Talking specifically about the Arc A770 graphics card, Tom mentioned that they had one sample (not cherry-picked) running at up to 2.7 GHz with just a few voltage optimizations. The card was said to be running at 228W, which is just 3W above the TBP of 225W and the temperatures were steady at around 80C on the stock air cooler with no fan speed change. The card was running Hitman 3 and with even better coolers, we can potentially see higher clocks closing in on the 3 GHz mark.

Some of the highlighted features of the new Arc A770 Limited Edition GPU from Intel include:

Intel anticipates that the new graphics card series will be released at the company's Innovation event, which will be held on September 27th, just over one week away. On the same day, Intel plans to officially reveal the 13th Gen Core Raptor Lake desktop processor series to the world.
