to report WccfTech The latest benchmark of the six-GHz Intel Core i9-13900KS Raptor Lake processor has been revealed and shows up to 15 percent improvement over the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X. The Intel Core i9-13900KS will be the world’s first 6GHz desktop processor, which seems to be 15% ahead of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X so far. This processor is supposed to be released on January 12 (December 22).
- Intel works on a laptop processor Core i9 13980HX with 24 cores and a frequency of 5.6 GHz.
Intel Core i9-13900KS processor, the first 6 GHz chip
The Intel Core i9-13900KS processor will be the flagship of the Raptor Lake lineup and has 24 cores and 32 threads in 8P-Core and 16E-Core configurations. The 13900KS processor can boost the frequency up to 6 GHz with “Thermal Speed Boost”, which makes it the first chip to get this frequency out of the box. The processor has a Turbo Boost Max frequency of up to 5.8 GHz while the P-Cores run at a standard Turbo Boost frequency of up to 5.4 GHz while the E-Cores run up to 4.3 GHz.
- Core i9-13900KS 8+16 (24/32) –3.2 / 6.0 GHz – 66 MB Cache, 150W (PL1) / 253W (PL2)
- Core i9-12900KS 8+8 (16/24) –3.4 / 5.5 GHz – 30 MB Cache, 125W (PL1) / 241W (PL2)
The Intel Core i9-13900KS processor will have 68MB of combined cache and 150W PL1 rating, which can go up to 253W and even beyond using extreme power profile modes.

Graph obtained from multi-core benchmarks
In terms of single-threaded performance, the Intel Core i9-13900KS processor is fifteen percent better than the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and five percent better than the Core i9-13900K. In multithreading tests, this processor improved by eight percent over the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and three percent over the Core i9-13900K. While this isn’t a significant increase over the Core i9-13900K, the gold silicon makes it a very attractive processor for extreme overclockers and power enthusiasts.
Core i9-13900KS is a processor with limited production and high price
At the moment, the Core i9-13900KS is by no means a cheap processor and will definitely cost between $100 and $200 more than the Core i9-13900K, while also consuming much more power. This is exactly why this chip will have a limited production run and its production volume will not be the same as the Core i9-13900K processor.
As mentioned, this processor will have limited customers such as extreme overclockers, because the cost and power consumption ratio will make it an unreasonable processor. Finally, it can be said that Intel plans to show its superiority over its red-faced competitor by releasing this processor.
