Newegg lists the Intel Core i9-12900KS for $799 after which takes it down
In temporary: All the experiences in regards to the Intel Core i9-12900KS we have heard have already painted a fairly good image of what the CPU will provide. Still, the Newegg itemizing that was simply noticed reveals new particulars that we had been not sure about, together with the utmost increase clock for the E-cores. Unfortunately, the processor itemizing has since been eliminated.
Going to the just lately spotted Newegg itemizing of the Intel Core i9-12900KS will provide you with a message stating the positioning could not discover the merchandise. However, because of the facility of the Wayback Machine, we will nonetheless entry a cached model of the web page.
According to the itemizing, Newegg would promote the Core i9-12900KS for $799, placing it $185 above the i9-12900K. Considering the marginally increased clocks and the brand new increase expertise it options (Enhanced Thermal Velocity Boost), that is a substantial value bump.
If you have been taking note of the experiences, chances are you’ll already know the brand new Intel flagship mainstream processor is a binned model of the i9-12900K. It’s a hybrid processor with eight efficiency cores, eight effectivity cores, and 24 threads. Rumors point out the P-cores function a base clock of three.4GHz, able to boosting as much as 5.2GHz throughout all cores and 5.5GHz on one/two cores. The E-cores ought to have a 2.5GHz base clock frequency, going as much as 4.0GHz as wanted.

Like the usual i9-12900K, this processor will function 14MB L2 cache, 30MB L3 cache, and UHD Graphics 770 iGPU. However, its TDP/PBP is predicted to extend from 125W to 150W, though the MTP could keep at 241W (rumors pointed to 260W). In addition, going past the 5.2/5.5GHz clock shall be attainable with a correct cooling answer, as will probably be overclockable.

Assuming the specs are appropriate and based mostly on the early Geekbench 5 entries, we consider the brand new Intel processor shall be barely higher than the i9-12900K/12900KF chips. Still, many will in all probability suppose that the slight efficiency bump is not value the additional price. After all, you may be paying 30% extra for a single-digit efficiency increase, which does not appear to be a very good deal.
