G.SKILL Tops Fastest DDR4 Frequency Record Once Again at 4355MHz

G.SKILL International Co. Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid state storage, is thrilled to announce a new record for fastest DDR4 memory frequency, set at 4355 MHz.

The record was set with G.SKILL's extreme performance Ripjaws 4 series DDR4 memory on the ASUS Rampage V Extreme motherboard and Intel i7-5960X processor under extreme cooling with liquid nitrogen. Check out the CPU-Z record validation here.
In addition to this new DDR4 frequency record, G.SKILL memory kits have also been used to set a total of 9 world records in January 2015 (source). TridentX series memory and 3 world records set with the G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series memory, this marks a great start to the year or 2015.

G.SKILL just wont say no to not holding the drr4 world record

Still single channel, but at least all 8 cores/threads activated.

World record for the screenshot only or this is a usable frequency?

its stable but not really usable in any practical since so yeah just for the screen shot

I want to see 7Ghz like the GDDR5 has. For mainstream ;)
GDDR5 is quad pumped, 7"Ghz" is the effective rate.
DDR is double data rate, 4355"MHz" is the effective rate.

The frequency of this ram is higher than GDDR5 @ "7Ghz"

This is just hype for the technically challenged.

Pretty much print screen shot before the big blue screen :D At least they managed to save it... that load the CPU 5% before the blue screen :D

Do they Nitrogen to cool the CPU and the RAM or just the CPU ?

Styupid assholes everywhere.

Of course, it is pointless from practical advantage point. It is useful only for those who did it but anyways for all the others it has next to zero meaning.

Misspelling stupid when calling other people stupid is........funny.

It is odd they used LN² on the RAM with 1.6v, I've run DDR4 up to 1.85v on air for brief runs and they weren't very hot.
Ln2 allows more frequency with less voltage..
For instance AMD chip only does 4.4 Ghz with 1.58v on air..won't go any further..
Add ln2...chip will do 4.4 with less voltage and go further

I'm still wondering where this kind of ram speed would ever come into use....

not everything has cold scaling, amd have done for years and quite a lot too while intel it has a much lessened effect.

i do agree that it could be the reason why he has been able to hit those speeds on such low voltage but as of yet i have not seen anything to indicate how much cold scales with ddr4 if at all.

the timing is quite high but high frequency can help out for multitasking especially for running several monitors to full potential.

My AMD chip does 4.4ghz on 1.39v on air... give it 1.5v it'll do 5ghz on air...

Give it ln2 and 1.5v and it might do 6 ghz ;)

What a scary thought, considering it's only 3.5ghz stock that's still some going! :)

And this is why I love, and will only buy G.Skill memory. Great overclockers, great product. Great support.

Somebody's gotta push this stuff to the limit.
It seems you are not the adventurous type.
It's also how weaknesses are exposed and innovation happens.

How is it pointless?


Its proof of how high DDR4 can go as they refine the manufacturing process, for normal use.


Look at DDR3 - started out at 1066Mhz, stopped officially at 1600Mhz - yet 2400Mhz stuff is cheap and easily bought on the market.


Where will DDR4 stop, once they get the kinks ironed out and try to duplicate these results and speeds under normal use?
