Gigabyte Achieves High Overclocking Record on DDR5 Memory with 11,136MT/s

An in-house overclocker at Gigabyte has set a new record for DDR5 memory, by overclocking a single DDR5 stick to 11,136MT/s. The overclock was done with a single module of Gigabyte’s Aorus-branded memory rated at DDR5-8333. The overclocker, who goes by the name HiCookie, used Gigabyte’s Z790 Aorus Tachyon motherboard, which is made for extreme overclocking and sells for $549, and an Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU. The overclock was done without any extravagant cooling, just using ambient air on an open-air test bench.

This is an impressive achievement, especially considering that DDR5 is still relatively new to the market. Adoption has been slow due to both shortages and lack of support by Intel and AMD. However, with the launch of Zen 4, which only supports DDR5, and Intel’s Raptor Lake also supporting it, DDR5 is expected to become more widely adopted. It’s exciting to see these high speeds being achieved so early in DDR5’s lifecycle.
