World Memory Speed Record with Kingston HyperX James White November 11, 2011 A lot of world records in computer speed seem to be on the chopping block in recent months. First the single GPU 3DMark06 score was broken some 4 times in 2 days. Then the AMD FX-8150 broke the CPU clock speed record using liquid helium. Now the memory speed records for CL6 and CL8 have been broken using Kingston HyperX RAM. Much like the CPU overclocking records, the enemy here is heat. All electrical components degrade in performance on an exponential curve as heat rises. The obvious way to attack this problem is to add something as cold as the circuits will be hot to bring the temperature into a reasonable range. Two Swiss overclockers, Roger Tanner and Marc Voser from Ocaholic.ch broke the previous world record by stabilizing their Kingston HyperX RAM to 3095 MHz at CL6 and 3175 MHz at CL8 timings. They also attempted the world record for CL7, but just couldn’t get the RAM to play along. I guess two out of three is amazing when you are talking about world records. Share This With The World!
