Teamgroup MP34 – the new “force” of the SSD market in test

The MP34 represents Teamgroup’s new SSD – Teamgroup itself calls it “the new force” of the market. This new generation is the direct successor of the MP33, achieves higher read and write values and has thus been optimized in terms of performance.

Promised are 3000 MB/s read and 2600 MB/s write – in CrystalDiskMark. These are remarkable values for an NVMe Gen3 SSD – whether the MP34 can keep the expectations, we have tested for you.

The MP34 is supposed to bring the specified data throughput to the PC via an NVMe Gen3 x4 interface – the NVMe protocol version used here is 1.3. At first glance, the data is convincing – especially the high TBW of 1.66 PB is enormous – the SSD should thus also survive a write-intensive everyday life for a very long time. As with other SSDs of this quality class, this is aimed at enthusiasts or professional users – but the future-oriented gamer should also keep an eye on this SSD, because the high TBW should make the SSD last a very long time.

Scope of delivery

The box the SSD comes in is plain and presents the product through a plastic window. There is no “gaming look” or anything like that – the plain white cardboard box only has the product details printed on it.

The chips that cover the SSD are covered by a sticker. This again includes the specifications and serial number – so all the important data is bundled.  The back does not include any other RAM components.

Coolers etc. are omitted. Especially since more and more motherboards come with their own cooling block, we think this is a sensible way to save costs.

Test system

We installed the following components as our test system:

Performance

To compare the SSD’s performance to other SSDs we’ve already tested, we use a number of different benchmarks – specifically AS SSD, CrystalDiskMark, ATTO Disk, and HD Tune Pro.

The AS SSD benchmark shows what the SSD is capable of. The MP34 competes with the best SSDs we have tested – both in read and write. Some of our current records can be broken here! The benchmark score also fits into the picture and speaks for itself. Although it is not at the performance top in the AS Copy benchmark, it still ranks well.

The CrystalDiskMark is particularly interesting – because Teamgroup uses it to advertise the read and write rates. Good to see: The SSD clearly exceeds the advertised values with a plus of 400 MB/s in read and 200 MB/s in write. Particularly in sequential writing, the performance can be improved.

In the ATTO Disk Mark, the read performance is in the good upper midfield, but the write performance is right at the top. That is still an understatement, because it currently wins the performance crown in write mode.

Very high average rates are measured in the HD Tune – only at the beginning is a small outlier downwards visible. However, this is only a single “negative peak” – and can be neglected in most scenarios. The access times are top; nothing stands in the SSD’s way here, either.

All in all, the SSD convinced us in terms of performance. The advertised values are met, and it plays right at the front in most areas. It can stay like this, Teamgroup!

Conclusion

The MP34 presents a good overall picture. A high data throughput that mostly meets the specifications, a high guaranteed write performance, five years warranty – and all that at a humane price (test time ~€115, current: € 111.76 *). The access times are also convincing.

The combination of price and lifespan make you think twice, even if you don’t need the performance yourself at the moment. For a few euros more compared to a conventional SATA SSD, you already get top performance – at a solid price. However, whether it is the new “force” in the market remains to be questioned.

In summary – well-rounded product, Gold Award!
