Motherboard and RAM module manufacturers continue to compete with each other in overclocking DDR5 modules. To this end, companies often hire specialists to overclock PC components. Gigabyte has announced that its in-house overclocker Chi Hua Ke, aka HiCookie, has set a new world record for overclocking DDR5 memory, reaching an effective frequency of 11,254MHz.
The experiment used the flagship motherboard Z790 Aorus Tachyon, as well as a 16GB Gigabyte Aorus ARS32G5D83 RAM module. The data transmission rate of the last enthusiast could be increased to 11,254 MHz. That’s just 14MHz more than Seby9123’s previously reported record. Compared to the originally declared frequency value of 5600MHz for the Aorus ARS32G5D83 memory module, the increase was 101%. Times were CL64-127-127-127.
The system was based on the flagship Intel Core i9-13900K processor. During the overclocking process, all cores of the chip remained active, but their working frequency was reduced to 800 MHz.
We won’t be surprised if the new overclocking record for DDR5 memory is soon broken by another overclocker.
