On September 10th, RAM maker G.Talent proudly proclaimed that not only had they just set a new globe record for the quickest RAM frequency, but that they had been also the initial ones to go more than the six.0GHz mark (6016.8MHz, if you want the precise quantity, or 6016.8MT/s, if you want to be 100% appropriate in your terminology). Their victory has been quite brief-lived, although, as Vital have now gone and set one more brand-new record of 6054.4MT/s.
The outcome was posted more than on HWBOT on Friday October 25th by overclocking group OGS, who are primarily based in Greece, which was later validated by CPU-Z. They utilised Crucial’s Ballistix Elite DDR4 RAM to set the record, and paired with an AMD Ryzen five 3600X processor and an Asus Crosshair VIII Effect motherboard, they managed to get each and every 8GB stick operating at an impressive 3027.2MHz apiece.
That could sound like a pretty modest setup, but just take a appear at the mad setup they had to employ in order to attain that type of ridiculous speed (see under). Unless you also can be bothered to stand more than your Computer pouring liquid nitrogen more than all the things consistently, do not count on your Ballistix Elite RAM to hit that type of frequency any time quickly.
The particular person I really feel most sorry for, although, is overclocker Bianbao from Taiwan. He was really the initial particular person to use Crucial’s Ballistix Elite RAM to beat G.Skill’s earlier record, hitting 3012.2MT/s on October 24th, according to HWBOT. That is just a day just before OGS swooped in with an even more quickly record, and to make matters even worse, they did it utilizing the very same elements, also – a Ryzen five 3600X and an Asus Crosshair VIII Effect mobo. What are the probabilities?
To be fair, Bianbao’s work looked as although he’d just excavated his Computer from getting in deep freeze (see under), which is arguably even much more ridiculous than OGS’ setup.
How lengthy will OGS be capable to hold onto their overclocking crown? Who knows. Possibly not really lengthy if Bianbao managed to beat G.Skill’s earlier record in just two weeks flat, and in all probability even much less than that offered how they themselves beat Bianbao’s record in actually a single day.
What ever takes place, although, I will continue to stay completely delighted with my bog regular Corsair Vengeance LED RAM, which is presently clocked at a really pedestrian 2133MHz. Lengthy may perhaps it reign.
