Intel Unveils Core i9-13900KS: Raptor Lake Spreads Its Wings to 6.0 GHz
Initially mentioned during their Innovation 2022 opening keynote by Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, Intel has unveiled its highly anticipated 6 GHz out-of-the-box processor, the Core i9-13900KS. The Core i9-13900KS has 24-cores (8P+16E) within its hybrid architecture design of performance and efficiency cores, with the exact fundamental specifications of the Core i9-13900K, but with an impressive P-core turbo of up to 6 GHz.
Based on Intel’s Raptor Lake-S desktop series, Intel claims that the Core i9-13900KS is the first desktop processor to reach 6 GHz out of the box without overclocking. Available from today, the Core i9-13900KS has a slightly higher base TDP of 150 W (versus 125 on the 13900K), 36 MB of Intel’s L3 smart cache, and is pre-binned through a unique selection process to ensure the Core i9-13900KS’s special edition status for their highest level of frequency of 6 GHz in a desktop chip out of the box, without the need to overclock manually.
