A benchmark database of Geekbench 5 is presenting Intel’s first processor capable of running at 6 GHz called the Core i9-13900KS. As for the performance from the point of view of running points, its multi-thread performance is 10% higher than that of 13900K, and its single-thread performance can also be 5% higher than that of 13900K.
There are a total of 24 cores and 32 threads in the Intel Core i9-13900KS chip, which is composed of 8 P cores and 16 E cores. With a “Thermal Velocity Boost” frequency of 6 GHz, and a “Turbo Boost Max” frequency of 5.8 GHz, the processor can reach speeds of up to 5.4 GHz and 4.3 GHz for P cores, and 4.4 GHz for E cores.
It is powered by a Core i9-13900KS 8+16 (24/32) – 3.2 / 6.0 GHz – 66 MB cache – 150W (PL1) / 253W (PL2) power supply
There are two different versions of the Core i9-12900KS 8+8 (16/24) – 3.4 GHz / 5.5 GHz – 30 MB cache, 125W (PL1) or 241W (PL2)
A five-fold increase in performance over 13900K in Geekbench
When fully loaded, the PL1 processor is equipped with 68 MB of cache, and its PL1 power rating can reach 150W, and it can reach 253W or more when fully loaded with all of its features. This CPU is expected to hit the retail market in early 2023. The retail price will be $799 (approximately RMB 5,569), and there are a limited number of units available.
As far as single-core performance is concerned, this CPU is 10% faster than the i9-12900KS, and as far as multi-threaded performance is concerned, this CPU is 40% faster than the i9-12900KS.
It should be noted that even though the Core i9-13900KS is a $100-200 more expensive chip than the Core i9-13900K and has a higher amount of power, it will be the first processor that is capable of reaching a frequency of 6GHz by default. The industry considers it to be of great importance.
