Gigabyte Aorus DDR5 Taken to Over 9000!
HiCookie Hits DDR5-9000MHz
Unquestionably one of the biggest factors in the rise – if you’ll pardon the pun – of AMDs Zen architecture and Ryzen CPUs is their incredible memory capabilities.
The latest update to their AGESA technology, 1007B, has moved the memory sweet spot on AMD platforms from DDR5-6000 to potentially 8000 or more. This has been achieved by exposing more settings for granular control as well as DDR5 Nitro which opens up internal memory controller timings to those brave enough to adjust them. We gave you more details about this yesterday.
Famous overclocker HiCookie has been beavering away in the last 24 hours with the new 1007B AGESA and some Gigabyte Aorus memory and absolutely smashed it out of the park.
No, your eyes do not deceive you. This is DDR5-9058. Admittedly HiCookie didn’t become world renowned without having the skills to back up his exploits, but the fact that they have managed to get this kind of overclock within the first day certainly bodes well for long term potential speeds.

Which makes us very curious about those of you who update whenever you can. What memory speeds are you managing to obtain? Has the AGESA 1007B given your system a boost? At the very least it shows that AMD are determined to give consumers the most up-to-date performance without relying upon vendors to tweak their own BIOS.
Let us know how the AGESA 1007B update has affected your rig, or just bask in the glory of 9000MHz, in our OC3D Forums.
