Kingston HyperX and MSI Set 7200MHz DDR4 Overclocking World Record

Kingston has once again been involved in setting another overclocking world record as the MSI OC Team in Taiwan has been to achieve the fastest DDR4 memory frequency of 7200MHz using the HyperX Predator DDR4 RAM.

The MSI OC Team was able to achieve the world record twice this month using the HyperX Predator 4600MHz DDR4 8GB module (part number: HX446C19PB3K2/16) on the MSI MEG Z590 UNIFY-X motherboard paired with an 11th generation Intel Core i9-11900KF CPU at 3.5GHz. At the time of release, the record-breaking frequency still holds its top place on the HWBOT website. The same HyperX Predator DDR4 was also used to set the previous world record of 7156MHz last month.

“We are thrilled to be part of the breakthrough in DDR4 overclocking history, with HyperX Predator memory used to set two world records within the past month,” said Kingston, “Our engineers continue to focus on improving high-speed yields to get faster products in the hands of our customers and push previously unattainable performance records.”

The Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4 is available in frequencies of up to 4800MHz and latencies ranging from CL12 to CL19. They are available as 8GB to 32GB single modules or in kits of two, four, and eight, with capacities ranging from 16GB to 256GB. HyperX memory modules are also Intel XMP-ready with certified profiles optimized for Intel’s latest chipsets.
