Had you asked me last year if I DDR4 RAM had a chance of hitting a speed as fast as 7GHz before DDR5 entered the mainstream market, I would have said probably not. At the time, overclockers and memory makers were still in a protracted race to make it to 6GHz. G.Skill won that race in September, and now eight months later, it owns a new memory frequency record at DDR4-6666. Now I’d be surprised if it didn’t hit 7GHz by the end of the year.

Intel’s Z490 platform for Comet Lake gets an assist trophy, as does Asus—the record RAM frequency was achieved in an Asus ROG Maximus XII Apex motherboard paired with a 10th generation Core i9 10900K processor.
