G.SKILL, the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is very thrilled to announce a new world record for the fastest memory frequency at DDR4-6016.8 MHz, being the first ever to break through the DDR4-6000 barrier.

This milestone is set by the Taiwanese professional overclocker, TopPC, using G.SKILL DDR4 Trident Z Royal memory on the latest MSI MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC motherboard and Intel Core i9-9900K processor.

Just 3 short months after the world record DDR4-5886MHz set by Toppc at the G.SKILL Computex booth in June, Toppc has once again set a new world record for memory frequency speed and is the first to push DDR4 memory to an astonishing 6 GHz. The validation links for this major milestone can be found in the following CPU-Z validation link and HWBot website screenshot below (validation).

"Achieving DDR4-6000MHz has been our goal for quite some time, and we are extremely excited to be able to achieve this major milestone together with MSI," says Tequila Huang, Corporate Vice President at G.SKILL. "In cooperating with MSI, we see the tremendous effort put forth by both parties in order to push memory speed to new frontiers and make this world record a reality. We hope to continue working with strong teams like MSI to push DDR4 memory even further into new heights and achieve more milestones together."

Just to bad it requires liquid nitrogen to run. What do you say?

Pointless unless it can run stable for everyday use.

I feel so outdated hearing this. I'm still using DDR3-2400mhz ram.

Most even newer games I play still run easily over 80+fps.

i hope they will be able to bring a product to market that is as fast without the need for extreme cooling at some point in the near future.

Usually translates to better speeds for us too. RAM speed for commercial sale are up 4233 or so these days, aren't they?

Something like that. However, Samsung B-Die is at end of life. So, not sure what speeds we can expect with A-Die. Also, we will be transitioning to DDR5 soon and speeds will get silly.

Yes, there is E-Die, D-Die, but they are all inferior to B-Die and are not known for high OC.

I've heard E-die reaches decent speed as well.
