Following MSI and Gigabyte, ASUS has now broken the DDR5 reminiscence overclocking world file with its prime ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard.
ASUS Achieves A Gorgeous 10552 Mbps DDR5 Reminiscence Overclock With ROG Maximus Z690 APEX Motherboard
The newest overclock was achieved by Hong Kong-based overclocker, LUPIN_NO_MUSUME, with the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard. The motherboard is designed particularly for DRAM overclocking as seen by its Twin DIMM reminiscence format. Formally, this motherboard can assist as much as DDR5-6600 speeds however overclockers are able to push DDR5 method above the designated specs.
Utilizing LN2 and an Intel Core i9-12900K clocked at 3.7 GHz (4 P-Cores enabled), the overclocker was capable of obtain a 5275.9 MHz overclock which interprets to 10,552 Mbps switch charges. It is a 2.2 occasions acquire over the JEDEC specified speeds for DDR5 reminiscence which is a minuscule 4800 Mbps vs the overclock achieved. The reminiscence clocks have been maintained at 127-120-120-120-127-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR) and only one 16 GB DIMM was used.
The DDR5 file has been smashed!💥

It’s not talked about which particular DDR5 reminiscence DIMM was used for this overclock. Producers are anticipated to push DDR5 even additional within the coming months with platforms corresponding to AMD’s AM5 & Intel Raptor Lake permitting assist for larger reminiscence frequencies and switch charges. Now we have already seen G.Ability showcasing as much as DDR5-7000 kits whereas others corresponding to ADATA, T-Drive, Aorus, TeamGroup, and Corsair are additionally engaged on even sooner modules.
You possibly can see the CPU-z validation and HWBOT listings at their respective hyperlinks and within the footage beneath:
Now you is perhaps worrying that sooner speeds will end in larger CAS latency and timings however DDR5-7000 reminiscence is reportedly operating at CL40 timings in labs so we are able to count on reminiscence kits with tighter timings prepared by the point these new platforms arrive. Moreover, DDR5 and DRAM costs, generally, are falling quickly with Micron’s CEO, Sanjay Mehrotra, confirming that the provision of PMIC and VRM for DDR5 modules has elevated considerably over the previous couple of months & which might result in an extra drop in costs. At present, DDR5 reminiscence is priced round 40-50% larger than DDR4 reminiscence.
