Intel has unveiled its latest flagship desktop processor, the Core i9-14900KS, pushing the boundaries of computing power with a staggering 6.2GHz maximum turbo frequency. This new powerhouse CPU surpasses even the previous generation’s Core i9-13900KS, which was the first desktop processor to breach the 6GHz barrier at stock speeds.

Priced at $689/€760, the Core i9-14900KS will be available in stores starting now, offering unparalleled performance at a slightly lower cost than its predecessor. The 6.2GHz boost is an out-of-the-box feature, potentially leaving room for even higher overclocking capabilities in the hands of enthusiasts.

Under the hood, the 14900KS packs the same 24 cores as the 14900K, with eight high-performance cores and 16 efficient ones. However, it operates at a higher 150-watt base power compared to the 125 watts of the 14900K. Aside from these power and frequency differences, the 14900KS is essentially a meticulously binned version of the 14900K, carefully selected to deliver top-tier clock speeds.

Intel boasts up to 15 percent better gaming performance from the 14900KS over the 13900KS and an impressive 73 percent advantage in 3D production multitasking workflows compared to AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X. The company’s benchmarks suggest that the 14900KS could even outperform AMD’s gaming-focused Ryzen 7 7800X3D in certain titles, setting the stage for an exciting performance showdown.

With support for Z790 and Z690 motherboards (after BIOS updates), the Core i9-14900KS represents Intel’s unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of desktop computing power. As the competition in the CPU market intensifies, enthusiasts and power users alike can expect a thrilling battle for ultimate performance supremacy.
