Intel showcases their first 6GHz Out of the box processor
Intel's i9-13900K is no longer the company's fastest processor. That accolade is now held by Intel's i9-13900KS, a limited edition CPU that Intel first teased in September 2022. This new CPU is a hyper-tuned Raptor Lake processor that can achieve 6GHz boost clock speeds out of the box using mainstream cooling solutions. Intel has now demoed this processor, showcasing the i9-13900KS' ultra-high boost clock speeds in action.
In the demo video below, Intel's Gaming Technical Marketing Lead, Jason Xie, showcases their i9-13900KS processor when used with a Corsair All-In-One liquid cooling solution. This demo confirms Intel's claim that their newest i9 processor can deliver 6GHz speeds, enabling their i9-13900KS to deliver a notable performance bump over their existing i9-13900K processor.
Currently, it is unknown how much Intel's limited edition KS series processor will cost, though we expect it to have a significant price premium over the company's standard i9-13900K. Intel's last-generation i9-12900KS had a $150 premium over its standard counterpart, so don't expect Intel's i9-13900KS CPU to be cheap.
Intel's i9-13900KS is a Limited Edition processor that is designed to do one thing, push Intel's Raptor Lake silicon to its limits. With this new processor, Intel wants to secure for themselves a leadership position within the mainstream CPU market, crabbing headlines by delivering performance levels that exceed that of their competition in many areas.
Intel plans to launch their i9-13900KS processor soon, but be aware that the i9-13900KS is a limited edition processor, so don't expect retail stocks of this processors to last for long.

All this willy waving is fine and all, but next year AMD will beat it, then Intel will beat AMD and so on ad infinitum.
It's redundant. At least the consumer benefits.
