Intel is planning to release the Core i9-14900KS processor on March 14, according to VideoCardz.

The Core i9-14900KS joins the lineup alongside its predecessors, the Core i9-12900KS and Core i9-13900KS, which were released on April 5, 2022 and January 12, 2023, respectively. Unlike its predecessors, the i9-14900KS reportedly boasts a higher clock speed of up to 6.2GHz (instead of 6.0GHz) on two cores, which was previously spotted in a leak in late February along with Lunar Lake processors for laptops. The Core i9-14900KS is also expected to run at up to 5.9 GHz on all P cores and 4.5 GHz on E cores.

One of the important aspects of the Intel Core i9-14900KS is its price, which is reportedly around $740, which is about 30% higher than the current flagship i9-14900K. Despite the higher price, the i9-14900KS promises significant performance improvements, making it an attractive option for enthusiasts and power users.

In terms of specs, the i9-14900KS is based on the Raptor Lake Refresh architecture and features 8 performance cores (P) and 16 efficient cores (E), giving a total of 24 cores and 32 threads. It is equipped with 36 MB of L3 cache and 32 MB of L2 cache, which provides sufficient memory for demanding tasks and multitasking scenarios. In addition, the maximum thermal design power (TDP) is likely to be increased from 125W to 150W for the upcoming i9-14900K.

This processor will be the latest addition to Intel‘s LGA-1700 platform and marks the end of an era where the last processor used the old naming convention for desktop processors. In the future, starting with the 15th generation of Arrow Lake processors by the end of this year, it will be replaced by the LGA-1851 socket.
