The Intel Core i9-12900K processor is currently the top choice when it comes to consumer desktop chips. This 16-core / 24-thread chip is great for both demanding applications and high-budget games, and represents a solid leap in performance over the previous Blue units. Competition, however, does not think about giving priority to palm trees – not only that, already in the days AMD should show new Ryzen processors with 3D V-Cache memory, thanks to which Intel will again feel threatened. It turns out, however, that the giant from Santa Clara is ready for the Red offensive. The answer is to be the even faster Core i9 chip, which will provide record clock speeds.
A screen from HWINFO has just appeared on Intel’s twitter account, showing a system with a single-core clock at a default unprecedented level of 5.5 GHz. Its premiere, however, may still be quite distant.
Intel Core i9-12900KS – the even faster flagship Alder Lake is coming. Is this a sufficient response to Ryzen chips with 3D V-Cache?
Some time ago in our pages we mentioned the Intel Core i9-12900KS chip, which is supposed to work at a frequency of 5.2 GHz for all cores. It seems that there was a lot of truth in those reports and the chip is actually being created, which is being shyly announced by Intel itself. On Blue’s twitter account, a screen from HWINFO has just appeared, showing a system with a single-core clock at a default unprecedented level of 5.5 GHz. How do we know it’s the i9-12900KS model? An indication is the number of cores, i.e. 8 P-Core + 8 E-Core.
DDR5 vs DDR4 RAM performance test with Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake processor. Which will be faster when overclocked?
Interestingly, the producer is not going to rush with the premiere of the new fastest Alder Lake. As reported by VideoCardz, referring to its sources, Intel Core i9-12900KS will debut only at the end of the first quarter of this year, although it is possible that this date will still change. As you can see, there is no point in expecting an unexpected premiere at CES 2022. But we have every right to expect that the i9-12900KS will be very expensive and very power-hungry …
