Running all cores at 5.0GHz Turbo

At the pre-IFA show held in Berlin, Intel has now officially announced that the special edition Core i9-9900KS, one running all cores at 5.0GHz Turbo, will be launching next month.

Back at Computex, Intel already revealed some information regarding this CPU, including the fact that it will pretty much be the Core i9-9990K, coming with 8-cores and 16-threads, but with a higher base clock and running all cores at 5.0GHz Turbo clock. Just like the Core i9-9900K, it will end up with UHD 630 IGP, but the actual TDP and the price are still unknown.

Intel is obviously targeting gamers with Core i9-9900KS and claims that it should offer "better and more consistent" frame rates.

With the Core i9-9900K hitting close to $500 in retail, it will be interesting to see what kind of price-premium will Intel ask for running all cores at 5.0GHz, but we guess we will know soon enough.
