Asus and the Korean extreme overclocker “lupin_no_musume” have created liquid nitrogen (LN2) on DDR5 memory cards that were cooled to minus 196°C with 10550 MMT/s or DDR5-10550 and thus set a new world record for DDR5 overclocking.
DDR5-10550 CL127-120-120-120-127 at -196°C
Based on the current Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Apex, which is particularly suitable for main memory overclocking due to the special architecture of “only” two DIMM slots, and Intel Core i9-12900K (tested), a well-known overclocking program has successfully created a 16G memory chip Unknown bytes, which were intended to work with DDR5-4800, for record-breaking speed. Result: DDR5-10550 CL127.
- Storage group: unknown
- Intel Core i9-12900K mit 4 x 3.7 GHz
- 1 x 16GB DDR5-4800 CL38 @ DDR5-10550 CL127
- latency from 127-120-120-120-127 cycles and CR 2T
- Cooled under normal pressure at 77 K (-196 °C) by LN2
- LN2 refrigerant solution from Beats Power International
World Record Verified with CPU-Z System Tool in version 2.01 and CPU-Z Validator On Windows 10 Enterprise Edition. The Korean extreme warrior announced the new DDR5 world record on his YouTube channel and also made similar impressions of the record attempt.
Asus MSI and Gigabyte counters on the heel
With the new world record, “lupin_no_musume” and Asus immediately fended off manufacturers MSI and Gigabyte, who recently introduced the DDR5-10000, DDR5-10222 and DDR5-10500 and positioned themselves at the top of the DDR5 rating.
The current global ranking for overclocking the fastest DDR5 memory modules is now as follows:
As Germany’s top overclocking professional, CENS has been rated DDR5-8430 G.Skill Trident Z5 overclocking memory set in the top ten DDR5 memory rankings.
Asus, MSI and Gigabyte have held the top spot for months, while memory cards are dominated by G.Skill, Gigabyte, Kingston, TeamGroup and ADATA.
DDR5 is far from the limit
Assuming proper memory combinations with fast integrated circuits, there is already enough space for RAM-OC, because with the JESD79-5 standard, JEDEC already has officially specified memory up to DDR5-8400.
DDR5-12600 appears on the horizon
Manufacturers like ADATA have already promised DDR5 memory up to 12,600 MB/s at up to 1.6V when the new generation of memory is introduced. However, this fast memory will likely not be available before 2023.
“lupin_no_musume” documented the new world record with the help of a so-called “Digital Signal Analyzer” of type DSA91304A (“Infiniium”) from analysis and research firm Agilent Scientific Instruments.
