Many people think that the important components in a computer are the CPU and graphics card, but they often ignore the memory. Everyone thinks that it is enough and can be used. Otherwise, the memory also plays an extremely important role, so the size of the memory will directly affect the speed of the program. Nowadays, the price of memory is not so crazy. I believe that for laptop users if they want to upgrade their laptop performance through DIY, the easiest way is to start with storage space and memory. With the advancement of technology, DDR4 memory technology has become quite mature. When the mainstream frequency is above DDR4-2666 and even can support DDR4-3200 notebook platforms, many manufacturers of course also aim at this market, launching many series of products for users to choose from.
This time we introduce to you the TeamGroup T-FORCE ZEUS SO-DIMM DDR4 notebook memory launched by TeamGroup, a well-known manufacturer. The ZEUS series currently has a frequency of 2666MHz (CL19- 19-19-43), 3200MHz (CL22-22-22-52), and 3200MHz (CL16-20-20-40) in 3 versions, and the capacity ranges from the lowest 8GB (8GBx1) to the highest 64GB (32GBx2) Players who can choose freely to meet different needs, what is special about this memory, how strong is it? Let’s experience it together.
The T-FORCE ZEUS SO-DIMM DDR4 package is listed in a simplified transparent plastic package. The memory itself can be seen from the front and it is marked as the 64GB (2x32GB) 3200MHz version. The memory features are marked on the back.
The bottom left of the package indicates support for Intel XMP 2.0 technology and various safety certifications.
The body of T-FORCE ZEUS SO-DIMM DDR4 is at a glance. The front and back sides are covered with particles. Stickers designed with lightning elements are placed on the front to add a fighting atmosphere. From the back, you can clearly see that the memory is full of particles.
The memory model is marked on the back, and it can be seen that the specification is 32GB DDR4-3200, the timing is CL22-22-22-52, and the voltage is 1.2V. The particles are printed with the Team Group Logo, and you can see that the print on the top is marked as T4D20488HT-32, which is actually the group of SK Hynix’s H5ANAG8NCMR-XNC, which is the default DDR4-3200 version that meets the JEDEC standard (good health)
Comes with a T-FORCE sticker and product manual.
It’s actually difficult to verify the actual performance by looking at the appearance, so of course, we have to come to an actual test! This time I used the MSI GE66 Raider Gaming Laptop that I have on hand. The original built-in memory capacity is DDR4-3200, 16GB (2x8GB), and other test specifications are listed below; Basically, it is not difficult to replace the memory of this type of gaming laptop. For the MSI GE66 Raider, as long as the back cover of the base is carefully removed, you can see the location of the memory covered by the auxiliary patch. , Then you can directly replace the original 16GB memory with the 64GB TEAMGROUP T-Force Zeus SO-DIMM DDR4-3200!

Test Hardware Specifications
|Processor Type||Intel Core i7 10th Generation|
|Graphics Card||RTX2070, GDDR6 8GB|
|Hard drive size||1TB NVMe|
|Installed RAM||64GB / 32GBx2 (3200MHz)|
|Screen size||15.6 FHD|
|Operating system||Windows 10|
After disassembling the notebook base, the red circle is the memory location. Then you can directly replace the memory.
After the installation is complete, let’s start the test directly! First of all, it can be verified from CPU-Z and Thaiphoon Burner that the memory is indeed DDR4-3200, a single 32GB, a total of 64GB capacity, and supports XMP 2.0, and here you can verify that the internal TeamGroup customized particles are actually provided by SK Hynix. The model is H5ANAG8NCMR-XNC, which can be regarded as the third-generation C-Die with good overclocking capability.
After reading the specifications, let’s take a look at the actual running scores. You can see that when the memory capacity is increased to 64GB, the AIDA64 Cache&Memory Benchmark has achieved 44361/46789/42958 MB/s in reading/write/copy. Compared with the original memory, the reading and writing performance has been improved by 3~4%, and the copy performance has been improved by as much as 9%; in addition, it has also obtained a 31.25 GB/s performance on MaxxMem, which is a pretty good performance. In addition to the measured screenshots of this ZEUS DDR4-3200 64GB; the original 16GB data work comparison reference is also provided below.
The original notebook used 16GB DDR4-3200 memory test results. After the capacity is increased, it is obvious that the measured data has risen a lot (you can compare it with the 64GB version above).

After this upgrade, the memory performance has indeed improved, allowing the already powerful GE66 Raider to evolve to another level. Overall is quite satisfied. Of course, in addition to gaming laptops, as long as SO-DIMM is used Memory devices, whether it is creator laptops, business laptops, writing laptops, or some MINI PCs, most of them can be upgraded by themselves, especially some miniaturized PCs also have SO-DIMM memory designs, including direct correspondence AMD series ASUS PN50, ASRock A300 and the like, once the memory capacity is increased to 64GB, I believe that the overall performance will be more satisfied.
Although the general commercial and documents may not use the 3200MHz speed, don’t forget that there are memory-eating monsters such as Chrome Browser. As long as you go straight to 64GB, you don’t have to worry about being eaten up by these hungry monsters. For users who want to upgrade their laptop memory recently, you might as well consider taking a look at this group of TeamGroup T-FORCE ZEUS SO-DIMM DDR4 notebook memory.
