Compared to Alder Lake CPUs, the Raptor Lake chips are expected to bring a decent bump in clock speeds, with the highest clock supposedly coming in at 5.5GHz. However, it seems you'll be able to squeeze a bit more out of them through overclocking, with reports claiming we'll see 6GHz speeds.
The report comes from VideoCardz, who received some screenshots showing a Core i7-13700K on an MSI MEG Z690I Unify. The processor running at 1.42V was pushed to 6GHz with hybrid mode disabled (P-cores only), scoring 983 points in the 1T-test and 7,814.7 in the nT-test. We can also see the CPU temperatures in the screenshot, but considering they are set between 25ºC and 37ºC, we assume they were recorded after the CPU-Z run ended.

In a second screenshot, we see another overclocked Core i7-13700K with all of its P-cores at 5.8 GHz and the E-cores at 3.7 GHz. Here, the CPU ran at 1.5V on an Asus ROG Strix Z690-A Gaming and scored 947 in the single-core test and 12,896.8 points in the multi-core test. Once again, the temperatures were relatively low, so the screenshot was probably taken after the tests were finished.
The last benchmark, shared by @esperonlaie, looks to be from the same source. Unlike the other two, this one is a video that shows Cinebench R23 being run in the background. The CPU was running at 5.9GHz (hybrid mode disabled) at 1.445V with temperatures surrounding 85ºC. Unfortunately, the video was stopped before we could see the benchmark result, but the preview showed the processor was already scoring 15,783 points (about the same as a Core i9-10900K).

KitGuru says: It's nice to see the Raptor Lake chips still have room for overclocking. However, considering the previous reports, you might be better off running the chips at stock settings, as the processors seem to run hot and have high power draw.
