Intel has broken another speed record with its latest desktop CPU. The company’s new Core i9-14900KS processor can reach speeds of up to 6.2GHz without overclocking, making it the fastest desktop CPU available to PC enthusiasts. The milestone beats another Intel record from last year, where its last processor maxed out at a still impressive 6GHz.

In addition to record-breaking clock speed, the i9-14900KS also boasts a 24-core, 32-thread architecture along with a 36 megabyte Smart Cache, which is a proprietary Intel technology that shares cache memory between the different cores. Intel says the feature allows for “powerful performance in gaming and content creation workloads”.

The i9-14900K also makes use of Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost, which is a feature of 11th generation and later Intel Core chips that maxes out the clock frequency by 100 MHz when temperatures are below 70 degrees C, or 158 degrees F.

As for real-world statistics, the company is confident that gamers will enjoy up to 15% better performance. Content creators will also be happy to hear that complex workflows will receive a massive 73% boost. The i9-14900KS is compatible with the latest Z790 and Z690 motherboards, but Intel recommends ensuring the bios is updated to ensure optimum results.

Although the speed of Intel’s i9 is impressive, a team from ASUS ROG has already claimed another four world records by overclocking the new chip, pushing the CPU to a frankly astounding 9.1 GHz.

The Core i9-14900KS is available from stores today and starts at $700. The chip will be available for DIY PC builders as a standalone item but should soon find its way into OEM systems very soon.
