Gigabyte overclocks DDR5 memory to 10022 MT/s, a new world record

AORUS DDR5 memory at 10,0022 MT/s

Just two days after MSI broke the 10,000 MT/s world record in DDR5 memory overclocking, Gigabyte OC team lead by HiCookie manages to put additional 18 MT/s and push the world record even higher. 

Obviously such memory overclocking require LN2 cooling (for both the CPU and memory), lots of experience and patience, but also platform adjustments. In this case, HiCookie used Intel Core i9-12900K processor which has been downclocked to 2.1 GHz and reduced to dual-core configuration.

A Gigabyte Z690 AORUS Tachyon motherboard was used, which is a special model designed for overclocking. It only hosts two UDIMM slots, but for attempts like this, only one slot is occupied.

The overclocking record has been broken with AORUS DDR5 memory, which has reached a speed of 10022 MT/s (5011 MHz) with 46-58-58-46-104-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR) timings. In this case, both the timings are lower and the frequency are higher than MSI OC team record from April 26th.

HWBOT competition requires validation with oscilloscope measurement. This ensures that the world record that has been broken is valid.

The 10,000 Mbps memory transfer speeds are still a domain of extreme overclocking, while the fastest DDR5 kits currently on sale are still sub 7000 MT/s. Memory makers are slowly releasing faster kits and gradually lower the price of existing DDR5 modules. Yet, the price of DDR5 memory is still more than twice as high as DDR4. Hopefully this will change once Intel releases its Raptor Lake series and AMD announces its first DDR5 consumer platform known as AM5.
