Intel today announced full details and availability for the new 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor. Delivering up to 5.00 GHz all-core turbo frequency out of the box for the ultimate gaming experience, the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS will be available beginning Oct. 30, with recommended customer price starting at $513. This special edition processor will be available for a limited time only and can be found at retailers worldwide.

"Intel has raised the bar for desktop gaming with the new 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor. Based on the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K architecture, it's the world's best gaming desktop processor made even better and created specifically for extreme gamers who want the most performance possible. This processor demonstrates another innovation milestone for Intel, following last year's limited edition 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8086K," said Frank Soqui, Intel vice president and general manager of the Desktop, Workstation and Channel Group. The i9-9900KS processor is unlocked and boasts eight cores and 16 threads, up to 4.00 GHz base frequency, 127 W TDP, 16 MB Intel Smart Cache, and up to 40 platform PCIe lanes for gaming and overclocking.



Key Features and Capabilities:
  • Up to 5.00 GHz all-core turbo frequency; up to 4.00 GHz base frequency, which allow games to run faster when they scale across more cores for higher frame rates
  • Eight cores, 16 threads, 127 W TDP, 16 MB Intel Smart Cache, and up to 40 platform PCIe lanes
  • Compatible with existing Z390 motherboards
  • Up to 27% faster mega-tasking when you simultaneously game, stream and record compared with a 3-year-old PC
  • Up to 35% more frames per second compared with a 3-year-old PC
  • Up to 17% faster 4K video editing compared with the previous generation and up to 78% faster compared with a 3-year-old PC
  • One-year warranty
  • Overclock confidently with new and enhanced features like Intel Performance Maximizer, which makes it easy to dynamically and reliably custom-tune the unlocked processor based on the processor's individual performance DNA
Gamers and overclocking enthusiasts will be able to take performance to the max with the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor. Only select chips from Intel wafers can achieve this specification to run up to 5.00 GHz all-core turbo. Quantity is limited for this special edition product.

*yawn*

3 year old PC could mean anything from a i7-7700K and GTX 1080 Ti to an i3-7100 and GT 1030.

Also that 127W TDP. Intel needs to drop Skylake and move on.

Boring. I haven't actually seen a single 9900K not able to OC to all cores 5.0GHz.

I wonder how far you could push it with some OC? It's going to suck some power though....
If they lowered the price a little more, I could see this selling good.

Up to 5 ghz? was the entire point of this re-release not that 5ghz all cores was guaranteed?

Also why the F are they comparing performance to a "3 year old PC"?!?
not even mentioning we have no clue what kinda build this 3 year old pc they are comparing it with is.....
(EDIT, fine print sheds a bit more light on what the build was, still does not make sense to compare it to that though)

"Compatible with existing Z390 motherboards"
that is a key feature/capability?! what?
can you imagine the sh!tstorm if it wasnt... and what would it be compatible with then? its not like anything new is out.

Honestly if they put stuff like that in there you might as well say it has pads to make contact with the motherboard and comes with an IHS....

1 - can't you just OC the 9900k?
2 - doesn't the 9700k give you the exact same performance for less

advertised = 127w, real = 327w.

However, I would really like some information on this supposed "(faster)compared with a 3-year-old PC" - as stated earlier by @sam_86314, it could very well be a 7100T being compared - the statement Intel made needs clarification.

I think it's their way of saying "don't expect support for B360." I wonder if Z370 is supported, because there are some pretty expensive Z370 boards.

Great warranty, considering these chips are cream of the crop and that the i7-8086K comes with 3-year.

It's compared to a 6700k. Videocardz has the fine print, not sure why the TPU one doesn't... https://videocardz.com/press-release/intel-announces-core-i9-9900ks-special-edition-for-513-usd

up to 4.00 GHz base frequency
Everyone seems to be missing that not even base clock seems to be guaranteed part of spec any more...

One-year warranty
Down from 3 btw...

And also in the fine print as expected:
Performance results are based on testing as of August 10, 2019 and may not reflect all publicly available security updates.
Overall this is even worse than I had expected, and this thing was already a joke from it's inception.

It's 4GHz on all cores guaranteed. That's also what the 127W rating is for.

You want more than 4GHz?

MOAR POWER. POWER OVERWHELMING. MY LIFE FOR AIUR INTEL.

They must distribute it as a loot box. You buying box with 9900K"?" and some of them may contain this "best gaming desktop processor made even better" which is better then 3-year-old PC.

Well I get that it might not be on other platforms, but its not what one would call a Key Feature or a Capability of a product, or am I just crazy?
Just weird to put that in that list like that.
Sure the information should be somewhere in the text as to what motherboard it will work on, just not in that list.

Congrats on overclocking your own chip a bit more with a lot of unverified info thrown in, like a pinch of salt in the ocean I'm sure it will be slightly more salty.

Also, their poor PR department must have been on fire while trying to write that travesty of word vomit.

Really? No, because they're planning to bin the 9900KS and 3950X :roll:
Yup, don't let the crazy high 9900KS TDP put you off. That's only an average rating at stock out of the box, with no bios settings added.

Drop into bios, make a few simple adjustments and a really sweet 9900KS binned at 5.1GHz on a Hero XI - same chip binned at 5.3Ghz by Siliconlottery.com on an Maximus Apex XI board will run with MUCH lower voltage and MUCH lower thermals than an average clocking 9900K.

And of course his testing is rigorous, that 5.3Ghz 9900KS/Apex XI CPU is going to run all day with simple workloads easily at 5.4Ghz all 8cores/16threads.

Wish we had more coming from Intel, but unfortunately we still have to wait until next year. :oops:

Below is an AIDA 64 memory latency score of 34.6ns the SL dude sent me of the Super-Binned 9900K 5.1Ghz Hero XI - 5.3Ghz Apex XI CPUs running Trident Z 4800Mhz XMP.

Intel bins them once to get the 9900K, then Intel bins them twice to get 9900KS samples, then SL bins once at 5.1 Hero XI, then bins twice with the 5.3 Apex XI.

Binned 4times(4X) to find that small percentage of 9900KS capable of 5.3Ghz. :clap:


LOOK also, at those extremely high Read Write and Copy scores the SL dood achieved! Mind-blowing. :eek:
