Adata overclocks its DDR5 module to 8118 MT/s

DDR5 memory modules and supporting platforms are not yet on the market, but DRAM manufacturers have begun an informal DDR5 overclocking race. Recently, ADATA’s XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) announced that it has successfully overclocked the company’s DDR5 memory modules to 8,118 MT/s. This is the first time that a memory module factory has demonstrated an overclocked DDR5 SDRAM stick.

In order to achieve record data transfer rates, Adata’s XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) uses pre-production 16GB DDR5 memory modules based on SK Hynix ICs, with an inventory data transfer rate of 4,800 MT/s and unknown Intel Z690-based The motherboard is equipped with an undisclosed Intel 12th-generation Core “Alder Lake” processor. The module can reach 8104 MT/s and 8188 MT/s in single channel mode, and the system remains stable enough to load Windows and CPU-Z software.

Adata did not disclose the cooling method it uses for the CPU and the voltage it sets for the DDR5 module to reach 8188 MT/s. All the content displayed by the company is CPU-Z screenshots.

Speaking of modules, it is important to note that we are indeed dealing with pre-production unbuffered DIMMs labeled AX5U5200C38 16G-BLA, so as the name suggests, this module should run under DDR5-5200 with CL38 CAS latency. At the same time, its SPD has a 1.35V XMP-6800 CL46 entrance, which may be ready to launch by Adata in the foreseeable future. In any case, the default data rate of most DDR5 modules to be released this year will be 4800 MT/s according to the JEDEC standard.
