Review T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD Storage

Review T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD Storage - TeamGroup, a professional PC hardware facilitator industry, often sends us to discuss their products. We have already discussed the question of their RAM and SSD. The illustration is T-Force Zeus DDR4 16GB RAM or T-Force Estuary SSD MAX RGB.

This time, we also have 2 SSD sections from TeamGroup. The first is the TeamGroup PD1000 Portable SSD which we discussed. The second is the one that will be reviewed in this post, the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD.

The products from TeamGroup are indeed quite a lot. As data, TeamGroup is an industry from Taiwan that has been professional in introducing PC accessory features. They often produce hardware such as SSD, RAM, flash drives, and others. They have a product line known as T-Force, which is primarily for gaming purposes and T-CREATE, which is focused on architects.

T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD itself is one of the interesting TeamGroup products. At least based on our experience when reviewing this product.

Oh well, as bonus news, T-Create has 2 product lines. The first is the T-CREATE Classic and the second is the T-CREATE Expert. Expert type is a TeamGroup product that deviates from the enterprise or industry level. Meanwhile, the T-CREATE Classic was brought in as a product for architects who wanted fast and normal forked hardware.

Both T-CREATE product lines have several types of hardware such as SSD Meters. 2, 2.5 inch SSD, as well as Desktop RAM. Special for T-CREATE Classic, there are also products for laptop RAM. For the part that we are discussing this time is the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD which is an SSD product with a Meter form factor. 2 What kind of product is this? Just follow this next discussion.

Based on the specification data, the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD appears as a product with a Meter form factor. 2 but has a PCIe Gen3x4 interface with NVMe 1. 3. This thing really makes the appearance of this SSD to be faster than an SSD with a SATA interface. This SSD type comparison question can be seen in more detail in the post that discusses SSD types on Striker.ID.

The T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD itself has a faster type, namely the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe 4.0 SSD. This model has a PCIe Gen4 x4 with NVMe 1.4 interface which is faster than PCIe Gen3x4 with NVMe 1. 3. However, the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD is fast and expert.

The T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD that we are discussing is a 1 TB version. On the market, there is also a 2 TB version which certainly has a larger capacity but also has a more expensive price tag.

Test Form

Before discussing appearance, we need to convey our basis for trying the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD RAM on a computer with an AMD Ryzen 2000 series processor. The results of the display do not prove that when this SSD is used on another PC it will produce similar results. There should be some definite comparisons if this SSD is used in computers or laptops with different specifications.

We install the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD on the Computer feature with these further details.
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G
  • VGA: MSI Nvidia 1050 Ti 4GB
  • RAM: DDR4 2 X 4 GB
  • Motherboard: MSI B350 MATE Computer·
  • PSU: Simbada

Fill Box

Let's operate the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD box first. A kind of SSD Meter marketing box. The other 2 NVMe, nothing special about the marketing box. On the front, you will see data on product inquiries, capacities, and features that can be considered as selling figures.

At the bottom, there is a note "unleash creativity" which proves that this product can be forked so that architects can be more flexible in creating. Question data "made for or by Creator" is also a highlight in the marketing box along with other features. This seems to prove that this product will be very suitable for use by content architects such as film editors, graphic designers, and others.

On the back of the marketing box, there is complete detailed data with an explanation of reading and writing skills. There are also scribbles on how to install this SSD on a desktop or laptop computer, of course if the motherboard has a meter slot. 2 NVMe.

At the bottom there is an explanation of Teamgroup questions and also a complete warranty label with serial number. There is also data that explains if this SSD product is made in Taiwan.

Design

There is nothing exclusive about this SSD concept. Because indeed the majority of the SSD Meter concept. 2 NVMe have a uniform shape. The only difference is that the top and back covers are usually filled with brand data. Similar to the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD, which appears with a white guard with product type data.

While on the back, there is a sticky note on the data questions that were already in the marketing box. only this sticky tag is recommended not to be removed. The reason is because if it is revoked, the product guarantee will be burnt. Therefore, try for 5 years, according to the promised guarantee period, not having to revoke the label.

The T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD itself weighs 11 grams, categorized as light as an ordinary NVMe SSD. The product format has a depth of 80 millimeters, a width of 22 millimeters, and a thickness of 3.7 millimeters. The dimensions are quite ordinary for an SSD Meter. 2 NVMe.

