Over the previous couple of months, overclockers have come tantalizing near overclocking DDR4 RAM to 6GHz, nevertheless nobody’s pretty been able to get there. Successfully, until now. The model new world record for the quickest memory frequency now sits at merely over 6GHz (6,016.8MHz, to be actual). And technically, it’s truly 6016.eight MT/s, with a base clock working half that tempo, nevertheless let’s not get too hung up on semantics.
It comes as no shock that an overclocker achieved the feat using G.Expertise memory, and notably with an 8GB Trident Z Royal module (just a few of the perfect RAM accessible). Of the very best 20 quickest DDR4 frequencies validated at HWBot, G.Expertise accounts for a minimum of 15 of them, and presumably additional, as there are two unlabeled entries.
“Reaching DDR4-6000MHz has been our goal for pretty some time, and we’re terribly excited to have the power to acquire this important milestone together with MSI,” acknowledged Tequila Huang, firm vp at G.Expertise.
Renowned overclocker Toppc achieved the 6GHz overclock using an MSI MPG Z390I Gaming Edge AC motherboard with a Core i9-9900Okay processor put in. As is normally the case with these sort of points, the acute overclock required liquid nitrogen to keep up the modules good and chilly.
This can be very unlikely we’ll ever see a DDR4 RAM gear hit 6GHz with out the advantage of LN2, though 5GHz is a threat—the Trident Z Royal line is already equipped in kits of as a lot as DDR4-4800.
Now the question is, how so much further can overclockers go together with DDR4? If I wanted to guess, I might say spherical 6,500MHz is the ceiling, and I’m undecided that is realistically attainable. We’ll most likely need DDR5 to interrupt the 10GHz barrier for system memory, which we nonetheless have not received outdoor of GPUs.
