We have been speaking about overclocking makes an attempt once in a while relating to DDR5 reminiscence. We wrote that there’s a quick time left for the ten,000 MHz restrict, which MSI introduced a number of days in the past that it broke a brand new report.

However now Gigabyte is on the scene. The Gigabyte OC group led by HiCookie achieved a brand new world report by reaching 18 MT/sec larger pace. Such overclocking processes require LN2 cooling (for each CPU and reminiscence), a number of expertise, endurance, in addition to platform changes.

HiCookie selected an Intel Core i9-12900K processor that was clocked all the way down to 2.1 GHz and restricted to a dual-core configuration for overclocking makes an attempt. Nevertheless, a particular mannequin designed for overclocking, the Gigabyte Z690 AORUS Tachyon motherboard was used. There are solely two UDIMM slots on the motherboard we’re speaking about, however just one RAM slot is most popular in such trials.

The overclocking group adjusted the timing to “46-58-58-46-104-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR)” to go as excessive as 10022 MT/s (10022 MHz). In different phrases, based on MSI’s report, each the timings are low and the frequency is excessive.

As an extra info, the HWBOT benchmark requires verification by oscilloscope measurement. This ensures that the damaged world report is legitimate.
