JEDEC’s standard for DDR5 memory sets its clock speed at 4800 MT/s. Compared to what DDR4 offers, that’s already a pretty decent upgrade. However, like DDR4 memory, the modules can be pushed way beyond the JEDEC standard through overclocking. XPG did just that, pushing a DDR5 memory module to over 8100 MT/s.
XPG, Adata’s gaming brand, currently holds the record for achieving the highest DDR5 memory frequency. XPG Overclocking Lab was able to push an XPG DDR5 module over 8100 MT/s two times. In the first result, XPG clocked the DDR5 module at 8,118MT/s frequency with 50-50-50-160-210 timings.
On the second successful overclock, the clock speed was down to 8104MT/s, but timings improved to 52-52-52-96-148. It’s unclear which module was used, but XPG claims its stock clock was set at 4800MT/s.
In the announcement, XPG also stated that it will launch a range of DDR5 memory modules for all types of users, including gamers, PC enthusiasts, overclockers, and more. XPG’s lineup of DDR5 memory modules will be available later this month.

KitGuru says: Early overclocking results for DDR5 memory continue to look promising, but things are only going to improve with time as DDR5 matures and more people adopt it.
