The i9-9900KS teased earlier this year at Computex now finally has a release date. Intel announced that its new flagship, the 9900KS will launch tomorrow on October 30th. Featuring a whopping 5GHz across all 8 cores, it definitely is one-of-a-kind. This will definitely boost gaming performance by a huge margin. There are already a few benchmarks available. However, we will only know the full extent of its performance after it launches.

Compared to the current 9900KF flagship, the 9900KS costs only around $25 more. Performance-wise, the KS offers a 300MHz all core turbo- boost compared to the 4.7GHz of the KF. On paper, the 9900KF offers 15% better performance per dollar compared to the KS. However, if you really need the most that you can, the KS is your CPU.

Moreover, it also includes a one-year warranty. Since it comes factory overclocked and is highly binned, you can probably even get it running at a higher boost speed. I’m personally looking forward to professional overclockers have a field day with it. Just remember to get a flagship AIO as well.

The 9900KS is an 8-Core/16-Thread processor with a 127W TDP. It has a base clock of 4.0 GHz and a boost clock of 5.0 GHz. It is compatible with Z390 motherboards and will launch tomorrow. Keep in mind this is an exclusive processor and will be available in limited quantities.

I've damaged way too many processors than I'd like to admit. Music and Sim Racing keep me sane; that is until I get a strange itch to tinker with stuff again.
