We’ve been seeing a number of extreme records being made with DDR4 RAM lately, but it appears that overclockers aren’t even close to pushing modern memories to their absolute limits yet. An enthusiast from China, BABY-J, has managed to score a new memory frequency record by breaking the 7 GHz barrier with Crucial’s Ballistix MAX DDR-4000 RAM. The previous record was set by bianbao XE, who secured a devilish 6,666 MHz in August.
BABY-J achieved the new world record with an AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G “Renoir” processor, MSI MEG B550 UNIFY-X motherboard, and, of course, some LN2. It’ll be interesting to see what overclockers do with the next generation of memory, DDR5, which provides double the bandwidth (up to 6.4 Gbps).
