13 overclocking records from various benchmark categories were broken during Computex 2018, all using G.SKILL DDR4 memory kits built with high performance Samsung 8Gb components with the latest Intel processors and performance motherboards.
Memory World Record Broken at DDR4-5543MHz
A new memory frequency world record was set this week at the G.SKILL Computex booth by Toppc, a renowned professional extreme overclocker, reaching DDR4-5543MHz using Trident Z RGB memory on a MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel® Core™ i7-8700K processor. On the same day, another pro extreme overclocker named Kovan Yang overclocked the Trident Z RGB memory to a whopping DDR4-5541.4MHz, reaching the second spot on the fastest memory frequency rankings, with an MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel® Core™ i7-7740X processor. This marks the first time that the top two memory frequency records are set on two different chipset platforms.
