G.SKILL has announced that they have officially broken the ceiling of DDR5 frequency with an astounding 7000MHz achievement.
Utilizing the same Trident Z5 DDR5 2x16GB CL 40 kit armed onto a combo of 12th Gen Intel Core CPU and Z690 chipset motherboard, the aforementioned speed is obtained while keeping the latency same at CL 40-40-40-76 which is still the industry’s leading and lowest figure as of now. Aside from the in-house overclocker’s skills, G.SKILL also attributed the high-quality IC chips from Samsung being the main reason that the RAM modules are capable of running at such high frequency in the first place.
Aside from breaking the barrier, Intel’s official XMP 3.0 listing has included G.SKILL’s DDR5-6000 and DDR5-6666 during the latest revision with the latter being the fastest among all of the entries. That means that even the most casual users with no prior experience of overclocking can enjoy top-tier speeds through a single option change in the BIOS.
Given that G.SKILL breaks their own record on a weekly basis, can they do DDR-8000 before 2021 ends? Let us know!
