The new Intel Alder Lake CPU platform will launch in the coming weeks with support for both DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0, with ADATA now teasing the overclocking side of its DDR5 XPG Gaming RAM. ADATA has pushed its DDR5-4800 memory up to DDR5-8118 (CL50-50-50-160-210-2T) while DDR5-6800 has been pushed up to DDR5-8104 (CL52-52-52-96 -148-2T).
ADATA explained, “XPG, a rapidly growing supplier of systems, components and peripherals to gamers, esports professionals and tech enthusiasts, today announces that its XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) has overclocked its next DDR5 memory module at a frequency of 8,118 MT / s. XPG is the first DRAM vendor to take this step with a memory module. This achievement highlights XPG’s know-how and expertise in pushing memory modules to their full potential. The record milestone was reached with a memory module with an original clock speed of 4800 MT / s “.
ADATA continued, “The XOCL is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of memory performance and was the first such installation among DRAM manufacturers when it was created in 2018. XPG will unveil a line of DDR5 memory modules for gamers, PC enthusiasts, overclockers, and others in October of this year “.
We’ll see ADATA launch its new DDR5 memory in the coming months, after Intel rolls out its new Alder Lake platform.
