BOISE, Idaho, May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ballistix®, Micron’s leading global brand of gaming memory, today announced that its Elite DDR4 3600MT/s memory was used to set a new overclocking world record for the fastest DDR4 memory frequency at 5726MT/s. The world record was set on May 13, 2019 by Stavros Savvopoulos and Phil Strecker, members of the Overclocked Gaming Systems (OGS) team, using liquid nitrogen (LN2) cooling and the following system set-up:
- Intel® i7-8086K CPU
- ASUS® Maximus XI Apex Motherboard
- Ballistix Elite 3600MT/s 8GB module
“We were blown away by how surprisingly easy it was to overclock these Ballistix Elite DDR4 3600MT/s modules. Other modules we’ve overclocked can be temperamental and need to train at temperatures lower than the one required for stability; but we didn’t experience that with Micron’s E-die, which scaled much better with both extreme voltages and temperatures,” explained Savvopoulos. “Overall, it was easy enough to call the whole experience plug and play!”
“Breaking this world record reinforces our commitment to the enthusiast community. Our Ballistix product lineup provides the high-speed, low-latency and overclock headroom that gamers, content creators, and enthusiasts crave,” said Teresa Kelley, Vice President of Micron’s Consumer Products Group. “We will continue to focus on offering an exceptional high-performance memory and storage portfolio, with Micron, Crucial, and Ballistix engineers striving to deliver leading-edge technology that redefines the performance boundary.”
Ballistix Elite DDR4 3600MT/s modules are available in 8GB single modules and kits up to 32GB and can be purchased at Crucial.com, Amazon.com, or through select global channel partners. Ballistix DDR4 memory is Intel XMP-ready and has been optimized for the latest Intel and AMD® chipsets, and all Ballistix memory is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.1 For more information about Ballistix memory, visit http://www.ballistixgaming.com/.
