Velocity Micro Raptor Z55 gaming PC review

Intel Alder Lake is here and it’s set to change the PC gaming landscape. System builders are also keen to show off what they can do with Intel’s new gaming powerhouse, especially in combination with Nvidia’s high-end graphics cards. We’ve already looked at new systems from Corsair and HP that use the same Core i9 12900K (opens in new tab) found in this machine, but Velocity Micro took a different approach to these two systems, shipping this Raptor Z55 pre-baked with a 5.1GHz all-core overclock (those are the P-cores that the E- cores are clocked). 4GHz). That’s an impressive feat, as you’ll soon see.

But it’s not cheap. The ticket price for this machine? Cool $4,999.
