Intel’s upcoming flagship Core i9-13900KS will boast a processor base power (PBP) of 150W. The chip manufacturer more or less consciously confirmed this by introducing CPU-Z, which can be seen in the video of the Core i9-13900K 9 GHz OC world record.
In the spring, Intel released a very big fish with the Core i9-13900KS, which should be able to clock up to 6GHz under normal conditions, CEO Pat Gelsinger promised in September this year. This will likely deal with AMD’s Zen 4 CPUs with 3D V-Cache, of which the rumor mill has three models on the list.
9 GHz OC World Record video confirms the PBP of the 13900KS
The Core i9-13900KS has not yet been officially launched, so the specifications of the upcoming Raptor Lake flagship are still a matter of speculation. But what can now be considered certain is the power consumption, more precisely the core performance of the processor or more formally the processor base power, PBP. It’s 150 watts, which can be seen in Intel’s video of the recent 9GHz world overclocking record for the Core i9-13900K. In it, the CPU appears twice, and the CPU-Z entry confirms the value of 150 watts in power consumption.
However, Max TDP specified that there is no Maximum Turbo Performance, or Max Turbo Power officially, MTP, as it would certainly be much higher. However, the name of the CPU on CPU-Z is Core i9-13900K, while the specs list 13900KS. In this context, Videocardz points out that this should be a pre-made version of the existing desktop model.
It is not yet known when the CPU will officially appear. January 12th seems to be rumored as a possible date. It is likely that the Core i9-13900KS will be presented along with other models of the 13th generation of processors from Intel as part of CES 2023, which is scheduled for the first week of January next year.
