DDR5 Hits New World Record Speed With Help from Asus’ Z690 Apex Motherboard
Asus ROG has announced that one of its motherboards has been used to achieve the DDR5 memory frequency world record. Overclocker Lupin No Musume achieved DDR5-10552 memory speeds using a system based around an Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Apex motherboard.

|DDR5 OC achieved||10552||10508||10223|
|RAM brand||Asus ROG||Intel||Intel|
|Motherboard||Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Apex||MSI MEG Z690 Unify-X (MS-7D28)||Gigabyte Aorus Z690 Tachyon|
|Processor config||i9-12900K @ 3.7 GHz, 4x P-cores||i9-12900KS @ 429 MHz, 2x E-cores||i9-12900K @ 2.1 GHz, 2x P-cores|
It’s cool to see that three major motherboard brands can all achieve record-breaking performance, and no particular brand is dominant here. We just need to see DDR5-10K+ from an ASRock motherboard based system for a full-house. (Though ASRock has an entry at position 8.)
Another interesting point to see in the tabulated results, is that each overclocking expert took a slightly different tack with their processor configuration. You can see that sometimes performance cores were used, while others used efficiency cores, and at a range of clock speeds.
