Intel has just launched its newest flagship processor, the Core i9-14900KS, boasting an impressive maximum turbo frequency of 6.2GHz. This speed is 200MHz higher than its predecessor, the Core i9-13900KS, making it the first desktop processor to break the 6GHz barrier at stock speeds. Priced at $699, the Core i9-14900KS offers an out-of-the-box boost that leaves room for overclocking to achieve even higher speeds.

The Core i9-14900KS features 24 cores, with eight performance cores and 16 efficiency cores. While it maintains similar features to the 14900K, it runs at a 150-watt base power, compared to the 125 watts of the 14900K. The processor is essentially a “binned” version, specially selected to run at a higher clock speed. It is compatible with Z790 and Z690 motherboards with the latest BIOS updates.

Intel promises up to 15 percent better gaming performance with the Core i9-14900KS compared to the 13900KS, and up to 73 percent improvement for 3D production multitasking workflows over AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X. This processor is expected to compete with AMD’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D in terms of PC gaming performance. Initial benchmarks from Intel suggest that the 14900KS may outperform the 7800X3D in certain games.

The Core i9-14900KS is likely one of the last processors to use the LGA 1700 socket, as Intel is transitioning to a new socket for its upcoming CPU generation. Retailers are already stocking the 14900KS on shelves, and it will also be available in OEM systems. With its impressive speeds and performance improvements, the Core i9-14900KS is set to make waves in the processor market. Intel enthusiasts and gamers alike will be eagerly awaiting reviews and benchmarks to see how this new processor stacks up against its competitors.
