In one of the most amazing coincidences of 2022, Teamgroup announced memory that looks a bit like a competitor’s product mere hours before that competitor announced its latest holiday pricing special. To be fair, the two products appear similar only from one angle as Teamgroup uses porous material and pierced edges to increase surface area and direct airflow, whereas its competitor uses nothing but screen-printed foil.
Specifications are not at all comparable between brands, as T-Create DDR5 ranges from “Classic” desktop DDR5-5600 to “Expert” DDR5-6400.

In fact, the closest match between brands are the fake heat spreaders on the T-Create SODIMMs.
While TeamGroup’s competitor got instantly famous for overclocking, the overclocks of T-Create modules will be programmed into XMP (on-DIMM configuration setting) and guaranteed to work. Or maybe AMD EXPO. Or perhaps both. In fact, the only advantage offered by Sabrent right now is that you can actually buy its product…right now. Oh, and that $150 price for 32GB of DDR5 doesn’t hurt.
