Intel Raptor Lake – blocked processors without OC options. The reason is the lack of microcode to circumvent the restrictions

Intel Raptor Lake - blocked processors without OC options.  The reason is the lack of microcode to circumvent the restrictionsOverclockers will have to do without the taste this time, because it will probably be impossible to overclock locked Raptor Lake processors. There is no microcode that unlocked this possibility in hardware theoretically not supporting this function, in models from the twelfth generation of Intel CPUs. There is little chance that motherboard manufacturers will provide a BIOS that allows these units to be overclocked this time.

Blocked processors from the Intel Raptor Lake family are unlikely to receive overclocking. The reason is the lack of appropriate microcode that would provide such an option.

Intel Core i5-13400F vs AMD Ryzen 5 7600 processor test – Which will be a better choice for around PLN 1,000?

The microcode to unlock older generation processors has never been official. This was an early version that accidentally allowed the BCLK setting to be manipulated, resulting in the ability to overclock Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake units. Of course, the oversight was corrected before the final release of the processors on the market, however, motherboard manufacturers found a way to remove the imposed limitations with a modified version of the BIOS. As a result, it was possible to overclock even theoretically locked Alder Lake chips, although the availability of this function was mainly limited to Z series boards that benefited from DDR5 memory.

Intel Core i9-13900KS – the manufacturer presents the fastest 13th generation processor with a clock speed of 6 GHz and 300 W power limit

There are no reports that motherboard manufacturers will want to use a similar solution for Raptor Lake processors. The reason is the lack of proper microcode on Intel’s part. It is therefore unlikely that Intel units without the letter “K” in the name have the possibility of unofficial overclocking. After installing the latest generation processor in an older motherboard that previously allowed overclocking of locked CPUs, the overclocking option disappears completely from the BIOS settings.

Intel Core i9-13900T – the 13th generation Raptor Lake processor with a TDP of 35 W in the popular benchmark performs better than the Core i9-12900K

It seems that Intel is learning from its mistakes and this time processors without the “K” ending will actually remain blocked. While this option is theoretically available on previous generation CPUs, it should be noted that this is not an Intel-supported feature. The American company officially advises against such practices. Using the possibility of overclocking blocked processors is always at the user’s risk.
