Team Group made a solid name for themselves a couple of years ago when they started offering some of the fastest memory on the market at a price that made other memory makers red in the face. Since then Team has been a part of the enthusiast community worldwide and even expanded their product offerings to include among other things flash memory drives and even solid state drives.


Today we are testing the new Team Group Xtreem-G1 solid state drive. The G1 is based on the Indilinx Barefoot controller and has a rated read speed of 260MB/s and a write speed of 180MB/s. The Barefoot controller is capable of using up to 64MB of high speed DRAM cache and Team stuffed the drive to the max with very fast cache memory.


We have tested several Indilinx Barefoot controlled SSDs over the last year and despite what the specifications say, they do differ from one manufacturer to the other. The main differences between drives come down to the manufacturer of the NAND flash, the speed of the cache and the firmware loaded on the drive. Let's take a look and see what combination Team Group used on their new Xtreem-G1 drive and see how it compares in performance and price to several other SSDs we have tested in the past.
