G.SKILL has achived an unprecedented DDR4-5000MHz memory in dual-channels.
This breakthrough is the world's first instance of two DDR4 RGB memory modules breaking the DDR4-5000MHz barrier on just air cooling, when considering that this world-record class speed was only achievable under extreme liquid nitrogen cooling just two years ago. The record was achieved with the high performance Samsung DDR4 B-die ICs running on the MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and the Intel Core i7-8700K processor.
Shown in the screenshot below, on a system with the MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel i7-8700K processor, CPU-Z displays a DDR4-4700MHz Trident Z RGB dual-channel memory kit being overclocked 300MHz past its original rated speed to reach DDR4-5000MHz.
Despite the encouraging results, G.SKILL said that the DDR4-5000MHz memory kits aren't yet ready to hit retail stores.
