Intel’s new high-end processor arrives in March

The Core i9-12900KS is specifically designed against the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D.


Even before CES, the Intel Core i9-12900KS has rumored to appear several times, representing a new pinnacle of development codenamed Alder Lake-S. Although Intel hasn’t officially announced it yet, just ventured it, partners know almost everything about it, making it a relatively ill-kept secret within the industry. However, our specifications can also be found in the table below:

Intel Alder Lake-S – New Desktop Core Generation with GT1 IGP
Type P-core Clock / Maximum clock
E-core Clock / Maximum clock
Number of threads
L3 cache Consumption
i9-12900KS (8P+8E mag) 3,2/5,5 GHz 2,4/4 GHz 24 30 MB 125/241+ W

The development is very similar to the Core i9-12900K. The main difference is in the turbo clocks. On the one hand, E-Cores can reach up to 4 GHz instead of 3.9 GHz, while P-Cores can reach up to 5.2 GHz for all cores, but up to 5.5 GHz with a single core. get. In addition, the power consumption of the PL2 will be greater than 241 watts, but here the operation will already depend on the motherboard, as the processor will stretch in this respect as long as the board used as a companion allows it.

By the way, Intel uses the best-performing Alder Lake-S chips for the Core i9-12900KS, and the selection has already begun.

According to the company’s partners, the start will be in March, but the list price is not yet there, but all we have learned is that the main goal of the Core i9-12900KS is to fight the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, and it will be priced accordingly. These two developments, designed specifically for players, will appear close enough in time, which presupposes an exciting battle.
