Intel Core i9-14900KS Leaks Out: 6.2GHz Boost Clock with 409W Power Draw

Intel’s Core i9-14900KS (S stands for Special Edition) has leaked out over at the OCBase. A factory-overclocked variant of the 14900K, it features a higher boost clock of 6.2GHz (vs. 6.0 GHz). The increased operating clock comes at the cost of higher power consumption. While the Core i9-14900K tops out at 253W (PL2), the 14900KS has an upper limit of 409.7W, with an average power consumption of 331.58W during the OCBase test.

The Core i9-14900KS has a higher base power (PL1) of 150W, up from 125W on usual K-series chips. The unit tested on OCB is a production unit rather than an engineering sample, so the official release shouldn’t be too far away.

Apart from the power and clocks, the specs are identical to the 14900K, with a max temperature of 100C. The E-cores have also been bumped up from 4.4GHz to 4.5GHz, with an LLC clock of 5GHz. Like the Core i9-13900KS, the 14900KS should retail between $700 and $750.
