Extreme Performance Gear, popularly known as XPG, may soon launch its cutting-edge DDR5 RAM. However, the brand seems to be working on drawing the attention of gamers already as the company has announced that in the overclocking lab, its DDR5 RAM has been overclocked up to such an extent. XPG, the gaming brand from Taiwanese company Adata, focuses on systems, components, and peripherals for gamers, esports professionals, and enthusiasts. The company has announced that XPG Over Clocking Lab (XOCL) has overclocked its upcoming DDR5 memory module to a frequency of whooping 8,118 MT/s, in a DRAM actually rated for a base clock of 4,800MT/s.

XPG shared data establishing their claims. The company supplied CPU-Z results to back up the claims. In the first attempt, a clock speed of 8,118 MT/s was achieved while the second attempt resulted in is a bit lower clock speed at 8,104 MT/s. For the first time, a DDR5 memory module has been overclocked to such an extent, and XPG claims it to be a ‘record-breaking milestone.

However, XPG has already hinted that new sticks that would arrive later with a maximum possible clock of 12,600MT/s. The company is expected to launch its new DDR5 RAM this month. However, it’s unclear whether users in real-life situations would be able to replicate such overclocking milestones. If we talk about the screenshots and what we get from them, not everything is out in the open just yet. However, XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) used a pre-production unit of 16GB DDR5 memory module based on ICs from SK Hynix with a stock data transfer rate of 4,800 MT/s. We use the term ‘pre-production unit’ because some parts in the screenshots are greyed out.

However, it’s unclear whether users in real-life situations would be able to replicate such overclocking milestones. That will be revealed only after the company ships those sticks to the shelves in stores and to the doorsteps of consumers!
