Intel confirms i9 12900KS CPU

Intel has confirmed that it will release its new flagship Core i9 12900KS during its CES 2022 presentation. We recently reported on its likely introduction, based on Intel’s teaser tweet, and now it’s confirmed.

12900KS is capable of boosting up to 5.5 GHz on a single P-core and up to 5.2 GHz on all P-cores. Intel stated that it can maintain 5GHz boost clocks in the long run, which is quite impressive and shows that Intel’s production is really underway.

The chip was shown running Hitman 3 along with the HWiNFO monitoring tool. It shows all eight P-cores running at the advertised 5.2 GHz, and the eight E-cores running at 4.0 GHz, a small 100MHz bump above 12900K. The 12900K is already an excellent gaming processor, and once DDR5 stocks stabilize, we are confident that affluent gamers will search for them for their high-end rigs.
