Ryzen 7 8700G turned out to be good at overclocking RAM — DDR5-10600 conquered without extreme cooling

The Ryzen 8000G series of desktop hybrid processors has attracted the attention of enthusiasts with support for high-speed RAM and good overclocking capabilities. Recently, overclockers were able to overclock DDR5 memory to 10,600 MHz and even higher on systems with Ryzen 7 8700G, and without having to resort to extreme cooling.

Various teams of overclockers have been actively experimenting with overclocking RAM on systems with Ryzen 7 8700G over the past few days.. For example, SafeDisk enthusiast shared details of overclocking a dual-channel RAM kit on the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene motherboard to 10,600 MT/s.

For the experiment, the G.Skill Trident Z5 memory kit was chosen, initially designed to operate at a speed of 7800 MT/s with CL36 timings.

As part of the overclocking, the memory speed was increased to 10,600 MHz. But at the same time, timings have also increased. The memory worked with delays CL50-62-62-127-127 and a voltage of 1.4 V. It is noteworthy that the enthusiast did not use any exotic cooling, such as liquid nitrogen, to overclock the RAM.. The Ryzen 7 8700G processor itself also worked under a regular LSS.

More impressive overclocking results have already appeared in the CPU-Z Validator database. For example, an overclocker with the pseudonym MSIMAX overclocked TeamGroup memory with a declared overclocking profile of 8200 MT/s to a frequency of 10,950 MHz on the Gigabyte B650I Aorus Ultra motherboard.

A few hours later, another overclocker recorded the result of overclocking Patriot memory with a profile of 8200 MT/s to 11,298 MHz on the Gigabyte Aorus B650E Tachyon motherboard.

According to information among enthusiasts, a bug was discovered in the new AGESA library, on the basis of which BIOSes for AMD motherboards are produced, which leads to the fact that overclocking results may display higher memory frequency values than they actually are.. The same SafeDisk overclocker provided a photo of the oscilloscope confirming its overclocking result, which cannot be said about the other two experimenters.

While SafeDisk's result, according to HWBOT, is not as high as memory overclocking on Intel platforms, it should be noted that enthusiasts are overclocking DDR5 RAM with Ryzen 8000G processors in dual-channel mode, rather than single-channel like Intel's.
