I_Leak_VN also reports that the pricing of the chip is going to be around $765 US in Vietnam so we can expect the $750 US price range for the global markets as revealed in yesterday's listing.

Yeah but it needs 1.5v!  That's a lot of voltage!  Going to need a custom loop for sure to tame that beast.

Images of Intel's upcoming Core i9-14900KS have leaked, including photos of the CPU's retail packaging, and the technical specs revealed in a motherboard BIOS (via @I_Leak_VN on X). The new flagship CPU will seemingly have the same box Intel used for the Core i9-13900K and Core i9-14900K, which features a wafer-shaped plastic case. Additionally, BIOS screenshots indicate that the 14900KS can hit 6.2 GHz on three of its P-cores out-of-the-box, though this will take a shocking 1.5 volts to achieve.

 

The images come courtesy of Asus forum user Pakhtunov, who apparently has access to a Core i9-14900KS before its official launch later this month. The user took a picture of two 14900KS boxes, and although it's hard to see entirely, it appears that the 14900KS will use the same packaging the 14900K did, including the novelty wafer that houses the CPU itself

Micro Center reveals potential $749 MSRP for Intel's upcoming Core i9-14900KS Special Edition CPU

From Tom's Hardware

Quote

Videocardz discovered an early Micro Center listing confirming the price of Intel's upcoming Core i9-14900KS flagship CPU. The new chip will reportedly be priced at $749, $50 more than rumors expected. The CPU's launch date was also revealed as March 14th, four days from this writing.

 

Micro Center's listing is the first US-based listing we've seen for Intel's new Core i9-14900KS. The US-based retailer's pricing matches very closely with pricing from several Canadian and French retailers we covered a few days ago, which had pricing above $715 and below $750. Micro Center's pricing is slightly higher than what we anticipated. Previous rumors indicated that the i9-14900KS would share the same MSRP as its predecessor, which featured a $699 MSRP. But it appears the 14900KS may be priced $50 higher.

 

That said, we still need to take this listing with a grain of salt, as there's a chance Micro Center's pricing is specific to its stores. When other US-based retailers (like Newegg) unveil pricing before the 14900KS debut, we'll know whether or not Micro Center's price is indeed the MSRP.

 

The Micro Center listing also confirms the i9-14900KS' full specifications, featuring a 3.2GHz base clock, 6.2GHz turbo frequency, 8 P-cores, 16 E-cores 32MB of L2 cache, 36MB of L3 cache, and support for DDR4-3200 and DDR5-5600 memory.

Not just custom loop, probably direct die too.

Intel Core i9-14900KS Review: The Last Core i9 Hits Record 6.2 GHz at Stock Settings

 

Quote

Intel's Core i9-14900KS Special Edition processor has the highest clock rate of any desktop PC processor yet, blasting up to 6.2 GHz on two cores and allowing Intel to claim once again that it has the fastest desktop processor in the world. But at $689, the 14900KS is not only Intel's fastest mainstream chip, it's also the priciest. The 14900KS faces off with AMD's brutally competitive Ryzen 7000X3D processors, which still hold the title of the fastest gaming chips around, albeit with a narrowing margin, as Intel seeks to dethrone AMD's top processors on our list of the best CPUs for gaming.

The 14900KS will also be the last Core i9 processor, with Intel shifting to a new branding scheme with its next-gen chips. Like Intel's past Special Edition chips, the Core i9-14900KS is forged from the company's highest-binned silicon to deliver the fastest processing speeds at the lowest possible voltages at any given frequency. This allows it to hit the previously unheard of 6.2 GHz on two cores right out of the box, using conventional cooling. However, Intel throws power consumption out the window to hit peak performance: The 14900KS gobbled up to 325W of power in our testing. 

 
  Price P-Core Base / Boost Clock (GHz) Cores / Threads (P+E) E-Core Base / Boost Clock (GHz) Cache (L2/L3) TDP / PBP / MTP Memory
Core i9-14900K / KF $689 3.2 / 6.2 24 / 32 (8+16) 2.4 / 4.5 68MB (32+36) 150W / 253W / 320W DDR4-3200 / DDR5-5600
Core i9-14900K / KF $589 (K) - $564 (KF) 3.2 / 6.0 24 / 32 (8+16) 2.4 / 4.4 68MB (32+36) 125W / 253W DDR4-3200 / DDR5-5600

The 14900KS is mostly a carbon copy of the standard Core i9-14900K. It has the same physical design with eight threaded P-cores and 16 single-threaded E-cores. The primary difference is that the 14900KS's P-cores have a 200 MHz higher Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB) than the standard 14900K, meaning the chip can hit 6.2 GHz on two cores if it remains under 70C. The P-cores are also 100 MHz faster during standard Turbo Boost 3.0, while the E-cores have a 100 MHz boost clock increase.

The Core i9-14900KS drops into the same platform and supports the same features as the rest of the 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh processors (you can find the deep-dive details here), but there are plenty of special considerations.

...the bare die version, just for you 😉

 

 

Speaking of that...

 

Intel Core i9-14900KS runs at all-core 6 GHz with direct die cooling

 

Quote

Overclocker and tech YouTuber Roman 'Der8auer' Hartung has demonstrated how direct die cooling can enable a 6 GHz overclock on all eight P-cores of an Intel Core i9-14900KS, without thermal throttling. Der8auer used a custom liquid cooling loop that relied on a delidded 14900KS, a CPU water block making direct contact with the CPU die, and liquid metal to get the processor so cool that even nearly 400 watts of power consumption wasn't an issue.

 

Although Intel's Special Edition Core i9-14900KS can hit its incredibly high clock speeds in part thanks to more selective binning, another part of the equation is the processor's power consumption. Its extreme power profile calls for 320 watts, much higher than the 253 watts the 14900K's extreme power profile is rated for. In our testing, we saw the 14900KS consume significantly more power than the 14900K, to the point where even a top-end 360mm AIO liquid cooler couldn't prevent thermal throttling.

 

Der8auer had a very similar experience and showed how performance tapered off over a long period of time with the Core i9-14900KS with a 5.8 GHz overclock on an AIO cooler. Only with a custom water cooler was consistent performance possible, but the overclocking specialist wanted to go further by putting his 14900KS under direct die cooling.
