory kit comes in an unbuffered package with an on-die ECC (Error Correction) design. The memory kit is fully compliant with AMD's EXPO and can be easily set to its rated clock speeds through the BIOS shipped on AMD AM5 motherboards.

  • Series: DELTAα RGB
  • Module Type: 288 Pin Unbuffered DIMM On-Die ECC
  • Capacity: 16GBx2
  • Frequency: 6000 Mbps

Teamgroup T-Force DELTAα RGB 32 GB DDR5 Memory Kit Unboxing and Close Up

The T-Force DELTAα RGB series comes in a small cardboard package. It has red and black accents all over it (there's also a white version of the same kit available). The front of the package has the name and specifications sticker along with the marketing logos for T-Force and DELTA RGB brands. The front also reads the Lifetime Warranty for the DDR5 memory kit.

The back of the box lists a brief overview of the T-Force brand along with detailed features of the T-Force DELTAα RGB series memory. The package also includes warranty paper & a T-Force logo sticker.

Out of the box, I can note that the DELTAα RGB from T-Force isn't your standard DDR5 DIMM and actually rock a very premium look with a matte black aluminum shroud and the RGB diffuser in a very aggressive design.

The T-Force DELTAα RGB series memory modules feature a large diffuser that is embedded on the top of the DIMMs.

dsc_0344-custom-13

The front side of the T-Force DELTA RGB DDR5 memory has the T-Force, DELTAα, and DDR5 RGB labels while the other side has a sticker with the serial number and the specifications listed.

The dual-tone looks fantastic and the RGB lighting makes this memory kit look great with almost all kinds of build.

The large diffuser does make the modules stand out a bit taller which might cause an issue in terms of heatsink clearance if you're running an air cooler. Otherwise, the memory is one great piece of work by T-Force.

Following is how the TeamGroup T-Force DELTAα RGB DDR5 memory kits look like when installed on your PC:

Intel Z790 / Core i9-13900K DDR5 Memory Test Setup

For testing, I used the latest Intel Core i9 13900K processor along with the Gigabyte Z790 AERO G motherboard which can support higher frequencies memory without any issues. The XMP & EXPO profile for each respective ram kit was enabled.

DDR5 Memory Kit Performance Tests With Intel Core i9-13900K

I have separated the performance tests into two sections. The first section consists of pure synthetic and general workload tests while the second section would be focusing on gaming performance and how different games are affected by higher-clocked memory sticks.

AIDA64 Memory Bandwidth Benchmark

For AIDA64 memory tests, I ran the kits at stock speeds since overclocking isn't the main focus here as stated above.

SuperPI

Super PI is used by many overclockers to test the performance and stability of their computers. In the overclocking community, the standard program provides a benchmark for enthusiasts to compare “world record” pi calculation times and demonstrate their overclocking abilities. The program can also be used to test the stability of a certain overclock speed.

Gaming Performance Tests

Gaming applications generally don't see huge gains with different memory kits but DDR5 has enabled a huge gain in memory frequency which can impact gaming performance. Moving from the stock 2133 Mbps (DDR4) to 6000+ Mbps can have a huge effect on performance and the improved CAS timings on some of the high-end SKUs can result in better overall FPS and system responsiveness.

Furthermore, while 8 GB has become the standard for gaming PCs, modern applications such as editing software and multi-tasking users can benefit hugely from 16 GB and 32 GB kits which have become more common in the gaming market over the last couple of years.

Conclusion - Affordable RGB & EXPO Memory Kit Starting At Sub-$100 US

The TeamGroup T-Force DELTA RGB DDR5 series has received a nice upgrade over its Delta R series predecessors based on the DDR4 standard. With DDR5, T-Force has delivered higher performance & faster transfer speeds, that in return provide nice gains in applications and gaming. The memory also features enough headroom for overclocking. Even with its 1.25V EXPO spec, the DIMMs can be pushed to +400 Mbps with ease. The net return is minimal over the JEDEC 4800 Mbps speed but you can tinker around and get even better overclocks.

Although you will be paying a premium for the RGB aesthetics, the good thing about the T-Force Delta Alpha series is that it's very affordable. The DDR5-5600 kit starts at sub-$100 US pricing and the one we tested is currently listed for $99.99 US which is a great price if you are building a EXPO-specific PC. Furthermore, the kit is compatible with all AMD AM5 motherboards and doesn't show up any compatibility issues which might be the case when running XMP kits due to QVL.

In this price point, the T-Force Delta Alpha DDR5 memory kit offers a great design and very fast speeds for its price which should make for a great Ryzen PC build.
