Gigabyte are reporting that they have set a new memory overclocking record using a Z97 SOC Force LN2 motherboard and Kingston HyperX Predator RAM. The first attempt with this combo during a Computex competition yielded a score of 2.28 GHz 4560 MT/s but wasn’t accepted for some reason. That’s where Gigabyte’s overclocking duo of HiCookie and Sofos1990 stepped in to attempt it themselves, with an HWBot.org representative in attendance. To make sure results were accurate, they connected an oscilloscope to the memory. There should be no doubt that this score is legit:
So there you have it, a new DDR3 overclocking record of 2.31 GHz (Gigabyte are calling this 4.62 GHz but that’s not really accurate) 4620 MT/s. This is absolutely not something that you can use to do anything useful, but it’s still an impressive engineering feat.
