With the launch of Intel’s Ivy Bridge-E architecture, memory overclocking records have been falling. The latest is G.Skill’s achievement of an incredible speed of DDR3-4072.
Hitting ultra high memory frequencies with Intel’s latest Haswell and Ivy Bridge-E processors seems to be easier than it used to be and there’s no better example of this than G.Skill’s latest achievement. Hitting 4GHz with a single channel has been accomplished in the past but this time around, a G.Skill Trident-X 16GB kit hit 4072MHz….while in quad channel mode. That’s a new world record and likely just the beginning of what these high-end kits can reach.
