Over the last few months, overclockers have come tantalizing close to overclocking DDR4 RAM to 6GHz, however no person’s fairly been capable of get there. Efficiently, till now. The mannequin new world file for the quickest reminiscence frequency now sits at merely over 6GHz (6,016.8MHz, to be precise). And technically, it is really 6016.eight MT/s, with a base clock working half that tempo, however let’s not get too hung up on semantics.
It comes as no shock that an overclocker achieved the feat utilizing G.Experience reminiscence, and notably with an 8GB Trident Z Royal module (only a few of the right RAM accessible). Of the perfect 20 quickest DDR4 frequencies validated at HWBot, G.Experience accounts for no less than 15 of them, and presumably extra, as there are two unlabeled entries.
“Reaching DDR4-6000MHz has been our purpose for fairly a while, and we’re terribly excited to have the facility to amass this vital milestone along with MSI,” acknowledged Tequila Huang, agency vp at G.Experience.
Famend overclocker Toppc achieved the 6GHz overclock utilizing an MSI MPG Z390I Gaming Edge AC motherboard with a Core i9-9900Okay processor put in. As is often the case with these kind of factors, the acute overclock required liquid nitrogen to maintain up the modules good and chilly.
This may be impossible we’ll ever see a DDR4 RAM gear hit 6GHz with out the benefit of LN2, although 5GHz is a risk—the Trident Z Royal line is already geared up in kits of as loads as DDR4-4800.
Now the query is, how a lot additional can overclockers go along with DDR4? If I wished to guess, I’d say spherical 6,500MHz is the ceiling, and I am undecided that’s realistically attainable. We’ll probably want DDR5 to interrupt the 10GHz barrier for system reminiscence, which we nonetheless haven’t obtained out of doors of GPUs.
