G.SKILL Trident Z5 Breaks DDR5-8704 World Record with ASUS ROG Z690 Apex

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is excited to claim yet another world record, in close partnership with the ASUS ROG motherboard team, for the fastest memory frequency of an incredible DDR5-8704. This incredible feat was achieved with the G.SKILL Trident Z5 DDR5 memory on the latest Intel Core i7-12700KF processor and ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard.

Laying claim to the world record for the fastest memory frequency with the latest DDR5 memory, G.SKILL and ASUS worked closely together to achieve an incredible DDR5-8704, using liquid nitrogen to cool the system to subzero temperatures. Solidifying DDR5 memory as the new extreme performance standard, this memory frequency world record was achieved with the new Trident Z5 RGB memory on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard. See below for a screenshot of the world record, achieved by the extreme overclocker "hocayu":
To witness the extreme overclocking in action, watch the video below.

And I thought the 12ns of DDR5 6666 cas 40 was bad.
This is 29ns...

WTH. Do they need liquid H2 to get 8Ghz out of DDR5??? Seriously??
I thought 8GHz will be the norm for performance DDR5 RAMs in the following months, just like DDR4-4Ghz....
H2, really?? /facepalm.

isn't it 8704 MT/s ? = 4352 Mh/s

4 GHz actually since it's 8704 MT/s and two transfer per clock. Reaching 4 GHz will be in the future and not really in the first generation of DDR5 chips, that's basically all that those manufacturers were saying, that in the future a 8000 MT/s module will be possible.

Geez Louise at Those clocks 127.120.120.240, now that is overclocking (By any means necessary) Like my man Malcolm X said.

They are also setting a world record of how few places are selling a supposedly launched product.

Even G.skills own website doesnt have anything higher than 5400MHz kits, despite there being several speeds over it (a number of reviewers - incl TPU - have a 6000 kit for eg)

You have a good point Only 5200 MT for sale. Interesting....

junglist724I found these too. tweakers.net/pricewatch/1764194/g-punt-skill-trident-z5-f5-7000u4040c16gx2-tz5k.html
They know more than G.Skill do!

Ive ordered a DDR4 board and kit now. Der8auer did a comparison of a few speeds and the difference was too small to be concerned about. Im sure DDR5 will take off when the next wave of kits hit, but for now its not worth it. Im going with DDR4 4000 C15 which is better than anything reviewers have used in their comparsion pieces, so should be good.

*E: Oh I see they have 6600 C36 listed too (not in stock). If that was available to buy when I was ordering I might have gone for it. But I wonder the price! My local shop has 5600 C36 listed for half a grand, so this kit could be in the region of €650+ :o Thats almost double what the good DDR4 kit cost.

I would get a DDR4 board but the only ITX board with TB4 and a decent amount of I/O is the Strix Z690-I so now I need to somehow find a DDR5 kit. Noctua's motherboard compatibility and Corsair's memory compatibility websites list a Strix Z690-I D4 with DDR4 support but it doesn't seem to exist yet.
