Pro-Overclocker Achieves DDR5-10600 Memory Speed With AMD Ryzen 7 8700G APU & ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E GENE

Renowned overclocker, SafeDisk, has set the fastest DDR5 memory overclock record on the AM5 platform using the AMD Ryzen 7 8700G APU on ASUS’s ROG Crosshair X670E GENE motherboard.

AMD Ryzen 7 8700G APU Running on An ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E GENE Achieves Blazing-Fast DDR5-10600 Overclock

A few days ago, Gigabyte achieved a record overclock of DDR5-10346 using an AMD Ryzen 7 8700G APU with its memory overclocking B650E AORUS Tachyon motherboard however, ASUS in-house OC expert, SafeDisk, quickly managed to blaze ahead of that record with a new overclock using the ROG Crosshair X670E GENE motherboard.

The latest record pushes the DDR5 memory speeds on the AM5 platform even further. For the OC session, a pair of the G.Skill Trident Z5 (F5-7800J3646H16G) memory sticks was used running at a default CL36 7800 MT/s speed at 1.45V. For cooling, a standard liquid-cooler was used and you can also note that the VRMs on the motherboard have the heatsink removed. With everything set into action, SafeDisk achieved a record DDR5-10600 overclock with the dual-DIMM setup at the same voltages and with timings of 50-62-62-127-127. The overclock was able to boot directly into the OS and says that the whole OC procedure was very easy.

We were also told that no BCLK adjustment was involved and that’s important to mention here because apparently, there’s a bug within the latest AGESA BIOS firmware that may show a higher DDR5 memory clock but in reality, that’s not the case.

This was confirmed by using an oscilloscope and adjusting the EX-clock (BCLK) within the BIOS settings didn’t change the memory clock at all so that means that the test result achieved by Gigabyte isn’t the real deal whereas the one achieved by SafeDisk is the more factual result. This bug is seen in the AGESA release which was released just a few weeks back and offers optimized support for AMD’s Ryzen 8000G APU family.

You can find the validation of the DDR5-10600 record OC here along with a screenshot posted below:

After this DDR5-10600 memory overclock record, it looks like AMD has an edge up over Intel in the dual-channel extreme memory OC segment. Intel has so far achieved up to DDR5-10382 speeds on a dual-channel setup while AMD’s AM5 platform now sits at DDR5-10600 and this might just be the start of things to come.
