Intel launched its 13th generation desktop processor globally in September, while the lineup launched in India in mid-October. This month they are launching their fastest desktop processor yet, breaking the 6GHz barrier at stock speeds for the first time.
The new Core i9-13900KS is without a doubt the fastest desktop CPU on the market right now and is based on the 13th generation Core i9 13900K, which was close to the 6 GHz limit last year with its 5.8 GHz turbo frequency came. The new KS version will cost $699 or Rs.56,800 in the US and will likely be similarly priced in India.
The CPU is aimed at professional developers, gamers and other enthusiastic users. It uses Intel’s Performance Hybrid Architecture to provide users with an unparalleled experience in productivity-related tasks, gaming and content production.
The 13900KS is the first CPU to reach 6GHz without overclocking, breaking the 6GHz barrier and improving PC gaming performance. It does this by using Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost technology.
Intel has increased the base power of the 13900KS from the base power of 125 watts of the 13900K to 150 watts. At maximum turbo power, the KS version achieves just over 250 watts.
The base frequencies of the performance cores have been increased to 3.2 GHz, from 3 GHz for the 13900K. Otherwise, the new CPU is similar to the 13900K. The new 13900KS CPU has the same eight performance and 16 efficiency cores for a total of 24 cores running on 32 threads. The new CPU features 36MB of Intel Smart Cache and 20 PCIe lanes, of which 16 are PCIe 5 and four are PCIe 4.
The new 13900KS is compatible with both Z790 motherboards and Z690 motherboards, although it should be better paired with Z790 motherboards to get the most out of Intel’s flagship desktop CPU. Users must update their existing MoBos with the latest BIOS to get the best gaming and content creation experience.
As for RAM, the 13900KS supports it DDR5 RAMs with speeds of up to 5600 MT/s and DDR4 RAMs with speeds up to 3200 MT/s.
the Intel Core i9-13900KS is available from major retailers for users planning to build their own PCs and will appear on OEM machines soon.
