G.SKILL DDR4 Memory Achieves DDR4-5886 and 23 Overclocking Records

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is excited to announce that 23 overclocking records in various benchmark categories were broken during the Computex 2019 time frame, including the world record for the fastest memory frequency, all using G.SKILL DDR4 memory kits built with high performance Samsung 8Gb components, the latest Intel processors, and high performance motherboards.

This week at the G.SKILL Computex booth, a new world record for fastest memory frequency was set by Toppc, a renowned professional extreme overclocker, reaching an incredible DDR4-5886MHz using the Trident Z Royal memory on a MSI MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC motherboard and an Intel Core i9-9900K processor. At the end of Computex 2019, the top two results for the fastest memory frequency are set by team MSI using an identical hardware setup.
23 Overclocking Records Achieved
During the Computex 2019 time frame, 23 overclocking records were achieved. Among the records, the famous K|ngp|n overclocker broke a world record for 3DMark Time Spy with a quad-GPU setup of four EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|ngp|n graphics cards and an 18-core Intel Core i9-9980XE processor. Additionally, a CPU-based benchmark world record was set by rsannino under Geekbench3 - Multi Core with the ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme motherboard and a 28-core Intel Xeon W-3175X processor, achieving an astounding score of 135527. This year, a vast majority of records were achieved with the ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard and high-end, high core-count Intel processors, such as the 16-core i9-9960X and 18-core i9-9980XE processors, demonstrating the performance and efficiency of these processors.

closing in on 6ghz ddr4, seems promising for ddr5... maybe 4500mhz ddr5 will be the standard like 3200 is now.

I highly doubt the jump will be anywhere close to 4500 MHz. MAYBE 4000, but that seems stretching it. Look at the base speed differences from DDR2-3... 3-4 and see how little their base spec changed.

DDR4 is 2133 spec, mind you. They surely aren't doubling it.

........though I suppose by 'standard' you meant a sweetspot for price and performance? That is a bit different than a standard, but I get you.

Wow, a 9700K with a Z170 board. They went all out to get that score!

The Z170M OCF is still one of the best 1151 boards out there. :D The only thing it struggles with is very high mem freq using A2 dimm's which is why you don't see it breaking any mem freq record's. :p

....or did I miss something? haha

Many of the smaller ITX boards have higher memory speed support and are better than most ATX size boards.

That said, I still didn't see where it was mentioned, but is listed there. But that is the reason... the CPU doesn't matter so much as does its IMC. The goal here is to find one with a great IMC for pushing those clocks.

DDR3 spec was 1066MHz, DDR2 was 400MHz... of course it's going to be at least 4266MHz, Hynix already has preproduction DDR5 at 6400MHz!

The CPU matters quite a bit actually. Non-K/X SKUs, by default, have shittier IMCs. It's part of the reason why they aren't K/Xs(and/or are Pentiums/Celerons).

I thought DDR2 was 400+(800 ddr), ddr3 was 800+(1600 ddr), and ddr4 is 1066+(2133 ddr)...

It doesnt matter. We need to reduce latencies/CAS first. Still remember when we run DDR3 2400mhz 8-8-8-21. Better than a lot of DDR4 configurations people have at home, apart from power consumption of course

3200 DDR4 mostly likely is 6400 DDR5 ;) since it doubles everything from previous gen. ;)

You still don't understand how CAS relates to RAM Speeds.
DDR 400 CAS3 = DDR2 800 CAS6 = DDR3 1600 CAS 12 = DDR4 3200 CAS 24

But nowadays you can find DDR4 3200 at CAS 16 or even lower, so yeah, the performance of RAM modules had increased substantially over the years not only due to their speed.

Actually most coffee lake chips have very good IMC's compared to the previous gens, a Pentium's IMC can be just as good or better then a 9900K's, it still all just comes down to luck of the draw.

Though it all means squat if your not using the right board and memory for the job.

I think 6400 MHz DDR5 is doable, also notice how they got 3T command rate working for that record frequency. Haven’t seen 3T work in a long time.

That’s not how latency works... it is 2000/(ram speed)*CAS latency. DDR4 can run really low timings if given the same voltage DDR3 is given, however, most people don’t run high voltages just to run relatively low ram speeds with tight timings.

DDR2-800
DDR3-1600
DDR4-3200
DDR5-6400
Those are common standards for cpu compatibility (DDR5 is predicted 6400)

DDR5 isn't going to be like DDR4; people were reluctant to switch when DDR4 came out. DDR5 is going to wipe the floor with DDR4. What is enthusiast grade now is going to become baseline (HELL, what is an LN2 overclock now will eventually become baseline), and once again at a lower voltage.

As soon as DDR5 becomes available I'm building a new PC.
