Micron Pushes DDR4 to 6024 MHz, Breaks World Record

Micron has reportedly set a new world record for DDR4 memory speeds. Using a dry ice cooling setup, A Crucial Ballistix chip with Micron memory was taken from 4000 MHz all the way up to 6024.4 MHz, a blistering 51 percent bump to frequency. This is 24 MHz higher than the previous record, held by a G-Skill Trident Z memory kit.

This is definitely not an option for day to day computer use, though. Condensation caused by the extreme chill got all over the PC being tested. This is really only viable if you want to have bragging rights to 6 GHz memory for, well, a few minutes. The feat was accomplished on an X570 Crosshair VIII Impact motherboard from Asus. This is what Albert Chang, Asus’s Motherboard GM had to say about it:

We’re thrilled to have partnered with Ballistix to achieve this new world record,” said Albert Chang, general manager of the motherboard BU for ASUS. “Both overclocking teams worked tirelessly to fine-tune BIOS settings on our newly-released ROG CROSSHAIR VIII IMPACT board to unleash the capabilities of the Micron die. Setting the new world record of 6024 MT/s with Ballistix Elite 4000 memory on our new ROG AMD X570 motherboard is a powerful demonstration of the engineering excellence ASUS ROG and Micron bring to the gaming ecosystem.

The Ballistix brand, owned by Micron, is having its time in the spotlight: Ballistix has broken multiple overclocking records this year.

While you’re not going to be using dry-ice cooled gaming components any time soon, it’s interesting to see companies dedicated to pushing their own hardware to the limit. Here’s a shoutout to all those 2030s kids who think 6 GHz memory is stupidly slow.
