G.Skill already had an impressive showcase for the Z490 and Intel 10th Gen launch yesterday, delivering 5000MHz memory kits. It turns out that with some additional overclocking, even greater heights can be achieved, as G.Skill Trident Z Royal memory has been used to reach record speeds of 6666MHz.
Paired with an ASUS ROG Maximus XII APEX motherboard and an Intel Core i9-10900K processor, overclocker ‘BIANBAO’ was able to set the record, which you can see being obtained in the video below:
Of course, extreme overclocking was used to reach this speed, so liquid nitrogen was used for cooling. It isn’t a speed regular consumers will be able to hit for quite some time, but it is always interesting to see what hardware can achieve when pushed to the absolute limits.
If you are looking for high-speed memory that you can actually use in a personal rig, then you may want to check out G.Skill’s new 5GHz DDR4 memory kits, which we reported on HERE.
KitGuru Says: G.Skill breaks more memory speed records, fuelling competition amongst the overclocking community. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to break this one.
