Intel i9 9900ks
According to new details from US retailers, the upcoming Intel Core i9 9900KS will be priced at approximately $600. To be precise, the Core i9 9900KS is priced at $603.66 or higher, and the details are selected by Twitter user Momomo_US. The
CPU is expected to be Intel’s direct response to AMD’s higher Ryzen 9 3950X. It uses the same 14nm Coffee Lake architecture as the existing i9 9900KS, but because it is located in the trash can, the clock speed is increased to 5GHz through the all-core Turbo design. In contrast, Core i9 9900K only provides 5 GHz as a single-core boost. The price tag of US$
will make it significantly cheaper than AMD’s chip, which is priced at US$749.
As for the impact of the boost speed adjustment, it is difficult to say without testing the chip itself, but it is expected that the impact on the gaming platform will not be too great. This is due to the high number of cores in many engines.
Multithreaded processes can benefit, but the inherent limitation of how many threads can be used at the same time can make tangible performance improvements difficult. In other words, the impact of these high-end CPUs on the gaming experience is limited.
The fact that it appears on a US retailer's website is good news for those who think that the Intel Core i9 9900KS may never appear, because the manufacturer's problem is related to pumping out enough chips 14 nanometers.
For now, the Intel i9 9900KS is expected to launch next month, priced at $ 600, it's an attractive alternative to AMD's similar high-core Ryzen 9 3950X.
