Intel’s flagship Raptor Lake CPUs run at up to 5.8GHz

The Intel Core i9 12900KS is available now with dual-core boost clocks up to 5.5GHz. But even that clock speed seems to be just a taste of what’s to come. New rumors point to a boost clock of up to 5.8GHz for Intel’s flagship 13th Gen Raptor Lake model.

The message comes from a tweet @OneRaichu pass El Chapuzas Information. It states that Intel can add 200-300MHz on the 12900KS. Although it remains to be seen what impact this will have on power efficiency, as power demand is known to increase dramatically while chasing the last few megabytes.
