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.

EVGA SR-3 DARK Will Challenge the ROG Dominus for W-3175X Supremacy

EVGA at its Computex 2019 booth showcased its flagship HEDT motherboard, the SR-3 DARK. This socket LGA3647 motherboard based on Intel C621 chipset, is purpose-built for squeezing the most out of the Xeon W-3175X 28-core HEDT processor Intel rolled out last year to challenge the Threadripper WX. The SR-3 DARK competes with only two other motherboards of its kind, the ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme, and GIGABYTE C621 Aorus Xtreme. EVGA deployed many of the innovations it introduced with the Z390 DARK that make it arguably the best LGA1151 motherboard for record-seeking overclocking.

For starters, the CPU socket is oriented sideways, just like the Z390 DARK, to position the DDR4 memory slots north and south of the socket. There's only one slot per memory channel, so you don't have to worry about multi-slot topology hindering your memory OC in any way. The CPU VRM is located east of the socket, directly next to the board's angled power inputs that include one 24-pin ATX and four 8-pin EPS inputs! There are additional inputs such as two SATA power, and one 6-pin PCIe, to stabilize the other power domains. The VRM area, along with the C621 PCH, are liquid cooled by a monoblock embedded into an aluminium heatsink. This block has a clear-acrylic top, and its coolant channel runs over the CPU VRM first, before guiding the coolant through a fin-lattice over the PCH, and then onto the outlet.

G.SKILL Announces New Hexa-Channel Massive Capacity DDR4 Memory Kits

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is exhilarated to announce new ultra-fast, ultra-high capacity Trident Z Royal DDR4 RGB memory specifications designed for use with the latest unlocked 28-core Intel Xeon W-3175X processor. Operating in hexa-channel with 6- or 12-module kit configurations, these new 6-channel Trident Z Royal memory kits can reach insane memory speeds of up to DDR4-4000 CL17-18-18-38 at 1.35V, which feature extreme performance Samsung B-die memory ICs. With fast memory speed and massive capacity, these hexa-channel memory kits are perfect for heavy-workload workstations when paired with the 28-core Xeon processor.

As computing technology improves, the amount of processed data also increases, leading to a demand for more memory channels and higher bandwidth. For the first time, this new platform introduces hexa-channel memory support to the larger consumer market, which was previously only found in server-class systems. While operating under 6-channels, the extreme performance DDR4-4000 CL17 96GB (8GBx12) memory kit reaches a blazing fast read bandwidth speed of 122GB/s - a substantial increase over currently available quad-channel platforms. See below for a screenshot of the bandwidth result from the AIDA64 memory benchmark:

ASUS Introduces new Prime X299-Deluxe II and ROG Dominus Extreme

Intel's high-end desktop platform raises the stakes with updated Intel Core X-Series processors that boast a lot more of everything, including cores, cache, bandwidth, and more. The additional processing power plows through CPU-intensive tasks, while the extra bandwidth lets you add more GPUs and NVMe SSDs to accelerate a wider range of workloads.

Anchored by the X299 platform, this upper echelon scales up to 18 cores with the new Core i9-9980XE. It's now joined by an even more exclusive chip with 28 cores and an entirely separate platform that redefines extreme desktop PCs. We have new motherboards designed to exploit the strengths of each CPU. The Prime X299-Deluxe II gives professionals and power users a flexible foundation for serious work and it is not alone, ROG engineers are also working on a new Rampage motherboard geared toward hardcore gamers and overclockers, while the ROG Dominus Extreme shows what's possible when our engineers have the freedom to go beyond traditional boundaries

Intel X599 Chipset to Drive 28-core HEDT+ Platform

The introduction of 32-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX at $1,799 has demolished the competitiveness of the similarly priced Core i9-7980XE, forcing Intel to "productize" its Skylake-X XCC (extreme core-count) silicon for the client-segment. We've already seen one or two motherboards for this platform at Computex, notably the ASUS ROG Dominus (pictured below). Intel's demo platform is reportedly powered by a GIGABYTE-made motherboard. Both these boards may have been prototypes based on Intel C629 "Lewisburg" chipset, as Intel was still mulling on whether to even launch the product.

With the 2990WX out, the fate of the client-segment cousin of the Xeon Platinum 8180 is sealed, and so is that of the C629. In its client-segment avatar, the chipset will be branded "Intel X599 Express." This chipset will support new SKUs derived from the "Skylake-X" XCC silicon (probably 24-core, 26-core, and 28-core), in the LGA3647 package. The platform features not just up to 28 cores, but also a 6-channel DDR4 memory interface, which will probably support up to 192 GB of memory on the client-platform. There's also a rumor that Intel could launch new 20-core and 22-core LGA2066 processors. Those, coupled with the 8-core LGA1151 processor, will be Intel's fig-leaf until late-2019.

ASUS ROG Dominus Pictured, Core i9 XCC Confirmed to Feature 6-channel Memory

This Tuesday at its Computex presser, Intel unveiled an unnamed 28-core/56-thread HEDT (client-segment) processor that's capable of being bench-stable at 5.00 GHz. The chip is a client-segment implementation of the Skylake XCC (extreme core count) silicon, which features 30 Mesh Interconnect "tiles," of which 28 are cores and two integrated memory controllers. The XCC silicon features a 384-bit wide (6-channel) DDR4 memory interface, and it turns out that whatever SKU Intel is planning, will require a different motherboard from your X299 board that can handle up to 18 cores and 4-channel memory. It will require a client-segment variant of the LGA3647 enterprise socket from the Purley platform. One of the first of these is the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Dominus.

Clearly bigger than ATX, in being either E-ATX or SSI form-factor, this board draws power from two 24-pin ATX, two 8-pin EPS, and three 6-pin PCIe, and has a gargantuan 16-phase VRM with two fan-heatsink blocks. Six DDR4 DIMM slots flank the socket, three on either side, each with its dedicated 64-bit wide path to the socket. The XCC silicon features a 48-lane PCI-Express gen 3.0 root complex, and so the board could feature at least two PCI-Express 3.0 x16 capable of full bandwidth, among a boat load of PCIe based storage connectivity, and onboard devices.

Update: This motherboard may have been a quick modification of the WS C621E SAGE, by removing one of its sockets, and modifying the rest of the board accordingly. Prototyping a board like that, for a company with ASUS' resources, would barely take 2-3 weeks by our estimate.
