Incredible performance boost: Core i9-14900KS overclocks to 9.1 GHz and dominates benchmarks

Our colleagues at Tomshardware have reported on a new world record, the latest Core i9-14900KS from Intel, which has quickly become one of the most sought-after CPUs for enthusiasts. With an impressive boost clock speed of 6.2 GHz – the highest of any consumer processor – and an overclocking potential that is second to none, the chip has taken the overclocking world by storm. So have the sockets, of course.

A team of elite overclockers at Asus have managed to overclock the Core i9-14900KS to an incredible 9,117 MHz on a single P-core, breaking several world records in the process. While this performance is undoubtedly impressive, it begs the question of its real-world utility. In a real-world scenario, a processor is unlikely to reach such speeds. However, in the world of overclocking, it’s all about pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, and stability only matters in terms of benchmark results.

To crack the 9 GHz mark, the team had to increase the chip’s voltage to 1.85V and cool it to -231 degrees Celsius with liquid helium. The mainboard used was the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore from Asus. The 9,117 MHz overclock of the Core i9-14900KS sets four new world records. The chip is now the fastest processor in the world and surpasses the previous leader, the Core i9-14900KF with 9,043.92 MHz.

While Intel’s new overclocking champion performs impressively in extreme OC, its usefulness for most consumers is questionable. With an MSRP of 689 US dollars, the Core i9-14900KS is significantly more expensive than the regular Core i9-14900K (MSRP 599 US dollars) and only offers marginal performance improvements. Alternatives such as AMD’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D offer gamers a significantly better price-performance ratio, while the Ryzen 9 7950X is superior in terms of productivity and is also cheaper.

Conclusion: The Core i9-14900KS is an impressive piece of technology and a dream for overclockers and every power supplier in the world. For most users, however, the chip is too expensive and offers too little added value compared to cheaper alternatives.

Nein, Tomshardware sind keine Kollegen mehr.

Schade, dass wir nichts über den Verbrauch erfahren.

und in China ist ein Sack Reis umgefallen. Solche Extreme interessieren doch keinen. und dann noch nichtmal 100MHz mehr als der vormals schnellste 14900KF
