The Core i9-12900KS CPU from Intel 

 Intel has unveiled its new Core i9-12900KS processor, an unlocked version of its flagship Core i9-12900K processor that boosts the maximum increased clock speed to 5.5GHz for "the world's fastest desktop CPU" and "the best gaming experience," according to the firm.

The Core i9-12900KS shares a lot of hardware with its predecessors, including 16 cores (divided between eight performance and eight efficient cores), 24 threads, and 30MB of L3 cache memory.

  However, Intel increased the basic power from 125W to 150W and enabled the Core i9-12900KS to operate unlocked, allowing it to reach 5.5GHz on up to two cores (compared to 5.2GHz on the regular Core i9-12900).

For those keeping track at home, AMD also recently claimed the title of "world's fastest gaming CPU" when it announced the release of its new Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor earlier in March. AMD, like Intel, is releasing a beefed-up version of an older model (in this case, the Ryzen 7 5800), but AMD's differs in that it uses a new 3D V-Cache technology to achieve speeds that AMD claims can beat the Core i9-12900K.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is much less expensive than the Core i9-12900KS, with an MSRP of $449 versus Intel's $739. However, Intel outperforms AMD on pure processing frequency, with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D boasting a maximum boosted speed of 4.5GHz compared to Intel's new chip's 5.5GHz maximum speed.

How does the Ryzen 7 5800X3D compare to its predecessors?

 The recently announced Core i9-12900KS, on the other hand, will have to wait until April for both chips to arrive and be pitted against one another.

 AMD will get a second chance at the title later this year, when its Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs come out in the second half of 2022.

Starting April 5th, the Core i9-12900KS will be available at a suggested retail price of $739. 

This is a huge rise above Intel's suggested price of $589 for the Core i9-12900K, which is nearly impossible to buy at Intel's suggested price today (most shops charge at least $600, if not more). 

To put it another way, you should anticipate paying more than $739 for the Core i9-12900KS when it ships next month.
