Intel Could Launch the Core i9-14900KS in March

Intel Core i9-14900KS: Potential March Launch and Benchmark Performance

Intel launched its 14th generation of Core CPUs back in October last year. The lineup, up until now, includes several processors—these range from low-end Intel Core i3 CPUs to higher-end Core i9 ones. In recent news, Intel will supposedly launch one more model in the Core i9 series — Core i9-14900KS.

Intel Core i9-14900KS Spotted on Benchmark Site

A few days ago, the Intel Core i9-14900KS was spotted on a benchmark site. As per the site, this chip is manufactured for the LGA1700 socket. It will also reportedly feature a total of 24 physical cores. Out of these 24, 8 are performance cores, or P-cores. The other 16 are efficiency cores or E-cores.

To give context, the performance cores are responsible for intense tasks, while the efficiency cores manage the light tasks. This is part of Intel’s hybrid core architecture, which they introduced with their 12th Gen Intel Core CPUs. This new architecture helps improve battery life to a great extent.


Other aspects of the Intel Core i9-14900KS include a base clock frequency of 3.2 GHz. The boost clock frequency touches a whopping 6.2 GHz. This CPU’s thermal design power (TDP) is also rated at 150W. On top of that, the benchmark site previously mentioned also revealed that the CPU can draw up to more than 400W of power when subjected to high loads.

In case you did not know, the KS version of Intel CPUs is the highest end in their lineups. It also comes with an integrated graphics card, unlike the KF version. We have compared the Intel Core i9-14900KS with its predecessors from the past two years.

  • Intel Core i9-12900KS: 16 cores (8 P-cores, 8 E-cores), 5.5 GHz boost clock frequency, 150W TDP (base), 241W TDP (boost)
  • Intel Core i9-13900KS: 24 cores (8 P-cores, 16 E-cores), 6.0 GHz boost clock frequency, 150W TDP (base), 253W TDP (boost)
  • Intel Core i9-14900KS: 24 cores (8 P-cores, 16 E-cores), 6.2 GHz boost clock frequency, 150W TDP (base), 409W TDP (boost)

Expected Price and Release Timeline

While Intel has not revealed the exact dates, earlier rumors speculated the launch would be in the first quarter of 2024. Newer rumors have narrowed it down to around the middle of March 2024.

As for the price, there is not much information available. However, looking at the pricing trends of other CPUs, we can expect it to come with a price tag of around $700, give or take $30. Note that this information is based on leaks, rumors, and speculations. So, you might see slight variances in the final product.
