Team Group has quietly added 32 GB unbuffered DDR4 memory modules to its product catalogue and plans to start sales in the near future. The modules will feature JEDEC-standard data transfer rates and will be aimed primarily at OEMs as well as high-end desktops and workstations that benefit from loads of RAM yet do not necessarily need extreme bandwidth.
Team Group’s Team Elite UD-D4 32 GB DDR4 unbuffered DIMMs rely on 16 memory chips featuring a 16 Gb capacity from Micron. The memory modules are rated for DDR-2666 mode with CL19 19-19-43 timings at 1.2 V, which is fully compliant with JEDEC’s standards. The UDIMMs are not equipped with a heat spreader since they are not meant to be overclocked by the manufacturer.
UPDATE 10/30: Team Group uses Micron's 16 Gb memory chips for its Elite 32 GB modules.
|Team Group's Team Elite UD-D4|
|DDR4-2666||CL19 19-19-43||1.2 V||1×32 GB||32 GB||TED432G2666C1901|
|2×32 GB||64 GB||TED464G2666C19DC01|
Team Group will offer its Team Elite UD-D4 32 GB DDR4-2666 UDIMMs as single modules and as dual-channel kits. The former will be aimed primarily at computer makers that need to cut down their BOM cost, while the latter will sell to all kinds of clients that need a dual-channel 64 GB memory subsystem.
By offering 32 GB modules with standard JEDEC speed and timings, Team Group maximizes their compatibility with systems. Meanwhile, an important thing to remember about 32 GB UDIMMs is that they may require a BIOS update as not all motherboards support them out-of-box.
Team Group’s 32 GB UDIMMs as well as dual-channel 64 GB (2×32 GB) kits will be available in Japan starting from October 25. Pricing is unknown, but expect it to be comparable to other DDR4-2666 32 GB modules/kits.

imaheadcase - Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - linkI never understood why they sale performance 16gig ram in first place, most systems for games/media will get 32gig default at least now-a-days.
damianrobertjones - Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - linkFor gaming and just gaming... 8Gb should/could/would be enough. But, yeah, 32Gb does seem like a sexy number.
fred666 - Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - linkOn a mid to high end gaming machine I'd put 16 GB but I agree that it shouldn't make a big difference in performance. And 32 GB is definitely not "default".
Xajel - Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - linkI will not accept any system with 8GB, the minimum is 12GB which is weird, so 16GB is the new standard.
tiggers - Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - linkJust wait. Programmers will be like: but 32gb of memory is almost common now, and continue to write bloatware to fill the void.
ptmmac - Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - linkBloatware has seen its day and is hopefully dying. The basic premise that the next generation tech will make up for my lack of disciplined use of computing resources has had to give way once Denson Scaling and Moore's Law have been limited. I suspect the next driver to 32 Gigs of ram will happen when someone can make system ram that does not lose memory with power loss or at least DDR5 is common place.
I admit to a bit of optimism in this view. Looking at article's on the web, 16Gigs was adopted in 2016 and should be plenty for 80% of users until 2021-2022. Back in 2000 ram use was doubling every 2 years. 32 Gigs will probably be plenty until at least 2030 unless there is some change in the computer architecture.
PeachNCream - Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - linkDon't see how its any more or less quiet than when G.Skill launched the latest Royal memory and got a pretty much identical pipeline story.
Korguz - Thursday, October 24, 2019 - linkin other words, they didnt make a big deal of the release, and just put out press release...
