The table below shows the key features and the main difference between the special edition and the standard one. I9-9900KS optimizes CPU frequency to 5.0 GHz turbo on all cores for the ultimate gaming experience with 8 cores and 16 threads. This SKU also has a higher base frequency of up to 4.0 GHz, but the TDP(thermal design power) could hit the streets with 127W. In this article we will explain why you should pick i9-9900KS and give the suggestion to choose the most suitable motherboard for you.

Why Choose i9-9900KS?

The i9-9900KS processor is the best choice for Alpha DIY gamers and enthusiasts who seek the best gaming processor that Intel has to offer with the most frequency possible, as well as the exclusivity of a special edition part with very limited available quantity. Compared to the aggressive AMD Ryzen™ 3000 series processors, the biggest advantage for i9-9900KS is all about the single-core performance and the frequency that gamers really need.
 
 
In this year, AMD released the amazing Ryzen 3000 series with up to 16 cores and 32 threads that push the multiple-core processors to the limit, but compared with Intel processors, there is still a gap for the single-core performance. Another problem is the CPU frequency. Ryzen 3000 series processors are still difficult to reach to 4.5GHz, which is an obvious difference from the fact that Intel has already moved forward to 5GHz. In depth, the relatively low utilization rate of all multiple cores indicates that the game performance improvement brought by core frequency is more obvious.

Gaming with 5GHz frequency at 8 cores is definitely cool! In comparison with the 9900K all-core 4.7GHz, the 9900KS is undoubtedly more powerful. Certainly, users can overclock the standard 9900K or even 9700K to reach the full-core 5GHz frequency, but the high-voltage might damage your CPU or even crash your whole system! That's why users need the i9-9900KS so as to pursue the ultimate gaming performance.
