G.Skill Trident Z5 DDR5 Memory Overclocked To 9560 Mbps

Extreme overclocker, “lupin_no_musume”, sets a world record by overclocking G.Skill Trident Z5 DDR5 memory to 9560 Mbps.

An entry on the HWBOT website claims yet another record to be set by G.Skill as an overclocker from Hong Kong managed to boost G.Skill DDR5 memory frequency to as high as 4779.7 MHz. The overclocking was performed on a 16GB single module of memory supporting an Intel Core i9-12900K processor.

ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard, designed exclusively to achieve extreme overclocking frequencies, was used for this purpose. Moreover, extremely high timings of 120-120-120-120-127-2 as well as liquid nitrogen cooling were ensured. The timings have been relaxed way more than those (88-88-88-88-127-2 l) used to achieve the previous record at DDR5-8888.

This new record was set just after 2 weeks of ASUS/G.Skill achieving the 8888 Mbps world record with the same motherboard, that too by the same overclocker. The previous record was achieved by the same overclocker. The APEX A690 motherboard features Intel Alder Lake-S processors. This particular case brought a Core i9-12900K processor into use.


To date, this remains the fastest validated DDR5 speed ever recorded. It looks like G.Skill is not far away from being the first one to reach the milestone of 10,000 MT/s in professional overclocking.
