TeamGroup Announces 32GB T-Force Vulcan Z and Dark Z DDR4 Modulesby Gavin Bonshor on March 27, 2020 1:00 PM EST
One of the world's largest DRAM memory manufacturers TeamGroup has unveiled its first DDR4 memory kits featuring 32 GB sticks under its gaming-focused T-Force brand. The T-Force Vulcan Z and T-Force Dark Z will the first from the brand to be offered in 32 GB x 2 kits in dual-channel kits.
Starting with its T-Force Vulcan Z range, TeamGroup intends to release two different speeds with its 32 GB single stick options. It will be made available in DDR4-2666 and DDR4-3000 32 GB x 2 kits, which can operate in both single and dual-channel. The T-Force Vulcan Z features an aluminium heat spreader which is available in red or silver, with TeamGroup claiming that it uses selected memory IC chips for stability and performance.

Looking at the latency timings, the new T-Force Vulkan 2 x 32 GB kits, the DDR4-2666 kit has latency timings of CL 18-18-18-43 with an operating voltage of 1.2 V, while the DDR4-3000 kit has timings of CL 16-18-18-38 at 1.35 V.
The T-Force Vulkan 2 x 32 GB will be available in just DDR4-3000, with CL 16-18-18-38 latency timings with an operating voltage of 1.35 V. Like the Vulkan Z, the Dark Z also features aluminium heat spreaders, with an armoured design and individually selected memory ICs. The Vulkan Z range will also be available with a choice of two colors, grey and red.

TeamGroup doesn't specifically go into detail about which memory ICs its new 2 x 32 GB kits will feature, which opens the door for the manufacturer to change which vendor memory chips it uses. All of TeamGroup's DDR4 kits support XMP 2.0 memory profiles, with the T-Force Vulkan Z and Dark Z kits compatible with both Intel and AMD platforms.
Each T-Force Vulcan Z and Dark Z memory kit across its range has a lifetime warranty. At present, TeamGroup hasn't stated when stock will hit retail channels, nor has it stated its intended pricing structure for the new 2 x 32 GB memory kits.

Oxford Guy - Friday, March 27, 2020 - linkI remember the Transformers cartoons from childhood. I never watched them. They seemed silly. Well, it seems that a lot of adults are still at that level, given the existence of products like this.
Grow up, please. Intel needs to stop putting skulls on SSDs and memory makers need to stop selling "kits" (a sad joke to someone who actually built a kit computer) of Transformers toys.
AshlayW - Friday, March 27, 2020 - linkI agree tbh. The stylised fins do look pretty stupid, or aimed at 12 year olds.
BTW in Transformers' defence, they can get away with it, the original cartoons are pretty decent.
PeachNCream - Friday, March 27, 2020 - linkAlthough they don't have RGB, it is a disappointment that the metal decorative bits look silly.
dotted - Saturday, March 28, 2020 - linkWhy should people not like these things? What does it do to you? If you want green PCB RAM just buy those, you aren't forced to buy this memory kit or any other similar looking kit.
Rozvellt - Thursday, July 22, 2021 - linkIronically, people who are bothered by trivial things - like the look of a memory stick - are the ones showing childish mentality, and the ones needing to ''grow up'' :)
''Look at me! I'm so mature that even as child I refused to watch Transformers! Can I have a cookie now, mommy? Didn't I prove I'm a big boy???'' lol
But, to be fair, it's always entertaining to see people pretending to be more mature than they actually are (it's called ''psychological projection'', btw) on the internet, with comments like those.
Murderclick - Saturday, March 28, 2020 - linkAwkwardly designed heatspreaders are easy to fix, at least there is no RGB here. I'm writing this to the kids - RGB operates on electricity and those electrical signals interfere with RAM chips, generate heat etc. What's the point of this publication if there is no mention of the price?
Dragonstongue - Saturday, March 28, 2020 - linkwow are some people comment silly.
First off Teamgroup, that "transformers" badge, is their Branding, they have been using such for many years now.
much less silly than others I have seen
RGB to use enough electricity to create enough heat and/or interfere with DRAM signalling, would have to be very power hungry, I have never ever heard of this when it is built on the RAM sticks directly, as it uses such small amount of power in the first place.
they are micro lights, not full power bulbs afterall, would suck if they were using full wattage lights, that is for sure..given how much power goes through the ram sockets, likely is only in the mV range, i.e very !@# unlikely to cause problems
(honestly, person who staid that bit, that is first time I have EVER heard anyone say that fluff..forum after forum for many years, never heard that LOL
I would imagine, the companies who produce it, would not be doing so if it would cause problems down the line, seeing as product sent back to them (RMA) from such failures would NOT be beneficial for business.
I do agree though, at least there is no RGB on them, they look pretty decent, but sadly nothing out of the "normal" compared to every other vendor out there, just different ram sinks, black PCB..could look a lot worse, timings are "mehh" as well IMO
