G.Skill and MSI are pretty proud today as overclocker Toppc enhanced his DDR4 memory overclocking score by over 98MHz, making him the first to achieve a DDR4 memory clockspeed in excess of 5GHz! The actual figure is 5002.4MHz, this was achieved using G.Skill Trident Z DDR4 memory on the MSI Z170I GAMING PRO AC motherboard.
G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, announces the world’s first DDR4 memory overclocking record to break past the mind-blowing 5GHz barrier, achieved with G.SKILL Trident Z Series DDR4 memory engineered with Samsung ICs and the MSI Z170I GAMING PRO AC motherboard. With this achievement in the official record books, the world’s top 7 memory frequency records are now dominated by G.SKILL memory.
Surpassing the 5GHz frequency speed barrier had been the ultimate aspiration of the memory overclocking community since the last year’s launch of the Intel Skylake platform. This historic milestone is finally succeeded today by the renowned Taiwanese overclocking legend, Toppc, under liquid nitrogen cooling. "We are extremely excited to achieve this great milestone together with Samsung components and MSI motherboard,” says Tequila Huang, Corporate Vice President and Director of R&D, G.SKILL International. “We will continually push hardware performance to the limits and provide enthusiasts with even more advanced products."
