ADATA has announced that its XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) has set a new record in overclocking DDR5 RAM. Experts were able to get the DDR5-4800 module to work with an effective frequency of 8118 MHz with timings CL50-50-50-160-210.
In a press release, ADATA points out that XPG is the first RAM vendor to officially announce that it has hit the 8000 MHz effective frequency threshold for a DDR5 memory module. On the published images of the CPU-Z program, it can be noted that the XMP profile of the RAM module used for overclocking is designed to work in DDR5-6800 mode with CL46 timings at a voltage of 1.35 V.
With a lower voltage of 1.25 V and timings CL52–52–52–96–148, the RAM module was overclocked to a speed of 8104 MHz.
The XPG brand was created as a business unit dedicated to the production of high-performance products for gamers, esports athletes, overclockers and tech enthusiasts.
Earlier it was reported overclocking an unnamed DDR5-6200 RAM kit from Gigabyte (presumably the Aorus brand). The effective clock frequency of the RAM modules was raised to 8008 MHz with the timings CL50-50-50-125-150-2T. In other words, the effective memory mode was DDR5-8000. To achieve this speed, it was necessary to raise the memory voltage to 1.5 V.
