G.Skill is still reaching for the skies when it comes to memory frequency. This time they’ve managed to hit a very impressive DDR3-4072 using four TridentX sticks. Here’s the press release.
World’s First Quad Channel DDR3 above 4GHz, on the Intel Core i7-4960X CPU & ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard
Taipei, Taiwan – 18 September 2013 – No limit is too high for G.SKILL memory. In just a week after the official release of the new Intel Ivy Bridge-E Core i7 Extreme processors, G.SKILL memory is already testing the extreme limits of the Intel processors and broke the world record for fastest DDR3 yet again. This time a 16GB (4x4GB) G.SKILL TridentX memory kit is overclocked to a blistering DD3 4072MHz – the first instance of a quad-channel DDR3 memory kit to break the 4GHz barrier!
This astounding feat was made possible and achieved on the new Intel i7-4960X CPU and the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard under LN2 extreme cooling.

Established in 1989 by computer hardware enthusiasts, G.SKILL is a leading memory & Solid State Drive manufacturer based in Taipei, Taiwan. The company’s top priority is quality. All of the products undergo a series of the most rigorous tests and strict quality control processes. In addition to a committed, qualified IC testing house to examine the products, all G.SKILL products are 100% tested to ensure the highest yield, reliability and quality.
Impressive feat, that’s for sure. I haven’t hidden my disdain for high frequency, lower performance memory and its horrible price-for-performance ratio but the overclocker in me is still impressed with this kind of feat. This isn’t one stick of binned memory getting a validation – this is in quad channel, which is immensely more difficult. Well done G.Skill.
In addition to that, G.Skill is holding a big gaming hardware giveaway on Facebook.
