XPG claims to be first to overclock DDR5 RAM to over 8,000MT/s

XPG has announced that it is the first OEM to get its DDR5 RAM to reach a speed of over 8,000 megatransfers per second (MT/s). The company claims to have achieved this feat using memory with a default clock of 4,800MT/s. The RAM in question is to be launched later in 2021.

ADATA pitches its XPG hardware brand at gamers and tech fans in general. It is slated to launch a line of cutting-edge DDR5 RAM soon, and has accordingly dropped a hint as to what this form of PC memory can do. This, according to the OEM, involves overclocking it to apparently staggering heights.

This feat has been accomplished at XPG's dedicated Overclocking Lab, and has resulted in claims of speeds of up to 8,118MT/s, in DRAM rated for a base clock of 4,800MT/s. The lab has reported reaching this novel max clock once, alongside a second attempt that brought the speed up to nearly the same figure again (8,104MT/s).

XPG has supplied CPU-Z results to back up their assertions, which also serves to document that ADATA RAM of the DDR5 standard was used to achieve these scores. XPG characterizes the results as a "record-breaking milestone", which, as it has already hinted at new sticks with a maximum possible clock of 12,600MT/s, is slightly odd.

XPG will finally debut its DDR5 RAM in October 2021; however, whether its end-users will be able to replicate this fresh ground in overclocking once it ships remains to be seen. Nevertheless, this has been an innovative way to showcase the base clock in this upcoming memory products, which is fairly impressive as an upgrade in itself.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
