In recent years, Intel’s special edition processors have become really extravagant. Intel instead of going the AMD route opts for lower core count and higher frequencies. The Core i7–8086K, Core i9-9990XE, Xeon W-3175X all of them were great products when they were launched. Especially when you consider the core number and frequency simultaneously.
During the Taipei Computer Show, Intel announced the Core i9-9900KS, which is a special version of the existing mainstream flagship i9-9900K. It not only increases the reference base frequency to 4.0GHz but also has increased the full core turbo frequency to 5.0GHz!
Intel Core i9 9900KS details and tests
There was also a great test bench running the i9-9900KS in Taipei. It was cooled extremely well and successfully achieved the full-core 5GHz state on the Intel Core i9 9900KS. The test bench specifications were top of the line and Intel put out quite a show with the demo.
The 9900KS is an octa-core 16 thread CPU. It has 16 MB cache memory and is easily one of the most powerful CPUs in Intel’s current lineup.
According to reports, motherboard manufacturers will provide a special option in the BIOS, allowing the new Intel i9-9900KS to lock into the full-core 5GHz state. Of course, this can also be manually turned off and the user can continue to overclock.
The i9-9900KS will be officially launched in the fourth quarter of 2019. The most critical thermal design power specification should also be announced before that. But it is conceivable that this is definitely a good demonstration of Intel’s special product. And the price will definitely be crazy high as has been seen with all the past Intel special edition processors!
