Really high frequencies here and within a couple of months overclockers will be able to start playing with the first DDR5 modules. Memory makers are currently testing the first DDR5 modules, these will be launched later this year alongside Intel's Alder Lake-S platform. The latter is expected towards the end of this year.
HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc. and brand leader in gaming and esports, today announced that HyperX Predator DDR4 memory was used to set a new overclocking world record for the fastest DDR4 memory frequency at 7200MHz. The world record for highest frequency was set by the MSI OC Team in Taiwan using a HyperX 4600MHz Predator DDR4 8G module (part number: HX446C19PB3K2/16) on an MSI MEG Z590 UNIFY-X motherboard using an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-11900KF @ 3.50GHz CPU. The record breaking frequency is posted on HWBOT, the site for PC enthusiasts looking for news, tips and information on overclocking, benchmarks and competitions.

“HyperX is thrilled to be part of this breakthrough in DDR4 overclocking history, with HyperX Predator memory used to set two world records within the past month,” said Kristy Ernt, DRAM business manager, HyperX. “Our HyperX engineers continue to focus on improving high-speed yields to get faster products in the hands of our customers and push previously unattainable performance records.”
HyperX Predator DDR4 was used to set the world record at 7156MHz last month. HyperX Predator DDR4 offers high-performance memory paired with a bold and aggressive style. The frequencies available for purchase have expanded to 4800MHz along with latencies from CL12 to CL19. HyperX memory modules are Intel® XMP-ready with certified profiles optimized for Intel’s latest chipsets, and are also compatible with many of AMD’s latest chipsets.
Available as 8GB to 32GB single modules and kits of two, four and eight with capacities of 16GB to 256GB, HyperX Predator DDR4 memory is 100 percent factory tested at speed and backed by a lifetime warranty, with free technical support and legendary reliability.
