Maximum OC Memory Clock Speed of Several Upcoming ASUS Z690 Leaked

While we wait for Intel’s official launch of its Alder Lake platform, more leaks are making their way onto the internet and this time we get a sneak peek at the maximum memory speed at four different motherboards from ASUS. The model names of the boards leaked a couple of weeks ago, which makes this leak slightly more interesting, as we can get the full model names of the board this way, since the leaker was a bit sloppy here.

Two of the boards, the TUF Gaming Z690-Plus D4 and what we presume is the ROG Strix Z690-A Gaming D4, but the Wi-Fi version, as there are no Prime gaming boards, top out at 5,333 MHz. However, this shouldn’t come as a surprise, as both boards rely on DDR4 and the highest memory speed is on par with ASUS’ current Z590 boards.

Next we have the Prime Z690-A, which seems to be a mid-range non ROG board and it looks like it’ll top out at 6,000 MHz. The last model appears to be a board that hasn’t leaked as yet, but which we presume is the ROG Strix Z690-F Gaming, as there’s a DDR4 version of this board. Here memory speeds are slightly higher at 6,400 MHz, but this still seems fairly low, as there have been leaks of a board from Gigabyte with memory clocks of 8,000 MHz, so either ASUS is playing it conservatively on its lower-end boards, or these are not the final overclockable memory speeds for these boards.
