Intel releases its latest 13th generation CPU, boasting a maximum turbo frequency of 6GHz at stock speeds.

Intel has released its fastest desktop processor yet, the Core i9-13900KS, which is capable of reaching speeds of 6GHz at stock speeds for the first time. This new processor is an upgrade from the 13th Gen Core i9-13900K, which had a turbo frequency of 5.8GHz. The i9-13900KS is available for purchase in stores today, and is priced at $699.

The new processor utilizes Intel's Thermal Velocity Boost technology, allowing it to reach the 6GHz barrier without the need for overclocking, thus improving PC gaming performance. However, this increase in speed is achieved by using more power, with the base power of the 13900K being 125 watts, which has been increased to 150 watts on the 13900KS. At max turbo power, it will reach slightly above 250 watts, similar to the 13900K.

The Intel Core i9-13900KS is similar to the 13900K, but with a few key differences. The base frequency has been increased to 3.2GHz, up from 3GHz on the 13900K. Both CPUs have 24 cores (8 performance and 16 efficiency cores), 32 threads, 36MB of Intel Smart Cache, and 20 PCIe lanes (16 PCIe 5 and 4 PCIe 4 lanes).

The 13900KS is compatible with Z790 and Z690 motherboards with a BIOS update, and is now available at retailers for a starting price of $699. However, this release comes just weeks before the launch of AMD's Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs, which promise better performance for gamers and creators.
