The impressive overclock mark – set by “Toppc” of MSI – was achieved using a single 4GB HyperX Predator 3333MHz DDR4 module on MSI’s new X99S XPOWER AC motherboard.
“In addition to having the highest frequency, 10 out of the top 20 memory clock records were achieved using HyperX Predator DDR4 memory,” a HyperX rep noted in a press release.
“8 of those records were set at the recent HyperX OC Takeover (HOT) World Finals event during 2015 International CES, where the world’s top overclockers gathered to compete for $15,000 (USD) in prize money.”
Commenting on the above news, Loren Shalinsky, a Strategic Development Director at Rambus, said that DDR4 is ramping up in several important spaces, including servers and higher-end gaming systems for enthusiasts.
“As DDR4 adoption accelerates, the cost of DDR4 will steadily decrease, ultimately reaching price parity with DDR3,” he added. “DDR4 will then become the de-facto choice for consumer products such as set-top boxes, digital TVs, laptops and desktop PCs.”
