G.Skill achieves DDR5-10000 overclock with air cooling on Z790 - DDR5 memory has a lot of potential

With an i9-13900K processor and an ASUS ROG Maximus 790 Apex motherboard, G. Skill has shown off the potential of its DDR5 memory modules by showcasing some impressive overclocks.

With a 32GB kit (2x 16GB modules) of their own DDR5 memory, G.Skill has showcased DDR5-7800 and DDR5-8000 speeds running on Intel's new Z790 motherboard platform, but what's more impressive is what G.Skill has achieved when they push the limits of their DDR5 modules. G.Skill managed to push their memory to DDR5-10000 speeds using air cooling, highlighting the potential that future DDR5 memory modules and processors could achieve in the future. 

DDR5-10000 - The Downsides

The problem with G.Skill's DDR5-10000 memory overclock is that it was achieved with a single module of DDR5 memory in single channel mode while their i9-13900K processor ran its memory controller in Gear 4 mode. In short, this configuration is not useful for real world application, as DDR5 memory modules should have two active memory channels and user would achieve higher levels of system performance when using their CPU in Gear 2 or Gear 1 mode. 

This memory overclock required a DDR5 memory modules to be used with half as many memory channels, in a single module configuration. That's a 4x bandwidth decrease over a standard DDR5 dual module setup. Aside from getting some bragging rights, this memory overclock is useless. 

The Future of DDR5

G.Skill has showcased a DDR5 memory module running at DDR5-10000 speeds using air cooling, suggesting that future CPUs and DRAM modules will be able to achieve these speeds with higher levels of stability at some point in the future. 

Future processors should be able to handle faster DDR5 memory speeds, and future DDR5 memory modules should be able to achieve higher frequencies without stability issues or overly high CAS latencies. If DDR5-8000 speeds can be achieved in Gear 2 mode on a modern i9 processor in a dual module configuration, there is no reason why DDR5-10000 speeds shouldn't be achievable within a few product generations. It is still early days for DDR5, and that means that there is a lot of potential that is still untapped. 

With DDR4, memory speeds greatly increased over the lifespan of the memory type and the memory controllers within CPUs needed to evolve to keep up with the increasing speeds of newer DRAM modules. We expect to see a similar trend of DDR5 memory, and fully expect DDR5-10000 memory modules to be available in a few years.

So, we're talking about 10,000 not 100,000 right? The title says 100,000 Quote
