M: YES announced last Tuesday that it had reached a new overclocking world record for DDR5 RAM, but it didn’t last long, because Gigabyte has now claimed this record.

MSI has revealed that using a Intel Core i9-12900KS mounted on its base plate MSI MEG Z690 UNIFY-Xnext to a USB key Kingston’s Furious Beast (his opinion) of 16 GB of capacity, has been overclocked by 4800MHz with latencies 38-38-38 @ 1.1v reference until reaching the 100001MHz with somewhat high latencies… CL72-126-126-127-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR). Now Gigabyte has managed to break that record by a very narrow margin.

Gigabyte AORUS DDR5 overclocking record

This processor was mounted on a motherboard Tachyon Gigabyte Z690 AORUSand the RAM memory used was made in house, we are talking about some Gigabyte AORUS DDR5 @ 4800MHz of 16 GB of capacity, where thanks to overclocking it was not only possible to reach a frequency of 10022MHzbut they managed to do it with pretty decent latencies in the form of CL46-58-58-46-104-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR).

To make this possible, the processor and RAM received a liquid nitrogen bath.
