As technological advances occur for NAND chips, we continue to see much higher frequency speeds and world records.
The Chinese overclocker baby-j has set a new world record on the RAM frequency side. While Crucial’s Ballistix Max DDR4-4000 memory was preferred in the overclocking process, liquid nitrogen (LN2) was helped. In the end, let us state that the world record was broken with a high frequency of 7.004.2 MHz.
Considering that the memory is on sale with the 4000 MHz tags, there is a 75% speed increase after this overclock. On the other hand, Crucial’s Ballistix Max branded memory has become frequently preferred by overclockers. Because DDR4-6666 levels were seen in a previous record.
We already knew that Ryzen 5000G APUs have a powerful memory controller, and many tests have featured these chips. Again, in this system, Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G and MSI’s high-end motherboard MEG B550 Unify-X model are used.
As you know, Crucial is a sub-brand of Micron. Therefore, Micron’s B-die integrated circuits (IC) are used in the memory we mentioned. In the meantime, let’s underline that the latency values vary greatly when overclocking the RAM. During this period when 7.000 MHz levels were seen, the memory reached a latency value of 22-26-26-46 (1T).
Finally, let’s add that we expect DDR5 RAMs, which are being used on the server-side and will reach the end consumer in the coming years, to reach up to 8.400 MHz as standard. In this case, we will be able to reach high frequencies without the need for liquid nitrogen and painstaking processes.
