Intel Core i9-9900KS Announced – 5GHz Turbo On All Cores

At Computex 2019, Intel announced the special edition Intel Core i9-9900KS CPU that is capable of reaching 5GHz Turbo speed on all cores. Now, this announcement happened just before AMD’s announcement of the new Ryzen CPU. If you can remember, Intel also made a similar move after AMD announced the Ryzen 2nd gen CPU. At that time they announced the Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition, a CPU that is basically an i7-8700K but can boost up to 5GHz. See the pattern? The Intel Core i9-9900KS is basically an i9-9900K but with a boost clock speed that can reach 5GHz on all cores at the same time. Frankly, it’s not a very exciting product since most i9-9900K CPUs can be manually overclock to hit 5GHz on all cores. More details below.

Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition CPU

The Intel Core i9-9900KS features 8 cores and 16 threads with a base clock speed of 4GHz and an all-core turbo speed of 5GHz. This basically means that all 8 cores will boost to 5GHz at the same time. Unlike in the case of the Core i9-9900K, it can boost up to 5GHz, but only for a single core. The i9-9900K has a base clock speed of 3.6GHz and an all-core turbo speed of 4.7GHz.

The rest of the specs are basically the same. The i9-9900KS also comes with an integrated Intel UHD 630 graphics and supports DDR4-2666 memory. However, we don’t know its TDP and its retail price. I’m guessing its TDP may be similar with the i9-9900K at 95W, or Intel could bump up the TDP at 100W or more for stability. But if there’s one thing I am sure of, it’s going to be more expensive than the Core i9-9900K.

For reference, the Intel Core i9-9900K comes with a retail price of $488 USD, the i9-9900KF (another variant without an iGPU) is retailed at $488 as well. Perhaps the i9-9900KS may be priced around $500 USD or a bit more.

So far Intel hasn’t shown something that really excites the people at Computex 2019; as all eyes are current on AMD’s new CPU and upcoming NAVI GPU.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
