ComputeX 2019: Intel released 8 Core i9-9900KS

Just a few hours before AMD's presentation, Intel has announced the Core i9-9900KS: The Octacore processor runs at 5 GHz, the necessary power consumption but conceals the manufacturer.

Intel unveiled the Core i9-9900KS in late Sunday evening in Taiwan, making it clear just hours before AMD's Computex 2019 event: Intel rates the Ryzen 3000 alias Matisse as a fierce competitor. Because unlike the Core i9-9900K (test) at 3.6 to 5 GHz, the Core i9-9900KS runs at 4 GHz to 5 GHz - with all cores of the processor clocking at 5 GHz instead of 4.7 GHz. As Computerbase reports, Intel carefully bins to reach those frequencies.

However, it remains unclear for the time being to which thermal power loss the new Core i9-9900KS will be adjusted. The power limit decides whether the chip can hold the Turbo Boost under load at all. Even 4GHz on all 8 Core are not included in typical 95W for a Core i9-9900K in some applications, and the Core i9-9900KS for a full 5GHz may easily require 200W. Intel has not yet commented on the price and availability of the Special Edition.

The previous Core i9-9900K is the fastest chip on the market for applications that only use comparatively few threads. With strong multithreading, however, AMD's current Ryzen 7 2700X (test) often sticks, the Ryzen 3000 aka Matisse's successors should be higher in frequency and power per clock. AMD uses 7nm rather than 12nm CPU chiplets and the Zen 2 architecture. This has improvements like a floating point unit twice as wide.

As the date for the Ryzen 3000 July 2019 is in discussion, being open, whether AMD starts with an eight-core or directly with a 12- or even 16-core top model.

The Core i9-9900KS should appear in the fourth quarter of 2019, said Intel's Greg Bryant at the Intel Keynote.
