G.Skill Trident Z5 DDR5 memory sets new world record at 9560 Mbps

Overclockers just keep breaking the DDR5 memory frequency world record. As of now, Lupin_No_Musume is the record holder for the fastest DDR5 memory, scoring a whopping 9,560 Mbps using a single G.Skill Trident Z5 DDR5 module under LN2 cooling.

The new DDR5 memory world record entry shared by Buildzoid suggests overclockers still have plenty of room to push frequencies even higher. Just two weeks ago, the same individual set the highest DDR5 frequency record at 8,888MHz. It shouldn't take long before overclockers can break the 10,000MHz mark at this pace.

To achieve the new world record using a 16GB G.Skill Trident Z5 DDR5 memory module (originally DDR5-6000 CL40), the overclocker used an Asus Z690 Apex motherboard and an Intel Core i9-12900K.

As expected, liquid nitrogen cooling was used to keep temperatures in check. With this setup, the memory was pushed to 9,560 Mbps with CL127-120-120-120-127-2 timings.

It's too soon to know if we will ever get this speed using standard cooling methods, but we do know that faster DDR5 memory modules are on the way, and we should expect continued speed improvements in the years ahead.

KitGuru says: How long do you think it will take for overclockers to reach DDR5-10000 speeds?
