Intel Reveals 8 Core I9-9900KS with 5.0 GHz Boost on all Cores at Computex 2019
In Computex 2018, Intel used an industrial type water cooler to show case a 28-core CPU demo running at 5GHz across all cores making everyone ponder if that type of processer will ever be available at a more end user friendly application. Today, an Intel CPU boosting 5GHz across all cores at the same time is finally a reality as Intel announces the new Core i9-9900KS - a binned version of their standard Core i9-9900K 8-Core/16-thread processor.
Intel did not announce any pricing nor did they disclose any additional specifications such as the TDP of their new Core i9-9900KS. What is known is that the new special edition Core i9-9900KS is soldered to its Integrated Heat Spreader (HIS), use the same UHD 630 IGP, will be running at a base clock of 4.0GHz, will not include a CPU cooler and can be cooled with an off the shelf 3rd party closed loop water cooler.
