Yesterday, Intel announced many new 13th Gen processors for desktop computers and mobile devices, such as laptops and tablets. Interestingly, the company did not reveal a new KS or "special edition" CPU. Intel's chips with the KS moniker traditionally feature record-breaking out-of-the-box clocks and higher TDP for more power. The upcoming Intel Core i9-13900KS is no exception.

A Chinese retail store has spilled the beans on the new flagship CPU from Intel. The Core i9-13900KS will bring 6GHz clocks, more efficient cores, and improved memory support compared to the previous-gen Intel Core i9-12900KS. Here is how the upcoming model compares to other CPUs:

Unconfirmed rumors claim (via Videocardz) Intel plans to launch the Core i9-13900KS on January 12, 2023. Price-wise, expect the faster model to cost more. The processor briefly appeared in one French store for €949 ($1,007), which is €180 ($191) more than the standard Intel Core i9-13900K ($599 in the US).
