Computex delivers new world records for DDR5 memory overclocking
The current world record surpasses 11254 MT/s with DDR5 memory.
Last week at Computex, G.Skill organized an overclocking competition featuring the most famous members of the OC community. With so many knowledgeable people at one place, it didn’t take much time for someone to beat a new world record, in this case for DDR5 memory frequency.
Overclocker Seby9123 has surpassed 11240 MT/s on June 8th, which is 20 MT/s higher than his last record from May. He has been pushing for higher frequencies during Computex and this result was his highest achievement thus far, which actually gave him the first place in the competition. The latest scores were almost exclusively featuring G.Skill memory and ASUS Z790 motherboard setup:
At the same time, Hicookie and Sergmann were working on their own overclocking attempt but with Gigabyte hardware (Z790 Tachyon and AORUS memory). Turns out, just hours after Seby’s OC world record was verified, they submitted their record featuring 11254 MT/s. This is currently the highest memory overclocking recorded.
Interestingly, this score was achieved without liquid nitrogen on the memory, supposedly it was only required for the Intel Core i9-13900K CPU down clocked to 803.9 MHz. Since this is a frequency competition, CPU clocks, memory timings or the fact that only one memory module was used is nothing out of ordinary.
