G.Skill announced that his latest Trident Z Royal rams were the basis of the new world record for ram memory frequencies, reaching 6666MHz along with an Asus ROG Maximus XII Apex and an Intel Core i9-10900K. The module used was the F4-4000C18-8GTRG, part of the 2x8GB 4000MHz C18 kit from G.Skill's Trident Z Royal line.
Behind the record is the Asus development team, who obtained this and several other records testing their latest Apex. The particular user who broke the record was bionbao, whose HWBOT validation can be found here.
Speaking of the record itself, 6665.4MHz was specifically reached, which CPU-Z reports as DDR4-6666, obviously using liquid nitrogen on the processor to cool its memory controller and on the memories to allow the frequencies to be raised to the maximum possible. When looking for the maximum frequency, the latencies should be as high as possible so that they do not become a restriction, and that is why 31-63-63-63-3 latencies were used, which are the maximum allowed by the motherboard.
If you are interested in seeing how the record was broken, we leave you this video that shows the live process:
