G.SKILL said on Wednesday that it has broken the world's record for the fastest quad channel DDR3. The company accomplished this feat by using a 16 GB (4 x 4 GB) G.SKILL TridentX memory kit, Intel's new i7-4960X "Haswell" CPU, the Asus Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard, and liquid nitrogen extreme cooling. This platform allowed the company to overclock the DDR3 memory kit to an insane 4072 MHz.
"No limit is too high for G.SKILL memory," the company said. "In just a week after the official release of the new Intel Ivy Bridge-E Core i7 Extreme processors, G.SKILL memory is already testing the extreme limits of the Intel processors and broke the world record for fastest DDR3 yet again."
The company also announced on Wednesday that it has teamed up with MSI, Lian Li and GX-Gaming USA in a "Global Gaming Giveaway" for simply showing support on all participating vendors' Facebook pages. The companies will give away huge bundles of hardware to the first and second place winners, as well as swag packs for third, fourth and fifth places consisting of an MSI Gaming Motherboard polo shirt and a G.SKILL lanyard.
