Memory bandwidth is hitting crazy number lately, and today we have one result that is impressive because its set on the current DDR4 standard. Anew DDR4 memory overclock record was set, and it was on an AMD Renoir system.

The information comes from an HWBot entry, which proves that AMD seems to be having the upper hand on memory controllers right now. User Bianbao XE reported an overclock of 6,666 MHz. They did this on a single Crucial Ballistix Max stick with the default frequency of 2,666 MHz. Take a look:

The rig ran on a ROG Strix B550-I Gaming motherboard, with a mini-ITX form factor, coupled with an AMD Ryzen 7 4700GE ‘Renoir’. The system was set to underclock and overvolt the APU for the best memory performance. Memory timings were set at 30-27-27-58.

This is certainly an impressive feat. We would love to see an Intel 10th Gen system go up against it. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
