G.SKILL has announced that a new overclocking world record for fastest memory frequency has been achieved with one of its latest premium memory products.

As detailed on the CPU-Z validation site and a press release shared by the company, an overclocker by the name of lupin_no_musume was able to overclock G.SKILL’s Trident Z5 DDR5 memory to the incredible speed of 8888 MHz under 88-88-88-88-127-2 timings. A video of the feat, which was accomplished with an ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex motherboard and 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900K processor, can be viewed below.

“We are very excited to collaborate with the ASUS ROG team to break the DDR5 frequency world record at DDR5-8888 with our best-in-class hardware,” said Tequila Huang, Corporate Vice President of G.SKILL International.

“This demonstrates the unparalleled overclocking potential of DDR5, and we will continue to dedicate effort into developing faster DDR5 memory for overclockers and PC enthusiasts.”

The previous world record for fastest memory frequency was achieved by overclocker hocayu, who took G.SKILL’s Trident Z5 DDR5 memory to a similarly impressive 8704 MHz. A 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700KF processor and ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex motherboard were used for that achievement.
