With hardly any noise and with just a note on its website, Intel has officially launched its Intel Core i9-13900KS processor. The company unveiled the product calling it “the world’s fastest desktop processor” when operating at its maximum frequency, 6GHz. Intel even highlights this as the first CPU capable of reaching 6 GHz of frequency without overclocking.
Overall, the new Intel Core i9-13900KS maintains the company’s Intel Core i9-13900K specifications, such as 24 cores (eight for performance and 16 for efficiency) and 32 threads. The main difference is the performance in the 6 GHz frequency when in turbo clock, against the 5.8 GHz of the 13900K, in addition to presenting slightly different TDPs in relation to the base model, being 150W / 253W (Turbo) against 125W / 253W (Turbo).
