Memory manufacturer G.Skill, in collaboration with Asus, has managed to set a new record for air-cooled DDR5 memory. Finally, DDR5-10000 with a CAS latency of 50 clock cycles was achieved for the first time, which has already been officially validated via the well-known CPU-Z checker.
G.Skill and Asus achieve DDR5-10000 with air cooling
G.Skill and Asus jointly accelerated the Trident Z5 series memory module on the Asus ROG Maximus Z790 Apex, which was powered by an Intel Core i9-13900K (test), at speeds of up to 10,000 MT/s.
The memory components (ICs) installed on the memory modules come from South Korean semiconductor manufacturer SK Hynix, as shown in the screenshot of the well-known processor tool CPU-Z.
Overall, the two manufacturers achieved three successful results with DDR5-7800, DDR5-8000, and DDR5-10000, which also shows the memory controller clock speed of the Raptor Lake series CPUs and the Z790 motherboard used with its own chassis and only shows two of the slots. DIMM.
DDR5-7800 and DDR5-8000 via Intel XMP 3.0
Memory speeds and timings achieved with Intel XMP 3.0 (tested) and manual overclocking are pretty impressive:

According to G.Skill and Asus, all outcomes can be “normal air coolingAnd without the use of liquid nitrogen (LN2), which typically cools the main memory to minus 196°C for such record attempts.
The sub-dates clearly show that the DDR5-7800 and DDR5-8000 are already heading towards production maturity, while the DDR5-10000 is still far from that state. However, the 7800 Mtps memory suite optimized for Lake Raptor will be available soon.
G.Skill also used the registry attempt to offer Intel’s new DDR5 memory clusters for the Core i 13000 series, ranging from DDR5-6800 CL34 to DDR5-7800 CL38, and depending on speed, with 2 x 16 GB or 2 x 32 GB should be offered.
