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.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
