Intel unleashes the i9-9900KS, a special edition clocked to 5GHz on all cores
Intel has released some details on a new SoC ahead of its Computex 2019 showcase. It is the Core i9-9900KS, an octa-core CPU that is a variation on the 9th-gen Coffee Lake line. It can not only run at a speed of 5.0GHz, but can do so on all of its cores. This may be great news for gaming PC enthusiasts - except maybe for those who have already bought the i9-9900K.
Based on Intel's incredibly literal brief on the subject, the new i9-9900KS should be no different than the original, except that the pre-existing chipset can only achieve 5GHz on 1 core. However, based on this, it is possible that the new special edition's TDP may be increased beyond the stock 95 watts.
In addition, this new release is likely to be even more expensive that its immediate predecessors. That detail may be of some comfort for those who have already shelled out for these CPUs. In addition, it is known that the i9-9900K can conceivably get to the max speed on all cores in conjunction with the right LN2 or water-cooling solution.
