Today let’s talk about the trending topic that has been widely discussed since last year: Creator. What is the difference between this type of products and the gaming products that have been very popular in recent years? Which manufacturers are on board with this trend? What are the features of TEAMGROUP’s “T-CREATE” series?
Around last July, Intel announced the result of an internal survey, which pointed out that about 200 million people around the world use PCs to create photo, video and 3D content, and 60% of them are interested in the so-called “Creator PC”. Just like the rapidly growing gaming market in recent years, Intel believes that this is a very promising market in the future, therefore PC manufacturers are flocking to release a variety of creator products. The entire market also began to have some news and reviews as the expansion of the diversification of the number of products, and the number of consumers using these products increased, which is probably the origin of this creator trend.
The difference between gamers and creators
From the origin previously mentioned, we can see that both creator products and gaming products come from an increase in user demand: The “nerd” who played games in those years jumped on the scene and become a gamer, the entire gaming community was suddenly energized and the gaming market was created. With the growing development of self-media and the improvement of the quality and functionality of creative software, a large number of creators have appeared. In addition, the higher consumer demand for PC specifications has also created a market for creators.
However, the literal definitions of the two are completely different. The following is the explanation from these aspects.
1. On the aspect of appearance
The appearance of gaming products tends to be more black and red, with crazy looks or even RGB lighting to catch people’s attention.
The appearance of the creator products is a low-key silver gray with simple and elegant design. The style is both tasteful and pleasant.

T-CREATE CLASSIC 10L DDR4
2. On the aspect of performance
The pursuit of “extreme
” performance in gaming products requires even faster speeds, so overclocking is the answer.
For creator products, the priority is to pursue “stability
”, and speed must be increased under the premise of stability, rather than unlimited pursuit of extreme performance.

3. On the aspect of expansion
The expansion of gaming products tends to be more comprehensive in terms of peripherals
, such as support for high-quality headphones, high-definition live camcorders and other gaming accessories.
The expansion needs of creator products are high speed transfer interfaces like Thunderbolt3
, or large storage spaces such as NAS
T-FORCE SPARK RGB USB
This is the most basic difference between the gaming market and the creator market, and other differences may vary depending on manufacturer’s characteristics.
Which brands have entered the “Creator” market currently?
Here are a few brands as examples.

Of all the memory manufacturers, TEAMGROUP was the first to make a new product that was truly exclusive for creators.

What is T-CREATE?
T-CREATE is an all new brand launched by TEAMGROUP in September this year. It was released later than PCB board manufacturers, but it is still the first among storage manufacturers. T-CREATE spends a lot of time investigating actual usage needs. Compared to laptops, memory and SSD are not products that can be used directly, therefore it is necessary to accurately classify consumer groups and understand their usage in order to launch products that respond to consumers’ needs.
For the differences between TEAMGROUP, T-FORCE, and T-CREATE, which are the three brands under TEAMGROUP, the following is the ability distribution diagram that we often see when playing games, so you can easily see what their characteristics are.
In addition, here is a product matrix of existing T-CREATE products. More T-CREATE products will be launched in the future to expand this product matrix.
According to market demand, the T-CREATE series did not start with a 4000MHz
memory or a Gen4x4 SSD that reads and writes 5000MB/s, but rather focused on durability
, with frequency and speed taking second place.
You can go to the official website of TEAMGROUP T-CREATE for more detailed product specifications.
