Core i9-14900KS Appears At French Retailer Sporting 6.2GHz Frequency

Expert Verified By

Incredibly High Price Too!

Intel’s flagship Raptor Lake refresh processor has not been released yet. However, it seems almost ready to hit the market since the Intel Core i9-14900KS has been spotted on a French retailer’s website.

PC21 lists two variants of this process, showing a higher final price for a small bump in performance over the non-KS model.


The boxed variant of this processor costs 640 euros without taxes and 768 euros with taxes.

If we talk about the tray variant, it costs 627 euros without taxes and 752 with taxes. This type of price might be too high, even for enthusiast PC builders, because the Intel Core i9-14900K was around 146 euros cheaper.

It is important to keep in mind that the Intel Core i9 KS was not intended to be a compelling product. At all costs, these CPUs are silicon-squeezed to the limit to attain optimal performance.

This results in extremely high operating temperatures due to the significant energy usage. Such releases are solely beneficial from a marketing standpoint. That is, holding the title of the world’s most capable gaming CPU for an extended period.

For this performance to truly shine when gaming, you should have an excellent cooling system. The Intel Core i9-14900KS uses specific silicon chips known as blackleg silicon, which allows a specific overclocking specification.

This is made easier by the 24-core processor. These are separated into 16 low-power cores (E-Core) and 8 high-performance cores (P-Core). The Turbo frequencies necessary to attain the high-performance are the only distinction between this processor and the Core i9-14900K.

For the higher-end model, the P-Core cores can achieve a turbo frequency of 6.20 GHz, even if both CPUs run at a base frequency of 3.20 GHz. This is 200 MHz faster than the top-of-the-line CPU that the company currently offers.

Meanwhile, the TDP increases to 150W, and the actual consumption surges to a server CPU level when under stress. Overall, it seems Intel is trying its best to make the Intel Core i9-14900KS the best CPU in the market.
