M: YES announced that its overclocker, Kovan Yang, managed to set a new world overclocking record for DDR5 memory. For this recording, a system consisting of the processor Intel Core i9-12900KS mounted on its base plate MSI MEG Z690 UNIFY-Xone of its top-of-the-range models, associated with a single USB key Kingston’s Furious Beast (his opinion) with a capacity of 16 GB which operated at a reference frequency of 4800MHz with latencies 38-38-38 @ 1.1v.

This memory led to nothing but 100001MHzyes, with somewhat high latencies… CL72-126-126-127-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR), which was helped by limiting the number of CPU cores to 4 at a frequency of 425.68 MHz. Remember that a frequency at this speed, and even at 12000 MHz, is expected to be the future performance ceiling of these DDR5 memories when they reach maturity, yes, with much lower latencies, and at mind-blowing prices, of course.
