G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is excited to announce that 13 overclocking records from various benchmark categories were broken during Computex 2018, all using G.SKILL DDR4 memory kits built with high performance Samsung 8Gb components with the latest Intel processors and performance motherboards.

A new memory frequency world record was set this week at the G.SKILL Computex booth by Toppc, a renowned professional extreme overclocker, reaching DDR4-5543MHz using Trident Z RGB memory on a MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel Core i7-8700K processor. On the same day, another pro extreme overclocker named Kovan Yang overclocked the Trident Z RGB memory to a whopping DDR4-5541.4MHz, reaching the second spot on the fastest memory frequency rankings, with an MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel Core i7-7740X processor. This marks the first time that the top two memory frequency records are set on two different chipset platforms.



Throughout Computex week, 13 overclocking records have been achieved at the G.SKILL booth. Among them, the most notable are the memory frequency world record at DDR4-5543MHz and the CPU frequency record at 7409.03MHz. For a complete list of the overclocking records, please refer to the list below.



"Computex has always been one of the most important annual events for performance PC hardware manufacturers and worldwide overclocking community. It's an important occasion where we gather together and break the performance limits with the latest hardware," says Tequila Huang, Corporate Vice President of G.SKILL International. "We are proud to be part of it and to provide our extreme DDR4 memory for the overclockers to demonstrate the extreme limits of the latest technology."

When can we have standard air cooled CPU@5Ghz - ALL Cores and no cooled RAM@5Ghz ?
Maybe by the time DDR5 is here?

Intel Cannon Lake 10nm process should do it, whenever they solve their yield problems (now delayed another year?)

Its not like 5 Ghz is some sort of magic bullet. In fact, this is already comfortably into the region of diminishing returns in perf/watt and absolute performance. All its good for is some weird form of epeen.

No, but it's a psychologically satisfying number. I remember this issue with my old Athlon64 x2 5200+. I could hit 2950 max... couldn't get 3000 stable no matter what I did.

Exactly. Hertz rating means nothing. A totally new architecture can provide the same performance at 2.0GHz than an old architecture at 5GHz. (Core vs. P4)
