MSI's new MEG Z590 Unify-X motherboard has been used to break the world record for DDR4 memory frequency, with an insane DDR4-7200 memory overclock.
Taiwan-based overclocker Toppc used the MSI MEG Z590 Unify-X motherboard alongside some Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 memory, reaching DDR4-7200 speeds. With Toppc using Intel's new Core i9-11900K processor, with just 2 cores and 2 threads enabled and the CPU downclocked to 1.5GHz with 1.505V of voltage.
LN2 cooling was used for the overclocking record, with the DDR4 memory set to CL58-63-63-63-2 3600 MHz (1:27). MSI's new MEG Z590 Unify-X motherboard was built for this very task: memory overclocking and smashing memory world records and I think MSI has just done that without a problem -- and we're only weeks into the launch of Rocket Lake-S.
There's only 2 x DIMMs on the MSI MEG Z590 Unify-X motherboard, which for most people might not be enough but it exactly what you want as an overclocker. The board itself has a 16+2 phase VRM design and 90A power stages, with an 8-layer PCB and 2oz copper design.
MSI will be launching the MSI MEG Z590 Unify-X motherboard soon, with pricing somewhere between $300-$350.
