What simply occurred? Kovan Yang, a member of the MSI OC Crew, has simply set a brand new DDR4 world document utilizing HyperX Predator reminiscence and the brand new MSI MEG Z590I Unify motherboard. Utilizing liquid nitrogen, Kovan pushed the only HyperX Predator DDR4 module to 7,156 MHz, beating the earlier document of seven,110 MHz.
The document entry posted on HWBOT and verified on CPU-Z Validator exhibits Kovan was solely utilizing an 8GB HyperX Predator DDR4-4600 module. Different system specs embrace the brand new MSI Z590I Unify and the just-released Intel Core i9-11900Ok downclocked to 1,490.85 MHz.
For those who assume the 3578.2 Mhz velocity displayed within the entry is a bit off, that’s as a result of DDR4, because the identify suggests, doubles the info charge. To acquire the right worth, it’s important to multiply it by 2, thus the 7,156 MHz.
Kovan needed to lose timings to 58-63-63-63-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tCR) to hit such excessive frequency on a single module. The voltage at which the reminiscence was set is unknown, nevertheless it ought to have been above the XMP profiles values set at as much as 1.5V.
In comparison with the DDR4 normal velocity of 2400 MHz, the document is sort of triple. Contemplating DDR5 normal velocity is set at 4800 MHz, one may solely think about that the subsequent era of DDR reminiscence could be pushed so far as 14000 Mhz.
On one other notice, the overclocker ‘ROG-Fisher’ has lately pushed the Core i9-11900Ok to 7GHz. Since then, different overclockers have had the prospect to tinker with it. The present record-holder is Hicookie, reaching simply over 7.3GHz utilizing a Gigabyte Aorus Tachyon motherboard.
