Pushing beyond 6GHz – Intel i9 14900KS leaks with 6.2 GHz turbo
Intel i9-14900KS CPU leaks through benchmarking website
New information about the Intel’s planned i9 14900KS processor has been revealed online. This information comes thanks to OCCT, the PC benchmarking and stability testing tool, as someone has put the CPU though its paces using the tool. This has revealed all of the specifications of Intel’s new KS series processor. Thanks to this, we now know this CPU’s clock speeds and TDP.
Intel’s new KS series CPU is effectively an overclocked i9-14900K processor. It features the same Raptor Lake CPU architecture, the same eight P-cores and sixteen E-cores, and the exact same cache configuration. All that has changes is this CPU’s clock speeds and default TDP. Instead of the i9-14900K’s 125W default TDP, the KS model has been bumped up to 150W. The CPU also boasts a higher boost clock speed of 6.2 GHz. Yes, Intel has pushed past the 6 GHz barrier!
OCCT has identified Intel’s i9-14900KS as a production unit. This suggests that Intel will soon be ready to launch their new KS series CPU. Using OCCT, Intel’s new KS CPU was benchmarked using an MSI MAG Z790 TOMAHAWK motherboard with 32GB of DDR5 memory.

Right now, it is unclear when Intel will release their new i9-14900KS processor. We expect this processor to be revealed relatively soon, as Intel are likely to launch next-generation Arrow Lake processors before the end of 2024. If Intel waits too long, any interest in their 14th generation KS CPU will be dissipated by Arrow Lake hype, or interest in AMD’s next-generation Zen 5 CPUs.
