While we wait for the wide-scale adaptation of DDR5 into the mainstream market, Taiwan’s Kovan Yang thinks otherwise and went off creating a new world record frequency number for DDR4 RAM.
Using a combination of Intel Core i9-11900K, MSI MEG Z590I UNIFY, and of course, the Kingston HyperX Predator 4600MHz 8GB module, he has managed to break the new top record and get it at a whopping 7156MHz. The validation process for this record has been taken seriously too which both CPU-Z and HWBOT have reviewed and given their nods for the work submitted by Kovan.
Kingston has been always the confidence brand when the topic is about memory solutions. With industry leaders such as Acer and MSI signed up for a partnership, it is easy to see how vast Kingston’s global market share is. Oh, as a side knowledge of the day, the reason most memory overclocking tests are performed on ITX boards is that the circuitry and controller are directly linked with less distance and fewer hoops to pass through compared to other form factors that run 4 RAM slots, therefore letting the RAM gaining a bit more headroom. Also, the silicon lottery game is as crucial as well as a well-made high-grade memory chip that somehow all got into the same RAM module needs a bit of buyer’s luck to be obtained.
