Unveiling!

An updated version of Intel’s Core i9-12900KS processor was unveiled at CES 2022. On a single-core, the Intel Core ‘Alder Lake’ 12th generation processor has a peak clock rate of 5.5GHz.

Features

Even when doing demanding multi-core work, the newest Intel Core i9-12900KS can run at 5.2GHz on any and every core, per the firm.  Since the Core i9-9900KS in 2019, this is Intel’s first Special Edition desktop CPU, and the firm says it will be offered to producers in the first quarter of 2022 (Q1 2022).

The latest Intel Core i9-12900K chipset has the same number of operational cores as the Core i9-12900K and eight efficiency cores. As per Intel, the Alder Lake Intel Core i9-12900KS is up to 40% faster than the previous version.

Gaming Factor

The CPU was also seen operating Hitman 3 at CES 2022, with all eight operational cores clocking in at 5.2GHz at the same time. The upcoming Intel Core i9-12900KS is yet to be revealed in terms of how much energy it will use or how much it will charge.

A high-performance Special Edition processor, the Intel Core i9-12900KS follows the Intel Core i9-9900KS. It was unveiled at Computex 2019. Intel’s 9th generation ‘Ice Lake’ 10nm CPUs allowed customers to increase their CPUs to 5.0GHz on each core, as many of you may remember from that generation.

Intel’s Rocket Lake chips have been successfully overclocked to 7GHz.

Like its antecedent, the latest Core i9-12900KS has a single-core clock speed of 5.5GHz and the capacity to maintain 5.2GHz on all sides, notably during gaming, unlike its forerunner.

AMD vs Intel

Companies will get access to the new Intel Core i9-12900KS in Q1 of 2022, according to the firm. The new Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition CPU will be available for acquisition in major retailers, as was the case with the prior model.

It will go up against AMD’s new Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which was also announced at CES and has been proven to outperform the Intel Core i9-12900K in several gaming benchmark tests (Dilema, 2022).
