You may be thinking of 7075-T6.
83000 psi tensile strength. But it is not considered to be weldable.
I was thinking of A36 steel and comparing based on yield strength. After a material starts yielding it's pretty much over.

What I meant was that it has a better strength to weight ratio, and I worded it poorly.
