Intel’s Core i9-9900KS is due to hit store shelves soon. Our full review should be live in a just a couple of days, but in the meantime Intel is letting us show the processor and its wild packaging. Like the Core i9-9900K, the upcoming Core i9-9900KS ships in a translucent, midnight-blue dodecahedron, with a stylized cardboard band wrapped around the enclosure to keep things neatly strapped in. Check it out... The Core i9-9900KS is similar to the existing 9900K in terms of its core count, cache configuration, socket, and packaging – they are based on the same silicon after all and the 9900KS will work on the same motherboards. With the Core i9-9900KS, however, Intel is selectively... Read more...
Intel first announced its Core i9-9900KS processor way back in late May, and we haven't heard much from them about the product since then. The Core i9-9900KS will be Intel's new enthusiast-class flagship processor for its mainstream platform and it promises to pack a serious performance punch. Intel today confirmed that the processor will begin shipping in October, although no exact date was given. At its heart, the Core i9-9900KS is an 8-core / 16-thread 9th generation Core CPU built on Intel's 14nm++ process tech. Not only does the processor feature a tweaked base clock (now sitting at 4GHz compared to 3.6GHz on the Core i9-9900K), but it can boost to 5GHz across all eight of its... Read more...
Some early benchmarks of Intel's not-yet-released Core i9-9900KS processor have popped up, with comparison figures to AMD's recently launched Ryzen 7 3800X. It is a fitting cage fight, as both processors sport 8 physical cores and 16 threads, the former with faster clockspeeds and the latter boasting a new chip architecture. Famed leaker and Twitter user APISAK spotted the leaked benchmark comparison on Geekbench. Before we get to the numbers, let's quickly recap the specs. Intel's Core i9-9900KS is a Special Edition version of the Core i9-9900K based on the company's Coffee Lake architecture. What sets it apart, however, is that can achieve an all-core boost clock of 5GHz. It also has a faster... Read more...
Roughly a year ago, Intel announced a special edition chip -- the Core i7-8086K Anniversary Edition -- to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the historic 8086 processor. This year, Intel is back with another chip that will see a limited release for the enthusiast market: the Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition 8-core/16-thread processor. This represents yet another outgrowth of the original Core i9-9900K.  While the Core i9-9900KF killed off the integrated graphics core, the Core i9-9900KS makes some rather big changes to base and turbo clocks. For starters, the base clock of the processor has been increased from 3.6GHz to 4GHz, which should allow for some... Read more...
