As reported earlier, MSI X299 and Intel Core i7-7440K joined hands together to provide all the necessary backup to “G.Skill” which has managed to achieve an all-time high benchmark. A world record of achieving 5,500MHz using the G.Skill’s DDR4 memory has been set by the last year’s champion, Toppc.
G.Skill’s Previous Record
G.Skill has been in the record-setting game since a long period of time. Last year, famous overclocker Toppc somehow managed to achieve the figure of 5,000 MHz at the Computex 2016. This time, company being aware of Toppc’s capabilities hired him again to make them proud.
To achieve this high figure, Toppc used MSI’s X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard and Intel’s Core i7-7740X Kaby Lake-X CPU. The memory kit which was able to hit the 5,500MHz figure was actually G.Skill’s Trident Z DDR4 based on Samsung 8Gb ICs and the kit was running at CL14-14-14 latency. Corporate Vice President of G.Skill, Mr. Tequila Huang says that they were confident enough to achieve this figure since the day their hardware touched the 5,000 mark. The company had been planning the new world record since last year’s unbelievable performance.
