The arrival of DDR5 RAM could also be close by with Intel’s Alder Lake and AMD’s Zen 4 simply across the nook, but the fourth technology nonetheless has rather a lot to present. While the bottom DDR5 clock can be a reasonably respectable 4800MHz, the MSI OC staff managed to push an 8GB stick of HyperX Predator DDR4 RAM with a inventory clock of 4600MHz all the way in which as much as 7156MHz, taking the earlier HWbot file of 7109MHz to turn into the quickest set of DDR4 RAM we’ve ever seen. Eat your coronary heart out, DDR5.

The feat was achieved with an Intel Core i9 11900KF processor alongside MSI’s MEG Z590I Unify motherboard. No passive cooling for the RAM right here, although, so don’t anticipate to overclock the reminiscence inside your personal PC as much as an analogous degree – identical to in the current i9 11900K overclock, liquid nitrogen was used. Sadly, you’ll want to attend until DDR5 lands on cabinets to hit wherever close to these speeds.

This overclock reveals DDR4 is in no way antiquated, which is nice contemplating adoption of DDR5 will possible be fairly sluggish to start with.

If you need excessive frequency DDR4 reminiscence that doesn’t want overclocking, G.Skill recently released a set with a inventory clock of 5333MHz, making it the quickest out-of-the-box RAM presently in the marketplace. We suggest you be fast together with your improve, although, as Micron warns that RAM prices will see a rise all through this 12 months.
