Intel i9 9900KS Processor:
5GHz On All Eight Cores
It looks like we might be getting new toys?
So yesterday, we arrived here in Taipei, Taiwan for the largest computer expo of the year, COMPUTEX 2019.
Prior to the start of Computex, Intel has announced a new processor.
*Probably in attempt to snatch the spotlight away from AMD’s announcement of Zen 2 (Ryzen 3). You can catch their livestream here.*
The Core i9 9900K Special Edition (i9 9900KS) processor. It will have 5 GHz boost activated on all eight cores. So basically in threaded workloads where one or all threads are utilized, the processor will boost to 5 GHz in all cores, in contrast to the existing Core i9 9900K, which has only one core active up to 5 GHz, and on all core stress translates towards a maximum of 4.7 GHz.
However, Intel did not share any details on what the TDP is going to be for this processor but obviously it is going to me more than a 100 watts.
Intel actually do have a demo system for us to look at, which uses a standard motherboard with an AIO liquid cooler. Intel confirmed that the chip is soldered. Maybe you can say that this is just simply the same silicon as the i9 9900K but better binned.
Or you can simply start building your own i9 9900K with with us today and have it overclocked to 5.0Ghz on all cores.
More details coming soon in a few days. Either way, we can’t wait for the announcement of many more exciting stuffs here!
