The price range of the Intel Core i9-9900KS processor is around $600
- Intel’s 5 GHz Core i9-9900KS processor ships next month
MWave online retailer, based in Australia Core processor The i9-9900KS, which Intel introduced earlier this year during the Computex 2019 event, has been included in its product list. Of course, the aforementioned processor is only included in this list, but there is no news of its sale. The listing published by the store shows a price tag of A$899 for the Core i9-9900KS processor with the product code BX80684I99900KS, which is equivalent to $605. It is America.
The new Intel chip in the number of processing cores, basically no difference with Core i9-9900K processor does not have Coffee Lake series and both have 8 processing cores; The main difference between these processors is the basic processing frequency in the new Core i9-9900KS chip, which is 400 MHz higher and is equivalent to 4 GHz. In the case that all the cores are boosted, the processing frequency of the Core i9-9900KS chip is increased by 300 MHz compared to the series flagship. Intel’s K is around 5 GHz; But the maximum turbo frequency in both processors is the same and is 5 GHz.
Just a week ago, Asus published a note regarding the BIOS update in its future motherboards, in which the thermal design power (TDP) of the processor The Core i9-9900KS was listed at 127 watts. Thanks to the new Intel processor and its high clock speed, this company will be able to keep the crown of the best performance in gaming. Considering that the biggest improvements in boost frequency are in multi-core workloads and the single-threaded clock rates are on par with the Core i9-9900K chip, the speculation is that the new Intel processor is not a big deal and won’t make a significant difference. .
Certainly, the Core i9-9900KS chip will show a lower score in the Cinebench benchmark in competition with the Ryzen 9 3900X processor, which is also $100 cheaper. gave After all, the limited thermal design power of 127 watts for this processor means that the maximum frequency of 5 GHz in the boost mode of all eight cores will only be active for a short time and will not last long.
The third level (L3) cache memory in this chip is equal to 16 MB and Its integrated graphics chip is UHD 630 GT2. The Core i9-9900KS processor supports memory DDR4 RAM with a frequency of 2666 MHz, and the use of IHS type soldering, which we also saw in previous chips, promises improvements in the heating of this processor. As mentioned earlier, online retailer MWave listed the chip without giving any details. A user with the username momomo_us also mentioned on Twitter the selling price of this product for $603, including sales tax, at an unspecified store.
Intel will release the Core i9 9900KS processor in October. The specifications of this processor were already known, but there were doubts about the price of this CPU and the thermal design power of the mentioned product.
