ADATA Pushes Its XPG Gaming DDR5 Memory To 8118 Mbps Overclock
ADATA showcased overclocking capabilities of its XPG DDR5 series memory. Two DDR5 memory variants are shown and both have a stock speed of DDR5-4800 but their XMP profiles are rated at DDR5-6800 (CL46 at 1.35V) and DDR5-5200 (CL38 at 1.25V). ADATA was able to push the first kit to an impressive DDR5-8118 (CL50-50-50-160-210-2T) while the second kit was pushed to DDR5-8104 (CL52-52-52-96-148-2T).
XPG, a fast-growing provider of systems, components, and peripherals for Gamers, Esports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts, today announces that its XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) has overclocked its upcoming DDR5 memory module to a frequency of 8,118 MT/s. XPG is the first DRAM provider to reach this milestone with a memory module. This achievement highlights XPG’s know-how and expertise in pushing memory modules to their full potential. The record-breaking milestone was achieved with a memory module with a stock clock speed of 4,800 MT/s.
The XOCL is dedicated to pushing the limits of memory performance and was the first facility of its kind among DRAM makers when it was founded in 2018.
