Record overclocking of DDR5 RAM - 8000MHz on Intel Z690 . platform

Record overclocking of DDR5 RAM – 8000MHz on Intel Z690 . platform

Wondering how much to overclock your DDR5 RAM? The first unofficial results of overclocking have already appeared on the web.

The Intel LGA 1700 platform introduces not only new processors – Alder Lake, but also support for new memory – DDR5 RAM. It is true that we will have to wait a while for the official premiere of the device, but some already have access to it and check the possibility of overclocking.

DDR5 RAM Overclocking Record

A REHWK user (you may know it from previous hardware leaks) posted a screenshot on his Twitter showing one of the first results of DDR5 memory overclocking on the new Intel platform.

We know that the configuration used included an Intel Core i9-12900K processor (in Engineering – ES), a Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Tachyon motherboard, and one 16GB Gigabyte Aorus memory module (GP-ARS32G62D5) originally clocked at 6400MHz with 42 -42- timings 42-84.


The new DDR5 modules operate in dual-channel mode with just one unit

A mysterious overclocker managed to squeeze out of memory equal to 8000MHz with a latency of CL50-50-50-100 (the memory controller of the processor worked at 4 times slower – 2000MHz). However, it is not known if the result is stable, or if it requires additional improvements (such as unconventional liquid nitrogen cooling as indicated by the motherboard – this is a model intended for severe overclocking).

There is a record, but we hope for more

Let’s be honest – the 8000MHz clock speed on DDR5 memory isn’t a particularly great result. Existing DDR4 RAM modules can exceed 7000MHz with maximum overclocking, and new DDR5 cubes are supposed to reach 12600MHz. Anyway, we’re dealing with a log (and pre-release post!). However, we are waiting for the following results, which are likely to begin to appear after the official launch of the new “blue” platform.
