ADATA XPG the First to Overclock DDR5 to 8,118 MT/s

XPG, a fast-growing provider of systems, components, and peripherals for Gamers, E-sports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts, today announces that its XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) has overclocked its upcoming DDR5 memory module to a frequency of 8,118 MT/s. XPG is the first DRAM provider to reach this milestone with a DDR5 memory module. This achievement highlights XPG's know-how and expertise in pushing memory modules to their full potential. The record-breaking milestone was achieved with a DDR5 memory module with a stock clock speed of 4,800 MT/s.

The XOCL is dedicated to pushing the limits of memory performance and was the first facility of its kind among DRAM makers when it was founded in 2018.
XPG will be unveiling a lineup of DDR5 memory modules for gamers, PC enthusiasts, overclockers, and others in October of this year.

From what I've been told it's one MSI and one Gigabyte board.

What is the deal with the Ranks 1R and 2R. should we be worried that the notebook memory saga could repeat.

I am only interested when it is over 9000

GeorgeManNext: 10000MT/s with CL72...
Sadly, very few people know even basic stuff about how RAM works. That being said, very few people can actually benefit from all this bandwidth, which higher clocks provide.

Gigabyte still in business after the leaks?

I hope it becomes easier to mix and match like this.

Two different kits of RAM as well...

Would be looser than 8000CL50.

Multiple ranks per channel allow the memory controller to interleave accesses so it doesn't have to wait as much. If you only have one DIMM per channel you *really* want dual rank (2R). For multiple DIMMs per channel it's less critical but more ranks is moar betterer.

I'm ready for some DDR5! it looks like the first picture has DDR5-6800 installed and the second DDR5-5200. Still a massive jump. Probably not on air though.

I like how the MB and chipset is blanked out. Like we don't already know from the leaks.

Well duh, of course the CL are high.

I started RAM overclocking with WITH DDR1, at 2-2-2-5 DDR600 (yeah, i had some sexy ram back then)
DDR4 latencies seem laughable in comparison, yet here we are

It'll be interesting to see them ramp up the MHz/MTwhatevers as high as possible, then see the latencies drop as they tune it in, in the coming years

So what is MT/s and why the change ? old style worked just fine.

MHz is incorrect unless you want to say 4059 MHz.

That's always been the correct name, we've been lazy.

Like how it's MiB/s not MB/s

MT/s is the 'effective' rate while MHz is half that on DDR.

So DDR4 3000, is really 3000MT and 1500Mhz
