The new i9-12900KS processor is a beast when it comes to speed. Compared to the previous model, this one can push the frequency on up to two cores to a blazing 5.5GHz. The base power has also been increased from 125W to 150W.
The Core i9-12900Ks has twice the performance of its predecessor, making it the fastest desktop processor ever built. That kind of innovation is what keeps the company on top, and they’re ready to take it to the next level.
With unprecedented power at your disposal to create, play, stream and edit the content on a single chip, it’s got the power to do almost anything you want — from gaming in 4K to editing 8K video in real-time.
AMD’s cutting down on Intel’s lead in the battle of the high-end desktop processors with its newest Ryzen 7 5800X3D chip. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is priced at $449 notably cheaper than Intel’s Core i9-12900KS which will be available at $739.
But the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D chip only has a maximum boosted clock speed of 4.5GHz, compared with the competing Intel Core i9-12900KS’s maximum boosted clock speed of 5.5GHz. But even with a lower clock speed.
So, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is for the customer who wants to buy a processor that offers the super-fast processing power of the Core i9-12900KS at a fraction of the price.
Intel’s new Core i9-12900KS is scheduled to launch on April 5th at an unusually high price of $739. While AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D chip is also coming in the month of April but with the price tag of $449.