Feature

The feature question data has actually become visible in the marketing box. However, let's discuss it again as data accessories. The T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD is claimed to be a product for architects who are always tasked with multitasking and want a forked product with an attractive concept and appearance.

Some of the things that make the performance claimed to be good are the high stability features. This feature works by mixing a very reliable controller with normal firmware. The goal is that this product can create a very normal appearance in dealing with various professions.

There is also a well-selected 3D TLC Flash feature (3K P or E Cycle). This feature has passed rigorous testing to provide the best work area so that architects can focus on their creations without fear. Not only that, this SSD also supports the ECC LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) feature. This feature introduces a large level of capabilities that ensure the security and integrity of information in dealing with various professions.

Performance

Next, we try the appearance of the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD on a Desktop Computer with the details that have been mentioned earlier. We try to find out in advance the question of this product through Crystal Disk Kabar. The data can be seen in the painting at the bottom of this.

CrystalDisk Kabar T- CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD

It can be seen from the painting, that the SSD that we are experimenting with is indeed a product of the Team Group with a capacity of 512 GB. There is also data about this SSD interface, namely the SATA NVMe interface in the form of moving PCIe 3 x 4.

From that data, it is known that the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD supports the S. Meter feature. ART In simpler language, S. Meter. AR T is a feature for monitoring, knowing, and also notifying various problems related to storage. Features that are actually quite common on SSDs.

There is no TBW(TeraByte Written) query data from this SSD on CrystalDisk. However, this data has actually been described in the detail section. In that section there is news that the TBW of this SSD is 600 TB.

As bonus data,

SSD is a type of storage that has a consumption limit. This consumption limit is signaled by the TBW(TeraByte Written) SSD. This TBW is indicated by the continued use of writing information on the SSD, so that the SSD life continues to decline. The illustration, if the SSD holds 10 GB of information, until the SSD has carried out TBW of 10 GB.

If the TBW SSD is successful, the SSD cannot write information but is still allowed to read information. Usually, TBW SSD is categorized as far. Generally up to 5 to 7 years or more. With a TBW of 600 TB, it is obvious that this product can be used for a very long time.

Next, let's discuss the appearance of the T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD. On the official website, this SSD is claimed to have a read speed of 2,100 MB or a record speed of 1,700 MB or s based on Crystal Disk Mark. Let's try it ourselves to see that claim.
It appears from the information above, based on the CrystalDisk Mark 8 benchmark, this SSD has a read speed of 2.162 MB or and a record speed of 1.701 MB or s. The speed is slightly higher than the results directed on the official web.

We also tried the speed of reading and recording this SSD using other benchmarks. We use AS SSD Benchmark 2 to see the read and note speed of this SSD. The results can be seen below.

The results obtained are slightly smaller than the results of CrystalDisk Mark. It seems that this SSD has a read speed of up to 1,894 MB or s for read speed and 1,578 MB or s for record speed. But these results always prove that the speed of this SSD is categorized as fast.

We also tried to test the transfer of information or copy files using the AS SSD Copy Benchmark. Next is the result.

It appears that this SSD can handle data transfer with the speed of 1026, 85 MB or s in a duration of 1.05 seconds for ISO type files. There is also data regarding the speed of transferring information for program file types and game file types. As a differentiator, the Team Group CX2 Classic SATA SSD has the speed of information transfer of 449.06 MB or s in a duration of 2.39 seconds for ISO files.

Because the focus is for architects, we tried this SSD for the needs of content architects. We guide the rendering of a 12-minute tempo 4K movie. We render to full HD using the Filmora program installed on this SSD.

The result can be seen in the painting. Required render time is 53 minutes. Real results will be faster when using a computer with finer details.

Conclusion

The T-CREATE CLASSIC PCIe SSD can be considered an attractive SSD from the appearance side. Moreover, there is a 5-year guarantee that makes this SSD still attractive to buy. However, to buy this product, you have to spend around Rp. 2 million for a capacity of 1 TB.

Other similar products with similar details have a price tag of IDR 2 million. This price issue can definitely be a particular drawback for those on a limited budget. However, this product can compete with other top category SSD products which makes it an attractive option.

We can conclude that this SSD has several advantages. Those advantages include
  • Looks ok and tight
  • Features and guarantees that deserve appreciation
  • high TBW
One thing that really bothers us is the focus of this product for architects. For us, an NVMe SSD with a gaming gimmick or both architecture can be used for various purposes. does not need special focus. However, it seems that TeamGroup has certain thoughts on this.
