The retailer listed the Core i9-14900KS with a 6.2 GHz boost clock
Although the new generation Core i9-14900K was only recently released, Intel is poised to unveil a fresh batch of processors. Barring any surprises, they are expected to announce the remaining non-K processors of the 14th generation at CES 2024. It’s worth recalling that the 13th generation K-series processors were launched in October 2022, and the Core i9-13900KS followed in January 2023. Consequently, Intel will probably introduce the Core i9-14900KS in January of the following year.
An online retailer in Israel has already listed a range of computers equipped with the Core i9-14900KS processor in their online marketplace. Although this processor has not yet been released, Intel has been providing information about it to PC partners, retailers, and distributors. The product pages reveal that the Core i9-14900KS’s maximum turbo frequency is 6.2GHz, corroborating similar rumors that emerged in May, now further substantiated.
Given that the maximum core count for Raptor Lake-S chips is 8P+16E, the Core i9-14900KS is expected to follow this specification, with 36MB of L3 cache. Its frequency, with a peak turbo of 6.2GHz, is 200MHz higher than both the Core i9-14900K and Core i9-13900KS. However, the specifics of its all-core turbo frequency remain undisclosed. Considering that the single and all-core turbo frequencies of the Core i9-14900K are 200MHz higher than those of the Core i9-13900K, it is plausible that the all-core turbo frequency of the Core i9-14900KS could also surpass the Core i9-13900KS by 200MHz, potentially reaching 5.8GHz.
Regarding the TDP, the Core i9-14900KS is likely to mirror the Core i9-13900KS with a rating of 150W and a maximum turbo power of 253W. However, these are merely indicative figures; in reality, many users operate these processors with limits removed, pushing the final power consumption estimates to exceed 350W.
