Intel Raptor Lake makes jaws drop with 13700K CPU spotted at 6.2GHz overclock

Intel’s Raptor Lake processors have appeared in a few more leaks, kicking the rumor mill into high gear around these 13th-generation chips, and spotting alleged pre-release samples of the Core i9-13900K and Core i7-13700K – with the latter running at a seriously fast 6.2GHz.

Let’s start with that 13700K leak that VideoCardz (opens in new tab) marked. It consists of a qualifying sample chip (which essentially means a completed CPU shipped for testing) benchmarked against CPU-Z while being clocked at nearly 6.2GHz (6185MHz) across all of its performance cores (with the efficiency- cores at 4189 MHz), as shared on Twitter by QXE.
