More Specs for Intel's i9-9900KS have been revealed

When Intel revealed their Special Edition i9-9900KS processor, several questions were raised. First, if 5GHz is the all-core boost, what will the base clock speed be, and second, if the all-core boost is 5GHz, what's the single-core boost like? 

We now have answers to both of these questions, with Intel confirming to Computex attendees that their i9-9900KS processor will run with a base clock speed of 4.0GHz and a single-core boost clock speed of 5GHz. Yes, Intel hasn't improved their single-core boost clock speeds with this new iteration of the i9-9900K. 

So what does Intel's 4GHz base clock mean? Nothing really. With Intel's basic BIOS the processor will go down to these clock speeds, but in the real-world, no 3rd party motherboard manufacturer uses Intel's basic BIOS, instead implementing a custom solution which sets the processor's all-core boost as its minimum clock speed. This means that the i9-9900KS should run at 5GHz at all times on high-end motherboards. 

When compared to Intel's standard i9-9900K, Intel has boosted the i9-9900KS' base clock speed by 0.4GHz and its all-core boost clock speeds by 300MHz. The CPU's single-core boost clock speeds remain the same. Intel demoed their i9-9900KS with a closed loop liquid cooler.

Several key pieces of information remain unknown about the i9-9900KS, such as its pricing and TDP. Does this highly binned i9-9900K cost much more than its original iteration, or ship with much higher cooling requirements? I guess we will find out more as Computex progresses.

Intel creating multiple versions of the same cpu, and AMD kicking ass, with loads of new cpus on the way..
Oh, how the tables have turned!Quote

Yeah, that's what binning is. It's not like AMD has several models with the same core counts... wait... they do!

I won't deny that AMD is kicking ass, but everybody bins their products.Quote
