Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake flagship has been overclocked to an incredible 9GHz on the ROG Z790 Maximus Apex. ASUS’s overclocking team performed the feat, breaking the record for the highest-clocked consumer processor. The Core i9-13900K registered an impressive 6.85 seconds in Pifast and 3 minutes 3 seconds in Superpi 32M, making it the fastest in both benchmarks.
