Intel Core i9-13900KS: 24 cores and 6 GHz to launch next week
The CPU made a brief appearance on a Chinese retail website.
The news was picked up by @wnxod, who uncovered Intel’s flagship 24-core desktop CPU on a Chinese website. The contents appear to be identical to Intel’s official materials, which are used on the JD retail platform. The Core i9-13900KS is no longer mentioned, but thanks to the user, we now have confirmation on the processor box design and basic stats.
The package appears similar to the Core i9-13900K, and the plastic wafer inside is the same colour. The only difference is the label ‘Special Edition,’ which is written in Chinese this time. This is comparable to the previous-generation Special Edition CPU, which is used by Intel for comparison.

The Core i9-12900KS is a 16-core model with higher clock speeds of 5.5 GHz and a default TDP of 150W. The same TDP will apply to the Core i9-13900KS, except that this CPU will have eight additional Efficient cores (for a total of 24 cores) and higher clock speeds, reaching up to 6.0 GHz.
We already know more about this future chip, such as the fact that it will feature a faster base speed of 3.2 GHz than the i9-13900K, which is 3.0 GHz. Surprisingly, no adjustments will be made to the Efficient core frequency.

According to speculations, the Core i9-13900KS will be available on January 12th. Despite the fact that a bigger number of 13th Generation Core desktop CPUs were revealed today, Intel has yet to reveal the KS variant.
Update: The CPU is already available in France for €949.96. This means it is €180 more expensive than the Core i9-13900K at the same shop.
