ADATA Sets New Overclocking Record with XPG SPECTRIX D80 RGB Memory Module at 5584 MT/s

ADATA Technology at CES announced that it has overclocked its XPG SPECTRIX D80 RGB DDR4 memory module to a frequency of 5584 MT/s, thus setting a new world record. The milestone was achieved with an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and MSI MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC motherboard in an LN2-cooled configuration.

This is the first time a memory frequency record has been set with a 9th Gen Intel Core i9 processor, and comes on the heels of the recent establishment of ADATA's XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) late last year. The lab is the first facility of its kind among worldwide DRAM makers and is an expansion of ADATA's continued effort towards achieving record-breaking memory speeds. This latest milestone has been published on HWBot.

To you only. To me, I would like to know what the timings where, I think this is pretty cool.

Well,

Did it bench 100% stable? I dont think anyone in their mind is working with a active LN2 installation right next to their PC when gaming.

they aren't posting this for the every day Joe for their every day computer... this is call progress, every time they set a record it is called progress. soon we will see speeds in your every day computer at those speeds without more than air cooling on it ;)

This argument has been beatin like a herd of dead horses

The FX booted all the way up to 8Ghz. Is that the same progression we see today or are we still stuck at the avg 4 to 5Ghz era?

It's not really so fantastic booting up memory speeds like that. It was proberly a single stick, and stable enough to boot, post & validate.

Great I am glad you think so.... we should just go back to only using standard air cooling and only run everything at stock clocks and don't push any limits. :rolleyes::kookoo:

I don't see why you guys react like this , Jism has a point not only you need LN2 to achieve those clocks but you also need extremely binned CPU and memory modules aswell ...... this is only usefull for marketing nothing else .

why are you both reacting like that? goes both ways.

It is cool, even if it is niche. I don't think they are showing you a world record thinking that everyone would be able to do it. not that point at all.

NASA sent men to the moon but I can't jump on a rocket and go to the moon tomorrow.

World records are set all the time and no one is thinking about the avg Joe being able to come close to that record. it is a record after all for a reason

that isnt the point... you should just buy a dell and log off forever on an enthusiast website if that's how it will be.

Cool ? Yes , Niche ? Extremely niche , Do i think they need to think to avg Joe when setting world records ? Obviously NOT ( never claimed such a thing ) .

Saying this result is useless , wich it literaly is for 100% of TPU readers ( heck i could had simply said PC users for that matter and still probably be right ) doesn't mean that we don't understand or that we don't enjoy the results , quite the opposite ! Hence my reply to you and ManofGod because calling Jism a troll simply because he expressed a valid opinion didn't seemed right to me .

But...it isnt completely useless is the point. It's completely useless to him, and the majority, but its intent isnt to wow people like that, but enthusiasts.

So, his comment can be considered trolling or flame bait. Just because he doesnt care or understand, doesnt mean it's useless.

But I will add that his comment was useless. it did nothing other than form this chain of comments that don't even relate now. thread is a train wreck, not exactly helping myself but I just see it all the time on these overclocking world record threads and think it is silly that people like him even bother to comment other than to just be a troll

People are posting 4500-5000 benches on Facebook on air cooling (!). Seems like 9900k is good for high frequency at least, need a 2DIMM board like the one in OP, Maximus XI Gene/Apex and the "officially" announced Dark.

A little off topic but do you have a review or first look or technical specs of the soon to be released Adata SE800 external USB Type-C SSD drive which apparently has read/write capability in the range of 1000MB/s. Thanks in advance.

I'm just going to wait for DDR5 and get those speeds as standard at half the power consumption :D !

*5583mbps
MT/s is millions of transfers per second. It is quite correct, and the bandwidth would GREATLY exceed 5,584 MB/s even in single channel.

ok mt/s but still its 5583 not 5584, im aware of how memory bandwidth works, ddr3 2400 wont be 2400mbps more like 30-40gb per sec in dual channel

It’s 2791.6 MHz, which would be averaged out to 2792 MHz. 2792 MHz is 5584 MT/s

Even enthusiasts like realistic numbers. I'm not putting my machine under LN2. :laugh:

People don’t have problems with top athletes running sub 10s 100m sprints (a figure unobtainable for the vast majority), Formula 1 (a career or even opportunity unobtainable for the vast majority), drag racing, NASCAR, space exploration, etc. yet always have a problem with computers being pushed to the limits. Why is this? The doings of and input from extreme overclockers push innovation just the same way they do in any other field. Why does this get flack, yet every other field is seen as acceptable? Every other example I’ve given is likely outside the scope of ANY TPU member yet you don’t see anyone complaining about it, while there are several of us that run LN2 (meaning it’s actually more accessible than the other examples) and the practice gets more hate than NVIDIA on a bad day?

People seem to have issues with the concept of seeing something on the internet they don't agree with and just ignoring it.

Except it's just to see if the computer will boot and be stable enough for a screenshot. If you want to compare LN2 to an engine, this isn't like drag racing, it's like being in the lab (engine alone,) hooked up to a dyno and a bunch of computer equipment with everything being controlled. Sure, it's neat to see what something can do when you push it to the limit in a controlled and optimal environment, but even on the track you don't have that.

Even when you're drag racing, you care about power to the wheels, not power to the crank.

At least when you’re done with LN2 you don’t need to rebuild the engine :p And there are plenty of other analogies. The largest house of cards - it can’t support any weight. That’s the first thing that comes to mind, yet nobody gives that any grief.

After LN2, you very well might end up with a dead CPU, so actually yeah, you might.
