Since the release of DDR5 memory, many motherboard manufacturers have chosen to cooperate with overclocking experts to continuously push the frequency of DDR5 memory to new highs. Recently, GIGABYTE teamed up with extreme overclocking player HiCookie to set a new world record for DDR5 memory overclocking.
This overclocking is using the Gigabyte Z790 AORUS Tachyon motherboard. The dual DIMM configuration is designed for extreme memory and processor overclocking. The motherboard is paired with the Intel Core i9-13900K
processor, and the memory is Gigabyte’s own AORUS DDR5-8333 module with the serial number “ARS32G83D5”.
In order to achieve ultra-high memory frequency, LN2 was used in this overclocking without accident, and a single DDR5 memory was overclocked to 11316MHz, and the timing was 64-127-127-127-127-127-2. However, it is not yet clear what the voltage of the memory is. The DDR5 overclocking results of Gigabyte and HiCookie have been verified by Hwbot
Although DDR5 memory overclocking manufacturers are chasing after each other, it is not easy for users to buy high-frequency DDR5 memory. Most of the products are concentrated in the range of DDR5-4800 to DDR5-6000. The higher frequency DDR5 memory is still relatively high in price and requires the support of the processor and motherboard. Players may soon see the sales of DDR5 memory kits above 8000MHz on the consumer side. As DDR5 products become more mature and widely used, driven by Intel and AMD, the final price will still drop.
