New record in overclocking DDR5 memory


1 min read

Recently, professional overclockers have started setting new records when it comes to DDR5 memory speeds, which go over 10,000 MHz.

After the MSI team was recently the first to set a record in overclocking DDR5 memory over 10,000 MHz, Gigabyte soon set a new record for DDR5 memory speed, which now stands at 10,022 MHz.

According to statistics from HWBot, the new record was set by a professional overclocker from Gigabyte, nicknamed HiCookie. Overclocker used an Intel Core i9-12900K processor and 16GB of DDR5-4800 Gigabyte Aorus RGB memory on the Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Tachyon motherboard for its endeavor.

HiCookie used Windows XP Professional for the operating system. As expected, the CPU and memory were cooled with liquid nitrogen (LN2) to achieve extreme speeds.


DDR5 memory, intended for consumers, is still far from reaching the mentioned speeds and currently achieves the usual speeds of 7000 MHz. However, DDR5 technology is slowly advancing and maturing, so it is expected to reach even higher speeds in the future with more advanced DDR5 platforms.
