The MSI Overclocking Team in Taiwan have set a new world record for the fastest DDR4 memory frequency, cranking the speed on Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4 RAM up to 7156MHz.
The result was recorded with a Kingston HyperX 4600MHz Predator DDR4 8G module (part number: HX446C19PB3K2/16) on an MSI MEG Z590I UNIFY motherboard, using a 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11900KF CPU with a 3.50GHz clock speed.

A spokesperson for Kingston said the company was extremely thrilled and humbled to be part of this “exemplary” DDR4 overclocking achievement.
“Our engineers work continuously to improve higher-speed memory yields to bring faster solutions by pushing boundaries that break performance records and bring best-in-class products to our gaming memory community,” they said.
According to Kingston, the HyperX Predator DDR4 high-performance memory pairs bold and aggressive style, with their media materials noting “the frequencies available for purchase has expanded to 4800MHz along with latencies from CL12-CL19. HyperX memory modules are Intel XMP-ready and its certified profiles are optimized for Intel’s latest chipsets and are also compatible with many of AMD’s latest chipsets.”
