Final Words & Conclusion
Final Words & conclusion
The TeamGroup Delta RGB series offers users a great performance out of the box. The looks are very nice, and the RGB lighting application is great. You can control it via motherboard software. Of course, this kit is aimed only at Intel users (for now). The heat spreader comes in black and white; we got the first one. The range of available frequencies is very broad. The slowest module in this series operates at 6000 MHz (and now it has a lower default latency of CL38 and lower voltage of 1.25 V instead of 1.35), and the fastest one reaches an astounding 6400 MHz. There's some potential in the provided kit, the M-Die chips used here allowed tweaking from 6000 CL40 to 6400 CL40, which is a very good result.
TeamGroup has managed to make the Delta RGB nice; you may opt for a Black or White-themed heat spreader; it’s matte and looks attractive. Well, there are too many labels in my taste. The RGB diffuser (embedded on the top of the DIMMs) makes the lighting very nice in reception.
The memory chips used here come from Hynix; the M-die chips are used here. We achieved a nice tweaked CL40 with 6400 Mhz at 1.4 V (1.35 V is the baseline value). You can always lower the latencies and leave the standard 6000 MHz frequency.
The TeamGroup kit that we checked provides a default frequency (6000 MHz) that will be enough for practically all users, and the XMP 3.0 profile makes life easier. The stock performance is in a range of expected (thus – high-end). There’s some headroom still available, so if you want more, you can try to overclock the memory even further. The reviewed kit on our Z690 platform made it possible to achieve 6400 MHz with CL40 with the Intel system. It’s a good result; you need to remember that those are 16 GB modules. As we usually state –reproducibility is never guaranteed, and your results may vary. The heat spreader is not low-profile (46 mm), so you can encounter clearance problems with some air CPU coolers. The 32 GB option is a lot for most users nowadays, but the current price for the DDR5’s is very steep (mainly due to the shortage of the PMIC) and doesn’t look to be lower in the coming days. The price for this 2 x 16 GB kit is ~460 USD, which is very expensive, it’s high-end RAM though. The overclock that we achieved was very nice. We can give TeamGroup a “Guru3D Recommended” award for this very fast and overclockable kit. The only real (other than too many labels on the heatsink) downside is the price that most users cannot accept for the moment, especially compared to the DDR4 kits, which don’t have much worse performance results (for now, it can change with the mass introduction of the DDR5 above 6400 MHz).
