System board manufacturers continue to push the envelope for both RAM and CPU speed in various ways. HyperX has announced that its Predator DDR4 RAM was used to obtained a new world record for overclock speed. While the feat was actually accomplished a month ago with the Predator RAM with hitting a speed of 7156MHz, the MSI OC team in Taiwan raised the barrier even more. Using the HyperX 4600MHz Predator DDR4 8G module, the MSI OC team hit an even 7200MHz speed with the RAM. This was also paired with an 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11900KF CPU at 3.5GHz that was housed in a MSI MEG Z590 UNIFY-X system board.
“HyperX is thrilled to be part of this breakthrough in DDR4 overclocking history, with HyperX Predator memory used to set two world records within the past month,” said Kristy Ernt, DRAM business manager, HyperX. “Our HyperX engineers continue to focus on improving high-speed yields to get faster products in the hands of our customers and push previously unattainable performance records.”
